Oddish Crochet Pattern

This  little project is a good reminder to us all (including me) that not all that looks simple are actually that easy to make ^^; Well it’s not that he is that hard to make, but come on – when you saw this round fella with five pieces of sprouts and two stubble feet, you’re gonna be like “Everyone can make that. Piece of cake.” Ummm nope.

Bulbasaur Crochet Pattern

The pokemon craze is still around the corner! The pikachu pattern I posted last week was seriously the biggest hit, it has 500 views in a few first hours of publishing. Thank you so much guys, I was really surprised and happy. Therefore, here is a little gift for you!🙂 He is absolutely tiny (barely 6 cm long) yet so squishy! Also, since I got an input that not everyone could crochet I will make this guy available in my etsy shop (button on the right side of the page).

Fox Pouch Tutorial

Not everything cute is hard to make. This is what I had in mind when creating this project. In Making Sense of Amigurumi #1 and #2 we mostly use the round concept, however this time I am going to show you the basics of making an oval shape, which is used to make this cute mint fox pouch.

Awhile ago I stumbled upon this tutorial on how to crochet an oval written by Louie from Louie’s Loops (check his page out he has TONS of awesome tutorials including crochet basics, basic shapes, geekery amigurumi, etc). I am posting the oval pattern he made (contacted him for permission and he immediately said yes!) then decided to use it to make a very simple and easy pouch. Often, the cutest things are actually simple (just look at all those Japanese characters!). When creating my own designs, the thing that I always try to keep in mind is keeping things simple and not think too much or try too hard.

Dumbo Octopus Crochet Pattern

Marine creatures has been my favorite thing to make the past few weeks. Maybe cause they swim around in my head (oh the bad pun, lol). Anyway I do realize I need to start making other DIYs other than toys and perhaps even non-crochet ones, so I already prepared a few projects. The bad news is, the supplies came from overseas so it would take awhile before they get here and I can get started, but I’ll see if I could come up with something fun beforehand ^^;

Making Sense of Amigurumi #2

Yes fellas, we are dissecting pusheen! No, we are nut cutting down that chubby adorable cat. Rather, we are using the pusheen crochet pattern I have posted few weeks back to learn a little more, on how to make sense of crocheting cute critters. Please do keep in mind that the technique for crocheting animals and others like doilies quite differs.

I believe there is a theory for everything. Therefore I believe there is a theory to understand the basics of amigurumi in order to find a logical way to design items (although it might not work all the time, but for me it does work most of the time).
