Hey guys…Sorry for disappearing for awhile. As I have mentioned in instagram, I have a lot on my plate (like this curry, haha).

Anyway, I am still in progress on a collab project and a new pattern for you. I am hoping to finish them as soon as I can. Honestly starting this Monday I will most probably have more workload in the office so crossing fingers that I could manage that well. I will do my best!

Thank you very much for sticking around, I really didn’t expect the traffic to stay stable even during my absence. I will try to make up to it. See you soon! šŸ™‚

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 ovalĀ written by Louie from Louie’s LoopsĀ (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.

Mermaid Pusheen Crochet Pattern

IMG_20160620_1.png

Last time I did sort of a poll in instagram to see if you guys would be interested in having a pattern for a mermaid Pusheen, and the response was great! I love Pusheen myself (I’ve been dying to get a hand of a Pusheen Cafe mouse pad but still no luck yet) and mermaids are always my favorite (though pusheenicorn and pusheenosaurus are cute, too). So as promised, here is the pattern. I honestly already anticipated the response by taking pictures to help you with each steps, since it’s rather tricky compared to my previous patterns. I do think pictures helps for these ones so I included them.

The pattern provided here is only the pattern for the mermaidĀ tail. The pusheen pattern is the same as the one I posted beforeĀ here. The only difference I made was that I slip stitched the tc to the same place for the ear parts, which made the ears slightly pointier. For this pattern of course I would suggest you to make one Pusheen first before the mermaid tailĀ šŸ˜€

Succulent Love

IMG_20160601_1

Who isn’t in love with tiny succulents lately? I bet everyone you stumble across in any social media does. Well, this time I decided to crochet one because I decided to make something else once in awhile instead just toys. This won’t exactly be a tutorial but I will give you a detail, or rather, run down of the process. Let’s start with the larger pot.

Now I have been crocheting for a little over a year, so I wanted a little more challenge – which is why I’ve tried mixing different technique and methods. The pots, first of all were made of natural ingredients based air dry clay (I used fimo brand), cut round with a cutter then bent to form a bowl, dried for 48 hours and sanded. The yarns I used for the big cactus are regular sized (for 3 mm needle) yarns and regular sized eyelash mohair yarn to give the prickly effect. I crochet three yarns at once instead of one with a 5 mm needle. That said, there is nothing special about the pattern since I basically blind crochet both of the cactus. The flower on top is a simple pattern very similar to the one I have written before for the crystal doily tutorialĀ here.
