Frog hat for Minette

Hello everyone!

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this already. Anyway, here is the crochet frog hat! 

I have been wanting to make animal hats because they are just so adorable! I really can't decide what to do first. I thought why not make something out of my leftover yarns! So, I dug through my yarns stash and found this really cute shade of green yarn. I thought of animals with green color and the first idea that came into my mind is a frog! And the shade of the green yarn is just perfect! Don't you think?

Here are some pictures!
As you can see the arms are quite longer than normal froggy arms. I made it like so because I thought it is just so cute that way. I am really tempted to make it longer but I am happy with this length. I thought that it would be nice if the flappy arm could be wrapped around the doll's neck, perfect for winter look! Too bad we don't have snow in our country.

The flaps or arms have little froggy fingers because of cou…

Cony and Brown from Line

Hi!
Remember Snoopy amigurumi? I was commissioned to make him by Miss Roxanne. Yeah, so now, she asked me again (yay!) to make another amigurumi for her.
This time she wanted me to make keychain amigurumi. She wanted me to make Cony (the bunny) and Brown (the bear) from a sticker of Line, a pretty popular messenger app in Asia. Anyway, she wanted me to make these two particular stickers.
First thought that came into my mind was "Oh my gosh! They are so cute!" and I was really excited and I said yaaas! Then it hit me, "Oh wow! How where do I start?" But, I was really excited for these projects!

I knew it's going to be challenging for me because they are pretty small and they pretty detailed! This time I really want to make it like a normal-sized keychain, not an oversized one (like what kind of happened to the Snoopy amigurumi). I had lots of fun making them.

The one with the XOXO was pretty much easier than the one with the bento. The bento, OMG! It could actually b…

Amber Update! My Blythe doll

Amber Update!

So, as promised, here are some pictures of my little Blythe doll sweetheart, Amber! Yaaay!



I was really excited when I got her. We actually went to pick her up on our way to the office that morning. When I got home, I immediately played with her and took some pictures. As you can see with my last post, Blythe doll, Amber
After playing with her, I started sketching the first outfit I would make for her. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find where my sketch is after making the dress! (Typical me >_< ) I will update you if ever I find it.  
I decided to make a white doll dress with white high-waist short underneath. The front of the skirt is shorter and the back is longer, but not too long. I used a portable sewing machine on the upper part of the dress. The sleeves and the skirt are hand-sewn because I am not really good with handling the sewing machine. I find it hard to use especially with the round shapes.
I actually made a lot of mistakes! The first batch I made w…

Blythe doll, Amber

Hey! Hey hey!

I got myself a Blythe doll! Yay! I'be been wanting to make dresses for Blythe dolls for a long time now and finally, my chance! :)

I'd like to intruduce to you, Amber! Here are some of her pictures!



Isn't she pretty!?! The yellow dress and the red shoes came with her. She has a default Blythe body. I named her Amber because of the color of her hair. It reminds me of amber. I really like the over-sized aqua ribbon of that dress. Don't you just love how it looks on her! 

By the time I post this, I'd already have some handmade clothes for her. This post is kind of late already but I thought I'd introduce to you my dolls in order of who I got first.    

I'm really glad I was able to find someone who sells this type of doll and can deliver to my country. It's really hard to find these kinds of dolls and way too expensive if I buy it here. I found some stores online and a lot of them are from abroad. I was too scared to try and order online and …

My recent friendship bracelet projects

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I've last updated you guys! I have been pretty cramped with work and to compensate for that, this post would be a little longer than most of my updates. Anyway, I've been making some friendship bracelets lately. Some of them are refurbished from my previous friendship bracelet projects. I hope you love them as much as I love making them!

►blue friendship bracelet - I've added some beads on the side and used a simple, circle metals as closure.
►black and white friendship bracelet - to keep it simple, I used only two colors and sleek diamond-shaped closure. I forgot the pattern I used for this one!
►macrame friendship bracelet - I used colorful threads for a tribal feel. I was planning to add beads and/or chains but decided to keep it simple. Should I add them on my the next macrame bracelet like this one? Please let me know. (Suggestions are always welcome! Leave it on the comments section.) Also, I used simple circle metal closure.

Lavender Infant Headband

Hello, everyone!
Found this lavender headband! I made this for a very cute baby of my friend. I was practicing with my hooks and thought of making something. So why not make a headband! 
Every morning, before I go to work, I see my neighbor with her grandchild, strolling. They are so sweet! I miss my grandma everytime I see them. She loves her grandchild so much. It really shows. So I wanted to make something for the baby. 

I used a fine Redheart yarn for this project. I chose lavander because I saw the baby wearing a dress close to this color and it really looked good on her! I used 5/0 aluminum crochet hook for this project.

So here it is! I hope you like it! Cheers!  🍻

Ribbon Pattern Blue-brown

Hi everyone!  This bracelet, as you can see is another ribbon-patterned friendship bracelet using blue and brown thread. I made friendship bracelet with this pattern with my previous friendship bracelets. I just can't get enough of these pattern! It looks really beautiful. I love that fact that this particular pattern is easy to follow. It really simple and beautiful! 
I still used Monaco mercerized yarn thread for this friendship bracelet. I still chose to braid the ends because with this, I could easily adjust the fit. 
I made several variation from this pattern: Colorful friendship bracelet Blue-green and violet friendship bracelet
I hope you like them too! Have a ncr day! Cheers! 🍻

Ems-gurumi

I present to you, Ems-gurumi!  Ems-gurumi, was comissioned by Miss Roxanne. Remember the Snoopy amigurumi? She loved it so much and now she wanted me to do another amigurumi for her. I was so happy since it's the second crochet project I made for her. It was a gift for her friend - so sweet!
Ems is the name of her friend. She is a nurse with a big personality. She always wear bright colored lipstick, mostly red! She has long hair. She loves to tie with a fishtail style. Roxanne wanted this amigurumi to put emphasis on that. So the lips should be big! Also, Roxanne wanted her to carry an oversized syringe! 
I used Redheart yarns for this project. The crochet hook that I used was 3/0 aluminum crochet hook. I used fiber fill for the stuffing. The eyes is made with a black yarn. 


As you can see Ems-gurumi has a very defined red lips as Miss Roxanne has reuqested. Also she's carrying a very large syringe and a scrub suit - nurse! A fishtail for her hair and a cute little blue bow to to…
