Ballerina

This one was an order placed by an expectant mom who wanted a little ballerina for her baby. It was a nice order to get, because I was just crocheting in the shop when she showed me a picture and asked “Hey, can you make this?” And I said yes!

I really liked the long-arm long-leg style of amigurumi dolls, and I think it’s definitely something I’ll be coming back to again.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Giant Elephant!

One of my favorite customers placed another order!

I was super pleased with how this one came out; I don’t often make things for myself, but I fell in love with this elephant. I might make one for my own kids someday when I have them!

Also, tea time!

Wooloo!

So the new pokemon games recently(ish) showed off some pictures of the next generation of pokemon! Among them, I think the most popular is this little sheep pokemon, Wooloo!

This was one I didn’t have any orders for, but I couldn’t resist. The super puffy stitch was difficult to pull off (and it killed my hands!) but I think it came out super cute.

Puppy Dog Pals

Another one that was impossible to make without the theme running through my head!

I got an order for just one of the puppies, but decided to make them both so I could write a pattern for them (and have them for a picture.)

But then I got another order for the other one, so it all worked out!

You can check out the pattern here.

Christmas in July!

I’ve been waiting since January to make this post! After Christmas, I had so many Christmas-themed things that I could finally post on media without spoiling gifts…. but they were now out-of-date. So I decided to wait until July and do a Christmas in July post!

First off, here’s one of my favorite dolls that I’ve ever made!

I don’t make a lot of things for myself. I’m more into giving and sharing, but I have to say that I love this little decoration! Especially her style in clothes.

Speaking of which…

My nieces get a sweater every Christmas, and this was this year’s! I’m wondering if I’m getting myself in over my head with this tradition, but tradition is tradition. And look how happy they look!

Speaking of happy:

Ugly sweaters in general are just my thing. This cozy was a gift, but this year I might make one for myself. It almost hurt to give away.

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

More little Pokemon!

These are quickly becoming my favorite things to crochet! When they announced the new game coming out, I decided right away to crochet one of the new starters. I’d settled on Sobble, but I didn’t have the yarn colors for it, but I did gave the colors for Grookey! Therefore:

 

I also made a Bounsweet on my husband’s insistence. “They look like they’d be easy to make,” he said. So I decided to make him one for Valentine’s day. (I know, it was a LONG time ago, but I’m only doing one post a week, so I’ve gotta pick my post timing, here.)

 

Happy Friday, Everyone!

 

Pillows!

I’ve gotten a couple of pillow orders lately! The first is a style that I’ve made before, but in the Alabama colors, since it’s an elephant:

The same customer ordered a Longhorn pillow to use as a gift. I’m pretty pleased with how this one came out! It was pretty touchy for a while as I was making it, and I wasn’t sure if it would come out looking good. But it did!

Lately, I got an order from a woman whose cat died recently. She showed me a picture of a black cat with stark orange eyes and asked me to make a pillow in resemblance to him. This one was tricky because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to shape him. I started off with a more 3D head before realizing it looked awkward in pillow-form. I also made the body square, which was more realistic, but it just didn’t look good. So I unraveled it all and decided to go for a bulkier design, which I  think came out cute! And she ended up loving it, too.

Bonus: a family member’s rabbit fell sick, so I asked if there was anything I could make for her. But my family member has two rabbits, so when he asked for a blanket, I decided to make one for both of them. Couldn’t leave one left out! You can’t read the writing too well on the black-and-white, but it says “Bear,” the bunny’s name.

Happy Friday, Everyone!
