nuts and bolts

Hello!  Today I'll be sharing the last amigurumi I made during my crochet frenzy.  I haven't been crocheting much recently except for this one little project I'm kind of procrastinating with.  I really do love this last one because I think it came out really cute. This is a little crocheted robot designed by Bubblegum Belles .  You can find the pattern HERE .  Sometimes I purchase the patterns especially if they are really cute.  But a lot of designers do list their patterns for free too on their blogs so I always check to see if they have a blog or not.  It's also important to read their pattern listing too if you are purchasing to see whether they are for personal use or also for commercial use.  Here is a different view of him.  Happy that he is able to sit on his bottom.  I actually cut out 2 felt hearts using a heart die, blanket stitched them together, and then hot glued the heart to the robot.  I tried stitching one heart directly onto the robot but it wa

Happy Purr-thday

Hello!  Just a quick stop in today to share a cute amigurumi kitten. I crocheted this using a pattern by Sarah Sloyer.  You can find the pattern HERE .  The trickiest part were the ears but she has a video tutorial which really helps. I really like the profile of this kitty.  He looks so plump! And I like the stripes on his back and the tail too. I stamped a punny cat tag for this kitty too.  The stamps are from MFT. Hope you are enjoying the weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy to be stuck with you

Hello all!  I still have a few more amigurumi to share.  See, I have been crocheting more!  It's been keeping my hands busy.   Here is a kawaii cactus I crocheted from a pattern by Super Cute Design .  I actually got the pattern for the cactus bunnies but decided not to put the bunny ears and face on the pot.  Instead, I added facial features to the cactus.  The cactus bunnies are cute but I do love the face on the cactus too.  I added this skinny tag that I stamped with a sentiment from My Favorite Things. This cactus is so sweet and fits in the palm of my hand.  I used Lion Brand's 24/7 cotton yarn except for the flower on top which is acrylic yarn, I think probably from Red Heart yarn. I have two more crocheted projects to share.  Hopefully I'll post about them soon. Thanks so much for stopping by!

crochet pineapple purse

Hello!  I know I have been sharing lots of crocheted projects lately.  I have been crocheting more than card making but I think I'll be making more cards soon to stock up my shop again.  I have a lot of stamps that have yet to be used!  I think I may need to do another destash sale.  Today I have a kawaii pineapple purse to share made from a pattern by Stephanie from All About Ami .  The pineapple purse pattern is HERE .  Stephanie has some of the best patterns in crochet blogland.  I love that she takes the time to photo some of her crocheting steps because it makes the pattern that much clearer especially when it can get confusing about where to place your next stitch. Took a photo after I crocheted part of the pineapple and placed the eyes, mouth and some pink cheeks.  I used Lion Brand's 24/7 yarn too that the pattern was made in. I thought about lining this purse since the inside would show the safety eyes and stitches but then opted not too because lining this p

wishing you good fortune

Hello all!  It's a pretty dark and rainy morning today.  Hoping we get some sunshine soon because we have plans to be outdoors later. Today I have another cute amigurumi to share.  I used a pattern by lalylala .  She's got a very unique style for sure and I love her imagination.  She has an Etsy store too HERE .  I decided to try her maneki neko pattern which comes in her New Year's Eve pattern set.  It is really cute! He's only a few inches tall and fits in my hand.  I used Lion Brand 's 24/7 cotton yarn with a 2.0mm hook.  I did have to do his legs a couple times to get it right and almost did give up but happy I got to finish him cause he is really cute. He has a tail and that actually helps to prop him up a bit because he doesn't stand on his own two feet!  Changing yarn colors in this pattern was not too difficult either once you get the hang of it. I like his paw that is raised inviting good fortune. I made a tag for him too using stamps
