Pattern: Bunny Plant Amigurumi

SAM_2699Potted bunny yay

I made a similar pattern for Free Pattern Friday ages ago, but I wanted a bigger and cleaner looking one so here we are. I also added a few cute little details and stuff. Just a heads up that you’ll be working around the posts for the pot, so make sure you know how to do that.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

I don’t really know which pattern is coming next. I’ve got a few written down that I need to remake to take pictures. I’m also debating making both Pikachu and Eevee amigurumi in anticipation of the possible new Pokemon games maybe. Who knows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Free Pattern Friday: Mini Slime Amigurumi

SAM_2743More pictures and a downloadable PDF of the pattern are available on Ravelry.

The slime is happy it’s Friday, are you?

I’ve never played a Dragon Quest game before because it’s not really my thing, but Dragon Quest Builders was awesome and had me glued to my switch for about 2 weeks. It was great for me because while I love Minecraft, I prefer to have clear goals that I need to accomplish. Can’t wait for the second one!

In honor of beating the game, I decided to crochet the derpiest looking creature ever. I called this one a mini slime because I just finished a larger version of a slime that I’m not sure what I’m going to do with just yet.

There should be a regular pattern coming sometime this weekend. It’s cute. :3

Final piece should measure about 3″ tall.

Free Pattern Friday: Onigiri Amigurumi

SAM_2709More pictures and a downloadable PDF of the pattern are available on Ravelry.

Didn’t I just do this? This week went by super fast. Anywho, this was an exercise in working with different shapes. Let me know if you have any questions because it is a bit unusual. It was actually pretty fun trying to figure out how to make it work. I’ve never actually had onigiri but I definitely want to try it sometime.

Also, sorry for two white patterns back-to-back. If anyone has trouble seeing it properly let me know and I’ll tinker with the picture.

Final piece should measure about 2″ tall.

Free Pattern Friday: Bubble Seal Amigurumi

More pictures and a downloadable PDF of the pattern are available on Ravelry.

Happy Friday! Have a seal (thank you Pokemon for making me doubt how a four letter word is spelled).

A little guy that I whipped up quick. I’m not used to making small amigurumi so this was good practice for me. I called him a bubble seal because he’s the shape of a bubble. Truly I am the best at naming things. Also I updated the Free Pattern Friday banner a bit. No biggie.

Final piece should measure about 2″ tall.

Pattern Update: Chubbachu Amigurumi

SAM_2582SAM_2585This is just a little update to my Chubbachu pattern. I fixed it up with the new pattern template and made a couple small changes. The main one being that I merged the stripes into the body rather than making them separate pieces to sew on. I’ve also changed it to be worked from the bottom-up instead of top-down. Plus the mouth is now brown instead of black and he has a nose to smell that sweet, sweet ketchup. I think that’s it.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Free pattern tomorrow!

 

Pattern: Amaterasu Amigurumi

SAM_2595

This is the pattern I’ve wanted to remake the most because originally I made it during my “felt period” and now I realize that felt is a big fat pain and I’m never working with it again. Also, I’m super excited that they’re bringing Okami over to the Switch! I’ve never actually beaten the game because my Wii remotes were crap and wouldn’t let me draw the lines properly. 😦

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Got a bit experimental on this one. I fiddled around with some slip stitches with the tail and the back legs are a bit tricky. Of course, I’m always happy to help anyone who’s having trouble.

So glad I’ve got this pattern out of the way and I never have to look at the ugly old version again. Upcoming posts include a minor update to my Chubbachu pattern and quite possibly a Free Pattern Friday.

Pattern: Puppy Dog Amigurumi + Major Update

SAM_2568

Skip to the bottom if you only care about the pattern.

Heeeeeeey so I’m a horrible person who hasn’t posted anything in half a year. Oops.

Basically there are two reasons I went missing. Reason one: I bought myself a Switch for Christmas and it has ruined all my free time. Reason two: There have been a myriad of minor annoyances about crocheting that combined together really put me off it. Luckily, I’ve been working on what I can do to fix these issues and I think I’ve got a good system set up.

So there’s going to be some changes to future patterns. The biggest one being I completely redesigned my pattern template. Not only does it look a lot nicer in my opinion, but it’s way less complicated and lets me write up patterns much quicker than my previous design. I’ve also bought myself a desktop photo-tent so I can snap good looking pictures quickly with significantly less use of Photoshop. And the last thing is that I’ve finally figured out what about my crocheting style has been irking me. I’ve realized that I mainly crochet from the top-down, when I should be crocheting from the bottom-up. An incredibly simple change that took me way longer than necessary to figure out. Durr.

TL;DR: Patterns should be coming more regularly now.

Also I fiddled with the blog design a bit. If you look up top you can see I made myself a little logo. Nothing fancy but I needed something to use as an avatar and stuff.


Onto the actual pattern.

As mentioned above, this is the first pattern made with my new system. It’s based slightly on a really old puppy pattern I made (no link because it’s ugly :P). The collar is a separate piece, so you can choose to leave it off. It’s cute. Not much else to say.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Happy crocheting and hopefully I’ll post again before Christmas. Heheh.
