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)_/¯

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.

 

Pattern: Bat Amigurumi

A 3″ tall amigurumi of a bat.

So this was supposed to be up last week but my computer decided to crash while I was editing the pictures and I was too frustrated to work on it for a bit. I’ve discovered that for some reason if I leave my camera’s SD card inserted and my computer falls asleep, when it wakes up I’ll be greeted with a lovely blue screen. :[

Anyway, this was another fun experiment, playing with different shapes and stuff. This little guy works up quick so you should be able to get it done before Halloween! Like with the newest Freezer Bunny amigurumi, the pattern can look confusing but just go slow and read carefully and it should be good. Of course, I’m always happy to help with any questions!

Got a pretty cute pattern for Free Pattern Friday this week. It may or may not be super fuzzy.

Pattern: Pumpkaboo Amigurumi

A 6″ tall amigurumi of the Pokemon Pumpkaboo.

Welp, it’s time to jump on the Halloween train and pump out a bunch of spooky scary patterns. I’ve never really done holiday-themed items but I’m totally selling out this year. I’ve got a candy-corn pattern lined up for Free Pattern Friday, and I’m currently working on a bat. Hooray for being boring!

I love Pumpkaboo’s design but I’ve never really used one in-game because I can’t stand Gen 6 for some reason. Plus it’s evolution isn’t nearly as cute. :[

I do have a couple non-holiday related patterns that are almost done so they should go up sometime soon. They’re both things I’ve already done but I completely overhauled the patterns. I know I do too much fixing of old stuff instead of new ones, but the holiday shenanigans should remedy that.

Pattern: Chubbachu Amigurumi

A 5″ tall amigurumi of a chubby Pikachu.

Fat Pikachu is best Pikachu.

Making this was a new experience for me. I don’t tend to go beyond 48 stitches around when doing amigurumi because I prefer them small, but I decided I would try something different. I planned how big I wanted it, made a little schematic, and stuck to it. I do like how it turned out, and planning out my amigurumi in advance instead of just winging it made my life a hell of a lot easier. Definitely going to stick to that.

I also made new graphics for my Etsy shop and this is the first  thing to make use of them. Now I just have to take pictures of everything again so it matches the new style. D:
Perfectionism is a disease.
