Free Pattern Friday: Minnie Mouse Amigurumi

SAM_2787More pictures and a downloadable PDF of the pattern are available on Ravelry.

Heeey, apologies for the lack of patterns this month, but here’s a fancy one for FREE because I like not being sued by Disney. Also, in an attempt to have a more reliable schedule, I’ve decided Free Pattern Friday will be every other week. Regular patterns will be posted whenever they’re finished, as per usual. I’m also considering making “Mystery Pattern Monday” a thing where you have to figure out what you’re crocheting as you go. This is mainly an excuse for me not to take pictures but shhhhh.

Onto the actual pattern for this week. Outside of The Lion King I’m not a Disney person at all (if I’m honest Mickey and Minnie look a bit creepy to me); this was just made as a gift. There’s no Mickey pattern yet, but I’ll probably tweak this a bit and make it an upcoming Free Pattern Friday. The pattern itself is pretty straight-forward, there’s just a lot of pieces and a lot of sewing (my fingers hurt).

Final piece should measure about 6″ tall.

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: Bubble Seal Amigurumi

SAM_2690SAM_2692

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: 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.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

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.

Free Pattern Friday: Freezer Bunny Amigurumi

fbunnyAll

A 5″ tall amigurumi of the Freezer Bunny from The Sims games.

Tooootally haven’t made this guy before, and certainly not twice. Nope, not me. But this is the last one ever I promise

Lately I’ve been playing more with shapes and working limbs and bodies in one piece, which isn’t too hard to do, but it’s a huge pain to write out what you’re doing. I tried to be clear but I also didn’t want to write a novel, so let me know if there’s any questions. Just to double check I did go and follow the pattern to make a test piece and I got it to come out, so hopefully it shouldn’t be too bad.

And because I love comparing old crap to new crap, here’s all three Freezer Bunnys:

fbunnyCompare
I used the same color light pink in all three pieces. Welcome to bad lighting meets bad photoshopping.

Well that was a horrifying trip down memory lane. You can find the patterns for the first two on my old blog, but why would you want to? No link because I’m pretending it doesn’t exist.

I’ve also finally started using chain one, turn (c1t) in my patterns. Normally I don’t chain one when turning. I have no real reason why. I have no real reason to start chaining one. But I guess it’s happening so whatever.

Candy corn guy probably coming out next FPF. Or maybe a bat. Whichever one I like the least. 😛

Free Pattern Friday: Bumblebee Amigurumi

beeAll

Iiiiiiiiiiit’s Friday. Here’s a pattern of a 3″ tall bumblebee.

Little piece of advice: don’t buy Stardew Valley unless you want to lose a month of your life. Not that that happened to me or anything, no siree.

I don’t have much to say about this, just kinda practicing embroidering eyes and stuff.

Pattern: Blobfish Amigurumi

A 2” tall, 5” long amigurumi of a blobfish.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

So a couple of weeks ago I randomly remembered that this creature exists and decided to crochet it. This was the first time in a while I played with weird body shapes and I think it turned out pretty good. Pretty blobby.

Apologies for no Free Pattern Friday last week, but very bad things happened on Thurday. Veeeery bad things. Bad things on top of  bad things. Ol’ blobby’s face here pretty much sums it up. But at least I’ve been super motivated to crochet lately so I have a bunch of patterns ready to be typed up. Might be a free one this week but I just frogged what I was working on because perfectionism is a crippling disease. Off to think of something quick and simple to make.

Pattern: Mister Fox Amigurumi

A 4.5″ tall amigurumi of a cute little foxy guy.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Hi, so I died again. Sorry ’bout that. But the good news is I finally have my crocheting life (pretty much) sorted, and by that I mean I have now decided I will only* use Stylecraft Special DK yarn for my amigurumi. There, done, decision final. You have no idea how much it has been agonizing me to keep using a whole bunch of different types of yarn with different sizes, quality, colors, etc. So my raging perfectionism has led me to Stylecraft and I freaking love it why haven’t I been using this the whole time the past 5 years have been pointless without you in my life. Any who, I’ve sold all my yarn that’s not near DK/sport** size and once I use up the rest of it (which is still 2 big bins of yarn but whatever) I will switch over to my new love.

*Unless I need a color they don’t have
** Seriously I will never understand yarn sizes. I have sport weight yarn that is pretty much the exact same size as the DK weight. Why are they different? I dunno, maybe I’m just stupid.

Onto what you actually care about. Here’s a brand new pattern, a fox that I have dubbed Mister Fox because I can’t think of any name for it besides “fox” and that’s super bland. So I added a generic word. I am very creative. Anyway, I would promise that I absolutely have more patterns that are going to be posted very soon, but every time I say that I don’t do anything for 4 months so I’m not going to say it.

Happy crocheting and all that jazz.
