Crochet Cat is Back!

17 Aug

Hi my dear friends, so sorry I haven’t been posting much lately.  I do have a lot of new restos and makeup products to share with you… But I’ve just been so busy with my new project right now. Haha!

I’ve always enjoyed crocheting 🙂  I used to make these flower pins and scarves.  These were taken years ago!  I think it was about 2008-2009, I think?  I recently re-opened my stash of yarn and hooks.  And what can I say??? I’m addicted to this craft again!

I used to sell these scarves at a friend’s shop and some I gave away as gifts 🙂

But this reincarnated addiction has changed a little bit.  Hehe I’m not into making fashion accessories anymore.  Now that I have a three year old son, I’ve started making Amigurumi toys for him.  Amigurumi are crocheted dolls 🙂  Here are my recent creations with the help of the book “Crobots: 20 Amigurumi Robots to Make” By Nelly Pailloux 🙂

My son named this Crobot “WOP”.

This one he calls, “Baby Wop”.

And this one was for me. LOL! A hippie Matryoshka doll 🙂

And because my son absolutely loves the Avengers, I tried making him an Incredible Hulk doll.  Turned out better than I imagined. Haha!

I would like to thank the Hook Monster for providing a great pattern for a non-pro hooker like me 🙂  Check out her cute version of the Hulk 🙂  And also many thanks to EssHaych for providing a tutorial on how to attach the hair 🙂

I am so excited to move on to my next project.  I’ve brought out my red and yellow yard…  Guess who’s coming up next??? 🙂

      Hi Dennisse 🙂

      Thank you so much for visiting my blog! 🙂 Do you also crochet? I started making these dolls for my son, just for fun 🙂 I am so happy he loves them 🙂 I thought they would be just sitting on the shelves but he really plays with them and wants them by his side when he sleeps 🙂

      I wasn’t planning on selling these dolls but I’ve been getting several inquiries. Haha! Now I’m thinking, I JUST MIGHT. Haha! 🙂

      I shall be posting photos of the 4 dolls I’ve already made (Ironman, Thor, Hulk and Captain America). Let me know which is your son’s favorite 🙂

      I’ll inform you when I’ve posted them already 🙂

      Thanks again, Dennisse 🙂

      Much love,
      Crow’s Mum

    […]  Haha!  Ironman was actually the second doll I made for my son.  In my past post about me going back to crocheting, I chose to do the Incredible Hulk first because it seemed like the easiest one  I didn’t […]
