Professor Severus Snape for Anna

23 Feb

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Late last year, when I joined the Escolta Market, I met this really nice girl who loved Severus Snape.ย  Her name is Anna ๐Ÿ™‚

She asked me if I could make her a Snape handmade doll.ย  I got excited because I’ve never done any Harry Potter characters before so I agreed ๐Ÿ™‚

I crocheted Snape a little wand ๐Ÿ™‚

“There is no wand more powerful. It answers to you, and to you only.”ย  – Snape

It was my first time to crochet a coat ๐Ÿ™‚

I was really happy with how Snape turned out ๐Ÿ™‚ย  So sad to see him go but he’s now with Anna ๐Ÿ™‚ Check out Anna’s blog here! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m thinking of making Harry Potter now.ย  Let’s see.

Project: Counting Sheep

10 Jul

PROJECT: COUNTING SHEEP. ย A project I made especially for a friend’s baby ๐Ÿ™‚

photo 2

These are the sheeps’ stuffed bodies and legs. ย I love the clean, white yarn.

photo 5

These are the heads. Embroidered an X for their eyes.

photo 3

Perfect material to hang the sheep on the wooden ring. Found this twine in the Wrap Shop in Rockwell. Thanks, Dants, for helping me find this one! It’s perfect.

photo 4

Had to hang the bodies first before attaching the heads. Sounds so morbid. Haha!

Attached some extra yarn above their heads for some sheep bangs. Sheep bangs! Sheep bangs! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry, some of my friends are camera shy ๐Ÿ™‚

I was supposed to put a black sheep in the mix. There’s always a black sheep in the family. Haha! But my friend requested for a blue sheep instead ๐Ÿ™‚ Hi Blue!

Finally, after weeks of crocheting and assembling, they’re finally ready to meet their new owner! ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_9490lores

I was so bothered by what Dante said regarding the “X” eyes of the sheep. That in cartoons, it means they’re dead. ย LOL. Bought some wooden buttons for the eyes right away! I don’t want to give dead sheep!

IMG_9487lores

Now they’re wide-eyed and even cuter. Thanks, Dants! ๐Ÿ™‚ (Dante, my fiercest judge. LOL!)

To Margaux, my friend, I hope your son enjoys the company of my little fluffy buddies and will help him sleep more soundly at night ๐Ÿ™‚

Sweet dreams ๐Ÿ™‚

I Miss My Tokyu Hands

26 Jun

tokyuhands

One of the things I miss the most in Tokyo is TOKYU HANDS. ย Their motto is so true….

“When you visit, you find what you want!”

And you can lose some calories, too, because Tokyu Hands has about 7-9 floors of stuff I love… from arts and crafts to clown makeup to little gadgets and cameras to leather swatches… Ugh… love love love Tokyu Hands. ย My husband also loved the hardware and also the section that’s dedicated to shoe care ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t take that much photos of the store itself because I was just so overwhelmed with all the stuff you can find here. ย It’s so convenient! ย I mean, if you were to start a project, you can find everything you need in one place. ย It’s just so amazing.

They even have on-going workshops within the store. ย I can stay here all day, I tell you! ๐Ÿ™‚

photo 1

I think they were making leather wallets ๐Ÿ™‚

photo 2

This one, I wasn’t sure what they were making ๐Ÿ™‚ So fun!!

Out of all the stuff I saw in Tokyu Hands, I was hooked on these Hooked Zpagetti crochet hooks!!! Got me some new hooks, 10mm and 12mm sizes to match…

IMG_8997lores

…these Hooked Zpagetti yarn/cloth. ย It’s like shredded cloth! ย But the label says high quality recycled cotton ๐Ÿ™‚ I had to jump for joy when I saw these… (deep inside. Haha!)

IMG_8996lores

These were the chosen ones…

I’m planning to make tote bags out of these! ย They might be too heavy/warm for a scarf unless it’s thin. ย I’m so excited to start my Tote Project! ย Haha! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Watch out for it!

Have a happy Wednesday to you all! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is my latest amigurumi creation… The Dark Knight! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย And I think he is my secret favorite. ย Hehe…

IMG_8629lores

 

First of all, his basic color scheme are my two favorite colors. ย Black and grey.

It was also my first time to use suede cloth as a cape ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_8624lores

 

I used to crochet the capes as well but I like the way the suede cloth flows.

I’m very happy with how Batman turned out ๐Ÿ™‚
