Cute Vietnamese doll I bought in Ben Thanh Market πŸ™‚

 

I miss my crochet hook so much.Β  If I’m not holding a makeup brush, I’m probably holding a beaker making perfume.Β  And now, as I look back on our photos during our trip to Vietnam with my husband, I remember the cute crocheted dolls we saw… I so want to pick up my hook and create my handmade creatures once again πŸ™‚

Last year, I was obsessed with making superheroes… I think this year will be different.

Lately, I’ve been crocheting smaller dolls.Β  I realized they’re much simpler to make than my big dolls.Β  I call them my amiguru-minis πŸ™‚Β  I used almost the same pattern for the superheroes and just made everything smaller πŸ™‚

They look like chubby baby superheroes πŸ™‚

And since I’m such a fan of Game of Thrones, I crocheted my favorite character, Jon Snow.

“You know nothing, Jon Snow.”

Can’t wait for the fifth season πŸ™‚

And finally, I was able to crochet Elsa, a character the litte girls love.Β  I haven’t even seen the movie! Haha!

Here’s a short post to brighten up this gloomy Monday πŸ™‚

I just wanted to share with you all my latest handmade creation, her name is Chinkee.Β  I wanted her outfit to be a simple black dress so she will always be in style, ready for her meetings πŸ™‚

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also made her two necklaces.Β  One is a key and the other is a keyhole heart that says, “made with love”.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Chinkee is probably the happiest doll I’ve made so far.Β  Hihi… πŸ™‚Β  She’s one of the few who has a smile on her face.

Have a great week ahead, my friends, from me and Chinkee! πŸ™‚
