Cute Vietnamese doll I bought in Ben Thanh Market ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I miss my crochet hook so much.ย  If I’m not holding a makeup brush, I’m probably holding a beaker making perfume.ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Lately, I’ve been crocheting smaller dolls.ย  I realized they’re much simpler to make than my big dolls.ย  I call them my amiguru-minis ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I used almost the same pattern for the superheroes and just made everything smaller ๐Ÿ™‚

They look like chubby baby superheroes ๐Ÿ™‚

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

“You know nothing, Jon Snow.”

These two gentlemen are my son’s favorites.ย  They were inspired by the band called, “The Lumineers”.

Crochet Cat is Back!

17 Aug

Hi my dear friends, so sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I used to make these flower pins and scarves. ย These were taken years ago! ย I think it was about 2008-2009, I think? ย I recently re-opened my stash of yarn and hooks. ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

But this reincarnated addiction has changed a little bit. ย Hehe I’m not into making fashion accessories anymore. ย Now that I have a three year old son, I’ve started making Amigurumi toys for him. ย Amigurumi are crocheted dolls ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Here are my recent creations with the help of the book “Crobots: 20 Amigurumi Robots to Make” By Nelly Pailloux ๐Ÿ™‚

My son named this Crobot “WOP”.

This one he calls, “Baby Wop”.

And this one was for me. LOL! A hippie Matryoshka doll ๐Ÿ™‚

And because my son absolutely loves the Avengers, I tried making him an Incredible Hulk doll. ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Check out her cute version of the Hulk ๐Ÿ™‚ ย And also many thanks to EssHaych for providing a tutorial on how to attach the hair ๐Ÿ™‚

I am so excited to move on to my next project. ย I’ve brought out my red and yellow yard… ย Guess who’s coming up next??? ๐Ÿ™‚
