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™‚

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

“You know nothing, Jon Snow.”

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™‚

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

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.

23 Feb

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

I crocheted Snape a little wand πŸ™‚

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

It was my first time to crochet a coat πŸ™‚
