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

It was also my first time to use suede cloth as a cape 🙂

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 🙂

The Little Mermaid for Nikka

12 Nov

I got a request from someone thru Instagram to make an Ariel doll for her daughter.  She told me she would make sock dolls for her daughter and it just didn’t turn out the way she wanted.  So she asked me to make this for her daughter, Nikka.  The Little Mermaid, Nikka’s first love.

I’ve never met her.  I don’t know her.  But something told me that I must make this.  I must make this for Nikka.

Clang, I’m sorry if it took me so long to make this, I really wanted it to be perfect. But this doll will be in the hands of your daughter soon.

This is my gift to you… from one mother to another.

The Mighty Avengers Made of Yarn and Lots of LOVE

17 Sep

I have been so obsessed with making Amigurumi dolls for my son lately!

For those who don’t know, here is the definition of Amigurumi:  “It is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.  Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features, as is typical in Japanese culture.”

Now define “Anthropomorphic” for me, please… (talking to Wikipedia.)

Anthropomorphic:  Ascribing human characteristics to non-human things.

Ironman… definitely anthropomorphic!  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 even have the right color of green yarn for it.  But when Damien saw the finished product of the Hulk doll I made for him,  he got so excited!  And his reaction just made me want to make Ironman next 🙂

And here he is with my son 🙂

After making the Ironman doll, my son immediately said, “Mama, Thor is next!  Please make Thor!”

“I’M ON IT, SON!” – Happy Mama

Thor is still missing his hammer! Coming soon! 🙂

This is the reason why I love to crochet… Seeing that big smile on my son’s face when I finish a doll 🙂

And lastly, Captain America… My personal favorite 🙂

Check out his mighty shield! 🙂

Ironkid vs. Captain America… Who will win??? 🙂

And here they all are… my very first collection of hand-made dolls:  The Mighty Avengers 🙂

These dolls are just made of yarn and they don’t have high tech-weapons or karate chop action features but my son loves them just as much as his high-tech toys 🙂

“Mama, you made me another treasure.”  That’s what he says every time I hand him the doll I just finished 🙂

It just inspires me to keep making these dolls for him, I mean “toys”.  My husband insists that we call them toys instead of dolls. LOL! 🙂

Expect more Amigurumis to come!  Finishing up another superhero right now 🙂

It doesn’t take a lot to create something you’re very proud of and to make your kids happy.  Just a little yarn, a little time and patience 🙂

Happy Monday to all! 🙂

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??? 🙂
