My Amiguru-Minis

21 Sep

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They look like chubby baby superheroes 🙂

Here’s a yuppie zombie I made based on the pattern of Christen Haden’s book called Creepy Cute Crochet 🙂  I just added arms and legs.

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 🙂

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

Just to give you an idea how small these doll are… Here is cute little Erin holding Elsa 🙂

I’ll be making more of these amiguru-minis 🙂  Stay tuned 🙂

I really want to do more characters from Game of Thrones but their costumes are so detailed.  Oh let’s see what I can come up with 🙂

Hope you all had a restful weekend 🙂

 

 

Chinkee

Here’s a short post to brighten up this gloomy Monday 🙂

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I also made her two necklaces.  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.  Hihi… 🙂  She’s one of the few who has a smile on her face.

Have a great week ahead, my friends, from me and Chinkee! 🙂

The Googlees by Crow’s Nest

My latest project was a set of twelve toys.

They were inspired by one of my favorite arts and crafts item… Those googly eyes 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

My personal favorite….  Two cats and a bear in hats and scarves 🙂

My son loves them all 🙂

This was one was inspired by my handsome husband.  Hahaha! 🙂  This is his usual get-up when he goes on his Sunday bike rides.

And this is Snow.  We both love big glasses and bags.  Can’t have enough of those 🙂

Watch out for my next set of twelve 🙂

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.  Her name is Anna 🙂

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I crocheted Snape a little wand 🙂

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It was my first time to crochet a coat 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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

Have a great Sunday, everyone! 🙂
