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.”

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™‚

Project: Counting Sheep

10 Jul

photo 1

PROJECT: COUNTING SHEEP. Β A project I made especially for a friend’s baby πŸ™‚

photo 2

These are the sheeps’ stuffed bodies and legs. Β I love the clean, white yarn.

photo 5

These are the heads. Embroidered an X for their eyes.

photo 3

Perfect material to hang the sheep on the wooden ring. Found this twine in the Wrap Shop in Rockwell. Thanks, Dants, for helping me find this one! It’s perfect.

photo 4

Had to hang the bodies first before attaching the heads. Sounds so morbid. Haha!

Attached some extra yarn above their heads for some sheep bangs. Sheep bangs! Sheep bangs! πŸ™‚

Sorry, some of my friends are camera shy πŸ™‚

I was supposed to put a black sheep in the mix. There’s always a black sheep in the family. Haha! But my friend requested for a blue sheep instead πŸ™‚ Hi Blue!

IMG_9489lores

Finally, after weeks of crocheting and assembling, they’re finally ready to meet their new owner! πŸ™‚

IMG_9490lores

I was so bothered by what Dante said regarding the “X” eyes of the sheep. That in cartoons, it means they’re dead. Β LOL. Bought some wooden buttons for the eyes right away! I don’t want to give dead sheep!

IMG_9487lores

Now they’re wide-eyed and even cuter. Thanks, Dants! πŸ™‚ (Dante, my fiercest judge. LOL!)

To Margaux, my friend, I hope your son enjoys the company of my little fluffy buddies and will help him sleep more soundly at night πŸ™‚

Sweet dreams πŸ™‚
