Charm-ing! :)

I'm happy to blog that Cute Designs now has a new category of Kawaii Supply Charms. Lately I have been enjoying making little fimo charms and turning them into mobile phone charms, especially cupcake charms. :) I love cupcakes!

I thought I would open up a new shop section incase people were interested in purchasing charms for their own craft projects. These are just a few to get the new section open but I have many more planned and coming soon. :)

Amigurumi Cocoa Bears

I'm happy to be introducing Cocoa Bears to Cute Designs. :) I hadn't made any traditional looking bears for a while so thought I would have a go and brown being the obvious colour for a bear of course.

Didn't take me long to think brown - chocolate - cocoa... :) Hope you like them, it's been fun making them. They are available to adopt at and my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Little Lambs

I love lambs and sheep and think they look so cute all out in the fields together. :) With this in mind I had to have a go at making little lambs and I was pleased with how they came out. Small but full of cute. :)

They can be adopted from or from my etsy shop. :)

Chocolate Cupcakes

I was in a baking mood this morning and decided to make some cupcakes since I hadn't made any for a while. :) Yummy.

Turned them into chocolate iced ones with chocolate sprinkles. Gave some to my family and to my boyfriend's family - not many left now. :P

Little Plush Panda

I hadn't made anything purely out of felt for quite a while so I thought I'd make something new and fun and instead of doing my large plushies I thought I'd make something smaller. :)

I came up with this little cute Panda which can be found in my etsy shop here. :)

I quite enjoyed making it and might make other animals in a similar way.

Amigurumi Guinea Pig

Some time ago I was asked to do a custom order for a guinea-pig. I love guinea-pigs and have owned several over the years so I jumped at the chance of creating one as I hadn't made one before. :)

I was pleased with how it came out and meant to do more of them but then got caught up with other projects and forgot. I remembered about then again as I was watching the trailer for the new film G-Force which is out soon so I decided to make another guinea-pig and you can find it on my etsy shop here. :)

I think guinea-pigs have the cutest little faces! :D I want to make more in other colours.

Chocolate Sandwich Cake

I hadn't done any baking for a little while as it's just been too hot here lately to have the oven on for long. But now that it's cooler I thought I'd make something and opted for a chocolate sponge cake with icing. Mmmmm......

Haven't made a sandwich cake for years so made a change, I think it came out ok. Tastes nice anyway. :P

Amigurumi Grey and White Cat

Here's another little amigurumi critter I made before I went away. :) This time it's a cat and the huge eyes on it make me smile. :D

It's available to adopt from my etsy shop here.

Amigurumi Pink and Yellow Monkey

I've been busy trying to get some of my crochet animals back in stock as well as making more fimo charms.

But in the meantime until I get those finished here's a little pink and yellow crochet monkey I completed a while ago but didn't get a chance to list before I went on holiday. :)

It can be found at my etsy shop here.
