Amigurumi Polar Bear

I love crocheting my little bears. :)  With the weather turning colder and winter making more of an arrival I thought I'd make a little polar bear to add to the gang.  I think it turned out pretty cute.

Polar Bear has been hanging out with some of the other bears and all been getting a little boisterous. :P  As always the polar bear and others can be adopted at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Robots

For the last couple of years or so now I've been crocheting little robots and also my robots in love with the little hearts on their chests. :)  They've had little changes made to them over time but not much.

I've always wanted to go back and make a mini robot army in different colours and I've finally got round to creating it over the last couple of weeks.  Just took their piccies over the weekend and here they are. :)

These little guys will be available at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Puppy Dogs

At last here's something for the dog lovers out there.  For a long time now I've been meaning to crochet some dogs.  I must admit I'm not a dog lover, to be honest I've always been scared of dogs but I wanted to try and make something for the countless dog lovers out there. :)  And here they are. Two adorable little puppies.

They'll be up for adoption in my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Green Love Blobite

My Love Blobites aren't new but this green one is a new addition. :)  I was asked if I could make a custom order of a green one and it came out looking quite cute and all bright and green so I thought I'd add it to the selection :)

For those who aren't familiar with my Love Blobites you can read more and adopt one at my etsy shop. :)

UK Etsy Silly Sale Friday 8th October

I'm gearing up my shop for the UK Etsy Silly Sale ready for Friday 8th October.  Click here for Silly Sale items in my etsy shop.

So what is this about? You can view the main info thread here but basically we’re all getting ready for the festive season and clearing the decks before we deck the halls? Why not join in with the UK silly sale so we can all clear out those slow moving items, last season’s colours, discontinued lines and generally make our shops look great for the holiday while making a little money in the process.

He's up for adoption at my etsy shop.

Amigurumi Bunny Rabbits

Just a quick blog post today as it's been a busy day at work and I'm kind of in the mood to play lots of Dragon Quest on my DS this evening. :)

But I still wanted to introduce these two little characters.  They are my new amigurumi bunny rabbits and available for adoption at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Pink Marshmallow Monster

I was just having some fun and thought I'd sit down with my yarn and just start crocheting and see what I ended up with.  Well this quirky little thing was it! :P

I've called it a Marshmallow Monster and it came to be when a few pieces of marshmallow got squashed together and formed in to one.   It's up for adoption at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Fox Cub

For a little while now I've been thinking about crocheting a fox as it's an animal I haven't attempted before and thought it would go well with some of my Autumn Woodland creations.  I wasn't totally sure how I was going to do it though.  It was something I didn't get around to doing last year!

I doodled it first on a scrap of paper and then set to work and came up with this little cub.  I'm pleased with it.  I know it's not so traditional fox like but I made it to look how it would appeal more to me, lol.

It's up for adoption at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Acorns are back. :)

It's been a little while since I've made my Amigurumi Acorns but now seemed like the perfect time to bring them back in to my etsy shop. :)  This time I have made a new green one too as last time I just had brown and orange and I thought green was needed too. :)

All available at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Candy Corn

Here's another of my Halloween or Fall/Autumn ideas and this time it's Amigurumi Candy Corn. :) Fun to make and nice to use these colours together too.  Just something a bit different to make.

Y'know I've never actually seen a Candy Corn I don't think.... we don't really get them here in the UK.

Anyway these can be adopted at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Kittens

I love cats and kittens, cats are my most favourite animal ever so I thought I'd make a little batch of kittens in various colours. :)  Here is the little gang pictured above.  Light brown, black, grey, cream and ginger.

My mum just recently got two little kittens - one is a tabby and the other is black and white.  They are just totally adorable and so playful and fun to watch. :)

Anyway these little kitties will all gradually be going up for adoption at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Halloween Candy Corn Man

I was thinking about Halloween again last night as there are so many fun things you can make for it which usually you might not think of.  Well I ended up making this weird little guy who is an Amigurumi Candy Corn Man. :)

Now I know in the UK we're not much familiar with Candy Corn but in America they're a really popular sweet especially around Autumn and Halloween time.  He's weird but he made me smile. :P

He can be adopted from my etsy shop.

Amigurumi Giraffe

Just thought I'd share another of my new little creations with you and I was quite pleased with how this little giraffe came out. :)  Well I say "little" but it's a bit bigger than some of the things I've made and also took a while with all the various limbs and bits and pieces. :)  But I'm so pleased with it.  Actually made me want to "squee", lol. :D

Finishing this has given me some ideas and inspiration for other critters I could make so have doodled them in my notebook for another time. :)

This little giraffe can be adopted from my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Skeleton

Wow I didn't realise it had been so long since I updated my blog!  Almost a month, that has gone past so quickly! Been busy going to various music festivals and working, although I've also been busy making lots of new things but I just hadn't got them all photographed until now. :)

Prepare for much more regular updates in the near future as I unleash all my new stuff, heehee. :)

I'm starting off today with my Amigurumi Skeleton.  Over at the Theme Challenge Group on flickr their current challenge is "Graveyards" so I thought I'd join in and make this little Skeleton Dude since it's coming up to Autumn and then Halloween and all of that.

Amigurumi Skeleton can be adopted at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Turtle

Just thought I'd make a quick post to introduce my new Amigurumi Turtle I made recently. :)  He came out looking quite cute and chubby, heehee. :)  He's up for adoption at my etsy shop.

And how cool is it that within the next week or so on etsy you'll be able to browse items in your own currency?  I've been waiting about three years for that ever since I first joined etsy!!

All about the bears!

This last week or so has all been about the bears for me. :)  I started messing about with designs and made the one, and thought he looked quite cute but a little lonely on his own so I made another one.... and then I thought a dark brown bear would go nicely with the little gang so I made him... and then I thought a cream one had to be made... and there I had it - a little gang of chocolate brown bears. :)

They look so cute hanging out with each other and seem to have adopted personalities of their own.

See what I mean? :)

All these bears will be going up for adoption at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Panda.

Feels like a while ago since I updated my blog.  I've been a little busy lately working on some new designs.  I'll reveal those another time but I've been quite excited about them and also feeling quite inspired that I keep making new stuff.  Haven't got pictures of them yet but they'll be here soon. :)

So as well as working on new designs I've been busy making some custom orders for people.  I thought I'd share a couple on here.  One is an Amigurumi Panda which I loved making, it's been a while since I made a panda so that was cool to make.  And then a little Amigurumi Lamb which is going to be a pet for a Blythe Doll.  I hadn't thought about making pets for dolls before but I hope the doll with like it, lol. :)

Amigurumi Purple Bunny - Lilly

Lilly is a sleepy bunny, she loves to daydream and can barely keep her eyes open at times. She's very laid back and enjoys snacking on blueberries. :)

Lilly has just hopped in to my etsy shop. :)

Just a quick post to say congratulations to PaisleyJade who was picked at random to win my Amigurumi Lemon Cupcake. :)

Thanks to everyone for entering, it was a fun first giveaway for me.

Amigurumi Rainbow Drops

And now for something new. :)

These little things were inspired by rainbows.... obviously. :) They're called Rainbow Drops and it's thought these pretty little droplets of colour are formed when ordinary dull raindrops pass through the colours of a rainbow.

Loved making these and fun to use such bright yarn colours as I don't always get to use red and orange for example. :) These will gradually be listed for adoption at my etsy shop.

My first Giveaway - Cupcake anyone?

I've been meaning to do a giveaway for a while now as it seems fun and I also wanted to say a little thanks for all the cool people out there who have either followed me on twitter, liked/became a fan on facebook, supported my blog here or bought something from my etsy or folksy shops.  I am lucky to have such a nice bunch of people around me. :)

Well anyway I promised on my facebook that once it got up to 500 people "liking" me I'd have a giveaway and here it is.  It was really hard deciding what to give away for my first one but in the end I decided on an Amigurumi Lemon Cupcake.  :)  Cupcakes were one of the first things I started creating when I was teaching myself to crochet so I have a soft spot for them. I love cupcakes in general and hoping most of you do too.

To enter all you have to do is to leave a comment here or on my facebook telling me what your favourite item is from my etsy shop and make sure I have a way of contacting you, anonymous entries can't be included as I won't know who you are if you win. :)

The winner will be chosen at random.  The competition closes at midday on Sunday 4th July.  Good luck.

New Amigurumi Owls

It's been a busy week for me this week as I had a trip up to Liverpool to see some friends and also went to a concert, and then yesterday I was out at the Download music festival all day.  Luckily the weather stayed dry and I had a good time. :)

Tired today but I still wanted to blog about my new owls I made recently.  I love my little owls.  I must admit I'm not much of a bird person but I do like owls and thought I'd make a couple of new shades to go with the others I had so there's now a black/grey one and also a different shade of brown.

Available on my etsy shop as usual. :)

Amigurumi Cups of Tea

Quite a while ago now I crocheted a white cup of tea which is kind of unusual for me as I don't actually like or drink tea and coffee although I do like a hot chocolate.  Mmmm.......

For ages I've wanted to go back and crochet more cups of tea in other colours instead of just white and recently I made sure I did it and I thought I'd post them up on my blog. :)  It's cute seeing them all together.

Up for adoption at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Ice-Creams

Wow!  It's been such a hot weekend here in the UK!  That's quite unusual for us, heehee. :P  Especially in May.  Today in particular really has been hot.  Too hot for me if I'm honest as I don't like hot weather.

So I've been trying to stay cool by keeping in the shade, eating ice-cream and crocheting..... which then lead to me crocheting ice-creams too and I came up with these little cones flavoured in chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. :)  All up for adoption at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Kawaii Toadstall

I love Woodland things whether it be animals or things you find on walks out.  I've been meaning to do some toadstalls for ages as I like the look of them so recently began experimenting and this is result number one. :)  I thought it looked kind of cute although probably not the finished result I wanted that was in my head.  I plan to go back to them at some point but have been so busy with other things lately.

Anyway this little fungus is available to adopt at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Kawaii Strawberry

I've got a bit of a thing about strawberries at the moment and especially like taking them in to work to munch on as a nice treat. :)  Yummy!

So I thought I'd have a go at making one and this little thing is what I ended up with.  I've just listed it at my etsy shop. :)

Mmmmm.... Amigurumi Kawaii Cookies

Mmmm... I love cookies!  Especially chocolate ones with chocolate chips!  They're one of my fave treats so I decided it was about time I tried to make a plush one and this is what I came up with. :)  Calorie free cookies. :D

Perfect for any cookie addict and available at my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Happy Pill

I was in a silly mood yesterday and crocheted this little thing which is an Amigurumi Happy Pill. :)  I have no idea if there is any want for such a thing but it kinda made me smile so I thought I would throw it out there as that's the only way I'm going to find out, lol.

It can be adopted at my etsy shop. :)

Other news - I just baked chocolate chip cookies!  Mmmmm...........

Never enough time...

Do you ever feel that you can spend so much time online doing various things to promote your craft/shop that you don't get so much time to actually make stuff? :)  I used to feel a bit like that until I decided to cut down on some of the forums/websites I used to visit.  Just couldn't fit it all in.

I do still make time to update my blog here though and twitter and facebook but I wish I could do more. There just never seems to be enough hours in the day.

Today (with a little help from some monkey friends) I decided to have a bit of a sort out with some of the blogs I've been meaning to bookmark for ages.  I'm sure I've probably missed a few out though but I'm going to try and follow them on a more regular basis now.

Crochet wise I've been doodling some ideas as I've had a few going round my head. :)  I'm quite excited about them although not sure if I'll be able to get them to work yet.  I've started on one and it's going ok so far.  Will hopefully get them finished with some piccies soon.

Amigurumi Kawaii Pastel Bunnies

It's still all about the bunnies for me. :)  I have been enjoying crocheting this set of cute little bunnies all in nice pastel colours which I thought would look nice for spring. :)

Loved making these bunnies, they were fun and look so cute together.  They are up for adoption at my etsy shop.
