I've always wanted to learn how to crochet and about three years ago (er.. Spring of 2011), I finally had the time to crack open some books and start learning (In hindsight, Youtube might have been much easier). After a lot of practice making scarves, I began making plushes and have stuck mostly with that ever since (it's just so satisfying getting a toy after all that work :D). I focus on making animated/fan art characters because I enjoy working on them. The majority of these are my own original patterns besides a couple with link references to the patterns.

Regarding patterns, I have a few posted up. Because I learned so much from patterns that many people generously shared online, I'm hoping to give back a little by sharing some too :) I don't write all of them down though because I sometimes don't know how to describe what I'm doing when they get too complicated and I start winging things. I'm working on it though!

As for commissions, unfortunately, I don't do those. I don't really know how to set a price that would be fair for both parties and I just don't have the time! I will probably be much less productive for some time since I'm currently in dental school, but I'll be needing my study breaks :)

Thanks for the page visit :D

P.S. Please excuse my lack of photography skills!


If you would like to make a donation to fuel my yarn addiction and for the free patterns, I would be ever-so grateful! :dummy:

Hello!

I may not be finishing anything new for some time, so I figured I'd update you guys on what's going on in my yarn world and real life. :)  I also enjoyed reading where all of you are from in my recent poll!  I didn't realize I was in touch with so many aliens! =P

I decided to start a new project, despite all the unfinished stuff laying around.  I'm currently working on Deku Link!  It was meant to be a relatively quick project, but I of course started making him larger than I was planning to ^^;  And, after looking at all these photos online, there are so many details that I guess I had never noticed before I seriously decided to make him!  He may turn out proportional or slightly large compared to Skull Kid, but we shall see!  Cross your fingers for the former!  I am also almost done with an orange tiger in the same style as the white one.. it's just a matter of assembling.

End of crochet update so you may stop reading if you'd like :XD:

I'm currently fretting a little over taking my part I boards for school since my brain pretty much dumped 80% of what I've learned the past 2 years.  I have a little over a month to study, and on top of that, I'm trying not to seem completely clueless in clinic ^^;  I'm actually starting to enjoy meeting new people and improving my communication skills since I've always felt weak in that aspect.  I did run into a difficult patient the other day because of language barriers and probably age difference.  I won't go into too much detail with that.. she basically would not believe the explanation and treatment I proposed for her (a very quick, conservative, zero-cost procedure), even with my professor's support.  It was a good learning experience in dealing with patients, I suppose. :shrug:

Anyway, I am exhausted :faint:  Back to work!

Tanooki by aphid777
Tanooki
This funny squirrel-raccoon thing is apparently called a tanooki (tanuki)?  I think this particular one is from some manga.  My brother wanted one and since his birthday is coming up, I figured it was a good time to make it.  Took me several hours to finish.. the arms, feet, and dark brown markings are needle felted.  Hope you guys like him! :)

Tigger WIP by aphid777
Tigger WIP
Started on this today and pretty pleased with how he's turning out so far!  I was a little concerned about how the muzzle was turning out for a while, but I've been keeping at it for the past couple hours and this is what I have :)  I usually don't work on faces until the end, but I wanted to make sure I could pull off his face before continuing on with the rest of his body.  Enjoy!

:iconknitting-and-crochet: is also hosting a monthly challenge themed: Tim Burton!

Anyway, I had been planning on making this little guy for a while now.. and what better time than October!  It took a while for me to decide on how I wanted him to look, since I wanted to do a cute version (similar to how I made Jack and Zero).  I tried to incorporate as much detail as I could to keep him looking accurate with the wonky proportions ^^; The trickiest part was getting folds on the different surfaces of his body.  Details are needle felted, including the colorful openings on the sides of his body.

Wishing you all a candy-filled October! :dance:

You're so gooood! I'm completely new to crocheting, but I wanted to try to make the Eevee evolution plushies you posted patterns for - they're adorable! Would you say that they were hard to make? I'm completely new to this, so I'm not sure if I'm biting off more than I can chew. Thanks!

I don't think they're extremely difficult, but I don't have a lot of instructions on assembly included :(  I wouldn't discourage you from trying though, since practice is the best way of learning and improving!
