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!

Momo by aphid777
Momo
I finally finished something, yayyy!!  Here is Momo from the Avatar series.  I'm entering him into :iconcrartisancrafts: current contest: Pet Crafts.  More info can be found here: September's Artisan Crafts Monthly Challenge.  He is literally a pet, but I suppose he also showcases my "pet" craft :)

Momo is fully wired and pretty poseable.  His wings are made of fabric because I learned how to use a sewing machine recently :dummy:  I didn't want to crochet the wings because it tends to look a little sloppy and I wanted thin, paper-y wings.  I stitched the edges to prevent fraying (we'll see how that turns out in the long-run).  As for the stripes in his ears, eyes, and brown markings, all of that is needle felted.  I suppose this turned out to be quite the mixed-media project :shrug:

Anyway, enjoy! :)

Teaser #2
Most of you guys already guessed who it was and as you can see, he is dying to be put together :XD:  I apologize again for not getting back to notes/comments/questions for a while.  I've been swamped with clinic work and exams.

I did manage to learn how to use a sewing machine though!  Looking forward to trying my hand at making sewn plushies soon :dummy:  So far, I've made several pairs of pajama pants and shorts and one skirt.  I have yet to find a plush pattern to try out, so if anyone has any good suggestions for a beginner, let me know!

Happy weekend everyone! :)

Hotdog by aphid777
Hotdog
I've been working on this for a while.. :faint: I'm not super happy with how the hotdog bun part came out.. might go back and re-do it later (leg holes are hard! >_<) but I did try to get the dachshund to look as accurate/realistic as I could.  I even managed to startle a couple of my cats with it :XD:

WIP: fav.me/d7pzyxj

This will be gifted to one of my aunts, who is crazy about dogs, and is my entry to :iconcrartisancrafts:'s current contest: animals!

On an un-related note.. I passed my boards! :dummy:

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 know if you do these kind of things, but I got tagged for this one, and I thought of you.~))

I sent an angel to watch over you last night, but it came back. I asked, "Why?" The angel said, "Angels don't watch over angels." Twenty one angels are IN your world. Ten of them are sleeping, ten are playing, one is reading this message. Send this to ten friends including me. I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies someone you love will quietly surprise you. Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send this to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard Reply
