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:

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 5, 2014, 5:06 PM


Hello all my lovely supporters!  It's been a while since my last journal update.  I just wanted to thank everyone for all the comments, faves, and watches during the time I've been here.  I know I've been a little (or a lot) slow at responding to messages and comments, but I do read everything and it always brightens up my day!  I have also looked at all the creations I have been tagged in, and I am overwhelmed by how many people tried out and successfully executed the patterns I've posted!  I am so proud of all the great work I'm seeing, and I can't express how much I appreciate that you've shared them with me :)

And because it is the season of giving, I am considering hosting a giveaway or perhaps to make it more interesting, a contest for my watchers as a thank you for the support!  I've never done anything like this before sooooo... suggestions are welcome!  Let me know what you think! :la:

And happy Friday in my part of the world! :dummy:

I really appreciate you for posting the patterns of your toys. I found your deviant page on Pinterest and am happy to say that you got me back into crocheting. I can't wait for payday to buy the supplies I need to start creating one of your masterpieces. Thank you for the inspirations ^_^
