Axolotl Pattern

October 17, 2018


Hello all. I'm very happy to say that i've published my first ever paid amigurumi pattern. It's a digital pattern on how to make your own little axolotl. You can purchase the pattern from my Etsy shop at 10% off. The pattern is suitable for beginners/ intermediate and you can make it in few hours..



Writing a pattern is not as easy as i assumed. It involves lots of trial and errors not to mention taking photos of the process in each step. But i'm very happy that i was able to publish it. I have planned to publish more patterns in the future.


The happiness you get when someone makes a doll with your pattern is priceless! Will see you soon with a new post. Have a fantastic day! Cheers:)

The little things!

August 14, 2018

"It's the little things that makes life beautiful "
Like watching my girl grow a little everyday in front of my eyes, noticing her vocabularies expanding, attempting to dress on her own and surprisingly getting it right more often, her shenanigans getting a little more testing and my yelling gets way louder, there's a lot to learn something new everyday both for her and me.

Now that she goes to play school, i do get to some free time to indulge in crocheting and making amigurumis :) As many know by now, i like making teeny tiny things rather than large ones. This little whale turned out to be one such perfect project for me to try.


Wish i could make them in all pastel colors :)


I also got an order to make them in large quantity recently, so bear with me for overloading you with photos of  the these whales in different angles ;)

I have listed them in my Etsy shop if you like to buy one.
Which color do you like? i also turned some of them into Narwhals. I'm thinking of posting a free pattern for Narwhals. would you like a pattern for that? let me know if you are interested :)
Edit: you can now find the free pattern for this whale here
Well, enough of the whale madness, i'll catch up with loads of Narwhals next time. Have a crafty day! Cheers:)
