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:)
