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 :)
Well, enough of the whale madness, i'll catch up with loads of Narwhals next time. Have a crafty day! Cheers:)

amigurumi octopus

Colorful!

April 14, 2018


Hello friends! Wishing you all a very happy Tamil New year. Today marks the start of Chittirai, the first month of Tamil calendar year. This is one of the auspicious day in South India.
Meanwhile. i had the opportunity to make these colorful octopus babies for an order. Really liked how the project worked up so quickly:) 




These octo babies are made using Berrysprite's  Amigurumi Takochu pattern with some slight modifications.
I have worked 8 Popcorn stitch in circle for the tentacles.

For bow:

In magic ring,  ch2, dc, tr,dc, ch 2, sl st and again ch2,dc,tr,dc, ch2, sl st and close the ring.
Group photo. Cheers :)
Seems like i've lost my creative mojo lately. I do find lots of inspirations but it's more of lack of motivation to do on my part. Hope this feeling goes away soon as i really love making amis. Have you ever lost your creative mojo? If so how did you get it back?
May you all be filled with happiness, prosperity and abundant blessings this Tamil new year!! Have a fantastic day :)
