Well my big sister is expecting another girl!! I already have two niece, and now she (just like my mother and father) is having her third girl :)!! Sooo I made another bunny security blanket :P lol I couldn't resist! I've actually made quite a few things already!! haha Four hats, three headbands, a rattle, security blanket, car tent blanket, three pairs of shoes annnnnd am currently working on ruffled soakers/diaper cover!! So here they are!! Enjoy!
You can find the security blanket pattern that I used at Do It Yourself with Ruta here; http://doityourselfbyruta.wordpress.com/2013/06/06/security-blanket-bunny/
This is my Pirate Bear!! Aarrgg Me Matey! lol... I made a graduation bear from Lion's brand pattern for my sister on her completion of University, and my boyfriend commented on how it would be better if it were a pirate bear :P ahaha so0o0o0o0o, I decided to surprise him with a Pirate Bear for Christmas and he LOVED it!! I made all the clothing, hat, weapon, hook and peg leg all my self! The bear it's self was based on the Lion Brand's pattern, but was changed a bit.
I've finished my very first baby security blankets! I made a bunny for a little girl and a monkey for either a boy or girl. (My monkey blanket isn't quite quite finished because I ran out of brown yarn on the scallop edge *irritating* haha)
I found this pattern at Do It Yourself By Ruta. The monkey was improvised by myself but the bunny is her head and her ears, I just lengthened my ears a bit.
These are absolutely adorable and I will be making more!! Such a great gift for a new born or young one!
You can find her pattern on her site here - http://doityourselfbyruta.wordpress.com/2013/06/06/security-blanket-bunny/
Here is another Blanket I've recently made to make a little trio of security blankets!! SAILOR DUCK!! haah love him!!! <3
This is my Tinkerbell Project! I actually made this for my friend's new baby girl, as a surprise, but I also made another second Tinkerbell for my step-brother's new baby girl as well! This was a great project, the second one went quite a bit quicker, but to be fair, the first one was my first amigurumi project haha so it was just the matter of getting use to crocheting amigurumi style! I did change the size of the doll by using bigger yarn and needles, because I wanted a bigger doll for my friend's little girl to be able to carry with her and cuddle with it at night.
This is the kitty bed I made for the cats and boy am I happy that I did!! The cats LOVE it! They have each taken their turns sleeping in it but it has become the go to spot for the youngest of the bunch, Monster. I would definitely make another bed for upstairs but this time when joining the circular part of the bed I would attach it all around instead of folding it shut and sewing it.
This is the cat I made from the Japanese pattern, I love it so much, I made it for my youngest niece who wants a reminder of her cat Dakota who she lost early this year. They were best friends for about 10 years, and she loves him very much so I was more than happy to make her a mini Dakota that she could have forever!
My niece really wanted a Hello Kitty Amigurumi head but I decided to 1 up it and make her a Hello Kitty inspired doll in a monkey suit!! I love monkeys and so she has grown to love monkeys as well, it's our thing :) I think she is going to love it!!
Monkey Suit with Closed Ears (this is how it was posted on the pattern)
Monkey Suit with Ears Opened (This is how I decided I liked it more!)
Complete Hello Kitty Inspired Monkey Suit Doll!!
I love how this turned out!! It's cute, small, but not tiny, and I absolutely love it! I hope she does as well, it's a Christmas gift, so we'll see!! Fingers Crossed!
