Thank you both!

I've never sold any of my amigurumi in my life, I'm a bit scared of taking commissions to be honest. I do give away my creations, though. And I love to practise. So I don't know what you would want to have made, but I could give it a shot and if you like the end result mail it to you? I just can't guarantee I'll be able to make what you want, haha. Depends on what it is.
That sounds incredible! Wait I'll find a picture of the character I was thinking of, it's pretty much round so I think it might be ok. (feel free to say no :p)

If I don't think I can do it, I'll let you know, haha. I'll check back tomorrow or send me a message and I'll reply to it when I get back online. :)

Edit : Just saw the pic. Yes, I think I can make that. I don't know how long it will take exactly (and I'll be going on holiday for a week next week), but it'll probably be done when I get back, since I'm taking my crochet stuff with me wherever I go.  ;D

A bag I decorated yesterday! Not going to be for sale as it took me sooooo long to do no one would pay as much as I'd have to charge lol

Though, just had a thought about laser cutting... I'll think on that...



It's a quote from Orson Welles :)

Haha, what a great quote and the bag looks amazing!

So you did all those letters by hand? I can imagine that taking a while.

Thanks! I was thinking on it while walking today and I might do it to sell, but machine embroidered :)

I did do them all by hand! Pretty tricky lol

Janine, I love that bag!!  I agree, what a great quote on it.  Did you come up with it or see it somewhere?  It's absolutely brilliant.  Put it on a headband? :D



... So my first freehanded project was a simple one, since a meerca is basically a sphere with a face. :P



... And my last project was this, I'm pleased with the result!




I want a Neopet, Rij... those are just amazing!  A sphere with a face :D... are you selling them? :) :)


... Catbug!




Just love the Catbug... OMG so cute.  I love cute. ;D

Thank you! And I'm not selling the 'prototypes', but I could easilly remake them. :) With the rainbow one, I wrote down what I did, so I have a pattern (which I could also give if you can crochet/have family/friends who can crochet), the purple one I want to redo and write down what I'm doing for easy replication (and pattern sharing) later on.

I wouldn't be selling neopets by the way, I don't think that's allowed by copyright rules, at least that's what they say on the website. But I can give them away. ;D I'd only ask shipping costs or something.

But I do want to make a blog or something to share the neopets patterns on, because as long as I don't ask money for it, I can share them/give them away.

Is it alright to double post if there's been so much time between posts?

Anyway, now I've heard catbug was received by Martha I thought I'd post the pics I made of him.



I've had a request from my sister in law who wants one too. So it's a good thing I'm writing down as I go, now I can replicate it easily. I want to start a blog for my own creations and for designs I can sell, make an etsy shop or something.

Martha should totally post pics of her paper animals, the squid she made for me is awesome!

I can vouch for the fact that catbug is wonderful! Rij is my new favourite person :p unfortunately I don't have any good pictures of my things. Phone camera and bad photography skills see to that.

Thank you Rij!

That is so cute and so well made!

Here's a bridal headdress I'm working on for my friend. It's a wedding with an Iceland/aurora borealis theme. I couldn't add any colour (though might be able to add in a bit of silver later) so I went for twisted feathers to give it a frosty snowflake ish type feel! She wanted draaaaama and I hope I've delivered! Not totally finished, but I need her to try it on with the dress before finishing to make sure the colour is ok!



It's difficult to see, but the spiky twisted feathers are also tucked in between the big feathers.

That's just amazing! I would have worn it to my wedding, I'm sure she'll love it.

I started to archive my yarn. Crochet a small granny square (because I have loads of multi coloured yarn too), stick it on a piece of paper and the paper that goes around the yarn on the other side so I have brand, colour code, what it's made of, needle size and how hot to wash. I've done about 5 and mannn, this is going to take a while. x_x I don't even have wrappers for every ball of yarn I have right now, but even with the ones I do have, I think I'll have to do 50. :P Oh well, once I have done everything I have now, it should be easy to keep up with when I buy new yarn.

I'm doing this because I ran out of yarn for the blue of the catbug and a friend wants one also, but I don't remember which brand and colour code it is. This way I'll have everyhting in one place.

Ages ago when rij made me my amazing catbug I said I'd post pictures of him with my bjd. I finally brought my doll back to uni today so I hope rij sees this! Sorry for my lack of photography skills. I will get better ones at some point.





The best part is that they're perfectly sized for each other :D

Yay! Thank you so much for posting these. ;D Is that a doll chateau mold? Maybe I'm completely wrong, haha, but now I'm curious. :)

Yes she's a doll chateau Bella mould. I love her. She's unfortunately my only doll at the moment as I had to sell my others to make rent a couple of times :(

I'll never sell this one though, I'm far too attached.

I can imagine! I love how their bodies look, very artsy. I'd hate it if I had to sell one/some of my dolls to pay bills. I would if I had to, it's better to pay the bills, than have some dolls, but have a debt/have to move out. I sold the doll I couldn't bond with (soom faery Asis), but my other dolls are precious to me.

I just noticed my post before the last one about organising my yarn. The crochet a granny thing quickly went out the window in favour of a more efficient way I found. Had to purchase a laminator, but it was worth it. I downloaded a template file, printed them out and laminated them with the yarn wrapper at the top. Punched out some holes (my heart punch was too big, so I switched between heart and regular round shaped holes) and went from there. It looks pretty good!



This was, I think, only stylecraft yarn, I've done couple more brand by now. It's a shame I have heaps and heaps of phil cotton 3, catania and katia yarn without wrappers, but in every colour. Oh well.

I'm also designing another neopet, currently only have the head. It's a Blumaroo.

I was always drawn to the DC bodies because they look like the angry thin elongated people that I draw.

I love the soom dolls though! There are quite a few I've lusted after over the years. I can't wait until I finish uni and have enouh money for new dolls again. There are a few that have been on my wishlist for far too long.

Also I love your yarn organisation it's so cute! And, as always, your croched things are too lovely. Everyone is always really impressed with how good my catbug is :)

a few Adventure Time plushes I've made recently. :) I've been experimenting with different materials, so PB is crochet with yarn hair, Jake is entirely felt, BMO is flannel and felt, and LSP and Finn are crochet again. :)

Oh wow, all these photos are spectacular! :D I make cards and jewellery myself. If I'm understanding the rules correctly, I'm OK to post my facebook and etsy pages (if I'm not, sorry!)

I love making things, but since leaving uni I have only made my sisters prom dress, and I feel bad towards my sewing machine as it needs a bit of a work out!
I was wondering if any of you guys like to get crafty? If you do post examples! I also love looking at free patterns etc online, if you have any good ones post them on here :D

sooo I'll start off, I like this site http://www.cutoutandkeep.net as there's looads of different tutorials for things, from cupcakes to cold remedies! love it!


I do like to get crafty! I like to design playing cards, like game cards for friends that invent games and such.  I have to recommend The GameCrafter to people into making games, even if you are crafty enough to make your own game pieces, too.

I made a thing! :)

My tiniest crochet thing so far. It's done with a 0,9 mm hook. I have this tiny BJD that's only 17 cms, but mature art body. Impossible to find clothing for, so I have to make them myself. This is a circular vest I made tonight. I'm contemplating making it bigger, maybe only at the bottom. What do you peeps think?

Doll has no eyes or wig since I'm still painting her face and her wig is still in the making. :)
