More unicorns

Pretty little things… The purple and pink one are pre-orders. The green one is still available for sale.

Hook size 3mm, same type of yarn… But wonder why the purple unicorn is somewhat larger? When I compare the yarn, seems that the purple yarn is “rougher”.. Therefore slightly bulkier. Must be the colour dye or just manufacturing batch. Anyhow, the dolls are all equally pretty. I hope their owners will love them!

Sweet faces close up.

Happy Friday the 13th..

This made my day.

It’s a huge >10kg parcel from my yarn supplier. Been waiting for it to arrive for more than 1 month. Sea shipping because it’s more economical. But overall, since I moved to Miri, I have been paying exorbitant shipping rates. This cost me RM 260 in sea shipping, while previously when shipped to KL, it would only cost me RM 60. So now my cost would increase accordingly as well, not something I too pleased with 😕

But anyways… It came timely, on a Friday which means I can spend my weekend working on these yarns!!!!

Enjoy viewing my stash, fresh out of the box.

‘Roos and Hoot

I made amigurumi recently. But never posted them before… So here goes.

First up is the kangaroos.

I made this on a whimsy 😊 and was so happy that it turned out good. I’m not good at following patterns but I managed this time.

Then a friend of mine ordered a set of ‘roos from me. It was custom made to the colours of his choice.

So now we have a twins! Of course, the younger twin (and baby) had to fly off to KL to their new home…

A while after that, I made an owl from some scrap yarns that I had.

This little owl which I call Hoot has a place in my room. I have to keep her tucked away because my furbabies have a thing for stuffed toys… 🙃🙃🙃

Till death do us part

I have been looking for a Bridge & Groom doll for a long time now. Most pattern I found are small. Finally came accross this pattern, and best of all it is free and comes with a you tube tutorial as well 🙂

Amidst my really busy brain crushing schedule, I managed to (had to) sneak in a couple of hours to make these.

I made some variations to the original pattern, basically I didn’t put any pearls or flower bouquet…. just used plain yellow yarn as the hair ribbon and necklace, no earrings, no bouquet.

Bride measures 23cm tall, Groom measures 26cm tall.

Both are made of milk cotton, 5 ply, 3.5mm hooks.

Here’s linking the pattern author… yarnutopia bride & groom. Thank you for sharing your pattern.

Have a great weekend. Today is my Mom’s birthday, and we are celebrating with Durians!

Animal finger puppets

A friend of mine asked if I can make finger puppets for her grandson.

I am not a fan at crocheting small dolls as this requires sophistication… which I don’t have and I have huge hands… hehehe…

Anyway I challenged myself to make them, no pattern to follow, just free hand making them up as I go along.

This is the outcome… my one of a kind, not sure if I can ever replicate them… animal finger family! 2016-06-23_20.58.12

This challenge has open up a new window to my passion for crocheting. Now I know I enjoy making tiny dolls (it’s not that tough after all !).

So you will be seeing more of me making smaller dolls.

Group hug yo!!!
