Pine Tree Ornament

Hello there! It’s December, the last month of the year. And I know, to all of you who celebrate Christmas,  this is the month that you’ve been waiting for every year. I don’t celebrate Christmas, so this is one of a very long holiday in a year where my family enjoying sit back and relax for almost 2 weeks in a row 😀

I like Christmas ornaments, they all look so festive. And here, I already finished making a free tutorial as a present for you who celebrate Christmas, a Pine Tree Ornament 😀

But basically, it’s a very versatile pattern. It’s not only used as a Christmas ornament but also can be used as non-thematic moments such as a garland, a finishing touch for your present, bookmark, and etc. Just let your imagination be free and think what is it for 🙂  So.. Enjoy the pattern!

Make them as much as you wish 🙂 Pardon me if my embroidery looks so ugly, I’m not really good at them >.< Below I used a daisy stitch, french knots (my most fav), running stitch, and what else the other one? Hmmm.. just say it, it looks like some sparkly-things on a tree 🙂

Tree Baby Rattle Amigurumi Pattern

Yoohoo! I finally finished this tutorial, so relieved 😀

Before I tell you a story behind this tree baby rattle, I want you to know that the pattern is already listed in my shop, here. You won’t be sorry to download it.. it’s cute overload and really photogenic ^_^ V

So, the story is, there are 2 things that inspiring me. First, I inspired by my childhood when I always drew this kind of tree. Even my friend or I think almost kids at my age (in my country or in my town) loved to drew this typical of tree! I didn’t know why older people (read: drawing teachers or parents) taught us to drew that kind of typical tree. Now I can say that was weird and not creative at all. Even for some other images, they taught us to did the same way in the same step and shape, so our creation looked just the same. Well… what can I say now..

Luckily, that memory sticks on my mind and gave me an idea to create this baby toy (and I don’t want to do the same way to nowadays generation, or at least to my kids to draw something that looks so typical ). I have to admit that it’s so hard to implement this typical of tree to amigurumi and create the pattern. But at the end, I did it 🙂 That’s so relieving. I really enjoyed and excited to make this tutorial. And the result was awesome. I had a positive feedback on my Instagram when I uploaded a short video of the sample pattern. It made me feel more excited to finish the pattern as soon as possible.

Second, I always curious about baby’s development. Once when my kids were just born until they reached 2 years old, sometimes I was in my mood swing. I always nervous and curious about baby’s development. I had their diaries so I could make sure that they grew well, or maybe just in case that I missed something out. The important thing that I always think is stimulation for baby is a must. Even we do a simple thing, it is important to baby’s development. Trust me 🙂

So, I can’t ignore the basic things when I designed this baby rattle. Baby needs something playful to stimulate the sensory. This baby rattle is good to stimulate the vision, hearing, and tactile. It is all-in-one toy, with adorable look as a bonus 🙂

And another bonus is, this tree baby rattle is so photogenic! I can’t stop taking their picture in a different angle. Wish I had a baby (oops!) so the baby could be a model and play with this rattle. Does anyone out there have a cute baby to hold and play with this tree baby rattle with me? 😀

Ps: Just in case you seek another baby rattle pattern I designed, you can find it here. It’s one of my best seller pattern 😀

I can’t wait to find another idea to make more baby toy..
