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 🙂

Panda Boy

Panda Boy is a panda who loves to wear a striped shirt (so do i). He always put a bow tie as the finishing touch to his look. His face is so innocent but has an ignorant smile. He’s so kind, thoughtful, and friendly to others. Take a look at his face…

He loves striped shirt with so many colors combination. Do you want to make him by yourself? What colors will you choose for his shirt? As a trial, I’ve made a striped shirt in white and green (click this). But then I’ve made up my mind to make another one using this color. This one’s my favorite striped shirt, white and ochre.

panda 2

My kids said that his green-white striped shirt is way better than this one. But I love ochre more.. so, this one is my fav!

Now it’s your turn to make one for you. Choose your favorite colors to his striped shirt. Color doesn’t matter to him, as long as it’s striped shirt, he won’t disappoint with it 🙂

The pattern is ready to download both on my Etsy Shop and Ravelry . Hope you have a wonderful day today 🙂

Cloud Amigurumi

Hello again, it’s been awhile since my last post… Looks like I’m drowning in daily routine and forgot to write down my project progress.

Well, in early July, I’ve finished making and writing a new pattern. It’s about a cloud, it’s a very versatile amigurumi cloud pattern. Yeah, I love making a versatile pattern so you won’t stuck only in one idea. Why I said it a versatile pattern? Because only from one pattern you can create more than one creations. Please tell me now, what you’re going to make from this one? 😀

I say it could be a cloud mobile, baby rattle, or brooch. See? I got three ideas from one pattern. So tell me what you’re going to make using this basic pattern? 😀

This pattern I made by request from my friend who wanted this kind of cloud mobile for her pre-teen daughter. I admit it’s so hard to make the cloud-shape in amigurumi, need so many times of trials and errors. Instead of complaining about the difficulty parts, better I show you the result…

I didn’t expect the result really blown my mind… it’s SO cute, maybe too cute! Don’t you think so? 😀

I’ve sent it away and she’s happy with the result 😀 And then I wrote the pattern after that, but only the cloud as a basic pattern, plus “drop” as the bonus pattern. The pattern is ready to download both on my Etsy shop and Ravelry (yes, finally I have a new store on Ravelry).
