Custom Orders

So happy finally I’ve done doing my custom orders within 2 weeks. I’m happy keeping myself busy though sometimes I feel too overwhelmed. It’s really hard to do lot of things at one moment – household things and crocheting at one time. Sometimes it makes me too lazy to cook (but I have to), regularly doing a laundry but too lazy to fold them, and so many things I should do but not yet finished properly 🙈 Plus now, I have a new pet, it’s a stray kitten. My son brought her home without any plans at all, and I was confused because I’m a newbie at taking care of animal especially kitten. But in the other way, she’s really cute yet looked so aweful.. skinny, dirty, and hunger 😩😢 I bathed her and fed her, hope she’s happy to be here now.

Oh I’m sorry, my story is out of the line 😄 where were we? it’s about custom orders, rite? Ok.. Here’s some custom orders that already finished and ready to be delivered to their new homes..

He’s Panda Boy in ochre striped shirt. Plus red bow tie as his finishing look. Cute rite? 🐼 I love stripes, I love ochre (or mustard?), I love white, I love red. All my favorite colors attached on his body!

Glowey in pink! I don’t know why my customers love Glowey in pink rather than other colors. I’m wondering.. how does his look in another color? 🤔 Unfortunately, I deleted his picture for no reason 😑 But you can click here to see his look.

Mobile Cloud Amigurumi. I’ve changed the droplets colors… but hopefully my customer will still love it 😍 she still looks cute, rite?

Tea Time Banner. I designed and made this teacup crochet patchwork because I love tea than any kind of drinks in this world 😄 Then I attached the appliqué on a piece of fabric and create a banner. FYI, I’ve got this one hanging on my wall 😃 And I added hand embroidery letters on the top of the appliqué as a statement words. I love making this piece. I crocheted, embroidered the words, and sewn the fabric at once. All in one piece of banner 💛

I do what I love, I love what I do 😊💛

Scallops Bunting

If you’re looking for something cute to decorate your favorite room or a warm welcome party at home, maybe this one could be the answer. Scallops bunting could be the first aid to decorate the place where you want it to be merrier than usual days. You only need a crochet hook and some colorful yarns to make it happen.

as a wall decor at my tiny home

I inspired by fabric scallops bunting I used to see on Pinterest or Instagram. I always think if any of thing could be crocheted, why not? Maybe it needs a little bit effort, but it’s worth to try..

closer look

It consists of large and small scallops. You can make in one size or both size. In this tutorial, I made 3 large scallops and 4 small scallops which alternately arranged and hold together with a crocheted string.

Little Miss Sakura

Spring and autumn are my most favorite seasons. They have a different story to tell. But first, let’s talk about spring because spring is around the corner! What do I think about spring? I LOVE it! Flowers are everywhere, the weather is getting warmer, butterflies are free, busy bees (ooh, I’m scared of it!), and especially cherry blossom. Yes, cherry blossom AKA sakura, she’s the prettiest one. She always amazes me, hypnotized me…

Kawazu Zakura, the earliest sakura that bloom between the last winter and early spring. can’t take my eyes off you

And this Little Miss Sakura, another creation created inspired by sakura.  She really enjoys the beginning of spring, fresh air gently waves her slowly…. oh so nice…

Sakura Dreamcatcher

Sakura… I always love sakura even now i currently live in a tropical country. My first experience with sakura was about 3 years ago, when I accidentally had to move to Tokyo-Japan, to followed my husband for about more than 2 years. I could say that that was really beyond my expectations, I was so lucky then. Sakura was SO beautiful, they’re SO awesome!

white sakura is a regular sakura that usually bloom in the mid of April. They looked fluffy just like some clouds from far away..

A few weeks ago I challenged myself to made a sakura crochet. So I opened my old photos to observed sakura to get more details. Sakura has 5 petals, usually comes in white, pale pink, or pale purple. And it has a smooth V-curved at the top on each petal. And that thing was really hard to achieve with crochet technique, but it seemed I did it after trial and error a view times!

And then my friend asked me (read : begged me) to have all sakura crochet that I’ve made after she’s stalking on my Instagram. I know she really loves flowers, no wonder she asked me right away 🙂

After a week passes by, here it is.. a sakura dreamcatcher especially for her 🙂
