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).

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 things make your room more alive. Could you feel the difference?

Now the pattern is ready on my Etsy shop.

Hope you enjoy it!

 

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!

my own sakura

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 🙂
