Throwback Tuesday



About a year ago, I received a Rilakkuma patch from one of my YG teachers. I love Rilakkuma, and I was happy that I received such a cute patch! :) I will probably put it on my backpack.

Well, that's it for today! So sorry I didn't have much time to make a more exciting post. :( 

Happy Crafting!

Chinese New Year Doll

I already made a Chinese New Year Doll, but I used a 5.5mm crochet hook. This time, I used a 2.00mm crochet hook. For her hair chopsticks, I didn't make the jewels.

I love this picture. :) I placed my doll on top of my favorite plush piggy.

I llloooovvveee how Chinese New Year Doll can stand up by herself. :)

She is really small. Approximately, she is about 5 inches tall.


I didn't make any modifications to the pattern. This doll would make a great gift to any friend. I hope this post helped you know how big Chinese New Year Doll is.

Happy Crocheting!

Striped Bubble Tote Bag


I love tote bags, and I wanted to make a tote bag to hold my yarns. :) I searched on Ravelry and found this pattern. So, I decided to make it! :)  This bag can be very useful. It looks great as a beach bag too! The pattern says to  work in continuous rounds, but I worked in joined rounds. I used the same yarns and hook the pattern called for. For the handles, I chains 50 and did 2 rows of single crochets.

That's it for today!
Happy Crocheting!

Baby Koala

I was looking through one of my crochet books and saw this adorable pair of amigurumi koalas!!

I didn't want to make the Mommy Koala, so I decided to only make the Baby Koala!!:)

First, I started to make the head.

Then, I added the eyes and stuffed it.
Next, I cut an oval shape out of black felt and glued it to the baby's face! :)
Then, I made a cute pair of ears and sewed them onto his head.
After that, I made the body and attached it to the head.

After doing this, I was about to give up on making this little guy, because I don't like to make limbs. However, I REALLY wanted to finish him. So, I made all 4 limbs and attached them to his little body. :)




Then!!!!! He was FINALLY done!!! :D I love this little guy... :P
My baby koala is really small. He is probably about 3 inches tall!
This little koala helps Link guard my desk. He's such a good little helper. :)



I hope you enjoyed this post! Please stay tuned for more patterns, tutorials, and more!

Happy Crocheting!

Link



I saw this Link on All About Ami's blog, and I knew I HAD to make it. :) The pattern can be found here.

Link is pretty small.  

I love how Link can stand by himself. :) 

I know this picture is a little disgusting, but I had to show it to you. Link's head can come off! 

Since Link's head can come off, I can position his head like this. 

Link says bye!! lol

I hope you enjoyed this post. :) Stay tuned for more amigurumi patterns, projects, and more soon!! :)

Late Throwback Tuesday


Who doesn't love friendship bracelets? I love them, but they were very hard for me to make. Someone showed me how to make them recently, and I am addicted to making them!! :) There are 2 ways that I make my bracelets, but I am sure that there are many more ways to make friendship bracelets!! :)

Happy Crafting!

Remodel!

Hey y'all!!

Just to let you know, I did a serious blog make over. :) Please comment what you think about it!! It took me almost an hour to re design it. :P I hope you enjoy the new design!

Nothing about crocheting today... :( So sorry. BUT! I am going to start something new called Throwback Tuesday. It is basically a new name for Project Updates. :P ( I didn't like the name of Project Updates, so I decided to change the name to Throwback Tuesday)  Throwback Tuesday posts are about random things related to crocheting. Hopefully, you will like the posts. :)

Well, that's it for today! So sorry that I haven't been posting that much, but I will try to post more often. (HOPEFULLY!!)

Have a great day!

Tutorial: DIY Painted Crochet Hooks

Hey y'all!
    To tell you the truth, I don't like DIY crafts. I find them a little too hard for me to do. :( I like them, but they are too hard for me. When I saw this tutorial, I knew i had to make it. However, I didn't have any bobby pins that i wanted to paint, so instead, I made up a tutorial how to paint your crochet hooks into a different color! I had 2 of the same hooks, and I was sick of the color. So, I decided to paint it into a color that I liked! It turned out well, so I wanted to share with y'all how to paint your own crochet hooks!! :)

Materials

  • Crochet hook
  • Nail polish ( you can use any color you want)
  • Construction paper
( I used this pretty metallic blue nail polish for my crochet hook
)
 Step 1: Place the crochet hook on the construction paper.
 Step 2: Paint the top half of the crochet hook.
 Step 3: Let it dry.
 Step 4: Turn the crochet hook and paint the rest of the crochet hook.
 Step 5: Let it dry for 1 hour.

Before...
After...

And you're done!! I hoped you enjoyed this blog post. :) Have fun painting your crochet hooks! :P

Happy Crocheting( and Crafting!)!

That's it for today... Sorry it was a short post. :) Please stay tuned for more patterns coming soon!

Granny Potholder Tutorial/ Pattern.

I was on Stephanie Jessica Lau's blog and I saw one of her posts here about some potholders that she made. I loved them and decided to make my own pattern for a potholder. To tell you the truth, I hate to crochet row by row.  As the solution, I decided to make a Granny Potholder! :) This post is a step-by-step blog post.
  First, I made a Granny Square using this video tutorial. ( Note: You NEED to use the video tutorial because this is a different way to make a Granny Square. Instead of binding off in the middle of the square, you bind off at the corner of the square. If you do not understand what I am saying, you will need to watch the video to understand what I am talking about. )

I started out by crocheting the first round.


Then, i crocheted the 2nd and 3rd round


Then, I crocheted the 4th and the 5th round


After single crocheting into the ch 3 to join, I chained 12

 Then I did s sl st into the same ch 3 to form a loop
After that, I chained one and turned the whole piece.
Then, I worked 12 sing crochets into the ch 12 sp.
After that, I binded off and weaved in the loose ends. 


And there you have it!! :) I hope you enjoyed this post. If you make these potholders, please send a picture of them to me at mochiflip@gmail.com. I will feature them on a future blog post. :) Please stay tuned for more patterns and tutorials coming soon.

Till then, Happy Crocheting!
