living room

I feel so exited... I'm about to introduce you to my biggest project to the moment... I have spent sooooo many hours on this... but it's finally here...


THE AMIGURUMI LIVING ROOM!!!!!

this cutie is my very first pattern!

it all started a few days ago when I was cleaning up my pinky dolls... and had a great idea: let's make pinky-sized (or just doll house sized) furniture!!!!!

I had been wanting to try creating my own patterns for a while... something different than the easy simple bear or egg... so I randomly ended up making a sofa!
when my mom arrived that night she fell in love with it... and pushed me to make the rest of the living room... and here it is!
It has taken me more than a week to put the pattern together... I noted everything down while I was crocheting and took pictures of the difficult parts, but writing it all down properly was tough... and I even made diagrams like the ones in pattern books to make it all easier to understand!!! (that was a long and hard battle with photoshop.... v.v)

but finally here it is!!!! 



1. The sofa
I made it red inspired by sanrio's wanroom.... I just love the brightness in it =D it looks kind of vintage.... and I added a yellow square pillow =)

2. The table

light beige looks good next to the bright red sofa... and the small cactus on top makes a wonderful detail =D (I intended on putting a flower... and discovered it is impossible to make such a small crocheted flower!!!!!)

3. The rug

orange + yellow is love!!!!!

4. The TV

simple but cute =)

5. The TV stand

simple grey box with a drawer =D

and that's it!!!!

it resulted in a 27 page long pdf (lots of diagrams and images!!!!!) you can find on etsy... 





now that the living room is finally done I am starting with the kitchen... wish me luck!!!! =)

  8. Oh these are cute, cute, cute....I just had to get the pattern for a gift for a friend who crochets baby afghans, and since there are no babies coming in the future for a while, but she has 2 granddaughters, I thought she might enjoy this....I don't crochet myself but sure wish I did! Mary L
