I'm so happy.... it's finally here.. my first free amigurumi pattern!!!!! and if that weren't enough... you get TWO free patterns!!!! =D
a while back Margarita from Red Ted Art asked me if we could double post some crochet pattern... and here it is!!!
the pattern is actually split into 3 independent pieces:
you can get the bunnies pattern here, the teddy bear pattern over at Red Ted Art and the toy chest pattern over at my etsy shop!!!! =D
Ain't it cool??? =D
So I came up with the idea a while back when I bought a Blythe doll... since crochet is my thing, I decided I had to try and make crochet furniture for her! and so here is one of my first creations... the toy chest =) its size is great for playscale dolls furniture, such as Barbie or Blythe, but it is also the perfect size to stand alone on your desk or table keeping your small things organized =D
And since a toy chest is not a toy chest without toys, I came up with the teddy bear and the bunnies!!! they all fit perfectly inside the chest, and look great next to it too!
Both the bunnies and the teddy bear are begginer crocheters level, so go ahead and try these patterns out!!!! The bunnies you will find here are very simple and fast to make, the teddy bear may be a little more complicated or long to make but I have provided nice diagrams to help you understand each and every stitch!!! =)
So I'll shut up now and just let you on with...
The sugar puff bunnies
Each bunny is made of 3 pieces: the body and the two ears. I will describe the white bunny, for the pink bunny simply exchange white for pink and pink for white =)
1 – Make a ring with 4 stitches
2 – sc 1, increase 1 (repeat 2 times)
3 – sc 2, increase 1 (repeat 2 times)
4 – sc 1, increase 1, sc 2 (repeat 2 times)
5 – sc 4, increase 1 (repeat 2 times)
6 – sc 1 on each stitch (12 stitches)
7 – sc 1, increase 1, sc 4 (repeat 2 times)
8 and 9 – sc 1 on each stitch (14 stitches)
* if you are using safety eyes, place them now =) *
10 – sc 1, decrease 1, sc 4 (repeat 2 times)
11 – sc 1 decrease 1 (repeat 4 times)
12 – decrease 1 (repeat 4 times)
Bind off and weave in end.
Take some black thread and embroider nose in a Y shape.
The ears consist of two parts sewn together.
1 – ch 5
2 – ch 1, turn, decrease 1, sc 3
3 – ch 1, turn, sc 2, decrease 1
4 – ch 1, turn, decrease 1, sc 1
Bind off leaving long tail for sewing.
1 – ch 3
2 – ch 1, turn, sc 3
Bind off leacing short tail.
Use the white tail to sew the pink part in front of the white. Then sew on to the body in the desired position. Weave in ends.
now hop on over to Etsy and Red Ted Art to get the other pieces!!!! =)
long time no post... I am still working on a reeeeeally big new project that I will show you very soon and it practically consumes all my time... but in the meantime, I just noticed I have a little fellow I haven't introduced to you yet!!!
this little one loves to splash around and get all the other eggs wet!
he has a nice tail to swim with!
aaaand a group pic of all the animal finger puppets!
so I was involved in a tiny accident on friday... and ended up injured on one leg (burnt) but luckily I'm fine and will be back posting like crazy tomorrow as always!!! =)
thanks for always keeping up with my blog... you're all awsome <3
and I'm back with another non-crocheted project! =)
I made this last week for someone who just got a new digital camera =D I used a nice patchwork fabric I found a few days ago in a cute store and some IKEA fabric for the inside (just plain yellowish orange)
this was really easy-peasy to make... I just took two rectangular pieces of each fabric, one longer than the other, sewed the same sized pieces together, added some plastic stiffener in the back before turning around the pieces, sewed them together and added a fastener. VOILÀ!!!!
anyone notice anything different???? (if you actually come to my blog to read posts, that is)
I added the upper bar to navigate to important pages in my blog! =D
I made a list of amieggs so you can go check all of them and find the specific post easily (I'll keep updating... I've actually got 5 more to add very very soon!!!!) and a linking party list, since lately I link up to so many places the webpage buttons take up more space than my actual post... so go check it out to see where I link up and maybe grab some interesting links!!!! all of them have incredibly nice crafts!! =D
so... back to crochet talk!!!!
I made this yesterday:
this is actually the first time I work with cotton... it is so different from acrylic yarn!! but I think the outcome was pretty nice =D this was created as I crocheted with no pattern at all... I intend it to be my new Blythe's teddy bear =D aaaand I have the nice habit of writing every pattern I come up with down while I crochet... so I will be sharing it with you guys very very soon =) (as soon as I have time to type it properly =P)
some more pics:
you can check out the linking parties I always join here and the blogs that have featured me on the side bar!!
