Amigurumi Corgi Pattern

Hi! :)
It has been a very long time since I wrote and posted a free pattern on this blog. Today, I will be showing y'all a step-by-step tutorial and pattern for this adorable amigurumi corgi!

Corgis are my favourite breed of dogs. :) Don't they look so cute?
I really wanted to make an amigurumi version of a corgi, so I grabbed my tan and white yarn along with my Clover 3.75mm crochet hook: 
First, I began to make the head:
Head complete!

Next, I made and sewed on a muzzle for the nose and mouth and a white triangle to go on top of the muzzle:

Next, I crocheted the ears and sewed them onto my corgi's head:
Then, I made the body and sewed it on the head:
Finally, I made the limbs and sewed them all onto the corgi's body:
~~~
Here is the complete pattern:

Amigurumi Light from Death Note

I am a big fan of Death Note. I used to read the manga/comics at the library when I was younger. The plot and characters blew my mind. :)

 The story is about a bored but genius high school student named Light who finds a notebook that can kill anyone by writing their full name in the notebook. Later in the manga, Light becomes a serial killer and sociopath who kills criminals in hope of creating a world with no evil.

My favourite character in the manga and anime is L who is a detective.(image found at google.com)
Since L is my favourite, I wanted to crochet an amigurumi version of him, but his hair was too spikey and complicated for me to crochet, so I decided to crochet Light who had much easier hair to crochet. :) (image found at google.com)
Before making Light, I sketched him out on a piece of paper:
This was my first sketch of both Light and L, but I changed, Light's sinister look to a cuter look instead:

I used tan, white,blue,brown, and red yarn, and my 3.75mm crochet hook to make Light


I started off by making the head:

Then, I attached the eyes

And since I am lazy, I did not want to make Light's head and body separate then sew them together, I crocheted  both the head and body as one big piece.




Next, I made Light's limbs and then sewed them to the body:


Next came the hardest part: the hair. It took me an hour and half to embroider the hair to Light's head, but it was worth it:

With the help of my dad, I made Light's signature red neck tie, and my dad tied it on for me since I do not know how to tie a neck tie. :P

The final step was to make Light's Death Note. First, I cut a rectangle shaped piece of cardboard, then painted it black and wrote "Death Note" on it with white paint:

Then finally, I used a glue gun to glue it to Light's hand: 


Light is complete!! 



I hope you liked this post! :) It has been a very very long time since I posted something on this blog. I hope to post more soon! Maybe I will make L and post him later! :) 

Till next time, Happy Crocheting!

Amigurumi Pear Pattern

Hi!!
Ah, I missed you all sooo much! :) it has been such a long time since I posted something. High school so far has been very tiring and busy for me, but once in a while I promise to create a new amigurumi pattern for you all.

I have seen many Amigurumi pears all over Ravelry, so I decided to create my own! :) 
I started off by using Patons Grace mercerized cotton yarn in "Ginger" which is a beautiful light green, and I used my 2.00 mm Clover Amour crochet hook.

Once I finished crocheting the body and attaching the eyes, my pear looked like this:
To me, it looked like a green raindrop.lol
Once I finished making the body, I made the stem and leaf.
Once I sewed the stem and leaf and embroidered a V shaped mouth to the pear, it looked much more like a pear than a raindrop! :)

If you look closely, you can see that I added some blush to my pear's cheeks.
Since I was too lazy to buy fabric paint, I used stamp ink instead! :) 
First I used a pink ink pad, then I rolled a tiny ball of yarn and rubbed the yarn onto the ink pad, then rubbed the yarn on the cheeks of the pear.
Then, my pear was done!! Here is the pattern:

Materials:
Patons Grace mercerized cotton yarn in "Ginger"
Size 2.00 mm Clover Amour crochet hook
Polyester stuffing
Tiny bit of brown yarn
Tiny bit of dark green yarn

R6:(sc4,2sc into the next st) repeat all around.(36sts)
R7:(sc5,2sc into the next st) repeat all around.(42 sts)

Stuff the piece with polyester stuffing.
R22:(sc1, dec) repeat all around.(12 sts)
R23:(dec) repeat all around.(6sts)
Bind off.

Stem
With brown yarn:
Ch 3
Row 1: sc in the 2nd ch away from hook. So in every st across.(2sts)
Row 2-3: ch1,sc in every st. (2sts)
Bind off.

All Things Must Come To An End

I don't know why, but I thought that the title for this post was dramatically funny. :) But anyways, yeah... I don't know where to start... Uh, so, several years have past by since I began this blog, and guess what? I am going to high school this fall. So, high school means more homework and less time to blog. :) You all probably know by now, that I have very little time( I post about once a month now:P). So, I think with high school coming up this year, that leaves me absolutely no time to blog. I am very sad. :'( Hopefully, I will post once in a while whenever I have a little bit of time. So, I am going to take a long blogging break. Probably won't post  for a long long time. Sorry. :(

Again, I am super sorry that I won't be able to post as much anymore. :( But! I will post as soon as I get more time to! I promise, but I will not post much. Even though I won't post much, I will keep this blog open so that people can still enjoy my patterns. :D

Thank you, everyone, for making this blog fun and a hobby. You all encouraged me a lot, and I had a blast posting and looking at all your sweet creations from my patterns.

Until the next post, happy crafting!

My new hobbie

Long time no post!! :P
As you all know, I decided to pick up a new hobbie. I am making polymer clay charms, and this Sunday I will be selling some of them at my church to raise money to support a team that my church is sending to Chile for a missions trip.

To make the charms, I had to buy paint, baking clay, eye pins, and a chain. So I just molded the clay into the shapes that I wanted, and then I baked them!

Can you guess what some of them are? :)

After baking them at 275 degrees for 15 minutes, my charms were nice and hard. Then I painted them, and tada!! I'm done!! Here is a sneak peek of a charm bracelet that I am either planning on selling, or keeping it for myself. :) do you like them?

Thankful

It has been about 5 weeks, and I am still sick. Many friends know this, and many have been praying for me and encouraging me to trust in the Lord. These past few months have been hard, since I am in pain all the time. Last Sunday, many people came up to me and said they were still praying for me, and some other people gave me encouraging gifts,cards,ect. I am so thankful for those people!! :)







I would like to thank Nathalie Cheng(nathaliecheng.wordpress.com) for the lovely card, Sara Kwun(skwuns.wordpress.com) for the stationery, and Audrey and Toby for the paper flower that I am not allergic to!! 

Thank you to those who have been praying for me! I am so thankful for y'all! :)
