Remake: Peas in a Pod Amigurumi

The last time I made these cute guys, they did not look very good. :( So, I decided to remake them and try my best to make them as cute as possible. ;)

First, I used green yarn and my 2.00mm crochet hook( last time, I used my 5mm crochet hook):
I started off by making the pod.

Pod done! ^

Next, I made the peas.
Then, I stuffed them into my pea pod.
Lastly, I gave them mouths.
They are done!! I put the peas on top of my pea pod plushie from Toy Story 3. :)

That's it for today!
Happy crocheting and crafting!

3 Years?! Whaaaaa??

(picture made on PicCollage)
Today's my blogiversary! It has been THREE years since I started this blog. That's crazzzyyyy. The years go by so quickly. I remember starting this blog to document my life, then I converted it into a blog that shares my hobbies. Thank you to everyone who reads my blog and uses my patterns! It means a lot to me. Even though I have been posting little due to the busy life of high school, I still plan to post as much as I can.

Sooo much has happened since I started this blog. A few of the highlights are:

1. Lion Brand( my favourite yarn company) pinned one of my patterns on their Pinterest board (say whaaaa???!) see here

2. My Fox pattern was featured on this blog post and this blog post.

3. My blog is super close to 100,000 views( woooaaahhhh)

4. I made so many friends and memories through this blog. :)
Thank you so much again to everyone for reading my blog! I will try my best to crochet and blog more!

Until next time, Happy crocheting and crafting!

Baby Squirtle!

Almost all of the kids at my church are obsessed with Pokemon. It's the new fad. :) When I was their age, I too was obsessed with Pokemon, and my favourite Pokemon was Squirtle.

I saw on Ravelry that there was this awesome free pattern for Squirtle, so I did not hesitate to start making little Squirtle. :) You can find the pattern here.

Squirtle was so much fun to make!

Fat Corgi

My friend wanted me to make a corgi for her sister. She wanted the corgi to be bigger than my original corgi. So, I changed the pattern to my corgi and made this fat and huggable guy!! :)

Have a lovely day!

Chunky Slouchy Shrug/Sweater

I was looking on Ravelry for the first time in two years, and I found a beautiful shrug/sweater made by Lion Brand and Stephanie from All About Ami.

I always wanted to make myself a sweater but never had the patience to make one. Quickly, I glanced at the pattern, and it is really easy and quick to make!

First, I bought 5 balls of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in "Grey Ragg" because grey is one of my favourite colours.

Since I am super short, I did ended up using 4 balls of the grey yarn.
To make the sweater, I used my 10mm crochet hook:

To start making the sweater, I crocheted a long chain ( I chained 65 chains). Then, I single crocheted in the back loops of every stitch.

Doesn't the ribbed texture look beautiful?

After crocheting a long rectangle( the width of the rectangle was the length of my right shoulder to my left shoulder), I folded the entire piece in half. The ribbed texture should be going verticle instead of horizontal
After folding it in half, I sewed the sides only half way and left a hole at the sides. After I unfolded the sweater and added a collar, my sweater looked like this:

I am really happy with how this sweater turned out. This was my first time making a sweater, and it was really easy to make! I am definitely going to wear this sweater all fall and winter. :)

Remake: Tunisian Crochet Headband

I was looking through all of my patterns that I posted on this blog, and I really wanted to remake my Tunisian Crochet Headband which I posted a very long time ago.

Since I lost the original headband that I made, I crocheted a new one.

For my previous headband, I used Red Heart Super Saver Solids in Shocking Pink, but this time, I used Lily Sugar and Cream cotton yarn in Overcast. This yarn is a beautiful shade of grey mixed with taupe.

To start off, I chained 10 with my 5.0mm crochet hook:

Then began to Tunisian crochet across till I was satisfied with the length:

Isn't the Tunisian crochet stitch so pretty? I love the texture! :)

If you do not know how to crochet the Tunisian crochet stitch, here is a great video:
Next, I sewed the ends together to make a loop
Then, I wrapped a long strand of yarn in the center and weaved in the loose ends. 

My headband is done! :) 

Happy crocheting and crafting! :)

Desktop Favourites

Hi! I wanted to show y'all some of my desk essentials/favourites.

This is my desk...It's messy, and I hope to clean it soon. :)

The first item of mine on my desk is the black laptop(it is 7 years old and 5 pounds!). I do all of my homework, online classes, and blogging on this black brick. :P

Next are these adorable sticky notes!
