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.
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!
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!! :)
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!! :)
Nail polish ( you can use any color you want)
( 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.
And you're done!! I hoped you enjoyed this blog post. :) Have fun painting your crochet hooks! :P
