Sleeping Eevee and Pikachu

Everyone is going on about the upcoming Pokemon games, Let's Go! Eevee & Pikachu! But did anyone ask Eevee and Pikachu if they wanted to go?

Delicious Bradley the Button Collecting Mushroom

You've probably noticed a certain aesthetic in my creations; that I have a preference towards certain looking creatures. Plant looking creatures are my favorite. So when I saw Adam Ellis' character Delicious Bradley (whose birthday is "often") I knew I had to make him.

Isn't he darling? I remade him about 7 times. I hate to say it, but WOW he looked inappropriate a few times when I was crocheting him. I couldn't get the right shape. I finally got the poofy cap I was hoping for which made everything look better.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Jack Frost from Persona

I loved playing Persona 5. I snagged it for $30 unused right after Christmas, and once I got past the first palace I was hooked. Everything was just so... stylish?? And cool?? I named my protagonist Rachiru (that's an old joke...) and lived the high school life I missed out on. Hanging out with friends, cool part time jobs, stealing evil hearts... I really wasted my high school years!

Glanter from Ooblets

I know it's July! But this cutie needed to be made so Bristlebud wouldn't have to brave the mail carrier service alone.

Glanter is another creature from Glumberland's upcoming game, Ooblets. Isn't he cool looking??

Bristlebud from Ooblets Pattern

Have you heard about Ooblets? Per their website, "Ooblets is an upcoming farming, creature collection, and town life indie game inspired by Pok√©mon, Harvest Moon, and Animal Crossing. Manage your farm, grow and train your ooblets, explore strange lands, and battle wild ooblets and other ooblet trainers." Creature collection?? I'm in! And as you know I'm in love with cacti (fortunate since I live in the desert). So when I saw Bristlebud, I fell in love and had to make one. If you feel the same, here is a pattern to make your own. This one is not as easy as my other patterns, so take it slow and feel free to comment here or on Facebook if you need some help!

Another Day, Another Charmander

By far, the Pokemon I've crocheted the most is  Charmander. I made a Bulbasaur for my nephew a while back when he was first born. Well, I didn't know how to crochet when his older brother was initially born, so 5 years later, he gets a Charmander to match with his brother's Pokemon.

I used that Blue Phone Studios T-Rex pattern again, but altered the head to make it more Charmander like, as well as omit the stripes and add on the yellow tummy.

He has a jingle bell sealed inside a capsule placed inside his tummy so he jingles when you shake him, just like the Bulbasaur I made. I love that he stands up on his own (amigurumi with tails are great for this).

I hope you are all well!

Happy Mer-May!

Hello everyone!
I am having fun designing some new amigurumi mermaids. I wanted more of a curled up pose for the mermaid, rather than just sitting up or lying flat.

I had fun making her hair out of brushed out yarn fibers that I ran a low temp iron over to make shiny.

I've been doing a lot of pastel colored items lately so it was great to just over saturate and use colors that pop.

Expect to see more mermaids, I still have more color combos I want to do!
(If interested in commissioning a custom mermaid, feel free to contact me! Pricing starts ~$45)

Have a great May!
