1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Should I let someone post my pattern that they translated in another language? on: February 17, 2013 08:09:37 PM
Someone had messaged me yesterday about how they had translated one of my patterns into another language and created a PDF of it.  They asked me to put it up on ravelry and my blog. Also asked me for permission to post the translated pattern on their blog & a link back to the original pattern.

I normally don't allow people to copy & paste my patterns onto their blog. I'm wondering what you think about this considering it's another language.
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Octopus~ on: April 03, 2012 09:39:02 AM

This was the first design.

I tried going for something different. Less bulky in the head and tried to go on the 'cute' side.

Both have a flat bottom so it's able to stay up.

Should I make these both or stick to the newer design?

The first octopus was originally priced at $10 but I'm not sure if I should keep as or go lower.

The new one: I'm not sure for the pricing. Same?

this one has a pattern
(has not been tested but definitely feel the design needs improvements!)

I like this one more. The first one was an attempt to make small amigurumi but I think medium/large is for me lol

Oh has anyone made animal amigurumi and brushed it? I really want to make a fluffy one!

I've been trying to design some new things but I love octopus too much to stray.. My earlier amigurumi involved unnecessary bits like sewing. Yay for weaving!

bead eyes and sewing on tentacles


safety eyes and actually weaving in the ends nice n tight lol

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / How to assemble pieces neatly and secure? Tips, what's the secret?! on: April 08, 2011 09:50:49 AM
I'll like to make them more secure and less wonky looking. Is there some sort of trick to attach pieces and make it look nice? Sometimes legs/arms come off or the space between the head and body look really weird. 

I found a picture tutorial forever ago but lost the link.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet through both loops, turning it inside out and looks like backloop sts? on: March 01, 2010 11:52:24 AM
I like to crochet my amigurumi through the backloops for a tight and ridged appearance.

Someone said it looked as if I crocheted through both loops and accidentally turned it inside out  thus- making it look like I did backloop stitches.

I've never heard of this before and I don't remember seeing it in my previous work.
Wondering if someone else had or if it's true.   

Yup, I'm probably going to end up doing teeny swatches but it would be nice to know if it was a well known thing or something. Maybe save the trouble trying to squeeze the hook through one loop?
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Octopus EDIT on: December 30, 2009 02:10:09 PM
More like a "Sixtopus" or as my friend put it "Septapus"
Making 8 tentacles would suck XD



I'm going to make another and I'm looking for suggestions to improve. I like the tentacles .. but the head/face.. not so sure of.

second one:
