1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Blue Bear's Bakery on: June 29, 2015 01:12:48 PM

One of my little bears just celebrated the grand opening of his bakery!
Creating this pattern has taught me a lot about being patient and how much of a perfectionist I can be while creating things from scratch.

The hardest bit, surprisingly had to be the strawberry cake, I kept making it too big to fit into the oven! All around super pleased with the way everything turned out  Smiley Cheesy Grin 

Next is a picnic set for a trio of tiny bunnies!
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Tiny Trio on: June 08, 2015 06:44:37 PM

Been making some teeny patterns lately, and cranked out these little bears. I have yet to name them, or even give them a theme (terrible at this stuff!) but they are addicting and very quick to make.

That's what I got so far, next up is making them little costumes, I'm thinking of making them little bakers? WHo knows!  Cheesy
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocodile Stitch Cape on: April 10, 2015 03:03:59 PM
Last Halloween I was determined to have a costume on a strict budget. I ended up being Little Red Riding Hood, and making this gorgeous cape in less than 2 weeks!

The pattern was purchased from https://www.etsy.com/listing/110547012/crochet-pattern-crocodile-stitch-hooded
While I love the cape, I did use a yarn that was heavier (and regrettably cheaper) than what the pattern originally called for. As a result, my cape came out shorter, and not as flowy as the pattern shows. In the future, I would certainly put the time (and money!) to buy some superb yarn to make an even more stunning cape. <3

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Poke'Beans on: April 10, 2015 02:34:54 PM
Some tiny little Poke'Beans I made a little while ago Smiley
I have to say they are inspired by Disney's Tsum Tsum line. They are simple, fun, and fit in your hand perfectly!
I hope to make more. I started with the first gen starters, and Pikachu because who doesn't like the little electric mouse?
Curious to see how I'd handle the more elaborate characters....these four will do for now though. Enjoy!

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Mini Top Hats Pattern on: April 23, 2014 06:04:04 PM

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Built-in Bow (pattern) and other hats on: January 24, 2014 04:46:22 PM

I have a new found love of crochet hats! I'm starting to realize how easy it is to complete an outfit with a cute hat. Plus with this winter being so frigid, I feel I need a warm hat even indoors. The Built-in Bow hat was inspired by pictures I've seen online, and since I couldn't find a pattern for it (well, not an ADULT pattern, most pictures were of little girls wearing this hat...) I decided to whip up a pattern myself.

Materials: 5.00 mm Hook, Yarn needle, optional decorations, and any kind of size 4 yarn
St – Stitch
Dc – Double Crochet
Ch – Chain

Rnd 1: Dc 11 into a Magic Ring
Rnd 2: 2dc into each st (22)
Rnd 3: Dc, 2dc in next st (34)
Rnd 4: Dc 2, 2dc in next st (45)
Rnd 5: Dc 3, 2dc in next st (56)
Rnd 6: Dc 4, 2dc in next st (67)
Rnd 7-11: Dc 67
Rnd 12: Dc 12, Ch 12 (or desired length), Dc until end.
Rnd 13-16: Repeat Rnd 12

Finishing: From the middle stitch, sew together to create the built in bow. If wanted, add some bling-bling~

I've also made a couple of other hats from great free patterns online:

Their patterns can be found at my bloghttp://millieonherworld.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/built-in-bow-hat/

Smiley Enjoy!
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Another one down, Sailor Jupiter! on: January 24, 2014 04:20:18 PM

I have to say, after Sailor Moon my favorite Sailor Scout is Sailor Jupiter! She was the tough one who took no nonsense and (in my opinion) had the best powers!

I used the same pattern for her as I did for Sailor Moon...which means she took a lot of work -_- But I really loved that I had a chance to make her second. Smiley I'm still trying to figure out how to make Tuxedo Mask. Eventually he should pop up here somewhere!

Yup yup. Thanks for checking her out Cheesy
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Disney Chibis: Mickey, Minnie, Pooh, Piglet, Tinkerbell, Periwinkle on: July 07, 2013 08:23:14 AM
Gotten on a fan art kick lately. Decided to make a few chibi Disney characters while trying to stray away from the typical Princesses. Here are the beginning characters:

Mickey & Minnie Mouse

I always liked their old fashioned simplistic look best. Had to use felt eyes because black safety eyes on black yarn made them look eyeless and honestly kind of creepy. Tongue

Pooh Bear & Piglet

My favorite bear who's always hunting for honey. And of course his companion Piglet who's neurotic behavior I always found hilarious as a kid.

Tinkerbell & Periwinkle

Honestly I don't know much about Periwinkle other than she's Tinkerbell's sister. I felt like I had to make her with Tinkerbell, besides their contrasting colors and styles were interestingly difficult to make.

That's all I have for now, trying to brainstorm more characters to do. Smiley If you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them!  Grin
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Champion of Love and Justice: Sailor Moon on: July 01, 2013 09:24:48 AM

Sailor Moon was the first anime me and my best friend fell in love with when we were kids. Last year I made her a 5 inch doll using someone else's pattern. This year I decided to create my own pattern and make the perfect Sailor Moon amigurumi. And I think I nailed it!

Her body was entirely made using a 2.70 mm hook, the smallest I've ever used. She is a little over a foot tall. This was also the first time I made a doll with hips and a bust lol. I REALLY wanted as many details as possible. Sailor Moon took about 4 days of continuous work, and in the end my fingers were super sore, but the look on my friend's face was priceless when she first saw her doll.


I've already started working on Sailor Moon's cute daughter Chibi Moon. Will share once she's done! I'm also making a mini Sailor Jupiter for a Craft Swap. So much Sailor Moon madness, I love it. ;3

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Pattern Preferances on: June 18, 2013 04:42:43 PM
Hi, I've been thinking about selling patterns online. I was wondering if I can sell patterns without pictures, like the only picture is of what the final product would look like. Or do I have to have step by step pics. Would people prefer picture heavy patterns? I'd like to hear your personal preferences please Smiley
