1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Saitima and Star Butterfly on: February 23, 2016 10:09:09 AM
Yet another doll pattern I've been testing out. Saitima is a gift for a friend and was just for fun, I love her outfit!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet license? on: February 17, 2016 01:51:56 PM
Has anyone gotten their crochet license?
I have worked at a craft store and wanted the crochet teaching position but they told me I needed a license. How do I go about getting one? And I guess before that does anyone actually have one and is it valuable to the position?

Hard to find any information on it really, would love ANY input, especially from your personal experience Smiley
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Studio Ghibli/Disney Inspired on: January 15, 2016 11:05:32 AM
Lately I've rewatched some of my old favorite animated movies. Of those were Howl's Moving Castle, Kiki's Delivery Service, Spirited Away, and Alice in Wonderland. As tributes to how much I LOVE these movies I made them as little chibi characters with their favorite companion Smiley

For Alice I debated over making the Cheshire Cat or the White Rabbit, but I feel that the Rabbit is really what bought her to Wonderland in the first place. Working on Princess Mononoke next, with an idea to do Ponyo too. I'm just not sure who exactly Ponyo's sidekick would be ?_?

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Ariel and Doll Base on: September 21, 2015 02:21:21 PM

My sister wanted me to make her flower girl a gift. Since her favorite character was Ariel, I decided to make her a doll. Smiley
My BIGGEST COMPLAINT as a child was that Ariel dolls were either her as human only or mermaid. So I really wanted this doll to give her the ability to be both. I'm so frustrated that I forgot to make her blue bow for the "Kiss the Girl" blue dress, that's my favorite outfit of hers!

The new thing I did with this doll is that her head can turn left and right, as well as her arms up and down. Also the first time I tried sewing bangs onto the head. I think I sewed them wayyyy too far to the side, but I've been practicing.

After a little tweaking (like attempting to make her head a bit smaller) I've made it a base for some other dolls:

As always, thanks for reading my post  Smiley Wink Cheesy
5  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!
6  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
7  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

8  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!

10  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!
