11  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / remy from ratatouille!* NOW WITH FREE PATTERN!!!* on: December 16, 2007 12:41:53 AM
Hi all,

In the process of wooing said boy, i've made his favorite cartoon character.. Please let me know what you guys think! I am especially fond of the chef's hat!

As usual, pls let me know what you guys think!

The pattern! EDIT : Ten years later, I realise that I didn't put in the hook size. Knitting cotton and 1.5mm steel crochet hook. Sorry about that!

THE HAT :done in rounds

1. Make magic circle, 6 sc and pull to tighten.
2. 2 sc in each sc - 12 sc total
3. the poofy part is made by a puff stitch.. so 1 puff stitch in each stitch, 12 puff stitches total.
4. the body of the hat is done by 1 hdc in each puff stitch - 12 hdc total
5. repeat step 4. bind off. done!

If anyone needs clarification on what a puff stitch is, pls pm me and i'll explain in detail

THE BODY!:done in rounds as well

1. magic circle, 6 sc in circle pull to tighten
2. 2 hdc in each sc, 12 hdc total
3. 2 hdc in every alternate hdc, 18 hdc total
4. 2 hdc in every 3rd hdc, 24 hdc total
5. 1 hdc in each hdc, 24 hdc total
repeat step 5 twice more
round 8 : *1 hdc in the next 3 hdc, skip one stitch, repeat from * till end, 18 hdc total
9. 1 hdc in each hdc, 18 hdc total
repeat step 9 twice more
12. *2hdc in next 2 hdc, skip 1 stitch, repeat from *12 hdc total
13. 1 hdc in each hdc , 12 hdc total , fill with polyfill and shape accordingly
bind off leaving a 6 inch tail of thread.. for sewing to the head later!

THE ARMS :you can either make them separately and sow them on, or attach them to the body in the beginning itself. you just need to make a tube of 6 hdc, 5 rows long, a cylindrical tube. so basically you start off with step 1 of making the body and keep adding rows of hdc's till you get a cylindrical tube of 5 rows. on the end of each row,
for fingers you attach the pink colored thread and
make 3 ch and sl stitch into each one (thumb) and then make 5 ch and slip stitch into each one, make this twice (the two middle fingers) and then 3 ch again and slip stitch into each one and attach to the tube and bind off.
it's simpler than it sounds trust me.. just a little fiddly

THE FEET: follow the same steps as for the fingers and attach to the bottom of the body leaving a gap of two stitches between the feet..you want them close together really

THE TAIL: make 20 ch, slip stitch in the first 5, sc in the next five, hdc in the next 5 ch and dc in the last 5 ch. bind off leaving a tail of thread so you can sow it to the body.. it attaches on the thicker bit.


1.magic circle with the pink thread, 6 sc in the circle, pull to tighten. (nose)
2.switch to blue thread, 1 hdc in each sc, 6 hdc total
3.2 hdc in each hdc, 12 hdc total
4. 1 hdc in each, 12 hdc total
5. 2 hdc in ever alternate hdc, 18 hdc total
6. 1 hdc in each hdc, 18 total
7. repeat step 6
8. repeat step 6.
9. * 1 hdc in next 2 hdc, skip 1 hdc, repeat from * 12 hdc total at which point you should fill with polyfill
10. *1 hdc in next hdc, skip 1 hdc repeat from * 6 hdc total, after which you slip stitch into the opposite stitch to close up the teeny hole just made Smiley

THE EARS! : NOT done in rounds

1. 2 ch.
2. 2 sc in each ch, 4 sc total
3. 1 sc in each sc, 4 sc total
4. slip stitch down the side of the work done, bind off leaving a 3 inch tail for sowing to the head
stitch them onto the 6th row of the head, spaced about three to four stitches apart.

embroider the eyes or just stick googly eyes on em, knot on the whiskers with  white thread, which i stiffened with white glue..

Done? done! whew.. i do not like writing down patterns! if anyone makes these, please let me see them! if anyone needs help, please pm me!

have fun!

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / spun silver with pearls and glass bead jewelry- earrings and necklace! on: December 02, 2007 10:57:55 AM
wedding present for a very close friend.. Luckily in india, you can buy pure silver in ingots and have it drawn out really fine for crocheting.. ooo my poor fingers.. the pearls are freshwater rice pearls and go so beautifully with silver. I just bought a bunch of semi precious stones, so look out for more jewelry Smiley) . As always, please let me know what you think. I'm afraid i've been very bad about posting patterns for the last few things i've done, and i've no pattern for this one.. just trial and error. So, onto the pics!

I JUST finished this beautiful blue bikini and it's been 3 days of hard work!

A friend commissioned this set and i'm very very proud of it. As always, please let me know what you think!

I have modified and adapted the pattern from adriafil.com considerably, the bottom is actually modelled on the customer's fave bikini bottom. thank you so much, i really appreciate your comments.

anyone having questions about it can message me, it's just been a hectic week and i havent been online for eons!

*crafty mama, i'm glad you are a small top and a medium bottom... Huh??
16  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pocket Bibis - tiny amigurumi dolls *Now WITH TUTE!!!* on: June 28, 2007 08:25:21 PM
My version of the Polly Pocket dolls i guess.. just wanted a doll that could be easily carried around. I was thinking of doing like a flower shaped bag to carry them in and could also double as a bed? rug? any suggestions?

the dolls are about 1.5 inches high.. their clothes are a pain to pattern and make.

alright my lovely ladies and gents.. if you want a pattern, i will post one.. EVEN the hoodie! look for the variation on wallets and pocket bibis pattern on sunday, i'll put them up then! As always, thank you thank you THANK you for looking!

Alright my ladies(and gents). sorry it took so long but broken foot ended up with a chest infection and its been one long week stirring pots of chicken soup.

AND NOW (drum roll) FOR ZE PATTERN!!! (wild applause)

1.Thread - no.10 i think, it's called knitting cotton here. you will need the colors beige, black, pink, red, and yellow.

Round 3 - 2 sc into every third sc. (24 sc)
Round 4 - 2 sc into every fourth sc (30 sc)

making up the doll. sew the head onto the body, sew the hands and legs onto the body as well.

Hoodie- Its basically two rectangles.
make a foundation ch the width of the body and work one row of sc into it. the second row, at the points where the hands are attached, substitute 3 ch for the 3 sc.
continue to make the rectangle, fitting it onto the doll at intervals. when the rectangle reaches the other hand, make the same 3 ch instead of 3sc to fit over the other hand and then work one more row of sc and fasten off.

Make another smaller rectangle and fold in half and sew one side.. this makes the top of the 'hood'. Attach the other end to the previously made rectangle and you got your hoodie! Simple isnt it??!!
OH i almost forgot. French knots for ze eyes, french knot for the nose (with pink) and a running stitch for the mouth. hehe..sorry.

Good. i'm off to bed now.. just message me with any questions, queries , criticisms about my pathetic pattern writing skills..yada yada yada..

19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / flower encrusted bag *WITH TUTE* on: May 31, 2007 09:22:49 AM
I made this for a friend's birthday, havent given it to her yet and her birthday was last week.. you think she'll forgive me for the late present? As always, your thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated!

the inside of the bag.. two compartments, one for her cellphone and the other one for cash and whatnots..

tute's available if you guys want.. all you have to do is ask!

alright, i'm SO flattered someone's asked for a tute! Here it is :


1. Make a foundation ch corresponding to the width of the bag you want.. warning! dont get make it too big because the number of the rows make up the length of the bag and it's a lot of work

2. working in the back loop only of the ch, 1 sc in each ch till the end

3. 1 ch, turn, 1 sc in each sc till the end . repeat till you have a rectangulare piece of crochet twice the length required. This will make up the body of the bag

4. To make the flap, continue to crochet rows till the flap covers 1/3rd of the lenght of the bag, in the last row make a 4 ch sp in the middle of the row (button hole Tongue). You can either finish here or make another row , over the row with the 4ch sp to make it prettier .

5. Stitch up the sides of the bag. To make the strap for the bag, i did a long ch with a row of dc and stitched it to the sides of the bag.


Requires pink, blue, purple and yellow thread

1. with the yellow thread make a magic/adjustable ring. 1 ch, 11 sc i6nto the ring.. Tighten the ring.

2 Attach the pink/blue/purple thread, (depending on what the color of the petals you want).. working in the FRONT LOOP ONLY, 6 ch and sl st into the next sc. continue till the end.. you should have 12 6ch loops. sl st into the first st.

3. Sl st into the BACK LOOP and working in the BACK LOOP ONLY, make 8 ch and sl st into back loop of the sc (this is a little fiddly). continue till the end, you should have 12 8ch loops... sl st into first st and end.

your flower should be done!

for the green stalks, you need to have some knowledge of basic embroidery, it's really your basic embroidery chain stitch

stitch or glue the flowers onto the front of the bag and with green embroidery floss, embroider a line of chain stitches from the flower to the edge of the bag. IF  you dont know how to embroider, just make a foundation ch and glue/stitch it onto the bag

sew a button onto the bag corresponding to the buttonhole (4 ch sp made) and voila! you're done!

If you need to make a compartment, just crochet up a rectangular piece that's slightly smaller than the length and the width of the bag and attach inside the bag prior to stitching up the sides of the bag..

Hope this is clear, if you need help, please dont hesitate to ask... If anyone makes these please please post pics!!!

20  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / fretful bunnie *inspired by the lavender bunny* on: May 31, 2007 08:58:03 AM
hey all, so i thought rheatheylia's lavender bunny was absolutely inspiring, and so while in college, i had some pink thread and ended up making this! Although rhea's is MUCH cuter, i thought my fretful bunny is rather pouty but still cute..

please let me know what you all think.. and thanks for the inspiration rhea! i hope you dont mind me using your idea..
