Teddy Bears in the house

Seriously, How adorable are these Teddy Bears???!!! After making the 1st one I had enough yarn over to make the 2nd one! Not bad for 1 ball of Caron Sprinkle Cake! Which is a brand new line of yarn. Love this in Birthday Cake color and it’s self striping so you don’t know what color will be next. So in LOVE with how they came out.  I’ll for sure be adding these to my Etsy shop also! Thanks again to Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me for a GREAT Project!

If you are in the San Clemente area I’ll be adding them there too!  Of course went into work at Michaels last night and picked up some more. I got a new color too! I’ll show you that one a little later! Now to get ready for my Sons Baseball Tournament in San Clemente this weekend! I’m for sure packing my yarn! Let’s see what I get done!  Have a great weekend and until next time…..

Cute Crocheted Chubby Kitty

Hey all!   So I kept seeing this cute little chunky kitty on a Facebook group I’m on and I just had to make one! I just love how it turned out! I couldn’t help but add a bow! I was so excited to make this that I didn’t realize that I grabbed a different color gray so my Kitty is Two-Toned! BUT that’s Ok I still LOVE how it turned out!  Now to get some more color combos! These are pretty addicting to make too!  If you are crocheter and are wanting to make this you can get the free pattern on Ravelry by clicking HERE!   Thanks for stopping by and as always….

Crocheted Dodger Girl

I’m baaackk…..Told you I’d be back sharing my latest creation!

Dodger Girl 1I was inspired to make my Doll by many Doll Makers but I have to say the 1st doll that inspired me was from a gal named Aniqua Wilkerson from “My Kinda Thing” on Facebook then I saw another doll from Dee Dee from “Off D’Hook Creations” also on Facebook they both were such an inspiration to me as I hadn’t done Amigurumi in years and seeing their creations got that creativity flowing and I pulled out a Bunny I had sitting around for awhile which you can see HERE!

Anyway seeing their Beautiful Dolls inspires this one!  I have to say I’m “Extremely Proud” of myself! I’ve been waiting to bring this girl to life for some time now! Before I introduce you I’ve got to say this – Besides the Shoes (The Crochet Crowd) & the Flower in her hair – I made her up as I went along!

More Crocheted Little Mermaids

2nd Mermaid - 1So as promised here is the 2nd Mermaid Doll I made!  I really  like how she turned out too!  She’s absolutely perfect!

These are very addicting to make I do have to admit!

This is paid pattern which you can get HERE – It’s super detailed and has awesome pictures to follow.

A lot of hard work went into this pattern. It takes so much time to make sure written patterns come out right!   Below is a side view picture!

Well I am finally finished with the last project I shared! I mean it’s not like I was busy with my Son’s 11th Birthday over the weekend or anything!

His actual Birthday was yesterday!  I have no idea where the time goes but I just wish sometimes it would slow down!

This is my Mom and him as we got back from the Movies. We saw Max and we really enjoyed it!

Charlie BrownAnyway, I couldn’t give more sneak peeks of my project as you’d of guessed right away! So without further ado – my latest Amigurumi project!

Yep Charlie Brown! I love PEANUTS & the Gang so when I saw this kit I just had to get it! Link is below if you are interested!

The kit comes with all the materials to make 3 projects – Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Woodstock. But the book has all the instructions to make 9 more characters!

LOVE this kit! Plus I also was able to get the Disney Classic Kit and I’ve got the Star Wars one next on my list PLUS a few of the other ones!  Well I’ve got another project that I’ve got to start and I almost did before I finished this one BUT I was good and finished up Charlie Brown first!  Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment or email me directly!

Happy Craftin!

What’s next on my hook…

Good Morning all and Happy Saturday!!

Well Baseball is officially over for my son.  Bitter sweet buy this Mama needed a little break until it all comes around again in August!  So it’s time for Fun in the Sun!  Well not so sunny right now actually a little foggy lookin outside!  But there’s a nice cool breeze.

AmigurumiAnyway, here a quick peek at my latest project.  Yes another doll but not sure you can tell what it’s going to be.  Since my last doll, which still doesn’t have a name, I’m been just a tad bit obsessed with dolls. This one won’t take as along though.

As always, thanks for stopping by and Happy Craftin’,

Doll 3Here she is standing up! She’s coming in at about 13″ tall!  Now what to name her?? HMMM……

My son likes the name Andrea “Lady A” then changed his mind to Makayla.  My daughter and son-in-law like Donna, Sophia, Aubrey then Madison “Maddy” – I’m kinda liking Maddy.
