Hey hi hello everyone! I think I mentioned it before on my Peach Amigurumi Tutorial - but I am so excited for spring. The weather lately has been tricking me into thinking it's later in the year than it actually is! So when the weather is warm, my mind turns to planning the vegetable garden,… Continue reading Potted Carrot “Peeker” Crochet Tutorial
If you've been following my blog for awhile now, you may remember these handsome little fellows I made a while back: Every so often, I go back and revisit old patterns of mine and see what I can do to improve on their design. I still absolutely adore this alpaca pattern (click here to view… Continue reading Chunky Alpaca Plush Tutorial
Has anyone noticed how popular mushrooms seem lately? I feel like I see them everywhere - not that I'm opposed. I've always been a fan of them, ever since the power-up and one-up mushrooms from Super Mario. They make cute keychains, too! I did want to try to recreate my very own toadstool via crochet,… Continue reading Mushroom Amigurumi Tutorial
Right at the start of the year, I flew to New Orleans to visit my mother, who recently moved there. It was my first visit to her new house, and the second time I've ever been to New Orleans - the first was nearly ten years ago, and I don't remember much of it (as… Continue reading Pietro the Clown Crochet Tutorial

With… Continue reading Peach Amigurumi Pattern

They drop this resource called "plort" and it's the main source of revenue in the game. Anyhow, I've fallen in love with this game because… Continue reading Slime Boy!
Fun fact: I'm actually allergic to bees - but that doesn't mean I don't like them! I understand how important they are, especially for pollination. And I love flowers, fruit, and honey, so bees more than make up for the pain of when I get stung. I was trying to think of things I could… Continue reading Honey Bee Amigurumi – Save the Bees!
So, I'm obsessed with flowers, and have been since I was very young. I was the kid in the neighborhood that rounded up all of the dandelion puffs and blew on them (much to the chagrin of my neighbors), making a wish on each flower as the seeds drifted away in the wind. Needless to… Continue reading Rose and Leaf Applique
