Reblogging – Felt Eyes (Chibi Dolls)

This lady is super talented. I struggle with the felt type eyes, so I don’t often put any of that in my posts patterns, or tutorials. But hers are SUPER cute! Check out how she does it!

 

My previous post was about a Chibi doll I made that required large manga eyes. It was my first time trying that style, and since I had to figure out how to make them I thought it would be nice to share a tutorial to show you how I did it. It turned out to be very simple! Before […]

September Wrap Up

logo

 

September was a whirlwind! I spent a week with my best friend trying to get ready for the wedding, had the wedding, then spent 4 days at Disney, then spent the rest of the week trying to catch up on the household chores, like laundry and cleaning, then I spent 2 days at a huge music festival! So, shop wise, my focus was definitely elsewhere this month. But, I did get all orders out on time, and I am pretty proud of that. 🙂

 

I had 40 sales for 40 items, so pretty great, but only about 3/4 of what I did last year…

 

 

As far as my goals for September,

 

  • Stuff I need to make
    • Candy corns (this is constant, but I did make a bunch)
    • 2 Amigurumi for wedding (done! you can see them here and here!)

 

  • Stuff I need to finish:
    • Candy corns (constant right now, but I did finish several)

 

  • Stuff I  would like to make some progress on
    • The first doll in the new line (I am not even sure where she is right now)
    • 1 kitty koi corner to corner blanket (sadly, my lowest priority) (one day…)

 

  • Events I will be attending
    • None this month

Long Weekends

Long weekends are the best. I spent yesterday working on new projects, I made a child size skull shawl,


a whale, a heart, and an owl. They are all pretty amazing. I am loving the bernat blanket yarn. It makes huge stuffed animals so fast and SO FLUFFY! Photos to come later.

Today is church and Disneyland.

Tomorrow is housekeeping and orders. 🙂

Then a short work week, followed by two weeks vacation!

So exciting! The wedding is in 13 days!! Ahh!!

Road Tripping 

Things have been a little hectic here. Last minute wedding stuff, work is sort of crazy, and some major life changes may be in the works!

I am a little over the candy corns right now, so I am taking a break to work on a very cool Halloween project that is totally anti-Halloween. 🙂

Daisy is Getting Married!

A while back, I posted about creating a Donald Duck amigurumi for my pending vow renewal. Well, I have finally gotten some time and was able to sit down and create his beautiful bride.

Daisy here, see, she is no ordinary bride, to dress herself in all white. She needs some color, some pizzazz, some oomph. So, she is sporting a glorious dress with a bride red top and a skirt of reds and whites. Isn’t Donald a lucky man?

  • 2 sales for 2 items

August 2015

 

 

Candy corns are still my primary focus this month. My goal is to have 12 preemie, 20 three month, and 12 six month ready by September. So far, I have 12 preemie, 8 three month, and 8 six month costumes done. So, I have some serious work to do. However, I also have a goal to get these wedding gifts done. Plus, I need to bust out 6 elephant pillows before Christmas. It is a going to be a busy, sleepless kind of month. Though, my guest count has gone down, so I probably only need to make 14 more amigurumi.

 

  • Stuff I need to make
    • Candy corns
    • Amigurumi for wedding

 

  • Stuff I need to finish:
    • Candy corns

 

  • Stuff I  would like to make some progress on
