Etsy Shop Update

At the weekend I (finally!) listed some revamped patterns for some of my most popular ami's!

I'm happy to welcome back...

Jacob The Jellyfish
Stuart The Uniloomph

Apple and Cosy

All patterns listed above have had a PDF revamp and new model aim's made for the photos, though the patterns themselves haven't been altered. Just thought I'd mention this incase you already have these patterns and thought I had rewritten them :)

I hope to have some more favourites back soon, and some rewrites too :)

Sunday Night Crocheting

Been working on a new doll - with ears, a defined chin and a straighter back. Took a while, but I have the head and body finished now :)

Granny Squares and Updates

I made this mini cotton Granny Square cushion cover  back in December, thought I'd share :) I enjoyed using cotton, for a change, though I don't know if I will be using it for amigurumi as it isn't stretchy :( It's perfect for Granny Squares though!

Also I am still working on the new amigurumi patterns. I am going to get them all completed, then list the whole lot at the same time rather than list one at a time. I will keep you updated - thank you for your patience!

Have a fun weekend!

Hello, and a Confession...

Wow, 2 years since my last post?! Madness!

I'm so sorry I haven't been around. To tell you the truth I fell out of love with amigurumi for a bit - I'd done so much and basically got sick of it. I shut my shop and decided to focus more on my Blythe doll creations, which I'm happy to say has gone really well! So I'm still crocheting, but mostly hats and jumpers in miniature scale :P

But I'm starting to get back into amigurumi now though - I have had a few requests (and lovely comments!) about my patterns, so I'm in the process of re-vamping and rewriting them.  I have realised how many people appreciate the work I do with amigurumi, and it makes me feel awful for giving up so easily.

I will hopefully have old (and new!) patterns available in my shop by the start of May. I have already rewritten the Kokeshi Doll pattern, Tilly The Turtle and am in the kiddie of Jacob The Jellyfish. I have learnt a lot about crochet - it's methods and construction, over the past 5 years and am trying to incorporate them into my new patterns.

If anyone is reading this - thank you for your continued support and faith in me! I hope what I have to offer in the coming months will be worth it <3 p="">
In the meantime, if you would like to check out what I've been up to in these past 2 years you are welcome to take a look at my Blythe doll Etsy, Eriko's Emporium, and my Blogspot blog

Take care!

Recent Projects

I recently finished quite a few amigurumi and crochet projects, so thought I'd share :)

First up I made this little doll for the craft fair I'll be taking part in in December

I called him Dorian :) When I was making him he looked like a 'he', but now I'm not too sure. So he's called Dorian - he can be a he or a she :)

Keeping the craft fair in mind, I wanted to start thinking about different things I could make. So I came up with this cat toy

It's just a ball with curly bits on the end. Inside there's some jingle bells :)

I got a lovely message on Flickr from the wonderful Christine about how much she liked my crochet stuff, and if I would be willing to make her some Jellyfish. I of course said yes, and in exchange for the Jellyfish I got 4 Domo Qees (They are my new obsession! I must crochet one some time!)

Christine really wanted a rainbow Jellyfish - it was lots of fun to make!

I've also been crocheting tons for Blythe. Me and my good friend OnePinkHippo are planning on opening an Etsy shop together, where we will sell our Blythe related things. Here are some things I've been making...

I've started a few things here and there too, including this amigurumi monster...

... and a bag I can carry my Blythe dolls in when I go to New York in May, which I can't find the picture of :P

Looking at that lot it seems I've been busier than I thought! It's nice to be crocheting again :)
