An amigurumi Pokemon – Dragonite

Amigurumi, crochet, Dragonite, pokemon

Another make for my son’s pokemon obsession!

Dragonite – a little bit fiddly to make but got there in the end and he loves it.  He even took it to his Pokemon tournamet as a good luck charm (and came 3rd 🙂 ).

Saw this and just had to make it

Sometimes, when I’ve got nothing to make, telly is rubbish and I’m generally feeling bored I’ll get out the craft mags and have a browse.

It was on one of these said days that I found this cute little card and decided that I really had to make it.

I’ve got no-one to give it to so it’s in my pile of cards just waiting for a birthday to come along :).

A birthday card for the hubster

Me and the hubster often go out for a bit of walking with the dog and it’s a bit of a joke that I’m the one good at reading the instructions and he’s the one good at reading the map – it’s like he has an internal compass in his head, he just has a much better sense of direction than I do.  So for his birthday I spotted this card on my trusty Pinterest and had to make it as it was just so “us”.

An Amigurumi Pokemon – Mewtwo

Amigurumi, crochet, pokemon

Sorry I’ve not been on for a while.

I’m feeling a bit zapped at the moment.  I have pernicious anaemia and my B12 injection is due next week so I’m feeling quite tired and lacking in energy and motivation at the minute.

But on the plus side I’ve got lots of completed projects to share with you over the coming days.

Here’s Mewtwo, made for my Pokemon mad son.

It was quite a tricky make if I’m honest, there was lots of little pieces involved and the pattern wasn’t too great.

But my son loves it so that’s all that matters.

Here’s a link to the pattern:-

Just Adorable

Amigurumi, crochet, handmade

Whilst I was browsing through my craft magazines looking for inspiration, I came across this gorgeous pattern for the adorable Tulip the Flower Fairy.  Can’t believe I missed this first time round.

Tulip also has two sisters – Primrose and Snowdrop – who I am definitely going to make in the future.

She was very easy to make and I was thinking of changing the colour of her dress and making her into a Christmas Fairy or try and make her a little bag or something and changing her into the Tooth Fairy.

An Amigurumi Pokemon – Jigglypuff

Amigurumi, crochet, Jigglypuff, pokemon

My son is a huge pokemon fan and as a results asks me to crochet him pokemon characters from time to time.

Jigglypuff was a pretty easy make as he’s basically just a pink ball.

A nice quick and easy make for a weekend.
