A crafting update

Hello, everyone.. This week I’ve sign up for my TESOL course and been busy with my teaching job.ย  ย ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been very busy with my commission projects. If you have been following me on social media, you have seen my latest bullet bill post. I’m so happy with the way the project came out. I always hand sew the eyes.ย  See the image below.

 

Today, I’ve been working on my latest commission project. The project is based on the art work of artby_brierrose. It is called Grumpy Donny. He’s still a work in progress, but I’m getting excited because its the first time I’ve created something from an image and I’m using bulky yarn, plus creating most of the pattern myself. So far from my perspective, I love bulky yarn, although it was hard to start the magic ring. It is so soft and pretty. I’m using Bernat Baby Blanket for the project and I’m hoping to be able to learn how to embroider the face. ๐Ÿ™‚ So cool! I’ll share the complete project later.

Twitch Creative Update:

I have been trying to stream on twitch, however, time and distractions got in the way and I have not been able to stream at this time, but I’m hoping that I can work on a schedule that will work for me and share all my new projects or items with you all. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also hoping that Youtube will archive the streams, but I’m not sure how to get Twitch to archive yet. I’d like to work on a layout, which I could stream as well, but it all takes so much time for me.

I look forward to seeing you all again next week. If you are interested, please follow me on instagram above, twitter, twitch.tv/lovebird1221,ย and on here for more updates. Please follow this blog, as I’d love to see more followers. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll see you again all soon. Happy crafting!!!

Working on my own pattern

Hi, folks.. I finished the Legend of Zelda bag for my best friend and gamer, x45x. He hasn’t come over to get his presents yet. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ He’s been spending about 8 hours a day streaming all his favorite games. (Find him on Twitch after 4pm everyday) Twitch.tv/x45x

Right now, I got a slight cold, but I thought I’d drop a line or two to tell you about my latest project. Since I made the fore-mentioned bag above, I learned the Tunsian or Afghan crochet stitch. This stitch is awesome, because it is closely related to knitting. I have yet to get the hang of knitting. I tried a few weeks ago, but it was to no avail. ย Anyway, I decided I need to crochet hook case more my long tunsian needles. I’m in the process of learning a few things, but I’m going to make this really pretty case with a flower on it. I’m going to use the normal tunsian stitch, knit-stitch and, possibly the puff stitch for the flowers. I’ve drawn the items on graph paper and trying to see how I can do with this made up pattern. It’s my first made up pattern.

the next thing I’m going to make is my companies mascot, Dino the VIPKID ย dinosaur. I can’t wait to see what to do with him. I’m going to have to really think long and hard how to make him. ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess I can steal parts from Baymax and Yoshi to create him. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll try to post my patterns on my Ravelry page soon.

So nice to give you an update on my crafts. See you soon!

Here are my critters… :-)

I’m so happy to share with you my new critters. I posted them on Instagram for my followers, who are becoming a lot of spammers. (That is annoying!) I know it is late but I have to share these with you. I love my critters and my brother and best friend (who is in Finland I’m sure playing Smash Bros on Wii U, shout out to x45x) loved them.

Here’s Baymax.. He’s tiny and cute. Ian loved him. ๐Ÿ™‚

Then there’s bulbasaur. He’s seriously tiny. Tinier than I thought he’d be. I found the pattern on Ravelry and I want to thank Nicole’s Nerdy Knots for the pattern.

At this point, I’m feeling pretty serious about crafting and crocheting these critters. I’ve been doing them for almost a year and I really love them. I’ve opened an Etsy store, but I don’t get many customers. I’m thinking about maybe going into town to see if the Gifted Child would be interested. ย It’s a possibly if I could sell these things I’d make big money. ๐Ÿ™‚

Let me know what you all think.
