Maker Monday: Crochet Chill Pill

What do we have here? Just a couple of chill pills! 🤣  Welcome to a fresh installment of Maker Monday, a series where I try other makers patterns and learn from them! This week's pattern comes from @tinyfriendsamigurumi! I made this little chill pill in the original size and it came out ADORABLE! It was so quick and easy that I thought it would be the perfect thing to continue my bulky yarn journey! My jumbo one was a bit harder for me to make, and I'm still learning good technique for chunky yarn. The eyes look ok, but the I'm...

Meet Owlbert, the Dapper Owl!

  Everyone! Stop what you're doing and meet Owlbert, the dapper owl! He's the newest creation from @cutecuddlescrochet and the cutest owl I've ever seen in my life! As soon as I saw him I knew I had to make one of my own! He's too much! 😭 Owlbert took me about 3 hours and the pattern was pretty easy with great instructions and lots of photos. It's probably not an absolute beginner pattern because of all the color changes and sewing but hes so worth it! Just look at his little tophat! If you need an Owlbert in your life, you can...

Maker Monday - Dolphin Stuffed Animal

Maker Monday is back with a big success! I finally made a cute stuffed animal! This weekend I really was in the mood to make something new and remembered I had a dolphin pattern from @theresascrochetshop! I specifically got this one because it looked challenging but doable. All one piece except some fins and this time I was armed with PINS!As some of you may remember, I attempted an elephant a few weeks back and had difficulty keeping limbs straight. You guys were right, pins make such a difference. I only had to sew everything on ONCE! And I loved this...

Maker Monday - Ice Cream Cones from The Turtle Trunk!

Welcome back to Maker Monday part 2! This week, I made the CUTEST ice cream cones from a pattern by @theturtletrunk! I bought this pattern a while back and thought with summer coming up, it was definitely time to pull it out! Once I looked it over, I knew it was the perfect challenge for me this week. Here's why I loved it! I love patterns that can be used in multiple ways and have repeat value. I fell in love with just the basic cone because it worked up fast and I could make a million flavors. I finally got...

Maker Monday - Beep the Robot by Storyland Amis!

Welcome to the first installment of "Maker Monday"! For awhile, I've wanted to take more time to seek out patterns from other designers that will either teach me something new, push my boundaries, or are just super cute. So when I saw this jumbo robot from @storyland_amis, honestly it fit all my criteria! Here's why I love it! I don't usually do large amigurumi with lots of parts because I get very impatient but this was too cute to pass up. I worked slowly through all the different parts and even tried my first rectangle crochet shape! Y'all... It didn't go...
