Crochet Princess Serenity

I love Sailormoon and this is her best form ever as she looks sooo innocently sweet and adorable. My Sweetheart suggested that instead of making something for everyone, make something for yourself... and i did. She is adorable... but... its seating in my bag of "created" stuff... which i have no heart to get rid of nor keep on the shelves... after all amigurumi serenity may turn grey and dull with dust serenity... i dont want that to happen. She is lovely...

WIP : Crochet DragonBall Character

I started off with wanting to make an Anime Char thats Perfect enough with its tiny nose and that curvy face cut. The journey to DragonBall Char just started...

Started off with a Head and the shoe base... and i was enthusiastically ready to tackle a cuddly Anime Char...

The head Pattern can be found at My Nearly Perfect Anime Head Pattern

I had to make the shoes as i really have no idea how to make even a baby shoes before, but then i used my real shoes as reference and made a base and two side and whip stitch them up. it looks cute...

My Semi-Naruto One hand Glove

I know, Malaysia is a rain-forest country, Why do i need a mitten/glove in the first place. Last week my hand started hurting real bad... Too much Knitting and Crocheting. So i thought if i made my self a mitten/glove the pain can be tied up, yes it worked, some how the heat it gave with the tightness of the gloves kinda made my hand feel way better. Here is my lovely Semi-Naruto gloves. Its also my first Glove/mittens i ever made. However i do really need to learn how to end the finishing string neatly...

I added on a Button and two little hanging heart beads.

So sorry, as this is my first mitten/glove... i dont have the pattern for this, as i made it based on my hand size and shape. See the last finger, the finish off thread is still hanging loose there... I couldnt get a Free Naruto Glove Pattern Online, so i made a simple "Cincai" one for my self :D (Cincai = Fast and Messy Made)

I will update this if i ever made another one :P

Dragon Ball Char in Progress Pattern

Recently i've been working on Anime for my close ones... And i really don't like the nose-less anime characters with buttoned eye, so i decided to make a customized Anime Head as after all, the big cute eyes are the main attraction to Anime in my perspective :P

I know... my embroidered eyes are hideous... hey its a testing piece so i don't mind. The head seem to fit nearly any Anime series like Inuyasha, Dragon Ball and so... The heads are just too cute so i made few of them but too lazy to embroider them.

How to Make it is below :)

This is how i started my work and yes it took hours and hours of opening rows and redoing the "Math" till i get it right. Somehow im still not satisfied with the nose as its cute but its not sharp enough for me :P Was thinking to add in plain row of sc in between of the increase n decrease rows at the nose part but then im afraid i will ruin this cute head. So i will do it later.My work in progress and how terrible my Pattern writing was. Its as big as my palm, yup BIG head and small body goes well in chibi version, but some how i feel that this isnt a chibi version or is it?

Okie, the Pattern... Here you go :D

Crochet Polygon Shapes

Recently i was having trouble with Crocheting shapes and the curves... So i decided to play around with crochet. Here is my Problem which made me do this tutorial... See the belly and the curve. Its confusing on how to write down the whole pattern. But yet i do this instead :)

Here is the curve i made and it worked, yet with a regret, i should have worked on the Rayquaza directly instead of separately (Ah i had no confidence to work on it straightly... the fear of failure in perfection attacked my mind again)

How to make Mini Roses

Im pure lazy to put up the roses in a basket of small green sponge foam thingy. I will update the picture later...

Suggested Material :

Paper Strip, or Ribbon, or even a straw!!

Its just Twisting and Turning only afterall. The more longer the strips the more heavy the petals will look. The more thicker the size of the strips, the more bigger the rose will look.

But here is how to make paper roses :

1) Roll the edge up so it look like the pict above.

Paper Lego-like Swan

I learn this Paper craft years ago when i was at high school, (Warning skip the paragraph as im mumbling) My parents own a stationary shop so i always see a lot of unwanted chopped off papers at the back. Last few months ago, i was "working" with my parents at shop and got tooo bored... so my itchy fingers kinda dig up the pile of papers and made a staff working here to help cut it down into the size i want (of course not by hand but by a humongous paper cutting machine) I sat there watching customers come and go as my job was pretty much watching and accounting, when done with that i make these legos as i wasn't allowed to use my lappy. I made few hundreds i guess, and join them up a little at a time to give some inspiration to keep doing that :P When im done in a whole day (took me hours) i manage to finish it up and i left it at shop... Recently mom took all my "Trash" from shop and dump it to me... and i saw these extra pieces of paper lego's and some unfolded papers and decided to do this blog :) (Mumbles are over)
