Crocheted Jellyfish

Here’s another creation of mine. I’ve been gravitating towards cutesy characters. I found this on Pinterest and I decided to make my own. I didn’t follow any of the patterns. I figured it was easy enough to wing it. Click on the image below for the pattern. Let me know what you think 🙂

Make your own Angry Birds!

Who’s excited for the new Angry Birds movie coming out next month! *raises hand* I saw the trailer the other day and thought that the movie would probably be a hit, especially with kids. I can’t wait to see it 🙂 And, as a tribute to that movie, I have decided to make all the Angry Birds birds. Not sure if I want to make all the pigs yet but I’m definitely making all the birds. I have Red, Blue and Yellow so far. I’m currently working on Stella. Below are the links to my video and the patterns. Let me know what you think guys 🙂

Crocheting Disgust from Inside Out

Inside Out was a great movie. I was hesitant to watch it but when I did, I loved it. I saw it with my fiance and we both fell in love with the film. I was thinking of what I should make and I decided I should make something from the movie. Since green is my favorite color and I thought Disgust was pretty cool, I wanted to make a doll based on Disgust. I had to use multiple images because it is always tricky when you are working off of just one image. Here are the images I was working from and maybe they will also help you visualize what your doll will look like.

This last image was from a pattern on craftsy. I just saw this image on google images. For my doll I decided to add more “flowers” on her dress because that’s what she looks like in the movie. Also, I wanted to make her hair the same way because doing it with strands of yarn wouldn’t have given me the look I wanted. I also wanted to make her hands more realistic. I did the eyelashes the same as the last image because making them stick out just made her look creepy. If you would like the pattern and a look at the doll I make scroll down for an image, the video I made on YouTube and the link to the pattern.
