♥ Crocheted Pillow ♥

I recently discovered a new way of crocheting, corner to corner crocheting. When you look up projects online people call them graphghans. When you look up a pattern it is usually plotted out on “graphing paper.” I created mine on excel and followed a pattern from repeatcrafterme: Heart Eyes Emoji. It’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it. You can create any pixelated image you desire. I liked the Heart Eyes one because I use it a lot and it’s a great gift for Valentine’s Day. I made it for my fiance and turned it into a pillow instead of a graphghan because I wanted it to be done by Valentine’s Day.


The only thing I didn’t like about making this were the loose ends. Since there were more than one color there were a bunch of them. I suggest you weave the ends through your work instead of make knots. The knots always find a way to the front of your work and it’s just going to be a bigger pain to make them stay where they are suppose to be.


Making the back part of the pillow was so much easier because I only had to use one color. Just keep in mind that the back and front aren’t going to be the same exact size because different colors have different sizes. The gold yarn I used is a different brand and it felt like a smaller weight than the other colors. The black and red yarns were thicker. I stretched the front part of the pillow just a little so that I could sew them together. I actually crocheted the edges together instead of sewing but you could do that too if you don’t want to crochet them together.


Before you stuff it, sew most of it together. Try to stuff the pillow while the opening is still large enough to do so. Stuff it evenly then sew the gap closed. I enjoyed this project for the most part. I just didn’t like sewing and knotting all the loose ends together. I’m planning on making more of these emoji pillows. They are fun to make. Let me know if you make one and feel free to post a picture on my Facebook page. Also, take a look at repeacrafterme’s emoticon graphghan. It’s amazing: Emoji Graphghan. She has great instructions on her website too.


When I get a new camera I will make more videos and show you guys how to make this graphghan. Right now I’m just trying to get back into the swing of things. I have a few projects in mind that I want to start as well. Gotta get ready for Spring ^_^

My 1st Afghan!

So I’m sorta taking a break from making dolls at the moment. I guess I’m not feeling as inspired to create new patterns. It’s mostly because of the big changes that have happened the past few months. I’ve been busy with wedding plans and other things, of which I will delve into later. I came across a cute afghan pattern I wanted to try. Here is the link to the website if you guys want to check it out: RepeatCrafterMe. Sarah owns the site and she has super cute designs on there. The direct link to the pattern is right here: Crochet Daisy Afghan. Below are pictures of my progress. I’m not completely happy with it, but then again I was kinda rushing it. Let me know what you guys think.







I didn’t add as many daisies because I simply didn’t have the patience for it after making all the squares and sewing them together. However, I like it better this way and so does my fiance. I also added an extra row to make the entire thing a square. It took me about a week to finish it. I’m about to start on another project which is a larger afghan. Will be posting more about that soon. That one will take much longer because it’s as big as our bed. So, until next project!



Make Your Own Sackboy!

I created this for those who wanted to create their own Sackboy. Last year I posted a video showing people the dolls I have created. I have posted these dolls and links in a previous post called “My Hobby“. Below are the links to the videos. There are two parts to this tutorial. This was my very first doll tutorial so it might not be perfect, but I tried my best at the time ^_^ Read more
