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!

 

 

My Kickstarter Campaign

Yes, that’s right, I’ve started a Kickstarter campaign. I’ve thought about that for a while now and I’ve decided to finally do it. I’m making a book that will teach others how to make their own crochet plushies. I started with 30 days and now I have about 27 days left. I’ve already reached my goal but I’ve added a stretch goal on my page. Check out the details here in this link: The GJB Guide to Crocheted Dolls.

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
