Crochet project: Leila the Pony (2)

My work-in-progress: this lovely pony girl! You can find the pattern at lilleliis’ Etsy shop.

I finished all my stuffed parts like a month ago, just missing a few more details. Then doing the sewing part which I dislike the most because I’m very bad at attaching everything together!

And I wonder why my pony looks like a donkey?

So, finally I made some time on a Sunday evening to finish what I started so long ago.

Libelle Winterfair 2014 @ Nekkerhal Mechelen

I went to the Libelle Winterfair event this weekend with my sister. And I have to say it was a very nice and enjoying event. Mostly I just take a look at the scrapbooking and crocheting stands on such events. But this time I really took my time to go around.

Here are some pictures. Check out more on my pinterest: Libelle Winterfair 2014.

Crochet project: Leila the Pony (1)

Hello again!

It’s been a long time that I’ve posted anything on my blog. So I thought I might update it a bit.

Not very interesting but just good enough for some new inspiration. And so I pushed myself to make some time again for my lovely hobby of crocheting!

Top Tech Tips – shaping Amigurumi

I think this might be useful one day.

Cara Medus

This post is otherwise known as ‘getting a bit further beyond trial and error’! Whenever I sit down to start shaping part of an amigurumi figure, there is always a certain amount of undoing and re-doing that goes on. I have in mind the shape I am trying to achieve, but there is often more luck than judgement involved as to whether it will turn out as I expected on the first attempt, and sometimes even the second, or third….
