Hello everyone! I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀 I’ve had the occasional request for a badger, mostly because I have patterns for (or are close to) the other Hogwarts mascots from Harry Potter, but none for a badger yet. I thought it sounded like fun (love those eye stripes!) but it just didn’t feel right without having … Continue reading New Shop Pattern! Plus a Wizarding Sale ♥
Hi everybody! With Halloween coming I couldn’t resist the urge to make something costume related, so while this isn’t a plush I hope you all might still enjoy it! It’s a cozy hooded cowl dressed up either like a dragon or a unicorn. Paired with a warm coat or a fuzzy sweater I think it would be the perfect thing to keep you cozy and … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Hooded Cowl
Hi everyone! In preparation for the holidays I made these super simple little plushies that work perfectly as either ornaments or charms 😀 You can hang them from your keys or attach them to your bag. Of course for the winter I just had to dress them up in little scarves, but you could easily leave it off so the finished plush looks more like … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Winter Plush Charms
I’ve had the idea to do a dragon scarf for maybe a year by now, haha 😀 But I wasn’t sure how I wanted to tackle the head and also what dragon to do? I was torn between Haku from Spirited Away and Shenron from Dragon Ball. Well, I decided to just jump in and do it already, especially since Chinese New Year is this … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday! Haku Dragon Scarf
The month of Halloween commences today! I hope you all enjoy the projects I have planned 😀 This one, like all the rest, is meant to be an easy way to add to or complete your Halloween ensemble ^-^ This week I used some scrap black fleece to make a scoodie :B That is a cross between a scarf and a hood that are sometimes seen among the nerdy crafting crowd. Except this particular scarf/hood combo has a little face mask so you can lurk amid the shadows, pockets at the end of the scarf, and big fleece shurikens to wield! Pair this with a black outfit and you’re an instant ninja that’s snuggly and warm to boot!
The size is sort of an adult one-size-fits-most, but since it’s only a hood it should also fit well on most bigger kids as well. The mask is held in place by buttons, which not only make the mask easy to adjust while you’re wearing it, but easy to adjust while you sew it as well. You can simply move the placement of the buttons to make the mask fit tighter or higher on your ninja-in-training 😀
Wow. This project took sooo incredibly long. But I think it was worth it. This is definitely one of those long time investment type projects. This project is the Anouschka Scarf from Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2010 issue. It’s a really cool looking scarf that has multiple looks depending on how you treat it. Pull on the inner cord and it scrunches up the bubbles into these lovely drapey ruffles, our leave the inner cord loose and you get to see the full waves of the bubbles.

I fell in love with this project the moment I saw it. Wouldn’t you too? This is the incredibly adorable Mr. Fox Stole My Heart collar from Tiny Owl Knits. I begged my boyfriend to buy this pattern for me when by birthday came around and he did not disappoint x3!

Woo! Finally had a chance to photograph some of the things I’ve been knitting on the side. This is the Floral Scarf, designed by Nicky Epstein, from the Holiday 2004 issue of Vogue Knitting. I remember buying this magazine from a huge lot of old Vogue Knittings from eBay. It was quite a fun adventure building up my magazine stash like that, so I’m incredibly glad that I got around to finally using the patterns.
