Bears, stars and purses

Today is a nice rainy day. Rainy days are perfect for crafting. Or in my case, waiting for the sun to peak through for 5 mins, and take pictures! xD;

I've made a few cute things as of late, such as;

This happy bear.
Happy Bear
I made my sister a 'polar bear' as a just because gift. Welll, more I was working on it, and she claimed it as her own xD So I made myself a cute little brown bear.

I felt the urge to make a little clutch, 1. To have. and 2. for a costume I need to finish. (I've been so lazy on the sewing front as of late.) So I searched for a nice pattern to crochet, and discovered the Berry Sweet Clutch pattern.
Pretty White purse
Its done entirely in shell stitch, which is fun, and quite addicting! And the handle is an icord. I still need to find a nice button for it, and line it. But I love it, and my grandma finds it adorable.

When going through my 'I need to make ____' sketches, I was staring at stars I scribbled out. I did some simple math, and figured out a nice pattern :3
Paopu Fruit
So I made a Paopu Fruit. If you're familiar with the Kingdom Hearts series, you know what this is.

Then after do a bit more math figuring, I made a Mario Star!
Mario Star!
Which I made in about an hour while listening to soap operas at my mums house.

And finally, In not knitting or crochet news, I made some envelopes for pen-pals :3
Handmade envelopes
I have some letters I need to reply to, but I've been sort of hit with a writers block. Which always confuses me, as I've got a prompt 'reply to the letter!' but sometimes it just doesn't work out. But making envelopes helps!

I hope you all are having lovely afternoons.

Take Care, and Happy Crafting.

Lions and Fair Isle~

Hello all! I'm back~ =D
Miss me? -listens to crickets chirp-....

Anywhozle, I've been working off an on with little things to fling on the blog, as well as being social, and wanting to rage over schooling situations.

But enough about that, you're all here to see the cute things I make xD.

Little Lion
This is Griever. I made him for my friend's Squall cosplay (from the video game Final Fantasy 8 to those unfamiliar)
He was fun to crochet up. I just went on with my own little 'pattern' I vaguely scribbled out on a business card. In a few hours, I was finished :3

Little Lion
He's so cute ;; and my friend has already expressed great joy about him. I can't wait till she gets him and takes pics :3

I've also been busy with a few other things. Making 'just because' gifts for my friends who've been super supportive of me. Hopefully, I'll photograph their gifts before I give them out. I think all of them are getting some sort of amigurumi xD!

And as the weather has been getting colder, I've been thinking of a new pair of wristwarmers to keep my hands warm. So I thought of a fair isle patterned pair.

Stranded knitting sample
Just a simple stranded pattern I might incorporate into the warmers. The colors blue and brown looks quite nice together, I think.

So how have you all been? Learn any new techniques? Do anything awesome?

Take Care, and Happy Crafting.
