BRAIDS
Cut 18 pieces of yarn (9  for each earflap) about 30 inches long. Fold each bunch in half and push the folded end through an opening in the bottom of each earflap. Pull the unfolded ends through the loop and pull tight. Braid the strands and tie a knot to secure the braid. Complete the second braid the same way.


ASSEMBLY
  I highly recommend pinning all the pieces together before sewing anything to make sure you have all the pieces done right and that you get them in the positions you like best before sewing. It seems like alot of extra work, but this will save you ALOT of hassle.
  Sew the mouth piece in the bottom center part of the beanie. The buttons are sewn three rows up the mouth piece and 2" apart.
   Ears are sewn on top 3.5" apart and the bottom of the ears are folded to give them the bent look. The horns are sewn in the center of the ears.
  Nostrils are made from yellow felt and glue in place or sewn.

Agent P from Phineas and Ferb

Pin It


  I had been searching for patterns for Perry as Agent P, Phineas and Ferb to make for my son. I came upon this seller in etsy.com; WigglyFrog. When I saw how amazing her amigurumis look; I knew I had to buy the patterns. But I never purchased patterns before so I decide to buy Agent P first and see how well the pattern was written. I found the pattern to be over all amazing since its well explain and it also has several images to guide you through when assembling him. Love it. :) Will definitely buy the Phineas and Ferb patterns later in the future.
  Phineas and Ferb is our favorite cartoon. Perry...well he's our absolutely favorite character out of them all. I thought that this plushie will be a great Christmas gift for my little boy. I had to make him while he was in school so he wouldn't ask "what are you making?".

Mary-Jane Slippers

Pin It

I wanted to take this picture without my socks since I ♥ my tattoo. I wanted to show it off. :)
  I haven't made myself anything in awhile. Since its starting to get cold, I decide to make myself some slippers. If my feet are not well cover when its cold my right leg starts hurting cause I hurt my leg when I was 15yrs. old while playing soccer.
  I search slippers in Ravelry and found these real cute ones; the Mary-Jane Slippers. They're real easy to make even a beginner could crochet these. Each slipper is made in one piece, so there are no seams and its done in single crochet. I finish mine in about an hour. I absolutely love them that I'm going to be making a few more pairs for myself and some for my sister since she love them as well. :)
