It's officially the month of L-O-V-E and I wanted to kick it off with a free pattern. This pattern first appeared in Inside Crochet's Feb 2015 Newsletter, but I never had the chance to type it up for the blog my ravelry shop.
Aside from this very PUN tastic little bee, I've also decided to put together another pun filled photo, can you guess what they're trying to say?
Whale pattern: to be released (it was my prototype for Moby Whale
Lamb pattern: Lila Lamb from Huggable Amigurumi. Instead of yarn, I used cotton thread
Bee and Heart Lolly pattern: Bee My Valentine (the free pattern above)
I've also decided to add another pun inspired amigurumi for Feb 2017 - after all, this MIGHT be my last year of having the luxury to crochet (I graduate college later this year and I'll be working soon)
It's a valentine's owl! I'm actually thinking of whether to give him a bouquet of flowers or chocolates, or a little gift box! What is your pick?
Well, that's it for now. I hope you all had a wonderful January and that February will be even better!!!
Happy New Year (a bit late) and Happy Chinese New Year (well, almost!). As the lunar new year approaches, let’s all bid bad luck adieu and channel all the good luck!
I’ve actually had quite the year and I’m so thankful to EVERYONE who has been with me! Last October, we officially launched Huggable Amigurumi, my very first Amigurumi book with the amazing Martingale & Co.
I also guested in the blog of the uber amazing Stacey Trock of FreshStitches.com, Modern Baby Crochet, Cuddly Crochet, and Crocheted Softies! We talked about Huggable Amigurumi and little Lila! She also has a giveaway for my book!! You can read the post HERE.
Speaking of Stacey, I also got to try out Stacey's AmiClub, and I've been LOVING it! It's super cool to be part of an online group (i've never been). We get to talk about ami and non ami stuff, crochet and non crochet, and she even shares lots of cool tips! Overall, I've been enjoying getting to actually interact with more people from all over! Ps, she also has sales and freebies there.
I also got to watch Moana late last year and I decided to make my own little Heihei and Pua, don’t they just look adorable? Their patterns are available HERE for Heihei and HERE for Pua.
I also got to finally put up my pattern for the rooster I made for Inside Crochet up for FREE from now until 1 week after Chinese New Year’s, get it HERE.
I also got to make a brand new rooster - it’s a bit less humanoid and more like a cartoon version of the real one! A lot of people have been asking for the pattern so I have decided to post it for FREE for 24 HOURS — I read about this from another amigurumi designer. After 24 hours or by Jan 23, 2017; 3:30pm, GMT+8, it will be for $2.99. Ravelry will automatically give it for free, no coupon code needed for those 24 hours!
Here’s a cutie pie photo of Heihei, Baby Rooster, and Riley Rooster!
Ps, I know everyone’s been wondering about my old free patterns and what happened to them! I was reformatting my tumblr and it got deleted. I’m working on retyping each of those free patterns again and I shall PDF them to make sure they’re all there and won’t be accidentally deleted.
I hope you’re gonna have a wonderful Chinese New Year and that there may be many more luck and joy for everyone!
So it's been quite a while since I actually wrote a proper blog post (especially a birthday one!), so here goes.
This day, well, this year rather, marks a very special moment in my life - it's the year I officially turn 21, my last year of undergrad, and the year my book was launched. My road to 21 has definitely been filled with TONs of ups and downs! From personal crises to professional highs, it was an interesting year to say the least.

As I celebrate my 17th birthday, i can't help but look back at the life i've had. Obviously, i havent had a long life yet, but in the short amount of time i've been alive, i've gotten to experience so many wonderful experiences.
Ever since i was a little kid, i've ALWAYS been an animal lover...even if at times i was allergic to them.
And it still hasn't changed. But nowadays, my love for animals is on a different level. I now crochet them. Amigurumi Crocheted Animals have given me a wonderful opportunity - being able to get to know you all. When i first started my page i was around 15 years old...and honestly, i had no idea that my creations would get this much appreciation.2 years later, here I am happier and more thankful than ever for each one of you guys. I may not know you all personally, but, life without you guys would be a whole lot emptier.
This year alone, I've had so many wonderful memories because of all of you. And here are some of them:
this year has definitely been quite a whirlwind and i am so excited to see what being 17 will bring [hello driver's license :p]
below is a quote that i've been trying to live by recently. and i hope you will too... it's never to late to dream big...plus the bigger you dream, the more driven you become. the more driven you become, the more you will achieve. even if what you achieve isnt as big as your dream, it's still quite a great accomplishment =]
