I have been searching free patterns for Dolphins on the web. Didn't come across anything. So. I started crocheting as by now I have fair idea about the increase and decrease. I haven't written the pattern in detail, but defintely note down few.

I kind of like fish a lot. So, I am a
I tried this fish from the free patterns available at the blog below. She has really really amazing stuff in her blog. I wish I could crochet as beautiful as her. I have learned crochet when I was in school, but never made anything out of that. Actually when I started reading patterns, it blew my head away. But once, I got a hang of what its written, its quite simple. he he.


I came across the daisy, oswald amigurumi toys, unfortunately there was no free pattern available. And for an amateur like me, its very difficult to create the pattern.
Smartly, I have searched the web for a flower pattern and fortunately came across a beautiful pattern. So, I took inspirationa from this pattern. Except I made the pistil bigger as I need to have eyes, nose and lips for Daisy. She has quite amazing free patterns.
Legs, body and hands are just imagined and kept crocheting. The end result is good. Without a pattern, I must say..I am happy.

I came across this free pattern Ninja and instantly started working as I am sure Pratham will love to have a ninja in his collection. As I have started crocheting recently, so very limited colours of wool. I will go this weekend to buy lotsa of wool.
The inspiration came from the site,
I have to join crafster now..:)

My first amigurumi Doll...!

I made this doll but I am not too happy as the cuteness is missing. I will try again with a smaller hook and thread. Probably that may help..
I think..I am just not good with it photography, painting, toys ..I remember, even during my childhood, whenever I made dolls..they never came out cute..They looked just like me..ha ha..
That is the reason why I love painting scenaries, flowers. That is the reason why I love clicking scenes and flowers again. And that is the reason why I love making animals rather than dolls..too Bad..
anyways..always room for improvement.
This pattern is again from Lionbrand site


My fourth project in a span of about 10 days, hmmmm...I am happy with myself. :) After about couple of more projects, I should be able to design my own patterns. Till now, I have been working on the free patterns available on Web.

My Bunny, which is loved the most and so far the best finished amigurumi. Here is a pic.
This pattern is again from Lionbrand site..:)

Amigurumi- Elephant

I am just loving this new found art, I must say....Japanese arts are addictive. I have come across this art recently about a week ago and here I am with my third project...:) . Internet has lots of freebies for amigurumi and I am surely going to try each and every pattern.
As I have a son, I tend to make more boys stuff then girls..however girls choice are always more adorable. The moment I have started making this tiny elephant, my son is been checking my progress...enthusiasm..I must say!!. This is a free pattern I came across in lionbrand site under crochet free patterns..

Finally, a pic for you ...:)

Amigurumi- Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting small animals or toys. The dolls are done in single crochet in the round. The rounds are never joined, instead being worked in a spiral. Amigurumi are made up of parts that are crocheted, stuffed, and sewn together. The parts are usually an over-sized round head, a cylindrical body, arms and legs, ears, tail (if needed) and embellishments. Sometimes, felt is used to create the ears, face, or nose. Felt can also make some pretty cute embellishments.

I have just starting this art of making toys by crocheting, my first project was the tortoise..I am now making a gollo mollo..I don't know what it is and how its going to turn out. I have made a body, a tail, 2 ears and 2 hands and a tummy...
I think..I have used a smaller hook and thats the reason its looking a little stiff..anyways..learning on the way. I still have to find eyes and cotton to stuff. After the final touchover..I will upload the pic soon...Keep waiting..
I am not going to upload the pic. The finish product is gifted before I realiase I still have to click a pic to share here...

Leg Warmer- part of winter passion! :-)

I wanted to waer a nice colourful leg warmer when I went for the new year celebration near the mountains. As usual..very much me...:-) I could complete only one peice when we left for the vacation. After coming back from vacation, I didn't even have to time to look at the next leg warmer as there were lots of pending works from birthday celebration...on and on..Finally around mid-jan I could finish the second peice. So here it goes..
