 T-shirt yarn cat bed

She's the Queen of the house! She's the Queen of our hearts! So I guess it's only fitting that her home should be a castle!

 Queen of the Castle cat cave

Because I want my Queen to be safe, in the moat lives a sea monster that captures all that adventure there uninvited! Also, the house has three windows so that she can spy on us from every side!

A fun texture on the underside of the mushroom cap makes this fun house even more like a mushroom.

I promised Ferdy a new home and I think he is happy with this one! He's already checking out the roof! =)

I'm already working on the pattern and I hope to have it ready next month! Ferdy will be included, of course! =D

A House in the Forest

One more House in the Forest ready to be enjoyed by a kitty! ^^

This time around I made the birds in pink and purple as asked by Hilary! I also made the house a bit taller and added a zipper to the cover of the cushion, making it easier to clean or wash.

I'm really happy on how the house came out! I hope that Hilary and Meatball (the lucky kitty) will enjoy it as much as I do! =D

The Into the Woodland House is almost ready!

The house itself is done! =)

 Mushroom cat bed

The spots are done and sewn in place! The variation that had the most votes was big spots and small spots and that's what I made! Thank you all so much for those who voted! =D

 T-shirt yarn mushroom

I added this little detail to the window that I think it makes the house even more whimsical and cute. ^^

I still need to add the lawn and I think I will add another cute detail to the top! ^^

 Crochet brain cactus

I have also started working on the second cactus for the Gardening with Crochet II. Can you guess what it is? =)

In My Project Bag

It's true! I'm working on a new cat house design! =D

 Into the Woodland pet house

This time the inspiration came from my childhood when I watched cartoons with woodland animals. I always found their houses in the trees and mushrooms so whimsical and cute! ^^

As a tribute to those cartoons and stories that let my imagination run wild I'm making a pet home in the shape of a mushroom! ^^

I'm working on a new House in the Forest as well! This one is going to a lucky kitty named Meatball! =D

Have more ideas for cute pet houses that you would like to see me do? Let me know! =)

Pet House Pattern: On the Road Pet Home

It all started in the Spring of 2014 when I was talking with hubby and all of the sudden I saw the cutest image in my mind! A cute little kitty looking out a window of a vintage caravan! Right then I knew that that had to be my next crochet project adventure! =D

One year and a half later here it is! The vision came to life and now you can also make your own On the Road House for your cute pets! ^^

 On the Road House cat crochet bed

The On the Road House is very spacious! (Height: 44cm / 17 inches; Width: 76cm / 30 inches; Depth: 38cm /15 inches) It fits 2 to 3 cats or small dogs. Perfect for those furry friends that like to huddle up together to sleep. It has a pillow inside so that your pets can sleep comfy and warm.

This crochet home has windows on all its sides. You can't escape their eyes!

The On the Road House is made with off white and blue t-shirt yarn, and bulky yarn in blue for the cushion! 

I hope you are as excited as I am to see this project complete!

In My Project Bag

Hello everyone!

My project bag is bursting at the seams! There's cat beds, amigurumi kitties and doggies, and gardens made of crochet! Let's take a look before it explodes! =)

I'm already in the final stages of the On the Road cat bed.The structure and cushion are finished, I just need to add some cute details and it's done! 

 T-shirt yarn cat house

The front has a big door, and windows that your furry buddy can use to see what's going on outside! The On the Road pet house is spacious enough for two kitties or two small dogs.

 Vintage caravan pet bed

The back has three windows. There are windows on the sides as well just like the real vintage caravans!

 Custom amigurumi

This doggie is a custom request! The model is a cute Jack Russel Terrier mix named Penny!

I'm working on the main shapes of the body and latter I will add the spots and fur. I'm really pleased with how she is turning out. ^^ 

 Minion amigurumi crochet

I started to make the small Minion first, for a keychain, but I realized I didn't have anymore safety eyes for his size, so I decided to make a bigger version while I wait for the small eyes to arrive! =)

 Amigurumi cat

This one is a special project, it is inspired by Leeloo! ^^

I really want to capture the shape of her cheeks and nose, I'm trying out different techniques to see which I one like.

 Amigurumi cactus

After all this, when I have a little bit of extra time, which is almost never,  I experiment with new shapes for my crochet succulent and cacti garden. These are the new shapes I came up with, all inspired by cacti and succulents I have in my own collection. =)

And that's it gang! Better start working because I don't have more space in my project bag(s)! =D

In My Project Bag

Hello everyone! It's time again to show you what I've been working on!

First thing I want to show is the progress I made on the On the Road crochet cat house. I've been working hard on it these last weeks and it's coming together really nice. I'm really loving making it! =D

 Vintage caravan pet cave

The front is already completed and waiting to be assembled.

The back is almost ready, I  just need to make the boarder and finish the support.

 T-shirt yarn cat bed

The rest of the house is composed of a really long piece of t-shirt yarn (the longest I made so far!) that makes up the floor, ceiling and sides of the house.

I love this house and I can't wait to see it finished! =D

The second thing I want to show you are the new Buddy Wallets I'm working on! They will be part of the second volume of the Buddy Wallets crochet patterns! =D

 Pikachu crochet wallet

I'm working on a Pikachu wallet, which is almost completed. I'm not completely happy with his ears, I'll will have to test several models and choose the one I think is the best.

 Crochet purse little bird

The second crochet wallet I'm working on is a little birdie. He is sweet and cute, and I really like him! ^^ 

I usually use a black zipper for the crochet wallets but I think this little guy will be really cute with a soft yellow zipper. =)

And that's all for now, gang! ; )

Keep on crafting!!! 

A New Cat House Design

Creating new designs for cat houses is becoming addicting! It's so fun!!! =D

I began to work on this new design in April but I had to pause it because some requests for other projects came through and I had to work on them. 

I'm not entirely sure, now, how the idea for this design came to me but I remember this image of a cute vintage trailer with a kitty peaking through the window appearing in my mind, right then I knew I had to make it!

Vintage caravan pet house

The basic shape of the front of the trailer is done. Just before I had to pause it, I was working on how to reinforce it so that the house can stand. 

I still need to figure out some details, I want the house to have wheels like a real trailer but that means that the bottom would be off of the ground so I have to figure out a way to make the bottom strong enough to hold the weight of the cats, and a way for the cat to go inside the house without having to jump. 

This is exactly why I find creating new designs so appealing and fun, figuring out how to solve all these little problems and creating new fun products! It's like solving a puzzle and I always loved those! =D

Can't wait to get back to it!!!

Hello 2014!!! =D

Hello crafty friends!!!

I hope you have a super 2014 full of health, joy and crochet!!! Hehe =D

2013 was a great year, BuddyRumi grew and took on new challenges. For the first time I started to make finished buddies and not only patterns (that really made a diference this December)! For now the finished buddies are only available through local stores but I'm thinking of making some available through Etsy too.

With all these new challenges some of the pattern releases have been delayed but have not been forgotten. I hope you'll be patient with me and wait a little while longer as I finish the patterns for the Tree Trunk Shaped Cat House and the Periodic Table Blanket.

In 2013 I made some of my favorite buddies so far!
