Studio Stories: Queen of the Castle House Pattern Finished

Accompany me while I finish the Queen of the Castle House! 

I've been working on this pattern since 2016 and this day was hard to come, but it finally came and I wanted to share it with you! =D

Pet House Pattern: Into the Woodland

Magical, whimsical and with a super cute neighbor!

Into the woodland cat cave

The new crochet pattern to make the home of your furry friend's dreams is ready! =)

Pet t-shirt yarn cave

It has a window on the side so kitty can observe the outside without being spotted.

Mushroom pet bed pattern

The Into the Woodland House is made mainly with t-shirt yarn! It's very comfy, with a cushion inside where kitty can curl up and dream!

The house is 37cm (14.57 inches) tall, 31cm (12.20 inches) wide and the lawn has a diameter of 66cm (26 inches).

T-shirt yarn mushroom pattern

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

Ferdy amigurumi caterpillar

I promised Ferdy a home and I made good on that promise now it's up to you to provide the purrfect neighbor! =)

The PDF crochet pattern for the Into the Woodland House has 46 pages with detailed step by step instructions with pictures to demonstrate assembly or any special techniques. It includes instructions on how to make the house sturdy so it can hold its shape.

 

Off the Hook: Into the Woodland House

The Into the Woodland House is done and Ferdy is ready to move in! =D

The lawn was the final touch and I think it came out really cute! ^^

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

Of the Hook: 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

No, I'm not making another amigurumi Diddle. This time I'm making Diddlina! =D

Diddlina crochet

I started with the feet and legs but realized that I hadn't chosen the colors for her clothes yet so I had to stop before joining the legs.

Amigurumi mouse

The body parts are crocheted the same way for Diddl and Diddlina so I started to make the snout before moving on to the clothes.

Amigurumi birds in nest

On the House in the Forest front almost all the pieces are ready. This time I made the birds in pink and purple as requested by the person who is going to get it! =)

House in the forest lawn

Now I'm starting to work on the lawn. I like the lawn to be soft and fluffy so I place t-shirt yarn on all spaces available. This one isn't ready yet and it's very clear that the area where all the spaces are used is much fluffier. =)

Here is a quick update on what I'm up to! =)

I'm still working on more crocheted plants for  the Gardening with Crochet  patterns.

Crochet flower ball

This time I wanted to make something with more colour so I'm working on a ball of flowers that will be later added to a vase. Similar to the basil bush I made for the Popular Saints celebrations but with flowers.

Now that the cold and rain seem to finally have arrived, I started to get more requests for crochet hats. I'm also taking this opportunity to finish the patterns for all the models I've already created.

I'm also working on updated versions of the Kitty Kat House pattern, the Gir with Hood Down and Robot Gir patterns.

For the Kitty Kat House I changed the way that the wires are incorporated into the body of the house, and for the Girs I updated the way to reinforce their necks. These updated versions of the patterns will be available soon! =)

And last but not least:

I always like to learn new techniques to make my buddies even more special so I started to experiment with needle sculpt to give them more detail.

I can't wait to incorporate this techniques in my buddies! =D

What are you up to?

In My Project Bag: 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 hello awesome crafty people! =D

Today I can finally show you the rest of the projects I have finished. They have been delivered! =)

First, is a second take on the aviator hat.

Baby Aviator Hat Felt.jpg

It was requested by a couple that is expecting a baby boy! ^^

For this aviator hat I made the goggles in felt, and instead of making the straps that go to the back like the first one, I made straps attached to the ears of the hat that can be tied under the chin. I think this one also came out really cute! What's your favorite version?

I also completed the helmet hat. It was a birthday gift! =D

I think it came out pretty cool! What do you think? =D

I'm also starting another Kitty Kat House, this one will be a little bit more colourful. And I'm also working on a Gir and a Gir with the Hood Down that was requested.

What do you have hanging from your hooks?

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!

For now it may look like it's another cat shaped cat house but I promise it is not! =)

Can you guess in what shape it will be? I'll give you a clue: He lives in the forest and rides a very special bus! ^^

I've also ordered some safety eyes in new colors and was playing around with them to see how they looked.

I'm making new kitties using the Kitty Got My Key pattern to test the new safety eyes.

I love the blue and green ones, the yellow ones are okay. I also bought some orange ones but I didn't like them that much, maybe they just need the right pattern... =)

What are you working on?
