The little guy is so cute and sweet that I couldn’t resit but to amigurumify him as well! ^^

On top of all he is blue, my favorite color! ^^

Blue amigurumi Hatch

I wanted to have him with me all the time so I turned him into a keychain!

With Kasey’s permission I’m in the process of writing the crochet pattern for Hatch and Robber Ant! =D

In My Project Bag: Ants and Mini Me

Time to see what’s hiding among yarns and hooks in my project bag! ^^

Robber ant amigurumi

First up is this little guy that might be familiar to some of you! He is the amigurumification of Kasey Golden’s Robber Ant! =D

Kasey is an amazing illustrator and one of my favorites on YouTube! I love her style and all her illustrations but my favorites are definitely the ants illustrations!

Mini Me amigurumi

And now is time to update you on the progress of Mini Me 2.0. As you can see the lower part of the body is done! She’s growing slowly but growing! ^^

Can’t wait to have the body done so I can chose her clothes! ^^

This time my crochet project bag isn’t too full but it has two exiting projects that I’m loving working on!

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

Amigurumi Video Tutorial: Zombie Finger

Autumn is here, the leaves are changing, the air is humid and fresh, and all the fun holidays are coming! =D

The first one to sneak up on us is Halloween! (Boo!) If you're plotting a party you know you need one of these: a spooky fun amigurumi zombie finger!

Follow along the video tutorial below and make your own! =D

On the next video we'll attach the nail to the finger, shape the finger and add a little detail to make it even more ghoulish! =D  

Don't forget to share your creations!

 

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. =)

What's on your hooks? Share on BuddyRumi's Facebook page!!! =D

Off the Hook: Amigurumi Diddl and Owl Crochet Wallet

This guy was requested by a friend and was a really fun amigurumi project to work on!

I love him! =D

Amigurumi Diddl crochet plush

Although he came out much bigger than I had anticipated at first, I really love him! It was one of those projects where you come up with new ways to do things, all comes together really well and the end result is gorgeous! ^^

Diddl crochet hand

I love his little hands! ^^

I can't wait to make the pattern so you can enjoy him too! Oh and he is not going to be alone!… ^^

Another crochet project I finished this week was Mr. Owl Buddy Wallet! He is going to be a birthday gift, hope the birthday girl will like him! =)

Second World Amigurumi Exhibition at RESOBOX Gallery

In October I was invited to participate in the Second World Amigurumi Exhibition by RESOBOX, which was a exciting and intimidating at the same time! =D

Amigurumi crochet bush basil

This year the artists must make at least one piece that represents their country in some way. I made a bush basil with a red carnation, and a sardine, both traditional symbols of the Popular Saints Festivities that take hold of Portugal in the summer! =D

Amigurumi fish sardine

Today I went to the post office to send them on their way! I felt anxtious, excited and a little sad to let them go...

Amigurumi for the World Amigurumi Exhibition 2015

I hope they make success at the exhibition and that they get adopted by a loving amigurumi fan! ^^

The exhibition is going to take place at the RESOBOX Gallery in Long Island City, between  the 11th of December and the 28th of February. If you can go say hello to these guys for me! ^^

In My Project Bag

Strange noises are coming from inside my project bag… I think it's haunted!!! =P

These past few weeks I've been working on my new crochet project: Buddy Wallets - Spooky Edition.

Frankenstein crochet wallet

First up had to be Frankenstein, one my favorite ghouls. ^^

First I wanted to make him scary but he just took control of my crocheting and he came out the sweetest Frankenstein ever! I love when this happens, you look at your work and they tell you what they want to look like! =D

Mummy crochet wallet

Now I'm working on the second spooky buddy, the Mummy. I made him with a off white colored yarn to give him a dirty and weathered look. He's got this crazy eyes that I love but I'm not sure on how to make his mouth… maybe he will tell me… =)

Vampire crochet wallet

While the Mummy doesn't show me how he want's his mouth, I started on the third buddy. The yarn is a really pale grey that I think will be look great for this eerie buddy's skin! (The photo came out darker.)

Appart from these three guys I already have sketched out three more buddy wallets perfect for Halloween! They'll be available to buy on Etsy and their patterns will be bundled up in a spooky pack on Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy! I will let you know when they are coming out so you can run… to get them! Hehe =P

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
