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?

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!

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!!!

Lets start with the projects I finished last week!

Kitty Cat Crochet Hat

The kitty cat hat was requested by a friend and was inspired on the face of the Kitty Kat House.

I think he is really cute and with some minor changes he would make a cute bunny hat as well! =D

Amigurumi Gir and Gir with hood down

These two guys are already on the way to their new home! Can't wait to hear from their new owners! ^^

Blue Monster

The blue monster  is coming along great! I made his little horns and now I'm working on his tail.

He is the cutest! ^^

Kitty Army

The keychain kitties keep multiplying and now I have an army of kitties to finish! =D

What treasures hang from you hook?

In My Project Bag

These past weeks I've been really busy with requests and new projects! Let's take a peek inside my project bag and see what it holds!

Bunny Buns

First up, the Linguine Bunnybuns... from outer space!, as you can see I couldn't resist making one more! Three's a party, right? =D

Cute Monster

I've made some progress on the little monster I'm working on. I'm not sure about the tummy I had made for him, so I'll leave that part for the end.

I think he's turning out to be a cutie! ^^

Kitty Cat Crochet Hat

This kitty cat hat was requested as a gift for a little baby girl! ^^

The nose is not the final nose, it's just a little piece of cardstock so I can visualise the face of the kitty better. The real nose is going to be sewn on! =)

Kitty Keychain

The same person that requested the kitty hat also requested some Kitty Got my Key keychains! We got a real kitty cat lover here! ; )

I just finished Gir and Gir with Hood Down! They will be on the way to their new owners latter this week! =D 

I'm also working on a super secret project that is going to be a gift so I can't show it just yet! =)

My project bag is bursting through the seams! What do you have in yours? =D

Welcome to the new home of BuddyRumi!

Have you had the chance to look around? I'll wait! What do you think? Do you like it? =)

Ooooh I feel so fancy writing in my new website! =D

Today is time to share what's new in my project bag!

First I'm very happy to report that I finally caught the little creatures that were spying on me! =)

I had no reason to be scared they are the cutest little space creatures that I ever saw! 

Caught them by surprise studying earth's flora:

Bunny Buns

Love their little tails!

These little cuties are the Linguine Bunnybuns...From outer space! created by Wayuki.

They are easy, fun to make and free! Check them out!

Cutest Amigurumi Monster

Can you tell I love this blue? ^^

I'm working on a little cutie of my own. I realised I didn't make a little monster yet, so I decided to change that! =)

At first I thought I would make is belly in white and orange, but now I'm thinking in substituting the orange with pink...Will have to make both and choose... =)

And that's it for today!

As always feel free to leave your comments or questions below!

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 crafty friends! =D

Today I'm showing you what I managed to finish these last weeks!

I finished the bunny I was making for a friend, she already received so I can finally show it to you!

My friend was very happy with it, she's expecting her first baby boy and she asked me to make this bunny for him! ^^

I hope he likes it too!!! ^^

Bunny and Little Bunny.jpg

I also made some new little keychain buddies! ^^ 

They were inspired by the little white bunny that the bunny I made for my friend is holding.

First I made it with yarn of the same weight, but decided to try them out with a light weight yarn too and they came out really cute! ^^ 

And with some minor changes I also made a little mouse!

These little buddies will be available as a free pattern very soon! =D

And last but not least, I made a Big Eyes crochet hat for my nephew! He celebrated his first birthday the past week, and I, as a very proud auntie, had to make him a gift! ^^

I've also finished the helmet crochet hat and a second take on the aviator hat but I know they have not been seen by the people they are going to, so I have to show you those ones next time! ;)

What beauties are you working on? Show me! =D

Hi crafty friends!!!

Another week has passed and is time once again to show you what I've been up to! =)

Little Bunny 2.jpg

The bunny is beginning to take shape. I'm not entirely happy with the shape of the body, I think I'll end up making it a little bit more rounded.

Helmet Crochet Hat.jpg

I'm working on a crochet helmet. I'm really happy with how it's coming along, but unfortunately I've ran out of yarn so this project has to wait a few more days to be completed.

And, of course, I've started working on yet another Kitty Kat House! =)

Hello crafty friends! =D

I've been working on some new projects! Let's check them out!

For some time now I've been wanting to make some fingerless mittens for me, but I never got around to it. 

That changed when I found the Neon Love Mitts at Pom Pom Quarterly. I imiediatly fell in love with them and knew that these were the ones! Cherry on top of the cake: It's a free pattern!!! =D

Hello happy crafty people! =D

Sorry I've been MIA these past weeks. I started to sell some of my Buddies at a local store and while it has been a lot of fun, it has also been a lot of work! =)

I have been working hard on providing for the store because I want my items to always be available to the people who visit! Because of this I feel that I don't have as much time to work on new projects as I used to have, but I'm working really hard on being more organized and optimizing my process so that we can still enjoy both sides! =)

I've been trying out the new safety eyes I've ordered on the keychain kitties.

Hello! =D

I have cat house fever!!! =D 

Just yesterday I've started a new cat house in a new shape!

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?

Hello my wonderful crafty friends! =D

First of all I'm sorry for not being as present as before but I've been super busy, fortunately =D! This month has been so busy that I'm afraid that one of these days my hubby is going to come home and find me all tangled up in yarn, looking like a yarn mummy!!! Hehehe

This past week I was finally able to finish Lucas the Amigurumi Rag Boy. His pattern is available for free on BuddyRumi's Facebook page. After July the patterns for Alice and Lucas will only be available through purchase on BuddyRumi's stores, so go there and click click click! =D

I was also able to work a little bit more on the Trunk Shaped Cat House! Remember me saying I wanted to give the kitty that lived in this house some neighbours? Well, here they are! =D

Hi crafty critters!!! =D

Oh wow! July is turning out to be a really exciting and busy month! =D

These past weeks I've been working hard on two new orders!!! One is an amigurumification of a friend and the other is an amigurumification of a video game character! Unfortunately, for now, I can't show you these projects until they are finished and delivered because they are going to be gifts and I don't want to take any chances on ruining the surprises. =) But I'll show them as soon as I can! =D

What I can show you is the progress I made on the Amigurumi Rag Boy.

The polo shirt is the only thing that is unfinished, but it's almost done. I think I will add, at least, one more row to the collar and then I still need to put some buttons and make the sleeves. Oh, and one more boot hehe =)

Now I'm going to work some more on the the Periodic Table Blanket pattern! I know you are wating for it!; )

What are you working on?
