To Infinity....and Beyond!!

Greetings, Space Rangers! Here is my Buzz Lightyear Amigurumi doll. I made him for my 16 month old son who is a Toy Story fanatic. It took a lot of time, patience, and hard work but the smile on my son's face when he saw him made it all worth it. I used my new Sharpie Stained fabric markers for some of the smaller details. I don't know how I would have done it without them! 

 This was one of my most difficult projects yet. He is made out of Acrylic yarn, felt, Sharpies, and stuffed with polyester fiberfill.

Here is what he looks like from the back! :)

Blonde Baby Doll

I have been in such a crocheting frenzy lately! I am surprised by how each doll I make takes less and less time. There are so many crochet projects on my to do list. I wanted to make dolls to sell at the local artisan's market but didn't know if I'd have enough time. Thankfully, this little lady didn't take me very long:

I couldn't get a good picture of her hair, but it has little Gold sparkles in it. It is so super cute in person. I am planning on making a Brunette & Redhead doll as well. :)

Little Yellow Rain Boots

These past few days in Michigan have been rainy & dreary with only a little sunshine. Not typical for August, but when is the weather in Michigan ever typical? I was trying to think of something to make while my husband was golfing, my son was napping, and my daughter was watching yet *another* episode of Thundercats. (Don't ask.) I decided to make rain boots for babies!

 These were fun to make, and they work up pretty quickly which is always a plus. Picture these with a little rain coat and umbrella! How can you resist??

 You can find these adorable Little Yellow Rain Boots for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Baby Mary Janes

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I LOVE BABY SHOES! They are my favorite baby accessory. My favorite style for baby girls are Mary Janes. I love to make them because they work up quickly and people always comment on how adorable they are. I am hoping to make enough of these little shoes for the Artisan's market where I am hoping to sell my items.

Here is the latest style that I've made:

These shoes are made with soft and comfy Acrylic yarn. They have different colored soles and tops & have a cute little flower with two leaves attached. SO cute and SO fun! 

You can get your own pair of Baby Mary Janes from my Etsy Shop!
