Amigurumi Handphone/Bag Charms

animal-amigurumi-handphone-charms1
Hello, everyone! As promised, my full set of Amigurumi Handphone/Bag Charms are now available online in my Etsy shop!

I’ve to admit it was really a love hate process when I was making them as you can see there are many details involved and at the same time I had to rush for the flea market’s deadline. But looking at them now, I’m really proud and love how they’ve turned out. ♥ And I’ll be setting up my long overdue instagram account soon. So these will definitely make great models for #amiselfies!

Adopt one of these cuties and bring it wherever you go on your bag or handphone! Show it off in your instagrams! 🙂 I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Until then, have a great day! xo!

Nursery Mini Organization Baskets – Free Pattern

NurseryMiniBaskets1

With little kids or babies at home, great organization skills can go a long way! In fact I started making these cute mini baskets for my nephew to keep his little crayons in and he loves them! They are perfect for the kids to store their little knick knacks and at the same time a great way to entice them to keep their things away! As for babies, these would be wonderful for the baby changing table where you can keep all of those newborn necessities organized!

It’s definitely an adorable and affordable way to keep things organized in the nursery/kids room. They’d also make perfect baby shower gifts! So why not try making them for your little loved ones?

Do you prefer these cute baskets made for you? Feel free to check out my store here.♥

Alright, here we go. Here is the pattern. Have fun crocheting!

To make things easier, I’m using coloured felt for the facial features instead of crocheting the pieces. So you can just cut out the shapes and glue them on! 🙂

Instead of sewing, you can glue the ears to the baskets.
Weave in loose ends as work progresses.
