Sewing Together an Amigurumi

posted by Carolina Guzman June 1, 2018 1 Comment

As I’m sure you’ve probably guessed by now, I absolutely love designing amigurumis!  Creating colorful and imaginative new friends is a passion of mine. Coming up with a new idea, drawing it out, writing the pattern, crocheting the prototype, sewing it all together…from beginning to end, I love every step!!

Some of the most common questions I receive are about that final step in the process – sewing all of the pieces together.  And I will admit, sometimes it can be frustrating and very time-consuming. But it has to get done!

Adding a value to crocheted items is a topic that comes up frequently in my Facebook group.  Usually when people ask about the value of a crocheted item, they want to know what to charge someone for that item.  They want to make a profit – big or small – from their work. How you choose to charge for a crocheted item is up to you, but here are the top three ways to add value that I have found.

Tutu Cute – No-Sew Tutorial

posted by Carolina Guzman April 27, 2018 0 comments

Sometimes I think that my creations need a little something extra…like a fluffy tutu!! I thought of this especially for Poppy the Sweet Piggy.  She’s already so super enchanting with her rosy cheeks, flowers, and purse, but I really thought she needed something else. Something special. So I asked my friend Courtney of 3 Hoots Boutique to help me out with a quick tutorial for a simple, no-sew tutu.

Heart and Sole

If you’re like me, then you love creating fun and colorful slippers or booties for your little ones.  They’re just so much fun to make!!  I love that you can alter the personality of each pair by simply changing yarn color.

However, crocheted booties and slippers do have their limitations.  Sometimes they might not be squishy and supportive enough…or maybe they’re too slippery for non-carpeted floors.  I’ve found a few ways to help with these issues, along with my friends Shannon and Courtney.
