Buy 3 Get 1 Free Pattern Sale!

Today through December 25th, buy any 3 crochet patterns in my Ravelry shop, get 1 free! ANY pattern of your choice! Good for getting started on those hand-made holiday gifts. Or possibly for giving to someone who crochets and saying, “Here. I got you a pattern. Make this for me!” I know I wouldn't say no to a free pattern as a Christmas present. Just print it in color and put it in a nice plastic sleeve. ;)

Use the code: “HolidayBundle”

In other news, I'm currently working on making Spry, from Skylanders, a commission. I guess he's like a mini version of the Skylanders Spyro? A baby? Whatever he is, he's a lot cuter than Skylander's Spyro (yet still not as nice of a design as original Spyro) but I'm really enjoying making him. He has nice large feet.

I'm nearly finished with the Lion/Manticore pattern and I should have that up in a few days.

Also, off topic, but I saw the film version of CATS the musical on TV the other day. CATS was MY FAVORITE THING when I was around 6 years old. I watched that film to death and I listened to that soundtrack constantly. We even went to New York City when I was in first grade so we could go see the show before they took it off Broadway. So I'm having some hardcore feels about dancing, singing cats. Thanks, Andrew Lloyd Weber.

Fluffy Manticore Amigurumi by bandotaku
Fluffy Manticore Amigurumi
Someone on Ravelry showed me a picture o this "fluffy manticore" from a video game (maybe an online game? Not sure) and she wanted a pattern. Well the design was just too cute to refuse, so here he is! It's hard to see his scorpion tail and wings from the front because of his fluffy rock-star mane. It's also hard to see from the side view. :[

I hope to make a pattern soon for a lion/manticore. Would anyone actually be interested in such a pattern?

Also, now I have this manticore with rock-star hair chilling on my coffee table. Please message me if you're interested in purchasing him!

See him as a lion here!

Fluffy Lion Amigurumi by bandotaku
Fluffy Lion Amigurumi
Someone on Ravelry showed me a picture o this "fluffy manticore" from a video game (maybe an online game? Not sure) and she wanted a pattern. Well the design was just too cute to refuse, so I went ahead and made this little lion before adding the manticore parts! The tail was sewn in, but not tied off, so I just removed the lion tail after I was done taking photos and attached his cool scorpion tail, wings, and fangs afterwards.

Pattern for a lion/manticore (both options!) will hopefully be coming soon. It's so hard to keep a hobby AND go to college.

See him with his manticore features here!

Hi everyone! 

School is kicking my booty right now. And next semester I begin student teaching full-time, meaning that my free-time to spend crocheting is nearly nonexistent... I try to make time when I can, because it's just something that I enjoy so much; I have to make time for it to destress myself, but commissions and new patterns will be few and far between. 

But let me share my current project ideas floating around! Right now I'm finishing up a cute manticore plush someone suggested to me online. The design is so cute, but I have no idea if I'll have time to make a pattern for it. Can't wait to post photos, though! 

What I'd really like to create a pattern for is my Cynder dragon design. I've had plenty of people asking for it, and I just never typed up an official pattern. So to do that, I'd have to make yet another Cynder and make a thorough pattern for her, but I know it would be worth my time since she seems to be so popular.

I've also fallen victim to the current Tumblr sensation, the animated Mystery Skulls "Ghost" music video. If you don't know what that is, Youtube "Mystery Skulls Ghost." It's pretty rad. I kind of want to make a Lewis plush. But...time...it's a personal struggle, haha. 

I really wanted to make a Skiddo for a pokemon plush contest, but didn't get around to it. :/

Hope everyone is doing well. Let me know if you're working on any cool projects in-between work and/or school! Or just simply being an awesome crafter! 
Woah, a box to type things! Neat! ...What is this for?

Hey there! Thanks for visiting my deviantArt page. I suppose that means you're somewhat interested in my silly doodles or crochetted nonsense. Feel free to comment on any of my works or just say hello. Who doesn't love comments?

I'm currently a college student, majoring in things not art-related. My art is just a hobby, though I'm flattered that people suggest things greater.

I kind of take commissions randomly, but I always seem to have some pre-made plushes in my shop, so please check them out! If there's something you really want and are willing to pay for, just message me! I may not always have time, but there's no harm in asking. :)

Thanks for visiting!
