Bunny girl in pretty dress

This adorable bunny girl was waiting in my craft basket with a missing ear for a while, finally I had time to finish her last night. She likes to stand and watch around with startled big eyes, and I love watching her too so I placed her just next to TV :)

Sackboy !!!

The first commenter on my blog was asking if I could make a Sackboy. And it was on my mind since then, try to make a Sackboy, I saw the little guy first my husband realised him on one of his gaming magazines and he showed me saying''look he looks like the things (!!!) you make. (He wasn't able to remember the word ''amigurumi'' at that times:) And I started looking for a pattern for Sackboy, but I wanted him to have a real zipper so that he can carry around some lil things like coins or keys for his human  friend. The only pattern I found with the zipper was on youtube but it was quite huge and I don't fancy very big gurumis. So as usual I ended up with making up my own pattern, and I am very happy about how he looks, I hope you like it too, I can post the pattern here if I manage to write it down.

So Sweet Snails!

I haven't posted for a while since I was quite busy crocheting a lot of projects at the same time, while finishing the spring wreath, and these snails; had to make a king's crown for my elder boy's school show (I will post some pictures soon ) and there is a white bunny in a sweet dress still missing one ear and the sweet dress! And there is a sackboy sitting on my laptop with a missing arm and leg! I realized that they might take longer time then I planned so decided to shoot some pictures of the finished ones, and here are the So Sweet Snails with the pattern of Marta from http://stokrotkidwie.blogspot.com/search/label/szyde%C5%82ko%2Fcrochet

Welcome spring!

Welcome spring! We have been waiting for you, it was a very cold winter even for our beautiful warm town Marmaris! Although I am a winter person, our house was so cold and we all got so much ill this year that, I am so glad that finally spring is here and brought along the warm days back! Hotels already filled in the pools and claimed it summer but I don't have any intentions to let the spring pass so quickly... So I made a wreath to celebrate your arrival Spring! It makes me happy everyday when I reach my door and soothes my ' not finding my keys in my deeep bags panic'. I hope you like it too...

Woot! I opened a shop!

I still can't believe myself, but I did it. Well my gurumis were getting slowly flooding out of the drawers and cupboards, and everyone was asking me what I was planning to do with them. I had no idea to be honest, I just love making them and I never thought about what to do with them afterwards, I love creating them, playing with them, and giving them as presents. But I am a fast crocheter and my space for the gurumis in my house is unfortunately limited. So I decided it is time to share them with other amigurumi lovers. I have no idea about online things, or selling things and quite nervous about if people will like my toys...I have to wait and see I guess.. Here is my shop banner my beloved sister-in-law Yonca made for my shop

And here is my shop link if you want to have a look; http://www.etsy.com/shop/ToyzandDollz?ref=si_shop

Amigurumi Ballerina Sue

Her name is Sue and she is made with my own pattern and lots of love. Next project should be making a best friend both to test the pattern and to give Sue some company for bale lessons! I like how she is able to pose, thanks to her loong limbs. Although my boys insisted that she sould have a mouth, I prefered the abstract look on her face. I hope you find her as adorable as I do..

amigurumi dinosaurs

To be honest I am more of a doll person, I have always been and I will always be.  Making dolls = makes me happy! Planning the doll, designing the hair and sewing the clothes is all so much fun there is so much place for creativity! But as a mother of two boys, I receive a list of boyish toy demands everyday:) One of these wishes came true recently, 2 dinosaurs to be taken to bed, to be thrown to each other, to be carried around after watching Dino Dan! Meet the newest members of our family life, Değişikrenk and Kaçboğazinek (Differentcolor and howmuchthroatcow!?  in Turkish) Wannabe 3 years old again or just to buy that imagination!
