Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

Amigumi Mom and Dad dolls

I crocheted these mini me dolls for my Mom and Dad, for their respective birthdays (Dad in October, Mom 2 days ago).

 The dolls are very cute, and pretty big, standing at 18 inches tall.  They both have removable sweaters, and Dad has a removable baseball cap.  Mom has a tea towel, lol.

 I also found an eraser shaped like a wrench that is perfect for the Dad doll.

 I gave the Mom doll a little coffee cup, made from the lid of a hairspray bottle and some wire.
Mom also has a necklace and earrings, made from metallic thread. Her jeans have cuffs, and embroidered side pockets on the front. I gave her one embroidered back pocket as well  I tried embroidering seams down the side of her jeans, but I didn't like the way it looked so I took them out.

Both dolls have embroidered faces and safety eyes.  Mom has a wig, and I embroidered Dad's hair.
Mom's shoes are flats, but Dad's wearing sneakers with laces, lol.  Dad's top is not tucked in, but Mom's is.

I followed the pattern from the book AmiguruME .  Click on the link to check out the wonderful book, by Allison Hoffman.
