New patterns, new tutorials coming soon!

I've been working on a couple of new patterns! I'm very excited to get them out in the public! Some for purchase and some free. There are some that will have drawn stitch diagrams. I'll also be illustrating helpful diagrams and posting photo tutorials soon!

I'm doing a redesign of the strawberry pattern with some changes to reflect how my professional patterns will look and read. That should be available for free in pdf soon!

New Year!

It's 2011! This is my first post of the year. I have a lot planned for this year and so many changes are already happening! I'm working on new projects and hope to have something to share soon!

I'd like to post a picture of the super cute necklace my husband got me for x-mas! <3
Little Forest Bunny Necklace

Also, one of the last crochet things I made of 2010 was a cute little Korilakkuma pouch for my friend!

I compiled some art to represent each month in 2010, to recap some of the things I've made. I mostly wanted to focus on drawing but I didn't always have a drawing to show. I really hope to draw as much as possible again this year.

Crochet Lights

I wanted some sort of decoration and x-mas is this week. I thought since I'm sorta late, cute crochet lights would be fun to hang up for the rest of the winter!
I'm really happy how they turned out and it makes the fire place all cute and rainbow colored ^_^

Mori Girl 森ガール

Mori Girl means Forest Girl. It's a fashion from Japan that is pretty easy to find pieces here in the US to mix and match. It's not so strange as everyday wear to people who are unfamiliar with it. I love Lolita fashion but lately it's seemed a bit flashy for me to wear other than to meetups.

Mori Girl is supposed to look like a girl who stepped out of the forest. It's very frilly, girly, comfortable, not too over the top, and every bit is whimsical. There are lots of layers and nature inspired items.

Dec '10 Portland Mori Girl Meet (Hoyt Arboretum)

We had a really fun Mori Girl meet! Our first official Oregon Mori Girls meetup. Portland is the perfect setting for pictures. It was a lot of fun and I can't wait until the next one.
