My Handmade Amigurumi

I'm addicted to Amigurumi!!!! AMIGURUMI is the Japanese art of crocheting small stuffs animals! I crocheted a whale without pattern couple months ago. My younger daughter loves it so much. When my older daughter asked me to make her one, I couldn't do it again for I didn't write down the pattern! Indeed, I'm not too good at crocheting. I'd better follow patterns!

As I mentioned in my last blog, I bought an amigurumi pattern from When you scroll down the pictures, you'll see a little cute piggy. Her name is Jacinta!

After making Jacinta, I can't stop making more amigurumi! Therefore, I've made a little bunny, her mommy, her friend which is a little bear! It's so much fun!

Oh! Don't forget to get plastic safety eyes from Clara, my best friend! Those plastic safety eyes are so easy to assemble. I use 9mm black eyes for all these animals! good size!

Recommended in an Israelite Craft Forum...Weee!!!

About a week ago, I sold few items of cover buttons to a customer who lives in Israel. I got a feedback from her who said it's amazing to receive the package in 6 days! I was happy to know that the package delivered to her hand fast and safely cuz this was my first shipment to Israel!

About a day or two later, I had 3 orders from Israel!!!! I didn't think it's coincident or something. My instant told me that it's related to the first Israelite customer! Then I emailed her and asked if she recommended me to her friends. I was so thrilled to get the answer from her. She remmended me to a local craft forum in Israel! Wow! The "word of mouth" is amazing! It's better than advertizing in many different blogs and sites! Thank to her! Today, I've had another 2 orders from Israel again! Weeeee.....!

How to make Ear Wire Earrings?

Do you want to make your own designed earrings? Don't think that it's difficult and let it stop your creativity. Here is a tuturial demonstration of making ear wires (French hook earrings). It's easy and so much fun!

First of all, you need the tools (round nose pliers, a side cutter & needle-nose pliers-sorry, the needle nose pliers is not showed in this picture), beads (I have 5mm, 3mm & glass beads) and earring findings (2 head pins, 2 eye pins & 2 French hooks) . In this demonstration, I will make earrings with 2 sections each. This picture shows the layout and order of the design.
Check out my shop for fench hook earring findings.

We'll work on the bottom section first. Arrange beads onto the head pin following the design of the above picture. Then use a pair of needle-nose pliers (here you go!) to bend it over to make a 90 degree angle.

Then cut off excess head pin with the side cutter. Leave approximately 1/4 inch.

Grab the end of the head pin with a pair of round nose pliers and make a loop. But don't close the loop yet because we need to put the eye pin into it to make the top section of the earring.

Now, put the eye pin into the loop. Then use the round nose pliers to make a closed loop.

Again, arrange the beads onto the eye pin following the designed on the first picture.

Then cut off the excess eye pin leaving approximately 1/4 inch. Use the round-nose pliers to make a loop. Before you close the loop, remember to put the french hook into the loop.

A beautiful ear wire is finished. Follow the above instruction to make the second piece.
