Hot Air Balloon Crochet Pattern

As to welcome a new member of the house, I’ve been busy decorating the baby room. To color up the baby room and the very white plain baby crib, I’ve crocheted a {Kirika the pocket unicorn} (pattern by @amigurumei), a giraffe (I’ve modified a bit of the pattern of the unicorn to make this giraffe, so that they’re in the same style.) and a few hot air balloons in pastel tone colors. Then I used a string to hang them up to make them as the crib-side decoration.

If you just have limited time and you’re looking for ideas to decorate your room or a baby room, this hot air balloon is a good option for you! Not only because it is simple and quick to make, but you can also mix and match with different colors to harmonize your room theme.

You can find the pattern below for the air balloon:

Mulan Crochet Pattern

Probably last but certainly not least member of my Princess Gang (previous ones can be found here: Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, Jasmine), I chose someone a bit different from the rest. Unlike the other princesses who have a more traditional happily-ever-after story, Mulan’s tale is one of a tough life as a strong, brave and independent heroine who fought battles and protected her aging father. She didn’t have a fancy dress or expensive jewelry but her kind beautiful heart is the best accessory to make her shine out of the crowd.

As with all the others, she was a delight to work on and using the flipbook** below, those with basic crochet skills can easily follow along and make their own Mulan doll. The yarn I mainly used is la mia Cottony (you can find it on hobiumyarns.com) with a 2.5mm hook.

This likely wraps up my Princes Gang series, I hope you enjoyed following along and if you had the chance to follow the patterns I would love to see the finals results!

Jasmine Crochet Pattern

Continuing my Princess gang series (check out the Snow White, Cinderella & Ariel patterns in case you miss them), this time I thought it would be a good idea to create Jasmine with the new Aladdin movie coming out.

Thus far all the princesses I’ve crocheted have been wearing dresses, so it was interesting to create Jasmine’s trousers style outfit! And of course, I’ve made her jewelry to match with her gorgeous and glamorous appearance as well.

If you’re interested in making one for yourself, this pattern is easy to follow and suitable for crocheters who have basic crochet skills. You can find the full Jasmine crochet pattern below in flipbook format (remember to press the enlarge button at the top right)!

Ariel Crochet Pattern

In case you haven’t followed my previous post Cinderella Crochet Pattern, in the previous post I mentioned that I had decided to create a “Princess Gang” after my very first princess amigurumi, Snow White, so that she won’t be sitting alone on the shelf. For the newest member, I have decided to go with the princess of the sea, Ariel!! I know Ariel in most peoples’ minds have the mermaid look which has a shinny, flexible long tail, swimming freely in the ocean. But this time, I gave Ariel a pair of legs..and the best part is she didn’t even need to exchange her voice for it! 😉

Crochet of Sobble from Pokemon

Last month I was browsing around on internet, as usual, and noticed that Pokemon had just announced 3 new characters which are coming in their new game (Pokemon Sword and Shield) in 2019. Out of the three Pokemon starters that got revealed, the one that got my attention most is the water pokemon called Sobble. He’s actually a lizard, but way cuter than your normal lizard. His whole body is covered in blue and he has a yellow fin on the top of his head.

The cutest thing I like about him is he always looks so sad and worried (am I being apathetic here?! but he looks cute in that way). And recently, I had ordered a few skeins of different blue colors , so I rolled my sleeves, and got the idea to make a Sobble alive in my hands! The fact that there had not been any crafts made about him was a further motivation to try to be one of the first ones to bring him to life.

If you’re interested in making one for yourself, I’ve created a pattern which you can purchase here. It’s suitable for the crocheters who know the basic crochet skills and I’ve tried to make the instructions as clear and easy to follow as possible.

Cinderella Crochet Pattern

Last month, I’ve made one of my favorite princesses Snow White and I put this gorgeous in the middle of the shelf. A few days after, she seemed a bit lonely sitting there all by herself, I guessed maybe she needed some friends, so I decided to make a “Princess Gang”. After a month work, I’m happy to announce a new member {Cinderella} to join the gang . You can find the full Cinderella pattern below in flipbook format (Don’t forget to press the enlarge button on the top right) . If you have missed the last month Snow White pattern, click here to check it out!

Snow White Crochet Pattern

Based on a 19th century German fairy tale, and later popularized by Disney, Snow White has stood the test of time as one of the most iconic female characters in pop culture. She is personally my favorite among all Princesses and for that reason I was inspired to bring her to life with this crochet creation. I hope you enjoy following this pattern as much as I enjoyed making it. Here is the full pattern in flipbook format (don’t forget to press the enlarge button on the top right):
