LGBT Keyring – Ready for Pride!

Today I booked my train tickets for Brighton Pride! I’m really excited, but as I’m not flamboyant or brave enough to dress bold or colourful, I thought I’d settle for something smaller.

I used a smaller hook than normal and played around a little with the pattern. Miss Pride could act as a keyring, but I like her as a handbag accessory. 

  
Today I’ve ordered some keychains so I will soon be able to make good quality keyrings. At the moment I’ve used this chain from a handbag, so future creations will have better quality ones. 

The wool is so soft and light, I love it! The colours are amazing too, I finished this rather late and so took a photo as soon as I could. In the light she is so much more impressive! 

Will attach this to my handbag tomorrow and see how it looks! It’s small, but I hope it gets noticed at Pride. She’s too cute not to!

LGBT Superhero Amigurumi

  
Pride is an important event, because it’s about standing up for your identity and celebrating that with the world and the rest of your community. That’s why I like superheroes, because they are fearless and strong, they stand up for what they believe in and embrace their identity.

So, because of that, I have made LGBT superheroes. They’re very colourful and cute, and I loved making them! 

Introducing more members to the gang…

  
Bisexual, LGBT, Pansexual and Asexual. I love them all together! And if anyone on Etsy has a request then of course I will add other sexualities to the group. 

Each superhero comes with a mask, boots, undergarments and gloves. My favourite part is their red cape that hides in the back!

   
 
I’m really proud of these little guys and hope you like them too. Please tell me what you think!

Daschund Amigurumi!

Im really happy with my pattern to make a daschund, and I love dogs in general so I’m hoping to make a lot more. The dog is quite small, easy enough to fit on your desk and not be a bother.

Short story behind making this: I am obsessed with sausage dogs, but not allowed one. So… I made my own!

   
My first time using a plastic nose, and I’m very impressed! Will certainly be buying more in the future.

 

My favourite part is his body and the way it increases in size. Maybe in future I would make the body longer, but right now I think it works well and is proportional with the head. 

   
 
Available on Etsy. Before I add more members to his gang I’ve been requested to make a bigger Daschund. I’m not sure how to make them bigger following this pattern, do I double everything? So I’ll either edit this pattern or start from scratch. 

Lastly, I love seeing my work in searches, especially near the top! 

  

Superhero Amigurumi!

When I first started making amigurumi I wanted to reflect who I was in the creations I made. I love the superhero pattern because superheroes are strong, courageous and want to make the world a better place. I couldn’t think of a better person/animal to place the Pride flags on.. (Although cats would have been good!)

  
My space to create! Well… Amigurumi is a fairly flexible craft, so I tend to watch shows in my bed or on the couch… But I like having a craft table regardless.

  
I love the little boots! And I love working from the feet up to the body rather than vice versa. 

  
 Changing colours is fun 🙂 My favourite part is the body, different colours for different flags. And the finishing piece looks a little like…

   
 
Little Pride Superhero! Cute little ears, mask and Cape. I loved making him and know that he’s ready to dance and take on the world, fighting crime and spreading love.

I have (and am currently working on) different flags, such as bisexual, pan sexual and asexual. I love seeing them all together as a family! Future post on that coming soon!
