August is already there and I feel like I haven’t been as productive as I wanted to be during July (except in crocheting) but I’ve been feeling really happy and blessed lately! A lot of good things happened and I hope this lasts :)
My latest work is a plushie of that cute fluffy youkai in the anime Fukigen na Mononokean (you can watch it on Crunchyroll). I saw they made official ones of it but they lacked fluffiness in my opinion so I went out of my way to make one myself… pretty silly but I really wanted one!
The eyes are bigger and the look probably meaner than what the real thing but well, IT’S FLUFFY /kicked. I used Phildar’s Nounours yarn and knitting needles size 5 to make this (impossible to crochet with this kind of yarn, you can’t see anything). The eyes were made with felt. This is also my very first time making something without using someone else’s pattern.
Now moving onto my next project, the other day I remembered seeing those mermaid blankets on Facebook a few months ago and looked them up again to find this awesome pattern by Yarnutopia! It might be quite ambitious but a bit of challenge doesn’t hurt, right? This blanket is amazing, look at how the scales are visible ♥
I’ve always secretly dreamed of being a mermaid too.
I’m looking at yarns right now, it’s really hard to choose colors! I might want something red or brown maybe??
Also, I got those Capcom washi tape sets I ordered on Ami Ami in the mail recently! I still haven’t opened them since I haven’t been taking a good care of my Hobonichi lately but my future entries are going to be the coolest with those hihi
