Wow it has been a crazy couple of months. I have a few patterns written down. One for a small Teddy Bear, another for a larger Hello Kitty and one last pattern for a smaller Liver Spot Lloyd. I’m planning on selling the smaller Liver Spot Lloyd in my Etsy shop in assorted colors, so I wasn’t planning on posting the pattern, since this little guy looks nearly identical to the original, only smaller.
Please comment or email me if you guys DO want the smaller Lloyd Pattern. Same goes for Hello Kitty.
Speaking of email, I changed my primary email to firstname.lastname@example.org just because Yahoo has been extremely unreliable in recent months
Okay guys, well I’ll be on vacation in Mid-May. Aaron and I are planning on getting married at this time, so hopefully I am not too busy to come up with some new patterns. I know I really need some new content up here.
Please email me or comment with any questions, and especially if you have any requested patterns!
Thanks guys for all the support, the next time I post anything on here, my last name will be Lopez! which is both sad and exciting.
I don’t think I quite realized how many people were visiting my blog and using my patterns.
I have not made a new pattern for the site that I was happy with in about 4 months now, but I plan to start coming up with some new stuff SOON.
I didn’t think I would be so busy working and going to school, but it’s harder to time manage than I thought.
Anyway, thanks to all of you who emailed me asking for new patterns. It still amazes me that you all visit my site and use my patterns. And thanks to all of you other avid crocheters out there, I love our Crocheting community, and you guys keep me going!
I’ll keep the patterns coming!
I’ve moved my site on over to WordPress, which gives me way more freedom than the previous hosting I had.
Now I can actually say I have a full fledged website. Now that all that business is over, I am ready to start posting
my patterns again. I have 3 planned to post in the next week or two, so woo hoo, I’m back!!
This is an Amigurumi Mario I made for my big brother. The pattern can be found here:
All the patterns on Wolfdreamer’s blog are great.
I had to make a few adjustments on the size of the hat and head, but other than that, it was the most flawless pattern I’ve ever used.

I know, I know,
I seem to have fallen off the face of the Earth.
But no, I’m still here. I have more videos and Guides to post, which I will get on tomorrow.
The reason It’s been so long is because I made a surprise trip to see my mom in Good old El Paso. I showed up the day before her birthday and surprised the crap out of her. Needless to say I had fun relaxing and seeing the most important people in the world, but now it is time to get back on track.
While I was home I visited my Grandma, Nana (Tia Irma) and my Tia Mary. La Mary taught me how to make a two layered blanket, so I’ve been working on it ever since. It is time consuming, but so worth it.
Here are some pics of the Two layered Blanket:
The more I look for Crocheted Bag patterns, the harder it seems to find attractive ones. I always tell myself “Trish, don’t worry, you’ll find a good one some day”
Well folks, that day was today.
I found my diamond in the rough, and no, its name is not Aladdin.
Of course I found it right under my nose, on one of my go-to websites for basic crochet patterns. Check it out:
I can only hope I will succeed on this project. Hands don’t fail me now.
Oh yes, I also want to document the making of my sister’s blanket. Which I ran out of yarn for. The bus schedules make it hard to get to a good Monopolizing Wal-Mart Super Center.
So Aaron and I stayed up pretty late tonight creating my very first Crocheting tutorials. They aren’t the best quality, but I am a little proud, considering what we had to work with.
I’m going to come up with a few things I’d like to add to them, and then I’ll embed them in individual posts, that way I can get as much info into them as possible, and hopefully make crocheting easier for those who are just beginning.
I was remembering how hard it initially was for me to teach myself how to crochet. The real reason I wanted to learn was because I grew tired of making dolls out of sheets of felt, and my sister in law (who is from Japan) had crocheted an Amigurumi bear. She told me it was a common thing that women in Japan do, and that it was easier than it looked. After that day, I was determined to learn to crochet.
But of course, first I had to learn the basics, and I had a hard time finding everything I needed in one place, so I’m hoping to cover most of the basics that helped me, here on my own blog, so that others don’t have to struggle as much as I did.
Now, I’m not claiming to be an expert. I am far from an expert, but I do know some things that I would like to share with others who are trying out crochet.
And check it out!! I learned the art of Amigurumi. This Black Cat was my first completed project, and although my boyfriend mistook the brown triangle NOSE for a little MOUTH, I am satisfied with the look of it. Weird is in, y’know.
