Summer of Pokémon - Jigglypuff

 When I crocheted Bulbasaur I did not envision that I would be doing more. However, my little boy was already searching for the next pokémon for me to make.  It's hard for me to say no to that cute little face, but also when I get a happy customer it drives me to do more.  Not everyone is appreciative of homemade gifts, but he is so enamoured with them that I just want to make him more.  What I didn't anticipate was how big his next selection would be.   View this post on Instagram And now we have Jigglypuff joining Ash “Ketchup’s” crew. #kingdomofra #crochet #pokemon A post shared by Deedra Sukrungruang (@favoritelittleprincess) on May 17, 2020 at 7:19am PDT It's huge! Thank goodness I had a ton of pink yarn left over from another project. The pattern said it would be 6 inches tall, but this is clearly a lot bigger.  The pattern is available as a free download on Ravelry. It was pretty simple and clearly written.  I love the crocheted eyes, m

Summer of Pokémon - Bulbasaur

It hardly seemed like summer this year.  No trips to Thailand.  No swimming pools.  Even the weather was like, "eh, I don't feel like me this year."  I'm grateful for the mild temps, however, because we spent most of the summer outside.  Not being able to go or do things made our yard seem very appealing.  Being cooped up inside spurred my husband into planting every flower he could get his hands on.  I'm not kidding.   I should have been focusing on building my Etsy shop.  Instead, I put in on vacation and focused on keeping my 4-year-old occupied.  He suddenly became very interested in  Pokémon  and thus it became the summer of  Pokémon    So far, 14 of them have joined our household.   It started with Bulbasaur.   View this post on Instagram The boy demanded a bulbasaur. #crochet #pokemon #kingdomofra A post shared by Deedra Sukrungruang (@favoritelittleprincess) on May 9, 2020 at 10:32am PDT I found a pattern for this little guy on Rav

Pumpkin Spice

Can you believe it's August already?  I enjoyed my coffee on the deck this morning with a chilly 57 °F.   Don't get too jealous.  Ohio is going to warm back up into the high 80's next week.  This was just a little  preview of what is to come with Fall.  Of course, social media is picking up with Pumpkin Spice memes and Fall decorating.    Our 4-year-old is already trying to figure out what he wants to be for Halloween.  My hubby is busy prepping for his classes to begin, which means more student meetings via zoom.  I don't think I'm ready.  Maybe I can bring my pumpkins out and try to get in the groove. I have a plethora of crocheted and fabric pumpkins and they just make me happy.  I am looking forward to going to the pumpkin patch and seeing the fall foliage. Did you see my pumpkins in the shop?  It's my one of my favorite patterns from Yarn + Chai, Little Rustic Pumpkin .  It's so easy to dress these up with silk leaves, stems from tree branches, or even
