Baby Vulpix Amigurumi Pattern



I originally made this baby vulpix about 4 or 5 years ago. I offered the pattern notes on Craftster but took them down shortly after. I can't really remember why exactly but it was probably due to the lack of step by step photos.

I decided to republish this pattern here because I've been getting more and more requests to put it back up. (Pokemon Go!!?) I'd like to crochet another one soon (but with safety eyes!) so I can improve the pattern's clarity.

    Etsy Shop Feature: Ornately Lanterns

    As I was searching on Etsy for cute stuff for the garden, I found Ornately Lanterns and fell in love with this cat suncatcher glass block! The colors are so beautiful!! I love designs with cats with moons & stars, pretty sure it's due to my obsession with Sailor Moon. ;)


    Clare handpaints lanterns, glass blocks, mason jars, and more! Here are a few more of my favorites, very very difficult just choosing a few.


    The little cat lantern version. It's so pretty with a candle!

    Isn't this one awesome? She originally designed it for an Indian craft fair. I love the rich colors in this one.


    And the last one I'm sharing... The Rainbow Farm Painted Glass Block is so cheery & adorable. I love all the little details in the valley and the vivid rainbow!

    Etsy Shop Feature: Eten Iren

    I might be a little obsessed with succulents. I've been trying to propagate some and it hasn't really gone well so far. Now I'm just playing the waiting game to see if any more will start to rot. Until then, I figured I'd check out some cute succulent stuff on Etsy.

    When I saw the thumbnails of the succulent jewelry from the Eten Iren shop, I thought they were real so I had to click to confirm! But nooo, they're made out of polymer clay... which is great for people with black thumbs like me!

    This shop is full of succulent and floral themed jewelry, hair accessories, and more.


     I really love the colors on this one!


    These are adorable -- looks almost flower petal-y.


    Another great color combination! Looks almost exactly like one of my succulents.


    I really like the idea of having a succulent ring because I can look at it all day. I'd love to have an anacampseros version!!

    Now here's some of my favorite flowery ones, mostly pansies. I did start to like the color yellow more because it makes my brain all 'sunny' though.










    Which ones are your favorite? Do you prefer other kind of succulents, flowers, or other plants? Tell me about them! There are a lot of flowers and plants that I like but I have no idea what they're called.

    Watercolor Logos

    I created these logos for a client that wanted a watercolor design such as flowers or a sun with a swirly font. I painted the watercolor by hand, scanned them, and made some adjustments in Photoshop.

    When creating mockups, I like to stick to 1 or 2 ideas and modifying them a bit to show slightly different versions in design, colors, placement, or fonts. That way, they don't get overwhelmed by too many choices.

    I try to combine all my ideal elements in just one logo. I'll add other possible options in the other version(s) so they can pick and choose what they like best from each one. However, usually the clients choose my favorite one with no modifications!

    Questions:
    Which one of these logos do you prefer and why?

    Do you like hand-drawn or modern classic style logos for handmade businesses and creative bloggers?
