New Items to share

Since I have been enjoying amigurumi crochet, I have alot of requests to make unique gifts. Just recently completed Batman but in the photo, the cape is not completed. Making from no available patterns, I have to trust alot on photos and help from my comic book collecting spouse. Thank goodness.

The request was for a 16 inch character. I did this project based on three +/- 5 inch segments of the whole body. After that, it was just doing the project.
I have to make a small Batgirl to complete the commissioned work. All in all, this has been a labour of love.

Cookie's pig, panda, and kitten
Lila's Panda
Lion and Lime Sherbet Kittens

There is a great easy purchased pattern from Sarah K. Walker in Ravelry . Look up the title, Wilbur, Bejing or Purrr . Here is the first Panda I made for a friend. I showed it to my mom and she had to have one and pig, too. I told her about the Valentine Sherbet Kitten Pattern and I made her a light golden tinsel kitty. At work a really good friend asked for a Lion type kitten and made a Lime Sherbet Kitten for a nite nurse who needed cheering up. She works hard and needed a smile on her face. It worked!
Enjoy the latest pics and will write soon! Valis

This is what I love to receive for Valentine's Day every sweet husband seems to find them and I go crazy adding to my collection.
 This is my Diego inspired doll that my friends love to give to their sons. The monkey is another one of my favorite softies to make for my friends. Gave one with magnet hands so as to hold his banana. This one is a popular item.I made so many. Soon I will make a pattern.

Made this monkey this weekend for a friend's nephew.

Bought this crochet pattern which is fast and easy.

This unique 3 mitten project was made for a new couple and it is called Smittens.

I thought the rush for for Christmas was extremely busy, but Valentine's Day beats it hands down for me. 
Made several Sherbet Kittens found in Ravelry for free. Everyone loves them.
Added glue to safety eyes for added security

This was given to a patient to lift his spirits.
One girl wanted hers as a lion...cute, huh?

Made these for my bosses for VD.

Another nurse made a request to make a look-alike for her husband in his gii along with the black belt and specified details.

HK golf club cover for a little girl.

One Doctor was given a crocheted kitten for his daughter's birthday and I was commissioned to make a golf club cover with Hello Kitty theme. That was a great project to make-it was a knit-crochet combination. 

 Here are the accumulated photos that I would like to share with you. Valis
