Bea, a bear, a crochet bear by kittyvane
Bea, a bear, a crochet bear
Hi, my name is Eerika and I'm addicted to crochet.
This is Bea, she's a product of that addiction.

I made Bea using the same pattern I made for Elly the elephant, and learned how to do invisible decreases and also managed to make my stitches a little bit neater. I'm officially addicted to crochet, and I'm already planning my next ami-pal. :D

Bea is made with aran weight wool mix yarn and she has plastic safety eyes. She's filled with cotton batting and she has plastic pellets in her belly to give her a nice weight and a fun, squishy feel.

Elly the crochet elephant
Elly is the third thing I've ever crocheted, and it took me nearly three weeks to make her, since I was making it all up as I went along working without a pattern. It took a lot of crocheting, frogging, more crocheting and even more frogging to get her done, but I'm super proud of the end result!
I will make Elly's pattern available once I've had it tested by a few friends first, since I'm not sure if I know what I'm doing when it comes to this stuff. :D
Crochet bear by kittyvane
Crochet bear
This little crochet bear is the second thing I've ever crocheted. I used a pattern I found on Craftsy, and now I'm totally hooked on crochet! :D
Martina the little polar rag-bear by kittyvane
Martina the little polar rag-bear
(Uploading some older pieces for posterity's sake.)

This is Martina the little polar rag-bear. I made her for International Polar Bear Day (which was the 27th of February).

Martina is made from lovely soft light blue wool, and she's stuffed with rags and a bit of polyfill. She has little button eyes, an embroidered nose and pretty, blushy cheeks. She's a little Rag Pet, meaning she's a little smaller than the regular Rag Pets, at about 35 cm from the top of her head to the tips of her toes.
Martina is wearing a turquoise corduroy skirt with cotton pockets and an elasticated waist. Her scarf is knitted from snow white wool and she's wearing a little corduroy hat with a woolly pom-pom on it around her ear.
Val the little rag-cat by kittyvane
Val the little rag-cat
(Posting some older pieces for posterity's sake.)

Val the little Valentine's Day rag-cat is made out of linen, and stuffed with rags and a bit of polyfill. She has tiny little buttons for eyes, and embroidered nose and pretty, blushy cheeks. She has a beige plastic button for a bellybutton. Val is shorter than regular Rag Pets, at just about 35 cm from her toes to the top of her head.
Val is wearing a patchwork cotton skirt with an elasticated waist, a dusky pink silk bow around her neck and a little heart-shaped earpiece with a shiny red button on her ear.

It's been a while, hasn't it!

Journal Header

Whoa, I just noticed that I haven't updated my journal here since the year changed!

I haven't really visited DA in ages, I've popped by to cull my messages now and then, but I haven't really had the inclination to spend much time puttering about here like I used to in the past. I do miss this place, and the people here (or those who are still here and not long gone to different venues) though, and I guess allocating a bit more of my online time to DA would be nice.

In the past very-nearly-half-a-year, I've been to Japan, and well... to be honest, that's really the most notable thing to have happened, as other than my amazing, wonderful, brilliant and amazing Japan trip, life has been rolling forward pretty much the same as it ever has, really. There have been other bits worth a mention I guess, but they all pale in comparison to how monumental going to Japan was for me and so I just haven't bothered.

Umh, I think the main point of writing this post is just to have something a bit fresher at the top of my journal, and to let you all know that I'm still around, even if it might not seem so. :)

is a toy making elf
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts

My name is Eerika and I'm a toy making elf. I also draw and sleep a lot.
I live in an impractically practical apartment in the city that sleeps at night, and I am older than I look.
I like cats and chocolate and sunny days and the smell of old books and freshly cut grass and a lot of other things as well.

Nice to meet you all, and thank you for popping by my DApage.
