Uus amigurumi mustrite raamat seeriast Zoomigurumi on jälle ilmunud. Seda raamatut koostab ja annab välja Amigurumi patterns.net ning see raamat on juba kuues sellest seeriast. Ma olen väga uhke, et mul oli samuti seekord võimalus osaleda selles projektis oma väikse pandakaru Bo heegeldamise juhendiga. Raamat näeb suurepärane välja ja ma ootan juba kärsitult, millal paperkoopia kohale jõuab ning ma seda sirvida saan. Raamatu eelmüük soodushinnaga kestab veel ainult kuni 25. veebruarini, nii et kiirustage, kallid amigurumisõbrad. Lisaks paberraamatule saab kaasa ka PDF versiooni ning ülemaailmne saatekulu on samuti hinna sees.


Bo is a sweet little baby panda. He is always the last to reach the top of the tallest trees or to arrive at the bamboo forest where the yummy food grows. But one day he will grow up to be as big and strong as his brothers, and then he’ll surely be the one on top.

The panda was born already a year ago. One weekend I just felt like making a panda and it turned out really cute. Until now I had shared the picture of the panda only on Instragram and I was really surprised how popular it became. It has been my most liked photo in Instragram since. Therefore I agreed instatnly to make a pattern for it when Amigurumi Patterns.net contacted me and offered to participate in the next Zoomigurumi project.

Bo on väike armas panda. Ta on alati viimane, kes jõuab kõige kõrgemate puude otsa või pambuse metsa, kus kasvab maitsev toit. Ühel päeval aga kasvab ta sama suureks ja tugevaks nagu tema vennad ja siis ta on kindlasti kõige kiirem ja osavam.

See panda sündis tegelikult juba aasta tagasi. Ühel nädalavahetusel oli lihtsalt panda heegeldamise isu ja ta kukkus kuidagi nii armsake välja. Senimaani olin panda pilti jaganud ainult Instragramis ja ma olin väga üllatunud, et see seal nii populaarseks sai. Senimaani on see olnud ka minu Instagrami kõige rohkem südameid saanud pilt. Sellepärast ma ei kõhelnud hetkekski, kui Amigurumi Patterns.net tegi mulle ettepaneku osaleda järgmises Zoomigurumi projektis. 

Meet all the other 14 characters as well that you can find in addition to Bo the Panda in the Zoomigurumi 6 book. They are all adorable and I am sure you want to crochet them all.

Anita the cow by Airali Design, Carlos the Hummingbird by YOUnique Crafts, Manu & Brigitte the Duchshunds by Little Aqua Girl, Mortimer the Mammoth by Patchwork Moose, Oswald the Owl by Moji-Moji design, Txerri the Piglet by Critterbeans, Bernard the Bear by Elfin Thread, Shawn the Shark by Theresa’s Crochet Shop, Rudy the Red Panda by Little Muggles, Woo Ri the Lion by AnJiyoun, Cedric the Sloth by Irene Strange, Alvin the Hedgehog by Pepika, Kimi the Cat by Woolytoons, Anna the Swan and her baby Peter by Pica Pau.

*** 

Viimasel pildil leiab ka 14 teist tegelast, keda peale pandakaru Bo Zoomigurumi 6 raamatust leida võib. Nad kõik on vahvad tegelased ja ma olen kindel, et tõeline amigurumisõber tahab nad kõik omale heegeldada.

New pattern - Bubbly the Baby Seal

4 Comments
After a snowless December we were able to enjoy a truly beautiful winter in January. My children were ecstatic - my older daughter was able to try skiing for the first time and it was really difficult to get the kids to come inside. Although shoveling the snow twice a day was really annoying, I hate the rainy days that February has brought to us. The snowy weather finally inspired me to publish a new pattern - Bubbly the Baby Seal. I first came up with the amigurumi baby harp seal about a year ago when my nephew needed a gift for his best friend. I was asked to make a pattern for an amigurumi publication already months ago (hopefully I will be able to show it to you soon) but finally I finished a pattern version in English for sale as well. You can find Bubbly the Baby Seal pattern in my pattern stores on Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy.

***

Peale lumetut detsembrit oli meil võimalus jaanuaris nautida tõelist talve. Minu lapsed olid lumest vaimustuses - vanem tütar sai esimest korda suusatamist proovida ja väga raske oli lapsi õuest tuppa saada. Kuigi kaks korda päevas lund lükata oli tõeliselt tüütu, ei kannata ma kohe üldse seda vihma, mis veebruariga koos saabus. Lumine ilm inspireeris mind välja andma ka uut - hülgepoeg Bubbly - heegeldamise juhendit. Esimest korda tegin selle amigurumi hülgepoja umbes aasta tagasi, kui minu õepojal oli tarvis kingitust oma parimale sõbrale. Juba mitu kuud tagasi paluti minult teha hülge kohta juhend ühele amigurumi väljaandele (loodetavasti saan seda ka üsna pea teile näidata), kuid lõpuks sain valmis ka müügivalmis inglisekeelse heegeldamise juhendi oma enda poodide jaoks. Hülgepoeg Bubbly mustri leiate siit: EtsyRavelry ja Craftsy

The baby seal is about 27 cm long (10.6 inches), crocheted with worsted weight yarn and 3.5 mm crochet hook. But you can adjust the yarn weight, hook size and eyes to your own preference. The pattern is for advanced beginner level and written in US crocheting terms. The pdf file includes clear and detailed step-by-step instructions, useful tips and tricks and lots of pictures of the whole process. I hope you enjoy it and do not forget to share pictures with me on Facebook or Instagram (tag me @smartapplecreations). 

***

Hülgepoeg on 27 cm pikk, heegeldatud lõngaga DROPS Paris (100% puuvill) ja 3.5 mm heegelnõelaga. Juhend on sobilik juba väikese kogemusega algajale amigurumisõbrale ja on kirjutatud Ameerika heegeldamise termineid kasutades. Juhendis on põhjalikud samm-sammulised juhised ja palju pilte kogu protsessist. Loodan, et see teile meeldib ja jagage minuga ikka pilte ka Facebooki või Instagrami (@smartapplecreations) kaudu!

Use a different size hook and finer yarn to make a smaller toy
Have a nice winter!
Rõõmsat talve jätku!

Maya the Bee

7 Comments

I wish you a successful and creative year! I know that most of January is already over and I am hopelessly late with my wishes but better late than never. Right? I hope that I find this year a little more time to crochet, to write in my blog and also to publish some new amigurumi patterns (one pattern will be available very soon in my pattern stores. Keep your eyes open!). Today I will show you a project that kept me busy last week.

*** 

Soovin teile edukat ja loomingulist aastat! Tean küll, et suurem osa jaanuarist on juba läbi ja olen oma soovidega lootusetult hiljaks jäänud, kuid parem hilja kui mitte kunagi, eks! Ma loodan, et leian ka ise sel aastal rohkem aega, et heegeldada, postitada blogisse ning ka uusi mustreid kirjutada (kusjuures üks uus muster on üsna varsti minu juhendipoodides ka saadaval. Kui huvi, siis hoidke silmad lahti). Täna näitan projekti, mis hoidis mind rakkes eelmisel nädalal.


Maya the Bee is a character of a German book written by Waldemar Bonsels. Maya's adventures were animated in the 70s and newly produced into a TV-series in 2012. The cute bee and her friends are quite popular among Estonian kids, too. My version of amigurumi Maya the Bee is based on the character created by Studio 100 Animation. I made it as a custom order for a baby girl who loves Maya. I was asked to make a little version of the toy so the tiny hands could easily grab it. 

***

Mesilane Maia on saksa kirjaniku Waldemar Bonselsi loodud raamatutegelane. Maia seiklustest on tehtud ka populaarne multifilm 1970ndatel aastatel ning uus TV-sarja versioon 2012. aastal. See armas mesilane ja tema sõbrad on kindlasti populaarsed ka Eesti laste hulgas, kuna sari on jooksnud ka ETV-s. Minu versioon amigurumi Mesilane Maiast põhinebki praegu populaarsel multikakangelasel. See oli eritellimus ühe beebi jaoks, kes väga Maiat armastab. Mul paluti teha sellest väike versioon, mida pisikestel kätel lihtne haarata oleks.  

I searched the internet for a crochet pattern for amigurumi Maya the Bee. I thought that maybe I can take the easy way out this time but could not find a perfect one. I had to come up with the pattern myself again (not that I am complaining...). Inspiration how to make Maya's hair came from the blog of amigurumiBB who has a great Maya and Willy (Maya's best friend) pattern available for free. Crocheting and attaching the hair was a fiddly job indeed but the result is definately worth it. I used 100% mercerized cotton yarn and a 2.25 mm crochet hook. The little Maya is 18 cm tall. I placed also a little rattle inside Maya's head to attract the baby's attention. 

***

Otsisin internetist juba valmis amigurumi juhendit Maia heegeldamiseks. Mõtlesin, et äkki saan seekord lihtsamalt läbi, aga ei suutnud ühtegi sobivat leida. Tuligi siis jälle ise välja mõtlema hakata (mitte, et ma nuriseks...). Maia juuste tegemiseks ammutasin inspiratsiooni amigurumiBB blogist, kus on saadaval ka tore Maia ja tema sõbra Willy tasuta inglisekeelne heegeldamise juhend. Juuste heegeldamine ja kinnitamine oli üks aeganõudev nokitsemine, aga tulemus oli kindlasti vaeva väärt. Kasutasin Maia heegeldamiseks 100% merseriseeritud puuvillast lõnga ja 2.25 mm heegelnõela. Väike Maia on 18 cm pikkune. Mesilase pea sees on peidus ka väike kõrin, et beebi tähelepanu äratada. 


Thank you for visiting and have a good day!
Aitäh, et külastasid ja head päeva jätku!

Tsirkusepõrsas Hubert ja orangutanibeebi Bella võtavad osa kõige armsama ja vahvama tsirkuseartisti valimistest tänavusel amigurumi disainide konkursil, mida korraldab amigurumipatterns.net. See on juba kolmas selline võistlus ja sellel aastal on teemaks tsirkus. Minul on teine kord sellisest võistlusest osa võtta. Mul oli väga lõbus neid tegelasi heegeldada ja sellisel võistlusel osalemine on hea moodus oma töid laiemale vaatajaskonnale tutvustada. Erinevaid vahvaid võistlustöid on kokku 235. Oleksin väga tänulik, kui võtaksite väikse hetke, et minu võistlejate poolt hääletada! Hääletamine lõpeb 9. detsembril 2015.a. Selleks on vaja teha siis järgmist:
1. Mine hääletamise lehele (inglisekeelne) SIIN.
2. Vali 5 oma lemmiktegelast klikkides punasel südamel pildi nurgas 
3. Kui täpselt 5 on valitud, siis tuleb ette aken, kuhu tuleb sisestada oma nimi ja e-maili aadress ning seejärel oma hääl ära saata.


I would now like to introduce you Bella the Baby Orangutan and Hubert the Pig.

Bella was born in circus. Although she is just a baby orangutan, she has already found her passion in dancing. She is very flexible and graceful and enjoys performing in her pretty tutu and little pink hat. I started to make the amigurumi orangutan baby already last fall. Somehow I could not find inspiration to finish it and her head was sitting in my unfinished-projects-box all this time. When the contest was announced I new right away what to do with the monkey. I used 100% cotton yarn (Drops Muskat) for the amigurumi monkey and a shiny cotton and polyester blend for the skirt, hat and umbrella.

***

Nüüd tutvustan orangutan Bellat ja siga Hubertit ka natuke lähemalt. Bella on sündinud tsirkuses. Kuigi ta on alles beebi orangutan, on ta leidnud juba omale tõelise kire tantsimises. Ta on väga paindlik ja graatsiline ning ta väga naudib esinemist oma ilusas seelikus ja väikses roosas kübaras. Tegelikult hakkasin seda orangutani heegeldama juba eelmisel sügisel, aga ei leidnud endas tema lõpetamiseks piisavalt inspiratsiooni ning ta jäi konutama karpi koos teiste poolikute töödega. Kui aga see võistlus välja kuulutati, siis teadsin ma kohe, mida selle ahviga ette võtta. Ahvi heegeldamiseks kasutasin 100%-list puuvillast lõnga ja aksessuaarideks läikega puuvilla-polüesteri segulõnga.   

Although Hubert is only a little pig he is a master of balancing acts on a ball. He wants to be the best and practices all the time. His act is a big hit every night and that makes him smile. The amigurumi pig was on my mind also already before the contest. I adjusted my idea a little by making him pants and a hat and a whimsical circus character was born. Crocheting the ball was quite a challenging task. I did not want to make the usual horizontal stripes but wanted to try something different. It took quite a lot of experimenting and frogging before I got all the colour changes just right. I think it looks really great. The amigurumi pig is crocheted with 100% cotton (Drops Muskat). 

***

Kuigi Hubert on alles väike põrsas, on ta pallil tasakaalutrikkide tegemise meister. Ta tahab olla parim ning harjutab pidevalt. Tema esinemisnumbrit saadab tsirkuses igal õhtul suur menu ja see paneb ta laialt naeratama. Selle amigurumi põrsa mõte idanes peas mul ka juba ammu enne võistlust. Arendasin natuke seda ideed, heegeldades talle jalga püksid ja pähe mütsi ning oligi kelmikas tsirkusetegelane sündinud. Palli heegeldamine oli paras väljakutse. Ma ei tahtnud seekord teha tavalisi horisontaalseid triipe, vaid proovida midagi uut. Päris pikka eksperimenteerimist ja mitmeid kordi üles harutamist sain värvivahetused kõik õigesti paika. Minu meelest näeb pall nüüd väga hea välja. Amigurumi siga on samuti heegeldatud 100%-lisest puuvillasest lõngast (Drops Muskat).     

Fingers crossed that my characters will be successful in this contest and thank you for supporting me with your vote!

Pöidlad pihku, et minu tegelastel läheb võistlusel hästi ja tänan ette, kui toetate mind oma häälega.

Cuddly teddy bears

11 Comments
September is almost over and I accidentally missed my little crochet blog's two-year anniversary. I started the blog with very ambitious plans to post much more often than I manage these days. Nevertheless I am happy that I still have the desire to keep the blog alive and share my adventures in the world of amigurumi. I am pleased that I have published five free patterns on the blog and seven amigurumi patterns can be purchased from my online stores. My most popular free pattern is Fred the Frog and the best selling pattern is Bibi the Ballerina Bear. 98 720 people from 162 countries have found their way to my blog since I started. Thank you all for visiting and I hope to give you enough reasons to come back in the future as well.

September on peaaegu juba läbi ja kogemata unustasin ära oma blogi kahe aasta sünnipäeva. Alustasin blogi pidamist üsna ambitsioonikate plaanidega, kuid kahjuks ei jõua ma praegusel ajal postitada kaugeltki nii tihti, kui ma algselt plaanisin. Sellegipoolest olen rõõmus, et mul on soov siiski blogi elusana hoida ning jagada oma seiklusi imelises mänguasjade heegeldamise maailmas. Mul on hea meel, et olen selle aja jooksul avaldanud viis tasuta heegeldamise juhendit blogis ning seitse mänguasjade heegeldamise juhendit on saadaval minu e-poodides. Kõige populaarsemaks tasuta juhendiks on senini osutunud Konn Fred ning kõige paremini müüb Baleriinkaru Bibi juhend. Alates blogi alustamisest on minu blogisse sattunud 98 720 inimest 162 riigist. Tänan kõiki, kes on seda blogi külastanud ning loodan anda piisavalt põhjust siia tagasi tulla ka tulevikus. 

Today I will share with you projects that I finished already in August. My older daughter turned seven this year and she is a little lady in some sense but she still loves to take plushies into bed with her at night. She had asked me already a long time ago to crochet her a really huggable big teddy bear. I promised to make her one as soon as I finish my other urgent projects and find the right yarn for it. A week before her birthday she went to summer camp. It must have been a lucky coincidence because I made a trip to a yarn store to get something else but came back with brown fuzzy yarn that was perfect for a soft teddy bear. As she was away from home the whole week I had just enough time to crochet her the teddy as a surprise for her birthday.

***

Täna tahan teile rääkida mänguasjadest, mille sain valmis juba augustis. Minu vanem tütar sai sel aastal juba 7-aastaseks ning mõnes mõttes on ta juba väike preili, kuid armastab endiselt õhtul koos kaisuloomadega voodisse pugeda. Ta palus mul juba tükk aega tagasi talle hästi pehme ja suur karumõmm heegeldada. Lubasin seda teha, kui olen oma muude töödega ühele poole saanud ning ka karu jaoks sobiva lõnga leian. Nädal enne oma sünnipäeva läks ta suvelaagrisse. Oli õnnelike juhuste kokkulangevus, et just sel ajal sattusin lõngapoodi, et sealt midagi muud osta, kuid tulin koju pruuni hoopis karvase lõngaga, mis sobib täiuslikult pehme karumõmmi heegeldamiseks. Kuna tütar oli terve nädal kodust eemal, siis andis see mulle piisavalt aega karumõmm sünnipäeva üllatuseks valmis heegeldada.  

I was so in love with the teddy bear myself so I fought the desire to keep it to myself. It turned out so cuddly and soft and I was sure it will be love at first sight for my daughter as well. You can imagine that I was a little dissapointed when I did not get the first reaction from my daughter that I was expecting. But as it turned out she was just sleepy in the morning and her first reaction was not conclusive. My heart melted when she whispered me before bedtime that the teddy bear is the most important toy for her now and it is worth more for her than all the other toys I have made her before. Now she sleeps with the bear every night. She was so unhappy and even cried when she forgot the bear to her grandma's one time.

***

Kui kaisukaru valmis sai, siis olin ma ise ikka jube rahul, mul oli lausa kiusatus see üldse endale jätta. Karu on tõesti väga pehme ja kaisutatav ning arvasin, et mu laps armub samuti sellesse esimesest silmapilgust. Võite ette kujutada, et olin natuke pettunud, kui tütre esimene reaktsioon ei olnud päris selline, nagu oodanud olin. Hiljem tuli ikka välja, et esimesest unisest reaktsioonist ei maksa lõplikke järeldusi teha. Mu südas sulas rõõmust, kui ta mulle õhtul enne magamaminekut sosistas, et see kaisukaru on nüüd tema kõige kallim kaisukas ning väärt palju rohkem kui kõik minu eelnevalt talle heegeldatud mänguasjad kokku. Nüüd läheb see karu kaissu igal õhtul. Ta oli väga õnnetu ja lausa nuttis, kui ükskord karu vanaema juurde unustas.   

The big teddy bear is about 45 cm (17.7 inches) tall. The yarn is 60% mercerized cotton and 40% microfiber polyamid, the beige yarn is 100% cotton. Usually it is a pain to crochet with a fuzzy yarn but I was surprised how easy this one was to work with. After trying it out I went back to the store the next day and bought a big pile of this yarn. It is a pity that there were only three colours available. I had a set of teddy bear joints at home that I wanted to try out and the big teddy bear has moving arms and legs. It was my first time to use plastic teddy bear nose instead of emroidered nose. A week later my daughter went to her friend's birthday and I made a smaller fuzzy teddy bear for her friend as well. The smaller teddy is about 30 cm (11.8 inches). I see more fuzzy teddy bears in my future, this will not be my last one.  

***

Suur kaisukaru on umbes 45 cm pikk. Kasutatud karvane lõng on 60% merseriseeritud puuvill ning 40% mikrofiiber polüamiid ja helepruun lõng on 100% puuvill. Tavaliselt on mul väga raske karvasest lõngast heegeldada, kuid ma olin üllatunud kui mõnus seda lõnga kasutada oli. Kui olin sellega heegeldamise järele proovinud, siis läksin järgmine päev poodi tagasi ja ostsin veel hunniku seda sama lõnga juurde. Kahjuks oli seal ainult kolme värvitooni saadaval. Suurel kaisukarul on liikuvad jalad ja käed. Esimest korda kasutasin ka plastikust nina tikitud nina asemel. Nädal peale oma sünnipäeva läks mu tütar ka sõbrale sünnipäevale ning talle tegin natuke väiksema karvase karu kingituseks. Kindlasti ei jää see minu viimaseks karvaseks kaisukaruks, näen neid ka oma tulevikus.

Crochet eyeglasses holder

8 Comments

Last weekend was my father's 65th birthday and what would an amigurumi lover give for his father? Something amigurumi of course! We have agreed with my family that we will not make any expensive gifts for each other. Nevertheless, self-made gifts are always welcome. When I found from the internet the idea to crochet a head with nose and ears as a holder for eyeglasses I thought it was really clever and fun. Most of my family members wear glasses and I have planned for a while now to make a gift for one of them. My father's birthday this year was the perfect time to finally try it out. When I gave the head to my father I explained to him that it serves three purposes. Firstly, it holds my father's glasses so he could always find them. Secondly, when my father needs to consult with someone smarter than himself he can talk to the head because two heads are always better than one. And thirdly, when my father is not at home and my mother wants to talk to somebody then the old man's head is almost as talkative as my father. :-)  

***

Eelmisel nädalavahetusel oli minu isa 65. sünnipäev ja mida kingib ometi üks amigurumihull tütar oma isale? No muidugi mingi heegeldatud tegelase! Me oleme perekonnas kokku leppinud, et enam me kalleid kingitusi üksteisele ei osta. Oma tehtud kingitused on sellegipoolest alati teretulnud. Kui ma leidsin internetist selle lõbusa ja kavala idee, et heegeldada nina ja kõrvadega suur pea prillide hoidjaks, siis mõtlesin kohe, et see oleks lahe kink mõnele minu prillikandjast perekonnaliikmele (ja neid on meil päris mitu). Selle aasta isa juubel oli hea võimalus see idee lõpuks teoks teha. Kui ma selle heegeldatud pea isale üle andsin siis selgitasin, et sellel on kolm eesmärki. Esiteks saab isa seal hoida oma prille, et need igal ajal üles leida. Teiseks on ikka mõnikord vaja kellegi endast targemaga nõu pidada ja kaks pead on ikka ju kaks pead. Kolmandaks võib see vanamehe pea seltsi pakkuda ka minu emale, kui isa kodust ära on, sest see on peaaegu niisama jutukas kui minu isa. :-) 


I had the idea from the beginning that it has to be a cheerful old man with grey hair. I had some silky and soft eyelash yarn left from my fuzzy kitten project that was perfect for the old man's hair. At first I was planning to make him a full head of hair but when I started to attach the hair he looked cuter partly bold. It was a quick and easy project and I needed only basic crocheting and amigurumi skills to make it. I used about 150 m (164 yards) of 100% cotton yarn (DROPS Paris, worsted weight) and a 4 mm crochet hook.

***

Mul oli kohe alguses idee heegeldada hallide juustega rõõmus vanamees ning mul oli veel karvaste kassipoegade heegeldamise ajast alles ka halli karvast lõnga. See lõng on nii pehme ja siidine ja sobis juusteks väga hästi. Algul plaanisin ikka vanamehe peale teha korraliku juuksepahmaka, kuid kui ma juukseid kinnitama hakkasin, siis nägi ta palju vahvam välja poolenisti kiilaspeana. See oli väga lihtne ja kiire projekt, kuna selleks oli vaja ainult väga algelisi heegeldamise ja amigurumi oskusi. Kasutasin selleks kaks tokki beeži DROPS Paris 100% puuvillast lõnga ning 4 mm heegelnõela.
