I’ve been crocheting a lot of amigurumis lately without patterns and I’m loving it 😀 Opening up an etsy store just gave me motivation for making more without them. I’ve been lagging, I’m sorry! It’s just really hot and working with yarn in this weather is terrible! So what have I been doing besides crocheting? Well, I hemmed someone’s pants for them for the very first time and I think it went well 🙂 This is my second try at hemming jeans and it is fairly easy to do! If anyone is interested, you can find a tutorial here but it was my sister in law who taught it to me and her sister in law who taught it to her and showed me how to do that stitch (invisible stitch?) inside the jeans so it will stay put.

it’s soo much better in person 😉

raawwrr!

A friend of mine who was also into japanese street fashion (but more into the gothic lolita look) asked me if I wanted to dress up halloween 2005. I said okay but I didn’t have any clothes to pull the look off so i decided to make a skirt just like the one from the magazine, Gothic Lolita Bible. This was my first constructed skirt so i’m glad it didn’t turn out so bad. I was going to add a big bow in the back and make a petticoat to give it shape but i never got to it.
