I’ve been nom­i­nat­ed for a Lieb­ster Award by the won­der­ful Kirsty at Tea and Rain­bows! :D 

That made my day. Thanks so much for your thought­ful­ness Kirsty! I’ve been fol­low­ing Kirsty’s blog for a while and I’m always super impressed with her sewing projects — please hop over to check them out!

Part of the award involves answer­ing some ques­tions for Kirsty, which are so over­due now, and I’m post­ing a much abbre­vi­at­ed response to the nom­i­na­tion because of lack of time, I’m sor­ry >_< but here they are!

1. What’s your guilty plea­sure?
I eat far too much chips, some­times I think it’s not so good for me but that’s the first thing I go for after a busy day at school/work :S

2. What’s your favourite kind of fab­ric to work with?
Cot­ton! Very easy to work with and does­n’t slip all over the place.

3. Favourite ani­mal?
Llamas, capy­baras, rab­bits, giraffes, pen­guins, owls (it’s hard to name just one :P)  

4. What’s your all-time-favourite sewing pat­tern to make?
The square top! (and vari­a­tions of it, dress­es and such)

5. What one sewing tool can’t you live with­out?
Nee­dles of all sorts. I use them to sew togeth­er cro­chet and knit­ting projects as well, and embroi­der­ing details.

6. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An artist or a paleontologist 

7. What’s the best thing that hap­pened to you today?
I got some free time to knit, and to write this blog post :D

8. What’s your favourite seam fin­ish?
I’ve only ever use straight stitch… oh wait, I tried French seam once, it was fun.

9. How long ago did you start sewing?
When I was 14.

10. If I gave you a cat, what would you name it?
Fil­bert. Or McFurson. 

11. Where do you get your sewing inspi­ra­tion from?
What I see peo­ple wear, or blogs. I like very sim­ple shapes and structures.


And now, I’ve got a ques­tion for you! I haven’t been post­ing amigu­ru­mi or cro­chet tiny plush pat­terns late­ly, part of the rea­son is that I’m hav­ing a hard time com­ing up with ideas for new things to make. I’m won­der­ing what you would like to see an amigu­ru­mi / cro­chet tiny plush pat­tern for? Please feel free to leave a comment! 

And to make it fun, I will ran­dom­ly choose a com­ment and make the animal/thing that’s sug­gest­ed in the com­ment next Sat­ur­day, and the per­son who made the com­ment will receive the fin­ished cro­chet plush :) And of course, I will post the pat­tern to share with every­one. Look­ing for­ward to hear­ing your ideas!

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. Thanks for answer­ing my ques­tions! I would love to see a tiny capy­bara amigu­ru­mi pat­tern, but I don’t know how fea­si­ble that is :)

  2. Con­grat­sTr­ish you deserve it, you put a lot into your day, so a few chips are a good treat!
    I would love you to try mak­ing a giraffe, they are so majestic.
    As always look­ing for­ward to your cre­ations or great finds. Sheila x

  3. I would love to see a pen­guin or a platypus…two of my daugh­ter’s favourite animals :)

  4. OMG emol­ga is a fly­ing squir­rel! that’s SO awe­some! (that’s a sur­prise to me because i’ve nev­er watched Poke­mon) thanks Shawna!

  5. A guinea pig! But I also sec­ond Kirsty’s idea for a tiny capy­bara, since that’s basi­cal­ly a guinea pig anyways ;)

  6. oooh, i did not know that capy­baras are basi­cal­ly guinea pigs. guinea pigs are awe­some :D thank you Laura!

  7. OMG!!! I TOTALLY eat too many chips, too! (Wait. Are we talk­ing US chips or crisps, like Dori­tos or some­thing, or UK chips like French fries?) Not that it mat­ters … if it’s salty and crunchy, I’m all over it! LOL

    Hmm…plushie or amigur­mi thing … Ooo!!! How about a capy­bara?!?! Oh, wait. Some­one said that already. Since you seem to be an aquat­ic gal, let’s go with a narwhal?!

  8. Capy­bara was my thought too! Then you could go down to High Park Zoo and play with them and the real capybaras!

  9. chips, the round-ish pota­to chips. but i also like fries. and now i’m eat­ing cheese crunch :S

    haha, mike has been ask­ing for a nar­whal for the longest time! he’s ecsta­t­ic that you sug­gest­ed it.

  10. oooh! i did­n’t know high park zoo has capy­baras! was too dis­tract­ed by the lla­mas last time we went. have to go vis­it them in the summer.

  11. Chips are deli­cious — espe­cial­ly Miss. Vick­ies (: I think a red pan­da would be real­ly cute!

  12. This is a bird rather than an actu­al ani­mal, but I would love it if you designed a car­di­nal. My son-in-law is a big fan of mak­ing up con­tin­u­ing sto­ries, and the hero of most of his sto­ries is a squir­rel. (I’m in the process of mak­ing one of your nin­ja squir­rels for him.) In one of more dra­mat­ic sto­ries the squir­rel has an accom­plice, a car­di­nal named Scar­lett. I would love to be able to make a minia­ture Scarlett!

  13. that’s awe­some! mike and i make up con­tin­u­ing sto­ries too! usu­al­ly involv­ing a num­ber of friend­ly mon­sters who run a cafe, and an owl who runs a school… any­way, a car­di­nal named Scar­lett would be a fab­u­lous pat­tern! thanks Mrs. T!

  14. Ha ha ha! Great minds!
    And as much as I’d love to have the nar­whal, maybe Mike should get the first one!
