Hiya 👋🏻 another @littlehappygorgeous #mollietakeover post. I’m all about this odd couple. Friendship goals right?! If you haven’t realised by now, I’m slightly obsessed with cotton yarn in pastel shades. I can’t get enough. I find cotton the best yarn for Amigurumi’s as it is strong and holds its shape so well. A good tip is to downsize your crochet hook from what is recommended on the yarn when making Ami’s. This will keep your stitches tight and closed so no fibrefill can peek through 👀 What’s your favourite type of yarn to craft with? Any cotton recommendations for me? I’m always on the hunt for great yarn! [This Jellyfish was a wonderful free pattern I found by @1dogwoof - I just tinkered with the shape a little bit 😊] #molliemakes#molliemakers#littlehappygorgeous#yarnaddict

(My fave species of turtle!)
The pig-nosed turtle is unlike any other species of freshwater turtle. The feet are flippers - resembling those of marine turtles. The nose looks like that of a pig, having the nostrils at the end of a fleshy snout (where it gets its name from). ...

Hello 👋🏻 me again, Charlotte from @littlehappygorgeous with another #mollietakeover post. When I first started to crochet I was very intimidated by crocheting “in the round”. You too? Please try not to be! I promise once it clicks in with practice, it will be easy peasy. I began crocheting spheres of varying sizes first. Then graduated to cones, then cylinders, boxes, spirals, etc etc. Once you learn your basic shapes the Amigurumi world is your oyster! The above Ice cream is made up of basic 3D shapes all crocheted “in the round”. These shapes constructed together (which some will say is the most tedious part of Amigurumi making 🤣) suddenly transform into a very funky Ice cream treat 🍦 My inspiration for this Ice cream came from the very talented baking goddess @katherine_sabbath after I attended a cake making demo of hers. I love being inspired by other creatives! So have you dared to give crocheting in the round a go yet?
Hello 👋🏻 it’s Charlotte here again from @littlehappygorgeous for another #mollietakeover post. Here’s a sneak peak at a new crochet pattern I’m currently working on. Two iconic birds of Australia (where I’m from), the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo & Galah. I believe they’re quite exotic & sort after birds outside of Oz, but they’re literally everywhere here 😂 and in particular a local park just down the road from me. While there I thought to myself “I want to crochet you guys!” I do love their Pom Pom crests and don’t you think they almost could belong in some kind of fabulous punk band!? Where do you draw your creative inspiration from? Culture, environment, community perhaps... ? 💕
