Wilbur the Wildcat

My most recent orders was incredibly unique and was exciting to make!

It was replica of The University of Arizona’s mascot; Wilbur the Wildcat!

This challenge stayed close to my heart because I had attended UA online briefly for my Graduate studies. I really love this University and have learned so much during my time there! This little Wilbur is headed to Tucson, to my coworker’s daughter who is currently a freshman at UA. Bittersweet to see him go!


Groundhog Day!

I love February! I love seeing the colors of pink and red nearly everywhere I go. Plus, it means that Spring is near. Spring is my favorite season (despite how dusty it gets here in Southern New Mexico)!

Speaking of Spring, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow. That means we should expect an early Spring!

In my early crochet years, I made this tiny Punxsutawney Phil. He doesn’t really look like a groundhog, but I still love him so much!!!


Sally Skellington

Crocheting Sally was quite the challenge! I had to determine what to add and leave out so that she wouldn’t look too overwhelming!

Nevertheless, the journey was so much fun! If anything, I was horrified about how I was going to make her dress because if I patched up all the pieces manually, it would have been overwhelming and not sure if I’d do a decent job. Instead I sewed her dress with felt and drew everything else with a Sharpie and some highlighters!!!

I’m so happy with the results! Today she goes to her new home with Jack Skellington!


Jack Skellington

I had just completed my second order of the year for Jack Skellington!

This is my new and improved version of him because I decided to make him taller than the last one I made this past summer. This actually made him look more like the real Jack Skellington!

While I was working on him, I couldn’t help but want to create an ornament of Jack’s head. So I went for it and it was a quick and easy project!

I’m such a great fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas, so I had so much fun with these projects!

Stay tuned as I am currently working on Sally!!



I had received a special order to crochet a plush doll of Spanish Musician Enrique Bunbury. I was so nervous yet excited about this because, per my online research, no one had done this before. I had no idea what to expect and wondered how I can get a crochet doll to look like a particular human being!

But I took a step of faith and just began!

After taking it one step at a time, I was amazed that little by little, it really began to look like Enrique! I’m so happy with the end result.

I also really enjoy his music myself. I’m actually considering building an inventory of this doll to add to my future online shop!
