{amigurumi} hot cocoa with strawberry and mint flavored marshmallows

Tessa the Tea Cup has been made in baby pink with an aqua stripe near the rim of the cup. She is a delicate and tender tea cup that holds hot cocoa with marshmallow sprinkles in strawberry and mint flavors.

I found the pattern to the tea cup in an amigurumi book that my Mom gifted me for Mother's Day this year (2013). It comes with a kit she found it at Barnes n Noble. I've browsed through it several times and finally took time to read it more carefully yesterday afternoon while I was waiting at the doctor's office. I read the whole tutorial first (since i had time) and as soon as we got our three children to bed last night I began working on it. I finished up Tessa this afternoon during nap time with my baby girl's help. (okay, so not so baby anymore, she is almost 5 but she is my baby still :) ) She enjoyed cutting up some yarn and making suggestions. I wonder if she'll become a designer some day. As she went to bed tonight she said: "I liked the 'taza' (tea cup) we made together."

Tessa has been based off a pattern from the book called, so the book it's called Yummy Crochet - 12 projects too cute to eat! Ahhh! I'll so have to agree with that statement! The book is a collection of amigurumi crochet projects compiled by Kristen Rask. The book comes with a kit; ya know, pink yarn, hook, fiberfill for the stuffing, yarn needle, safety eyes, and thread. Everything one needs to get started on completing two projects from the book.

In addition to the materials above, I used the following:

Aqua yarn from my stash
Clover G Hook
6mm safety eyes
tapestry needle
embroidery thread (aqua and pink to match yarn)

Ready to see some pictures? I am so ready to introduce her to you!

Everyone, meet Tessa.

Have you tried any amigurumi? What has been your experience like? Have you tried any of the patterns from yummy crochet ?

Happy crocheting and sipping on hot cocoa during this time of the year.

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands. 

This crochet towel holder takes about 20 minutes or less to make depending on your speed. 

What I love about this crochet pattern is that it creates a very useful item using cotton yarn. We use these holder in our kitchen and reminds everyone where to keep the kitchen towel so it doesn't get lost.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
