I am a big fan of K-dramas. One of my favorites is a historical fiction series that takes place during the Goryeo Dynasty in Korea. It’s the story of a girl from the 21st century who found herself transported into that time and tries to cope with her new surroundings and get entangled with the court dramas. She meets a prince, the 4th prince Wang So, who is the subject chosen for my latest project. I wanted to make that doll for a very long time because I love the character, hair, and costume.
I picked his black costume from one of the most dramatic and memorable scenes in the series, which is all black. The doll is about 12 inches tall. I tried to give the face more shape this time around and I really like it!
Here is the original inspiration. I do want to make Hae Soo one of these days to complete the set. I just need to figure out which costume I want to make because there are so many beautiful ones!
I have a new tutorial on YouTube to make this adorable character from The Astronaut, a song by Jin of BTS. I fell in love with Wootteo the second I saw it and couldn’t resist crocheting my own. I ended up with two versions of the doll, one crocheted with light yarn and the other one with medium-sized yarn. I also made modifications to the head (the first version is crocheted vertically, and the other, horizontally). The tutorial I uploaded on YouTube is for the second version, which I liked the best.
The doll is about 8 inches tall, crocheted with a 2.75mm hook. The instructions are quite easy (single crochet, increase and decrease). I used felt for the face and used a printing of the original doll to cut it. It’s a great project for beginners who understand the basics. it’s a really fun and easy project.
My Wootteo has joined my Jin doll and they now keep each other company! They both wear pigtails inspired by the Squid Game doll so they match perfectly!
I hope you will enjoy this tutorial. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments. Happy crocheting!
I uploaded a tutorial to make a Halloween version of Shooky. The base (body, arms, and legs) are the same as the original Shooky Tutorial, I just added wings and horns and changed the colors. I think it’s a really cute Halloween edition and I hope you will have fun making it!
I posted a new tutorial on Youtube, inspired by the Jack in the Box doll concept of J-Hope’s album. It’s an easy and fun project to crochet, you only need to know basic stitches such as single crochet, increase and decrease. I hope you will enjoy this tutorial, and if you have any questions, please let me know in the comments.
The doll was inspired by J-Hope’s concept for his music video “More”. This has to be one of the favorite dolls I made so far. I love the theme behind it, it gave me the opportunity to work on something a bit darker than usual while keeping it cute.
I also made a custom doll stand for it with some wood and paint. Painting the checkers was the hardest part because I am not used to that medium. I also made the little box
I am still trying to find my signature style for dolls, so I always venture out trying different things when I create a pattern. But recently I have been more and more focused on finding my own style and the process of making this doll was part of it. I think that the next dolls I make will be based on this model even if I decide to improve on a few modifications.
I uploaded the hair tutorial for my JK Black Swan doll. It’s the last video of the series, there are five in total to complete the doll. You can also use this tutorial as a base for any doll you want to make. There are many ways to create hair for amigurumi dolls, but this one is my favorite because I love the end result. The process takes a little bit of work but it’s worth it!
I am a bit behind on my blog. I worked on so many projects since last month but I haven’t been able to post about them yet. Here is the first of the three dolls I made this month.
Namjooning doll: I wanted to make a Namjoon doll with props representing his favorite things. Books, art, and nature. It was an opportunity for me to create props and try different things. I made the books with cardstock and paper, an easel with ice cream sticks following this tutorial I found on Youtube, and crocheted the little plant. I really enjoyed creating an entire scenery around the doll, I think I would like to do that more.
As for the doll itself, I wanted to try something new as well so I crocheted the head separately and inserted it into the neck, this way it can move left and right. I also tried to give more volume to the cheeks to give his face more character. I think I will continue to do it that way because I really liked the outcome.
I also made the doll stand! I used pieces of wood I glued together, and a popsicle stick. It was quite easy to do, I think I will upload a tutorial in the near future.
I uploaded parts 3 and 4 of my JK Black Swan tutorial on YouTube. One for the face and chain, and the other for the jacket. The series is almost complete, I just need to work on the hair. The last tutorial will be available in the next couple of weeks.
The pattern for the body of the doll is available on ETSY. It can be used to make this doll or any amigurumi projects:
Last month I took on a challenging project to crochet two dolls inspired by two Korean artists and performers I admire a lot, Psy and Yoongi. I love their collab song as well as the “Western” theme of their music video. I knew I could not resist that challenge even if it was going to be difficult and tedious to recreate in crochet form.
It took me one month to make both dolls. I had to redo a lot of things that didn’t work out along the way and at one point I even cursed myself for even starting this. It didn’t help that I spilled fabric paint on one of the jackets when I was almost done, but I managed to go through all those trials and finished it. The dolls are quite big, they are about 14 inches tall.
I am very happy with the result, I learned new things and techniques along the way. I used fabric paint to make the prints on Yoongi’s shirt and glued little gems on Psy’s shirt to make it sparkle. I had never worked with gems before, so I looked up YouTube tutorials to learn how to do it. Let me say that it is easier said than done. The gems are very small and difficult to glue without spills. I initially intended to put some on his sleeves as well but I was so nervous to mess up the jacket that I decided to leave it to that.
