Welcome

Amigurumi is my love at first sight. The first time I saw it, I know I'm in love with it. Since then I have been making loads of them. I started to make them out of love and passion and then, came some who really see the beauty of it offers them a new home and I let them go to the good hands.

And now, if you ask me, yes I will answer that I do sell my amigurumis and toys. I am offering every single one that I made for a small fee (except some I might note as not for sale) because I have to buy the yarn indeed. I don't produce them in mass because I believe every single of them has their own character and personality and most of all, they are made with love... and passion. But, I do take customised order should you need them for special occasion because that is what they are meant for.

So, feel free to contact me through email (seridewi@live.com.my) or at facebook page : SERI HANDMADE should you have anything regarding to my work. I am more than happy to serve you for that. But please, serious buyer only and I am focusing on keepsake amigurumi and bears and also baby jackets/item.
Announcing here that I have already started a new blog - Serishoppe for supplies and my handmade items.

Thank you

Happy Frog Free Pattern

I am a HUGE fan of free pattern. thee hee hee. I really appreciate people who shares their patterns. Some are worth buying! So, today I would like to share mine. This pattern had been tested by Nancy and i thank her for helping me write my first pattern. So now, I present you my very first free pattern.

Happy Frog


Materials
-Yarn – use a yarn and hook to make a solid fabric so you can’t see the stuffing so any favourite yarn will do ; worsted weight, DK, or even if you want to make a furry frog.. not a problem.. but I use 4 ply acrylic.
- Hook - any suitable hook – I used 4/0 (2.3mm) hook
-Stuffing
- Google eyes or patch of felt - anything
-Tapestry needle

This is a free pattern. Make as many frogs as you want but do not sell the pattern. You may sell your finished frogs, but not the pattern. However, you are not allowed to sell items that are made commercially. The item must be handmade with your own hands.

Should you find anything to comment to make it a better pattern, please do leave me some words. I really love to see your version of Happy Frog.

Loved the little frog! Made one up in a very short amount of time today. Just what I was looking for. Making a set for soon-to-be-born baby. Hat, mittens, booties (still looking for a pattern I like), & a toy. This little guy was a perfect addition! :)

mausal said...

Great pattern. Thanks for sharing!
It's really great for beginners and so cute! <3

I did some modification on the hands and legs.
I closed them with a slip stich and put the whole ch-queue through the opposite side whole whole from the sc of the first row.
So the line is in the middle of the hand.

mausal said...

Unfortunately I can't send you an e-mail. So I post the link here. You can write me there if you want to.

Such a cute little frog!
I'm crocheting one too, with minor modification of the pattern: I crocheted the head and body in one piece. Just added a 13th row to the head: sc 2 tog all around, and then continue with row 2 of the body.

Knit'n'Purl said...

Hi Seri, I love your happy frog pattern, a customer asked for a frog, so I used your pattern, and liked it so much I would like to sell more items made from it. I noticed you state that you don't mind this at the bottom of your pattern, so I have created a listing in my Folksy shop, giving you credit for the design and providing a link to this page. Please let me know if this is ok, as I will delete it if not. I don't want to step on your toes, so I thought I would check. Here are my frogs, what do you think? http://folksy.com/items/5147131-Freddy-or-Fiona-Frog-Amigurumi-Toy

Cik Seri Sue said...

Knit'n'Purl, yes you may sell the frogs you've made .. i'm sorry for the late reply .. i've been busy with lots of thing .. I'm so happy you could spread the love and joy with the frogs and also thankful that you put the credit there for me ..

have a wonderful day!

Martha Cordero said...

Hi Cik Seri Sue. I made your little frog, which I love, but I put a pipe cleaner in the arms and legs to make it pose-able. It came out really cute. I have not sold them just made them for my own pleasure. :)
