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

Bear with Balloon

I've been running here and there a lot recently and I hope it's about time I can slow down and enjoy the time. At this moment, I present you with a special gift. A pattern for "bear with balloon". I first saw such a cutie at haruki's harugurumi blog. I can't resist the cuteness so I try to come out with my own. It's not as cute as Haruki's but I like it and I hope you'll like him too. Kudos to Haruki for the inspiration. ;)

Now, without further ado, here is the pattern:

Pattern Note: the bear and the balloon are made in round but it's not compulsory. I used 3.5mm hook and some 8 ply acrylic scrap. You can use any yarn you like best with suitable hook. You can choose any favourite colour to make your bear too.


R1. 6 sc in a magic ring

R3. (sc, inc)x6
R4. (2sc, inc)x6
R5. (3sc, inc)x6
R6 to R9. sc around
R10. (3sc, dec)x6
R11. (2sc, dec)x6
R12. (sc, dec)x6

Finish off and leave long tail for sewing

Ears (make 2)

R4. (sc, dec)x3
R5 to R6. sc around

Now that we have all the parts ready, stuff the head and body and sew them together. Then, sew the muzzle, ears, hands and legs together. I did not stuff the hands and i only stuff lightly in the "bigger" part of the legs. Viola! your bear is ready now! It's time to make the balloons.

Balloons (make as many as you like that can fly your bear far far away)

R1. 6sc in a magic ring
R2. 6inc
R3. (sc, inc)x6
R4. (2sc, inc)x6
R5 to R7. sc around
R8. (2sc, dec)
R9. sc around
R10. (sc, dec)x6
R11. sc around
R12. (sc, dec)x4
R13. 4(dec)

Finish off and leave long tail to tie to the bear's hand. Repeat as many as you want your bear to have the balloons. ;)

Now your bear can go up, up and away!

Note: You can make your bear your own way with the guidance of this pattern. Please DO NOT sell this pattern and do not claim it as yours. It is mine and please have a respect to it if you call yourself an artist. Thank you
