Youmacon X!

Hey, everyone! Moony's Plush Plaza is going to be here at the tenth Youmacon, so if you're otaku-ing it up at the convention, swing by the Artist Alley and come find me! Pssst, I'll have candy to hand out, too. It's Halloween, after all. Can't wait to see all the cosplays and whatnot. If I'm not at my table, I'm gonna be wandering around somewhere. Look for the artist badge that says Moony!

Until next time,

Youmacon and New Stuff

Hello again. It sure has been a while since my last post. I've been so busy with so many things lately that I haven't had time, but I'm still crocheting away. Still looking for new ideas for things to make, since I'll be at Youmacon X this year as more than just a con-goer. I'm going to be selling! Super nervous about it, too. I'm hoping with as expensive as preparations are, that I'll at least make decent profit. And that of course means having plenty of things made to sell.

So as a bit of a teaser, and since they've revealed a League of Legends voice actor as a guest at the convention, I've decided to try my hand at making...POROS~!

Adorable, isn't it? <3 I'm planning on making more of these if I can, maybe make different variations, like having mustaches or something (lol manly Braum). You can click the pic above to go to the etsy listing if you'd like one. Each poro comes with a delicious Poro-Snax for it to enjoy. And be sure to keep an eye on the shop for new things. I usually have something new every few weeks and there's plenty more in the making.

Until next time,

Kawaii Star Keychain Pattern

Hi, people. It's been forever since I've written another post, but since I've had people asking me about this pattern, I thought I'd get my butt in gear and actually get it typed out. So, let's get started. This is what we're making! (PS. You can click the pic to see the etsy listing if you're not crochet savvy but still want one of these cuties.)

Here's what you'll need:
  • Size E/4 crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn of your preferred color
  • Your preferred stuffing material
  • 9-10mm solid black plastic safety eyes
  • Small length of chain
  • Split key ring
  • Pink fabric marker
 I join my rounds for this project, but you don't have to.

Front/Back: Make 2

Rnd 1: 5sc in magic ring (5sc)

Rnd 2: inc in each sc (10sc)

Rnd 3: [sc, inc] 5 times (15sc)

*3sc, ch 1, turn (3sc)

3sc, ch 1, turn (3sc)

dec across all three sc^ (1sc)*

^To do the decrease, insert the hook into the first sc and pull up a loop. Insert the hook into the next sc and pull up another loop. Then insert the hook into the last sc and pull up another loop so there is a total of four loops, then yarn over and pull through all the loops on the hook.



Fasten off, reattach yarn in the next free sc of your circle.
Repeat ** for each of the remaining points, don't fasten off after the 5th point.
Instead, ch 1 and then sc around the whole star evenly for one row and fasten off.
Attach two eyes to your front side and then sew the front and back together with wrong sides together, using the front loops from either side only.


Don't forget to stuff before completely closing up your seam.
After it's all sewn up, sew your bit of chain to the top of the star and add a little "blush" to its cheeks with your fabric marker. And then you're done! Super easy.

If you have any problems or questions, just let me know. Enjoy!

Until next time,

Nyan nyan nyan~

Hello again! Nothing terribly exciting to post at the moment, though I will be putting up a free pattern quite soon. But for the moment, I'd just like to share the latest bit of inspiration I've had. Originally made for a contest on deviantART, I decided to put the finished product in my etsy shop. It's Nyan Cat! Nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan~ You can get one for yourself by clicking the image below!
