My Backyard Monsters

Creations from my imaginations

Anonymous said: I'm wondering if it's ok to make things using your patterns to sell? I haven't found anything on your blog about it so I thought I'd just ask :)

HI Anon,

Sorry but no, I really would not like that because I’m sharing these patterns for free, and the only way I’m receiving anything monetary is through my etsy store where I sell the finished products. I hope you understand! Thanks for reminding me; I should go check on my posts because I’m pretty sure I put this disclaimer on all the patterns I released (except the latest one I posted because I realized I didn’t afterwards and totally forgot to go back to do it - thank you!).

Disney Tsum Tsum - Little Perry the Platypus

Hey guys!

Finally, here’s the first Tsum Tsum pattern! I thought I’d do the little one first, because it’s faster! For once I’m not going to do any long introductions. If you want one, here’s the post with all the background information and stuff. Let’s get right on to the pattern!

Hey guys!

As promised, I’ve decided to post about the Disney Tsum Tsums I’ve been making as of late! This will be a short introductory post, and then the patterns will be posted individually for ease of access. Once they’re up I’ll update this post so there’ll be links to the respective patterns!

UPDATES! (Sorry, no patterns yet)

Hello. Please don’t kill me. Again, I’m so sorry for not updating more often. But as it turns out, this past (current? ending?) summer has been really busy despite the fact that I’m not taking classes. Life seems to be that way doesn’t it? Basically my mom bought a farm (OMG), and she’s starting a business, and we’ve all been roped in to help, Also, my dude came over to stay and for all my lovely new followers who may not be in the loop, we’re in a LDR and so it was a pretty big deal, and so a lot of time went into planning the trip, and then there was the actual trip, and then post-trip picture reviewing and editing and stuff. And then my family had went on a short trip to Osaka, Japan because my brother’s been on a student exchange thing there for the past half year and he wanted to bring us around. Also, I’ve been busy with uni stuff even though I’m not taking classes this summer quarter because I’m in the psychology department honor program and there’s always work to be done there… Overall, it was a lovely busy, but I was crocheting and crafting much less than I’d like for sure.

Anyway, I wanted to just let you guys know what I have lined up, so you guys won’t abandon me in case you think I’m never coming back (I’m really trying guys D:). Always too much to do and too little time… So anyway here’s the gist of it, basically the highest-priority stuff that should be coming out soon:

  • Bilbo Baggins (I hope I make it by the time the Battle of the Five Armies comes out this December!)
  • Disney Tsum Tsums (BE EXCITED FOR THIS K?!)
  • Gintama’s Sadaharu and Elizabeth (any anime fans out there?)

Another thing I did this summer was rework my room. I was wondering if you guys would be interested in seeing a room remodeling post sort of a thing? Let me know! I DIYed a lot of things, but to be completely honest I bought a fair amount of things too hahaha.

For some miraculous miracle-thing, I’ve gotten a bunch of new followers this summer (which really surprised me because I was being a really bad blogger and not posting anything, but in a good way of course), and so now I feel kinda even more guilty for not posting so I’m trying even harder! Hopefully if I get a momentum going things will pick up. But anyway, thank you, you new fellaz, I love you and you are awesome. And you faithful old-timers, thank you for sticking by me! I love you guys too, and you’re amazeballs.

See all of you again real soon!

Love,
Abi

Happy World Lion Day! Revisiting this little dude I made back when I first started crocheting, almost three years ago now! I gave him the rather grand and unimaginative name, Aslan ;)

If you guys want to whip one of these dudes up yourself, you can get the pattern from the little booklet, Vanna’s Choice: Little Crochet Critters. I got mine from JoAnn’s, but it’s also available on Amazon!
