how to make it look like a mushroom:

this is how your ‘mushroom’ will look like first:

so, place it on your hands like so:

then start folding it in. because of the different rows of decrease and all arounds, it will easily fold into a little mushroom:

so once it’s properly folded, the bottom should look like this:

so once it’s properly standing, it will look like this: yes, it stands without any stuffing necessary for the bottom! cool, right?

And now, you can make as many mushrooms as you want!!!

so far, i’ve made four using multi-colored yarns…i’m actually hoping to create at least 7 for a special project I’m currently working on ;) such pretty colorsssssss

feel free to email me [shannennicolex3@Yahoo.com] or post your own little mushrooms to my Facebook page, i’d love to see them!

i hope that you’ll enjoy making your own little mushrooms

Finished my first pseudo ami.
What do you think about it?
Pseudo because it simply appears as an ami but there is not stuffing involved at all! It can also double as a pen topper :) overall pretty happy with how it turned out and excited to make more in different colors!

Ummm... Hello~~~ Could you write an introduction about yourself? Like which country you are from and where did you get your inspiration from? My teacher says we need to write an essay on a famous artist. I remembered a video that you introduced yourself in but I can't seem to find that video anymore... Thanks :)
sweetncutecreations sweetncutecreations Said:

Aww thank you for thinking that I’m famous! It’s such a compliment!!!!
So here’s the basics about me:
Name: shannen Nicole Chua hence the sweet n cute
Age: I turned 18 late last year
Currently a college sophomore taking up my bachelor of science degree in management major in legal management in the ateneo de Manila university
I’m from the Philippines but I’m Chinese making me Chinese Filipino
I started crocheting when I was around 11, I think but I’m not sure, but only took it seriously as my passion when I was 14
I started sweet n cute creations when I was 15 nearly 16 primarily to just post my works. By the time I was 16 1/2, I started my little online shop. Since then, I’ve had features in calendars in the US (crochet a day calendar), a local television program, 2 books (both care of amigurumipatterns.net), and a magazine (inside crochet based in the UK)
I’m currently on the road to expand and diversify sweet n cute creations to other forms of media hence the digital art post a few days ago.
I hope this helps you! And once again, thank you for choosing me as the artist you will write about!!!

Thank you SO MUCH for the free patterns! Not only are they extremely cute, but your instructions are pretty clear and so easy to follow. This is my first time crocheting amigurumi and I have to say that I'm having a lot of fun. I'm making the dragon right now (though I ran out of yarn halfway through D:) and I'm excited to see how it turns out. Anyways, thank you again and know how much I appreciate this blog. : )
sweetncutecreations sweetncutecreations Said:

Aww you are very very welcome!!
I’m so glad that you find the instructions easy and the amigurumi cute! I hope that you’ll truly enjoy crocheting and making amigurumi

In line with diversifying and improving Sweet N’ Cute Creations, Sweet N’ Cute Creations is branching out to wallpapers.

I started creating these wallpapers initially for personal use since I wanted minimalist animal wallpapers and couldn’t find any that fitted my preferences. When I finished my first wallpaper - the pig because it is my favourite animal, i though to myself, why not share these to other people as well? So that’s what i’m doing right now!

Keeping with the theme of all my creations, I hope that you will see the sweet n’ cute side of these wallpapers as well!

I hope you enjoy these wallpapers!

I simply ask that if you do repost the picture to give me credit. I purposely did not place a watermark because i know how much you would hate to see a watermark on a wallpaper.

Wallpapers available: 1280x720 (typical desktop) and 640x1136 (iPhone 5/5s)

Comparison of the munchkins to my giant polar bear <3 love how itty bitty the munchkins truly are! Can’t wait for my niece to see the finished pig (the munchkin she specifically requested I make)
Forgive the tipsy turvy munchkins…they wouldn’t ‘sit’ properly on top of polar bear
