#35 – Unisex Box Scarf

If you’ve ever met me in real life, you’ll know that I love to “borrow” oversized sweaters and t-shirts from my brothers. I’m 90% sure that they’re made of softer fabrics than female tops and that alone fills me with happiness when I wear them. The only problem is that since I’m on the short side, oversized sweaters can sometimes make me look like I’m drowning in fabric. As an alternative method to get that comfy, tomboy look, I wanted to look into unisex style scarves this week!

Inspiration #9 – ID Holder

I’m not sure about you, but 90% of the contents of my wallet never get used. There are gift cards for stores I rarely frequent, membership cards for stores I’ve been to once, and stamp cards for a variety of bubble tea places. Unfortunately, I’m also a girl who doesn’t like to carry a purse very often. This means that when I’m leaving the house, I’m clutching not only my keys, but a very large wallet that doesn’t fit into my pockets. I’m always on the lookout for a more convenient alternative, and I think I’ve finally found it! I decided to crochet a mini wallet, big enough for an ID and a debit card, and I’m so excited to share it with you!

#34 – Amigurumi Panda

I think that giant pandas have to be one of the most universally loved animals. I mean, what’s not to like? They’re cuddly-looking and I think the endangered aspect just adds to their mystique. Also, being a good Chinese girl, I like to think that I just have an affinity for them. Still, my love for them can’t compare to my friend, and since it was her birthday this week, I knew I wanted to try making an amigurumi panda!

Okay, I know I’ve been on a little bit of a crop top spree, but this is the last one before summer ends. Pinky promise! I’m actually super excited to tell you about this crop top though, because it’s finally an original pattern! I love being able to experiment and try new stitches, and not to toot my own horn, but I really like how this pattern turned out. In fact, I would be honoured if you’d take the time to check it out.

Inspiration #8 – Stargazing

This summer, I’ve been working with some international students visiting from China, and it’s really helped to remind me of how blessed I am to live in Canada! I asked one of them what their favourite things about Canada was, and their reply was “the sky”. That made me pause for a second, as I’ve never even considered what it would be like to live in a city that is constantly dealing with smog or air pollution. In tribute to that, I wanted to try make a little amigurumi star, since that’s my favourite part of the sky!
