Pom Pom Fruit

Wow. Just, wow. In all my life, with all the pom poms I’ve seen and made, never has it occurred to me that I could make shapes with them. Mind blown!

I am definitely making these, even though I have no need for them and they serve no purpose other than being awesome!

Click here for other pom pom tutorials including flowers, animals, letters, and more. Super fun!

(PS: Added some tags so other yarn-crafters can see this too! This would be a great stash buster I think.)

Jacob’s Ladder by Alaina Varrone


Say hello to my amigurumi loco moco, a Hawaiian dish that consists of a bowl of garbage rice topped with a hamburger patty, gravy, a fried egg, and lots of green onion. :D I’d been craving it for awhile now and I made this to tide me over under I could acquire the ingredients to make a real one!

This is currently a personal project, but I will eventually release it as a pattern/tutorial once the design is finalized. This is my biggest yarn sculpture so far and it took a lot of time to make, but it was really fun to create from scratch. I learned quite a bit from it, especially in making amorphous shapes like the egg white and gravy.


My Etsy shop, stichesnpearls, has just been updated! ♥(✿ฺ´∀`✿ฺ)ノPlease feel free to take a look and reblog for anyone that may be interested, even if you yourself may not be. Money is tight at the moment, and anything that sells in the shop will help me meet the partial cost of my textbooks for the coming school year. The shop is currently my only source of income, so any purchase made is greatly appreciated! If you decide to purchase anything, don’t forget to use the coupon code THANKYOU for 5% off your entire order.


These tentacular Octopus and Giant Squid tables are the work of San Francisco-based bronze sculptor Kirk McGuire. The beautiful bronze cephalopods are so lifelike, we wouldn’t be surprised if you felt phantom tentacles tickling your ankles while sitting at either of these tables.

Visit Kirk McGuire’s website to check out his standalone bronze sculptures and more of his awesome undersea animal tables.
