crochet starfish time lapse - Pops de Milk

Crochet Starfish Time Lapse

One of the first crochet amigurumi projects I ever did was a starfish. Of course, my first starfish didn’t turn out that well. But since those early days of my crochet career, I’ve made several amigurumi starfish and the most recent one was filmed, sped up 12 times, and covered with an awesome chip tune. […]

Crochet Stegosaurus Cube - Pops de Milk

Stuart the Crochet Stegosaurus

In our home, at the height of summer, when it gets really hot and the house plants flourish, I sometimes see a strange creature rummaging through the basil, or chewing on the stems of our English Ivy. It’s hard to make out what exactly it is because it moves so fast, but if I didn’t know […]

Pops de Milk - Haikyū!! crochet crow

Crochet Haikyu Crow Amigurumi PDF Pattern

This adorable crochet Haikyu crow would not have been possible if it hadn’t been requested by a fan and supporter of handmade work. I was approached on Etsy to design and create a pattern based on a character from the manga series, Haikyu. I was provided with a photo of a plush version and was […]

Crochet Bear Slippers Pattern - Pops de Milk

Crochet Bear Slippers

Remember when I made these oh so cozy crochet boot slippers? Me too, they were going to keep my feet warm all winter long. And then Jason saw them. And he wriggled his feet into the slippers, wondering why they were so small. I do believe he actually said, “They’re super warm but they’re too […]

crochet sandwich

Crochet Sandwich Coasters

So apparently back in the day there was a nobleman, the Earl of Sandwich, who liked to gamble all day and all night long. Of course he’d have to eat and one day, so engrossed in a game that he couldn’t leave the table, he got his assistant to put a chunk of meat between […]

Crochet Mini Pumpkin

Suddenly the air is crisp, the leaves are turning orange, and PSLs (Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes) are in bloom. It’s that period between Thanksgiving and Halloween when Canadians get outside to enjoy the beautiful weather and at Pops de Milk HQ we are not immune to this. In fact, we’ve decided October is our favourite […]

South Park Pumpkin Hats

So, I heard a new South Park game is coming out soon and naturally my thoughts went to the pumpkin hats I made four years ago. But when I went to look for them I couldn’t find them! How horrible! But no need to fret because it gave me a reason to revisit the pattern […]

Starfish Pattern Revisit

First I want to express how happy it makes me to know you’re all out there making lovely things with my crochet patterns. I can’t tell you enough how giddy I get when you send me photos or tag me on Instagram and Facebook 🙂 Secondly, I super duper appreciate those of you who have […]

Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant

This custom order from an Etsy customer really pushed me to be creative. When I was initially approached to create the design I hesitated and questioned whether I’d be able to make something like an ancient psychic tandem war elephant, APTWE for short. How would I make the body? The shotgun tusks? The trunk? Everything? […]

Amigurumi Eeyore – Part 4

I am excited because this cute little Eeyore finally has a body! And a tail! It’s been a fun project and I’ve enjoyed breaking it up into manageable parts. I hope the tutorials have helped new crocheters and amigurumists in particular. I’d love to know what you thought of the crochet along and if you’d […]
