Last year was a very busy year for us for custom orders. So much so that we are still trying to work through our backlog. Thank you for all your support! We are so grateful for all the requests that we receive. One of our latest custom orders was to create custom Ja & Ju amigurumi stuffed toys for Julie! She is the very talented creator of Jubes Comic Blog and also from Vancouver! We’ve seen her work on Instagram and just adore her style. She also recently launched her own online shop of custom hand drawn mugs on Etsy!
As with all custom orders, it’s really fun seeing how a 2D drawing gets turned into a 3D object. Sometimes we work with the customer to create the sketch and design based on their vision but for this order we got a lovely doodle from Julie! Isn’t it cute?! I was so excited to finally start working on this custom order.
I started working on Ju (the bunny) first. Crocheting with cream yarn like the Momobunnies and finishing it up by embroidering on the mouth.
Next up I worked on creating Ja (the monkey). It was the first time I tried crocheting a monkey using two different yarn colours. I then added a small tail and embroidered on a smiling mouth on Ja. I love how the embroidered details really made it more special.
I was really pleased how this custom order turned out! Thank you Julie for giving us the opportunity to create your very own Ja & Ju amigurumi stuffed toys.
