Tag Archives: amigurumi

etsyvancouver

We will once again be a vendor at the Etsy Vancouver Market: Made in Canada event on Sept 24 and 25! This will be our 3rd time participating and we couldn’t be more excited! If you ever attended one of the previous events as a customer or vendor you will know exactly how we feel. This market is one of our most favourite markets to attend because of the atmosphere, vendors and lovely people that come and shop.

This year the Etsy Vancouver Market will take place over two days and is located in the beautiful Pipe Shop building in North Vancouver. So now you have two days to come visit over 90+ vendors and make an awesome day of it. There will be swag bags given away again this year to the first 50 shoppers each day and a scavenger hunt to win an amazing gift basket filled with handmade goodies.  You will have a chance to win one of our cute canvas tote bags in the gift basket or one of our limited edition button pins for this years market in some of the swag bags.

You scream, I scream, we all scream for … ice-cream Jumbo Ice-cream Bunnies!
It has been more than a year since we first released our popular ice-cream bear keychains and we thought it was time to add to the collection. We love bunnies and so it was fitting that we created ice-cream bunnies but with a twist…in a kawaii jumbo size!

Big enough to hug and handmade with lots of care. It’ll surely make any room extra cute!
For our May limited edition amigurumi product Marissa created a coconut rainbow sprinkle ice-cream bunny. She wanted to use white yarn for the ice-cream so that the rainbow sprinkles would stand out so she looked into her yarn stash and found a super fluffy skein of white yarn that she used for the white amigurumi sheeps. Then she chose some extra vibrant colours of embroidery floss for the sprinkles. The finished product is an extra fluffy and soft amigurumi ice-cream bunny.

The other two flavours she created were classic strawberry and mint chocolate chip. Marissa loved experimenting with different types of yarn for the ice-cream. It gives each ice-cream bunny a different kind of look and feel.

All our ice-cream bunnies are now available in the shop just in time for Summer. We also have more things in the works so stay tuned! To keep up to date, please follow us on IG (@momomintsshop) for shop updates and your daily dose of cuteness. And who knows…maybe mini amigurumi ice-cream bunny keychains will make an appearance too!

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a well rested and lovely Holidays! 2015 was such an amazing year for us from our first wholesale order from Kelly of Little Blue Canoe to being featured on Etsy’s IG feed.  Thank you for your constant support!  We’ve already started dreaming up and planning ideas to make 2016 even better!

To start off the year we have an awesome announcement for you all. As you can tell from the title of this blog post…our amigurumi stuffed keychains are on display right now at the RESOBOX World Amigurumi Exhibition in NY!  Already in its second year, this exhibition showcases amigurumi from talented artists all around the world. This year the theme is crocheted culture. Where artists would create amigurumi pieces that showed the culture of where they are from such as cultural clothing, national colours, landscape etc.

For this exhibition we sent some of our orca whales. Orca whales are often associated with the West Coast of BC.

Orca whale plush keychains - inspired the lovely whales in our local waters in British Columbia, Canada. Have you seen them stocked in our Etsy shop along with our blue whales?
We also sent some of our Mint Mint bunnies, ice-cream bears and fluffy bunnies as well.
If you are in the area be sure to check out this wonderful exhibition. Imagine a room filled wall to wall with amigurumi. And if you spot something you like you can purchase it! Wish we could visit the exhibition in person!

Please feel free to share pics with us if you spot our amigurumi there hanging out with other awesome amigurumi friends.
