2020 REWIND

Well, for the whole world, 2020 is such a bad year with the pandemic and its consequences. But as 2 sides of a coin, it also creates opportunities. For me, 2020 is a year of change. Some good, some bad, but I would like to share a few major highlights in my designer career!

I have started my blog and Youtube Channel

As you know, I started to share my amigurumi designs in July 2019, but I never treated designing as my career, just a hobby. But during the lockdown of 2020, when kids are at home only and the financial situation became worse, finally I grabbed enough motivation to start to think seriously about being an amigurumi designer. I want to make money, yes, enough for living from my hobby. And I couldn’t do it without my husband’s support! He encouraged me to come over the fear of failure to start something that I love!

I knew that it was not easy (and it is not), but I have tried my best to build and launch my website and Youtube Channel! There was a lot of work, and overwhelm, and tiring with a twin and a small girl at home, but somehow I managed and have built a routine for myself. So far, since I started the first blog in August, The Ultimate Guide to Amigurumi for beginners, I have created 19 blog posts and 41 Youtube videos. Wow, such a big number to me.

And good thing is that I have learned so much new knowledge and skills during the progress. I had no idea that I could create a landing page or film and edit videos. Such a wonderful learning year!

If you want to start a passion project, go ahead, maybe it will be failed, maybe it will not be perfect, but at least you step out of the comfort zone and try what you want to do. As my mentor said “Worse, you have 0”.

i have designed 37 new patterns in 2020

37 new designs in 2020 is a big number for me! The addition made my life-time number of amigurumi design to 55 in total. The funny thing is, at first, I designed big-sized amigurumi, but then they became smaller, smaller…, from 50-40 cm animals, dropped down to cuddle size, and at the end of the year, only keychain size.

Why? Easy to understand, I had no time. But I need to design something new, it is my desire to pick up yarn and hook and crochet something. And, I am happy to say that, no matter the size small or big, I put my love to any design. I hope you also love them as much as I do.

One important keynote to my career was, I think, I found my style of amigurumi. I want to design the easy and fun amigurumi for busy crocheters, like me, so that they still can enjoy the art of amigurumi crocheting even they don’t have a lot of free time. Also, I want my amigurumi can be used as educational toys for kids to learn from, name of animals, colours…I would love to help children to enrich the imagination while they play with my toys! I have been searching for my style for years, so this was a milestone for me.
