Hello World!


Hajime mashite! It’s nice to meet you all! My name is Jackie, and I’m a crochet artist. I’ve been crocheting since 2013, and haven’t been able to stop since (one might even say I’m ‘hooked’ on it). I love to make cute nerdy things, so you’ll often see me making characters from anime, video games, and more. On this website I plan to blog about my crochet projects, publish some free patterns for all you other makers out there, and most important of all, I plan to have fun!

Lucas – Super Smash Saturday 35

Well, here we are! We’ve made it to the final character of my Super Smash Saturday series, Lucas!

It seems like I just started this event series not too long ago, but it’s already been 35 weeks! It’s been a blast to make all of these characters, and I think it helped me round out my style a bit more. I also tried out and learned some new techniques!

Thanks to everyone for sticking with me through this! If anyone has any suggestions for another event series like this, let me know! I am planning to make the next one a real crochet-along, providing the patterns as we go.

Jigglypuff – Super Smash Saturdays 34

Its Jigglypuff! Can’t believe there’s only one left to go now!

The last character on the roster is Lucas!

This event is a CAL/weekly challenge, so if anyone wants to join in and create your own version of Lucas for next Saturday you are more than welcome to! Use #supersmashtokyo to share your projects and tag me on Instagram @tokyodragon.crochet

Captain Falcon – Super Smash Saturday 33

Its Captain Falcon! Only two more to go on the roster before its complete.

This is the character my younger sister always plays as, and she would continually move spam with falcooooooon punch!

The next character is Jigglypuff!

Olimar – Super Smash Saturday 32

Today’s character for Super Smash Saturday is Olimar! Olimar is from the Pikmin games, and is of course a playable character in the Super Smash Bros games.

I’ve only played one pikmin game before, and it was fun from what I remember!

Like most things I make, I started off with a sketch! Here is what I drew for Olimar:

Pattern making and designing is one of my favorite things, and it’s always a good feeling when a project comes out just how I imagined it.

I also had some fun taking the photos, and I experimented with some background props!

Next up is Captain Falcon!

This event is a CAL/weekly challenge, so if anyone wants to join in and create your own version of Captain Falcon for next Saturday you are more than welcome to! Use #supersmashtokyo to share your projects and tag me on Instagram @tokyodragon.crochet

R.O.B. – Super Smash Saturday 31

It’s the final 5! Making robotic shapes with crochet can be a challenge, but all in all I think I achieved what I was going for. Crocheting in the back loops only on some rounds helps to achieve a sort of edge to the shape.

Next up is Olimar!

This event is a CAL/weekly challenge, so if anyone wants to join in and create your own version of Olimar for next Saturday you are more than welcome to! Use #supersmashtokyo to share your projects and tag me on Instagram @tokyodragon.crochet

Toon Link – Super Smash Saturday 30

For today’s character, Toon Link, I decided to make a redesign of the Link I made earlier on in this event series!

The mini master sword is actually from a necklace that I bought at a convention not too long ago! It also came with a sheath, which is very cool.

The next character up on the list is R.O.B.

Wario – Super Smash Saturday 29

Alright, the countdown is on for the end of Super Smash Saturdays! We have only 6 characters left on the roster! Today we have Wario! I pretty much never play as this character in the Super Smash Bros games, but he was fun to make, I love his weird mustache!

One of the most fun (and also kind of weird) games I’ve played is the WarioWare: Smooth Moves game for the Wii! It’s a game where you complete a bunch of random mini-games in quick succession, with different ways to hold the Wii controller. If you ever get the chance to play it, you definitely should check it out.

The next character up on the list is Toon Link! Since I’ve already done Link, I’m either going to make a new, updated version of Link, or I’ll crochet Sheik instead.

This event is a CAL/weekly challenge, so if anyone wants to join in and create your own version of Toon Link or Sheik for next Saturday you are more than welcome to! Use #supersmashtokyo to share your projects and tag me on Instagram @tokyodragon.crochet

Bowser – Super Smash Saturday 28

Here we are, back to our regularly scheduled Super Smash Saturdays! We are on the last row of the character roster, I can’t believe how fast time has gone, this event is nearly over!

The character for today is Bowser. Most people are familiar with this character, the antagonist in the Mario games. Even though he’s technically a villain, he is still a lovable character.

Without further ado, here is Bowser! I gave him his wrist bracelets, complete with spikes, and also a nice fluffy mohawk.

The next character up on the list is Wario!
