ScootScootXtine

I’m constantly surprised and comforted this show is for kids.

Your work is adorable! Serious kudos for talent, I do have a question though, do you perhaps have an etsy or sell your creations? If not totally understandable, I just know some people who would absolutely love them.

wow, TWO questions in one day!

Thank you! I have a lot of fun making new dolls. I do have an Etsy shop. I use the proceeds to make the monthly payments for my scooter - which was the inspiration for the name scootscootxtine.

The Etsy shop is here, though it’s not super-updated… I mainly work off of custom orders at this point. They’re really the most fun for me too.

I post a lot of new things I’m working on on my facebook page and I get a lot of custom requests there. Haven’t posted a lot lately, finished law school, studied for and then took the bar, then moved and got married - big summer. So I’m just getting around to unpacking all my yarn!

Anyway, once again a much longer response than your question really needed so sorry about that. Thanks again for your note! I’m happy to answer any more questions or talk about order ideas, etc. 

shame the boober couldn't be knitted because I haven't learned how to crochet just yet - otherwise I'd ask you if you'd sell the pattern - he's beautiful though you do amazing work

Hi! Thank you so much! You’re officially my first question :)

First off, I highly recommend crocheting if you want to make dolls, animals, amigurumi etc. I started with knitting awhile ago, but got frustrated by the limitations of it. Granted, I never learned how to circle knit or read intricate patterns — probably because I found crochet! If you’re looking to learn, I tell everybody to use the book Happy Hooker by the Stitch n’ Bitch people. After many failed attempts, that book is what finally taught me how to crochet, along with a few youtube videos.

BUT ANYWAY, you didn’t ask my advice on how to learn crochet! I get asked every now and then for my patterns… which tells me I should probably start having patterns! Since I mostly make custom orders, I usually just make it up as a go along. Every now and then that makes things tricky when someone asks for something I’ve made in the past, but I’ve managed more or less. Now that law school is over, hopefully I’ll have more time for making proper patterns!

Thank you again for your note! I have a lot of fun making these guys.
