Amigurumi Gypsy Doll (PDF Pattern)

AMIGURUMI GYPSY DOLL 2016 Toma Creations 1

‘Dolls from around the world’ have a new member, a Gypsy Doll 🙂 . I love gypsy ladies dressing up, they are so colourful and eye catching. Whenever we visit Plovdiv, my husband’s birthtown, we always take a round trip with a bus into the gypsy neighborhood, it looks so different, ‘culturally’, like it is out of place and time.

Amigirumi Matryoshka – Russian Nesting Doll (PDF pattern)

AMIGURUMI MATRYOSHKA 2015 Toma Creations

This is my third version of Matryoshka, and it is obvious that i’m addicted to these dolls. I love them so much because they are a reminder of my motherland, Russia.  It is funny, i was mentioning to my husband how much i love Cyprus which felt like i was kind of betraying where I come from and he told me, with his calm and reasonable voice: ‘But this is normal, Russia is your motherland and Cyprus is your homeland’ which is sooo true. I’m proud of my motherland and my past and I love its beautiful green plains, forests, lakes and rivers, culture and traditions but i also love my new home; summer, sun, watermelons, beach, my husband and our cats…

Anyway, let’s get back to the pattern. With this pattern you will be able to make three variations; plain body with embroidery, body with stripes and body with apron. By using different colours and embroidery styles (all provided in the pattern) the sky is your limit. It is an easy pattern with a few tricks for which detailed written instructions, photos and graphs are all provided.

Amigurumi Balinese Doll (PDF Pattern)

BALINESE DOLL Toma Creations - 2015 3

Say hello to Ni Ketut Lintang, an amigrumi Balinese doll.

This doll is made in memory of my trip to Bali for yoga teacher training, a dedication to Alicia, an amazing yoga teacher, to all my fellow sweet yogis and a reminder of celebrating my 27th birthday on this amazing island while going through an experience that would shift and shape my life after this trip.

I cannot express in words the changes this amazing experience has had on my life, on all levels. I could talk for ages about philosophy, concept, lifestyle, perception etc etc but the one and most important thing that I’ve learned is that wisdom can only be gained by experience, no matter how much i might learn or know the best things in my life are the joys and the lessons. Both can be gained only with actions, experimentation and an open mind.
