It's July already!?!?!

I'm so sorry to those that check my blog only. It's been 3 months since I have posted here. 

 I honestly haven't been crocheting much. I've been playing a lot of tabletop board games. I hope to go at least once a week and I have lots of fun. :)
The last thing I really crochet was for Easter. Sorry! I just realized that never posted about it on this blog. 


But here's the link to the tumblr page if you want to check out more pics. :) http://tmblr.co/Z_x5dt1Dlc0K2

Let's see, some big stuff, I went to Taiwan for 2 weeks. Bought a lot of cute stuff and ate a lot of good food. But the main reason I went was because I had to see my grandma. It has been 7 years since I last saw her! O.o Terrible!!

This long holiday weekend has been filled with family, friends, and fun. And it's not over yet! Yesterday, I went to the Rose Bowl and saw a motorcycle stunt show, hear a concert with a teeny bopper (do they call them that anymore? O.o) and a Beatles Cover band and saw a really great fireworks show. Today I went to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 and loved it!

Taken by me. :)
Tomorrow I'm going to be meeting up with Stephanie from All About Ami and Josephine from A Morning Cup of Jo Creations, plus 18 other crocheters form the area! How cool! It's my first crochet meet up so I don't really know what to do there but gush! hehe

One cool thing, half of us are going to do a handmade pin exchange! I won't give away the surprise so you will have to wait like the others to see the pins I made but they are really quick, easy, and gosh darn kawaii! :) So I hopefully will remember to post pics. :)

I do have an Instagram and Facebook Page, both under Panda8ngel Creations if you want faster pics. :) I haven't figured out how to post to this blog from my phone. Sorry once again!

But I hope you all had a great long Happy Independence Day USA weekend. Stay safe and keep on making! :)

A gift for my favorite author



Made this #crochet #amigurumi #Coyote for the author with my friend, Ruby. It was her book signing ever! We finished just as the questions ended and the signing started. :) The author loved her surprise gift. :) It was a fun day!

Valentines Earrings


Since I didn’t have a Valentines, I decided to give mine to my first love, my mom. :)

She has been asking me to make her earrings but I’ve been acting like I was ignoring her. And since she wasn’t interested in chocolates, I decided to hide 6 pairs of earrings in a box of chocolates. Lol I had to ask her to open the box or they would’ve just sat there. I wish I had taken a pic of her face bc she was so surprised and happy. :)

Crystal beads on interchangeable lever backs.
I saw these earrings at my local bead store and fell in love. They were longer with one more set of beads in a smaller size on each end but that would be too long for my mom so I kept it more our length.


Here are the other 4 pairs of earrings. All used Swarovski crystals and were quite a simple design but I love them and so do my mom! :)

A Horse for Baby Kayley

3 of my friends are having their first babies this year, the year of the horse. And I've been making like crazy but behind on posting, as always. :) 

So, here's the first horse I make this year and some booties for the first of the horse babies that my friends are popping out. :)


My first time meeting this sweet heart I had to bring tributes so I brought a horse personalized with her info and a cute pair of booties that fit perfectly! :) 


This adorable horse amigurumi pattern is FREE from All About Ami. Just click HERE for the free crochet pattern. The little booties are also a Free pattern by Louise Mac.


I hope to remember to post what I gave them for their baby showers soon. :) But you know this panda, it might be a while. hehe

Granny Stitch Sun Hat


Granny Stitch Sun Hat free pattern by My Merry Messy Life. A very cute hat but I used a size 4mm hook and it came out sized for a premie baby so I’ll have another go and probably with different colors. 

It won't go to waste or frogged through. I will donate it to a Neonatal ICU in my area. :)

Crochet Cable Wrist Warmer


I finally tried crochet cabling and I have to say it was pretty easy and beautiful. Here are a pair of wrist warmers I made. I love them! Thank you to All About Ami for introducing them on your blog post. :) HERE is the free pattern by Julee Reeves

I used 3.75mm hook bc my hands are small and Red Heart Soft yarn in turquoise. I love this color. :)
