About

Punky Monkeys and beyond...

I have been crafting all my life, but found my true calling in 2008 when I learnt to crochet from videos on YouTube. So when I bought my first Blythe doll (A Simply Thumpty Thump named Zoe) in 2011, I immediately began crocheting for her.

I started off crocheting little tank tops for Zoe, then went on to make hats. I found Blythe's head size is perfect for hats, especially silly ones :P With a background in amigurumi design, I looked at some of my past work and tried to adapt them into Blythe hats - a kind of amigurumi/hat hybrid.

I came up with a few designs - some of them worked, some didn't - but found my niche when I made my first Punky Monkey hat. They proved popular with my fellow Blythe collectors on Flickr, so I decided to open a shop where I could share my creations with other collectors.

I still make Punky Monkey hats today, along with other crazy character hats. I also collab with my Mum, who is a great knitter, and together we make little jumpers for the shop too.

I hope in the future to come up with new designs for hats - my mind is always overflowing with ideas :P

Hi, and welcome to Eriko's Emporium!

My name's Sarah, and I have a love for all things kawaii! I am a big Blythe fan, and most of the items found in my shop are Blythe related. I also love Amigurumi and sewing, and hope to incorporate these passions into my shop too.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

Q: I love your hats, but would like to buy more than one/like it made in a different colour. Do you take commissions?
A: Yes, I welcome commissions! I have many different yarn types and colours - I'm sure I can find something to suit your needs. Please convo me with your request :)

Q: I have an idea for a hat that I have designed myself - would you be willing to make it for me?
A: Absolutely! I welcome commissions of all kinds, and would very much enjoy working with you to make your own special hat a reality :)

Sizing details

Q: Do you make hats for other dolls, apart from Neo Blythe?
A: Yes, I also make for Middie Blythe, Pullip, Dal and Disney Animator. I am also technically able to make hats for any size doll, as long as I have the head measurement. Please convo for details and prices :)

Care instructions

Q: Am I able to wash my hats?
A: Although the yarn I use to make my hats are washing machine washable, I would advise against doing this due to other components of the hats i.e. felt faces and appliqué. I would say you'd be best off lightly cleaning them by hand with a damp cloth

Gift wrapping and packaging

Q: The hat I'm buying is a gift for a friend; are you able to gift wrap it for me?
A: I present all my hats in a clear cellophane bag, together with a brand sticker and Thank-You note card. If you require your hat wrapped further/differently, please contact me and this can be arranged at a small additional cost

Q: How do you package your hats - I'm worried about them getting damaged in the mail...
A: As well as the above mentioned presentation packaging, I post my hats off in roomy, durable bubble-wrap lined envelopes. I never squish hats into a small envelope, and so far I have had no reports of damaged hats on arrival at their new homes :)

Wholesale availability

Q: I would like to buy a large number of your hats for my line of custom dolls/doll clothing company. Do you take wholesale orders?
A: Yep, definitely! I have completed large wholesale orders for doll designers in the past, and would be more than happy to do so again. I can offer a discounted price for bulk orders over 30 pieces - the more you order, the cheaper they get :) Please feel free to convo me if you have any questions!
