Cthulhu Dice Bag Pattern Available Now

I have finally finished my newest pattern and it’s now available on Etsy and on Ravelry. The pattern is fully written out and comes with over 60 full colour photos, so check it out!

I’m very happy I’ve finally finished another pattern, it’s been way too long. Let’s hope the next one won’t have as much of a long wait before it sees the light of day!

Cthulhu Dice Bag

I recently bought a set of Cthulhu Dice and was very excited to receive the green and yellow version (as it said it would ship out a random colour and I really wanted something green), but since the game doesn’t come with any box or bag but simply in a blister pack, I immediately set to task to crochet a Cthulhu shaped bag to hold my game!

It turned out just big enough to hold all items, but I’ll try to make one slightly bigger so there’s a bit of wiggle room and I’m planning to make it a purchasable pattern in my online shop, so keep your eyes peeled!

Niffler All Done

Took about a month to finish this little guy, but he’s finally done! He’s just a prototype, but I’m quite happy with the result.

I’ll write out the pattern soon and then work one with the actual yarn intended for Niffler, which is a fuzzy towelling yarn to make him cuddlier.

He’ll hopefully become my first new pattern in a looooong time!

Well, that’s more like it…

Rocket has arms! Two of them!

Now on to the tail. I hope I can make him stand up and balance with his tail, but as he’s getting quite heavy, I’m not super hopeful. We shall see!

I need an arm. Honestly, I really need it!

I’ve finally managed to work some more on perhaps my largest project to date, the wonderful Rocket! He has both legs and one arm now.

He’s coming along so well. I completely removed both his arms and did them all over again because his feet and legs turned out so much better than the first version of his arms and I needed them to match.
I think this is one of the most important things when working on a new freehand work, you have to be willing to completely unravel and start over again.

I’m hopeful I’ll be able to finish the second arm and start on his jumpsuit before Halloween!

The Mighty Thor

Finished another amigurumi! This time it’s the mighty Thor. 😀

My mom asked me to make her a Thor doll to cuddle, so I did.

I am now officially settled in London, UK. The move went well, still waiting for a few boxes to come from Canada (especially the ones that have my yarn in them) but I’m already feeling quite at home here. Having lots of fun, meeting new awesome people and enjoying the city tremendously.

Hope you’re having as great a time as I am!

Love and chocolate for all!

Hey Dolly!

I’ve been working on another new pattern lately. This time it’s for an amigurumi style dress-up doll. I’ve completed a few dolls and am somewhat happy with the pattern, though I will probably change the limbs and body before I finalize the patterns since I’d like the doll to be able to stand up on their own, which they can’t really do yet. So there’s still work to be done. However, I’ve finished five base dolls and have clothed three of them so far. I will finish the other two before re-working the body and limb patterns into something I might be more happy with.

So far I’ve made dolls for the two boys I used to nanny (twins, four years old now) and for a friend’s friend who is struggling with some medical issues right now.

I have two more base dolls ready to go, just need to decide what to do with them. I have a few ideas. 😀

I just uploaded the first crochet lessons on how to make amigurumi/crochet in the round. I hope you enjoy!

Free Friday – Crochet Pattern

Hello my sweeties! Here I am again with another Friday pattern feature. These patterns are not created by me, but by other very skilled and creative crochet artists who offer some of their hard work for free use!

Today I selected an adorable little lucky charm, Onni the Beckoning Cat:
