Monster camping.. (FP)

This is Marvin. He goes hiding when halloween is near, because he doesn’t want to scare anyone. So if you meet him in the forest, remember; he’s very nice and if you’re kind to him at his camp site, he’ll wave you over and he’ll share his marshmallows with you. The pattern is free, and […]

Bookworm.. (FA)

For a bookworm like me a bookworm like this littly guy seemed like the perfect match. He’s so cute! He’s not particularly difficult to make, although I ran into a litte hickup or two along the way. Mostly it was my own fault and it’s what can happen when you don’t use the materials listed […]

Small hazelnuts..

Fall is just around the corner and it’s time to find and collect the hazelnuts.I wanted to make a pattern that’s close to what I can find in nature. The hazelnuts are made from the top down in cotton nr 8 or similar, measures approx. 3 cm / 1,2″. The leaves measures approx. 4 cm […]

Stitches and techniques..

I began describing how to make the stitches and taking pictures. But.. it’s so much easier to understand with a video and I can’t do that. Most creative people work best with visuel information, so I found a pile of links to videos where it’s shown and explained better than I can do in writing. […]

Crochet from scratch..

There are so many amigumis that look cute, scary, funny and weird. Btw.. what does that word mean? An amigurumi is small stuffed toys either knitted or crocheted. It’s a Japanese thing as far as I know and it can be something from your home, dolls, figures, characters from movies or games, animals or something […]

Xenomorph.. (FA)

Something’s there.. Something is lurking in the shadows.. Better be careful. You never know what comes out. Maybe it’s something dangerous.. What IS that? There’s a lot of teeth and claws on that one. If we stand still, maybe it won’t see us.. Roaarhh!! OH NO! Run for your life! Look at those claws.. It’s […]

Nerdy gift.. (FA)

Found this little gem in my search for something that could be a “nice and nerdy gift”: the Tardis. I made it a little differently but it turned out ok. I’ve never seen a Dr. Who episode so I don’t really know anything about it, but from the little pieces and quotes I’ve picked up […]

Baymax (FA)

Baymax is the best! From the moment I saw Big Hero 6, I wanted a Baymax. One of my favorite moments is when he learns the fist bump. The blalalala-sound gets me every time. Anyway.. The pattern is in Spanish but phew.. there’s also an English version. He was easy to make and I chose […]

Why crochet?

What makes a craft desirable? Is it the tools needed or the medium to be worked with? Who wakes up one morning and thinks: “I want to turn wood into fabolous bowls!” Where does the idea come from? Crafting has always been a part of peoples culture and the skills have been given from the […]

Rooster the chef (FA)

This feathery family are just adorable. I made the tail differently on each adult. Pattern-style on papa and each feather separately on mama. I made the feet a little different (easier for me) and I didn’t have black pearls but maybe this breed of chicken has blue eyes. Made with 2,5 mm hook and the […]
