My latest pattern is Baby Devil. I hope you like him.
If done with sport category yarn and a 2.5 mm hook it is approx. 5.5” (14 cm) tall when sitting and 7” (18 cm) when standing. If done with worsted weight yarn and an F hook, it is 14 inches long (not including tail), and the head is nearly 7 inches wide, not including ears.
Baby Devil is available for purchase here.
Happy birthday my little sweatheart ♥
Little guy from the pattern that I got to test for the upcoming book. Designed by Josephine Wu from A Morning Cup of Jo Creations. I had so much fun, the pattern is easy to follow and the result is a very charming little bear.
To get the book printed we have to raise $7,500 by September 29th. You can find out more about the book and the project at: http://www.indiegogo.com/zoomigurumi
Zoomigurumi – a crochet book by Amigurumipatterns.net is featuring 15 cute amigurumi patterns by 12 designers. My little Johnny the Monkey is not just in the book, he made it to the cover page! I’m very excited about it! The book is available in presale now!
It will be a soft cover book of 72 pages in full colour including large pictures and clear written out instructions of all the amigurumi you want to make. The book is available both as ebook or as a printed edition. As a little extra there is also a cute tote bag that is perfect for storing your yarn!
It’s a Fixed Funding campaign. Find out more at http://www.indiegogo.com/zoomigurumi.
This chair cover is very easy to make, although a bit time consuming. If you have a chair that would need some make over you can give it a try. You can really cheer up the space if you make 4 pieces in different colors (that’s what I intend to do).
Anyway, here is how I made it:
Rnd 1: Chain 72, sc in second ch from hook and in next 69 chs, 2 sc in last ch, working back across foundation ch, sc in next 70 sts, 2 sc in last st. (144)
Rnds 2 – 40: Sc in each st around (144)
Rnd 41: (Sl st in next st, sc in next st, (hdc, dc) in next st, ch 1, (dc, hdc) in next st, sc in next st, sl st in next st) around.
That’s it. If you decide to make it let me know how it turned out
Some wonderful days are behind. I hope even more wonderful are yet to come We’ve been travelling a bit, visiting my sister’s family in Germany in order to meet the new member of our family, their adorable baby girl Milla. They live in Schwarzwald area, where the air is so fresh and the birds are singing all day long. Beautiful homes and gardens make it a pleasure to go for a walk. It’s a place for hang-gliding, hiking and bicycling. Mia tried for the first time to ride a horse and she’s quite talented.
Then we took 6 hrs drive to Paris. We visited Disneyland and some other popular sites in the City of Light. I enjoyed… Everything is so charming about France. The people, the language, the food…..
Easter Goose Eggs
We were very busy today. This year we used regular food coloring instead of natural dyes which I actually prefer. I love the marble effect!
I bought at the flea market 2 lamps with not so attractive floral print shades. I wanted to play, experiment and see what I will come up with. I used thick white yarn and just weaved it around the spokes. I didn’t use any glue but I think I might use it with the second lamp to anchor yarn strands and prevent them from slipping. I’ll try to decorate it further with some pom poms but here is what I ended up with for now.
This is how it looked before makeover and how I weaved the yarn around the spokes.
I’ll post some images of the lamp with pom poms once I make them.
Our Halloween decoration.
Hair clips I made for Mia. I thought they would match with her new dress. She now wants a pair in each color:)
To make the clips you will need:
- some scraps of cotton yarn, sport weight (pink, of course:)
- hook Nr. 2.5
- a nice button
- tapestry needle, a little bit of thread to sew the button and scissors
- metal clip (I reused the old clip)
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
st – stitch
Rnd – Round
Instructions to make them:
With magic adjustable ring and cotton yarn:
Rnd 1: 5 sc into the center of ring (5)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (10)
Rnd 3: [(Sc, hdc, dc, ch1, dc, hdc, sc) in next st, sl st in next st] around (40)
Fasten off and weave in yarn ends. Sew button on top cener of the flower and glue it (or sew) to the clip.
That’s it, easy and ready to use in 15 minutes.
