I was looking for something different to make the other day and I had all of this light pink rug yarn someone had given me. I thought, “I have made all of these animals. How about a people?” I looked on my free crochet pattern sites. (just do an internet search for ‘free crochet patterns’ . You can also do a ‘free pattern__’ search on Pinterest too.) Well, you see the result! I found amigurumibb.com! Vanja is an especially talented designer. She also teaches you how to create your own patterns with all sorts of principles of spheres and ovals to make animals or people. I haven’t gotten that adventurous yet! The first picture is KK made from Vanja’s BB doll pattern.
The second picture, (below) is Moira, the redhaired, warrior woman! She has a bow and a quiver full of arrows! I have a love of all things Celtic so, I had to make this doll! The pattern is also on amigurumibb.com. Vanja’s blog is also on Word Press. I will try and link it to here! I found that I can make dolls eyes with polymer clay (my other crafty passion!). So Moira is sporting eye ball beads! For ordering your own custom doll, email me at email@example.com or on facebook! Don’t forget the Honey Craft Market THIS Saturday December 5th on the square in Woodstock, IL! I will have all of my crocheted items there! Coming soon…an Etsy shop!!
Here are the snowflakes I crocheted yesterday and this morning. I think they turned out pretty good for the first try! Unfortunately, two other patterns I tried didn’t work out. I followed the pattern exactly and they looked like parts were missing! Oh, well.
My attempt to create a cloud with raindrops! Some have said that it looks like a sculpture. I had an idea and this is what I have come up with. I actually should have made one with snowflakes…hmmm, maybe that should be my next one! We had a huge snowstorm the day before yesterday. Here in a suburb of Chicago got about a foot of snow! It ended up being 5 degrees over night last night. Brrrrrrr! This is January weather in November!
I think the next one I make will have interchangeable raindrops or snowflakes so someone can change it with the seasons. As always, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I am sharing with you my earring collection! I have crocheted all of these earrings and much more besides. For instance, the small variegated blue flowers also come in pink, purple and an aqua blue. The tear drop shaped earrings are also available in a red (like the large flowers), a teal, a teal variegated, a variegated gray/ dark gray and a blue (like the small blue flowers). The large yellow and red flowers also come in pink and a multi lavender/ dark purple/ light green/ olive green combo type. i will try and get pictures of the other shades up soon! The wire and blue also come in a wire/ brown and gold. I also have necklace/earring/bracelet sets! These are crocheted using a 1.5-1.65mm steel crochet hook and embroider thread. The wire ones use jewelry wire and slightly larger hook, like the cuff bracelets. See, I don’t just make hats and afghans! If you would like to contact me, please email me at email@example.com. I am also found on Facebook under Cabin Crochet Creations by Tanya Joy.
I found a new pattern for ear warmers and cable fingerless gloves! I am having a ball making them. It is challenging and rewarding at the same time. I have been making amigurumi for a while and it is a nice change to make something else for a while. I made a cute little sheep for my friend who is grieving her Grandma’s passing. I know it didn’t help but it was nice to see her smile a little. I also made a turkey for Thanksgiving, which is rapidly approaching. It is a very dreary, gray day with rain. At least it isn’t snowing yet! Have a blessed day!
I have, in my jewelry line, cuff style bracelets. They are crocheted with jewelry wire and different color beads. I use a 3.25mm steel crochet hook to crochet the wire. It feels a lot different than crocheting yarn! I also make bracelets that are not cuff style. I don’t have any pictures of them yet. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to have any of these unique bracelets for your own!
I would like to share with you one of the many slouchy hats I have available for purchase. This one is multi colored with cream as the base color. matching mittens are available, see multi mittens. This type of slouchy hat is $20 USD. I also have solid color hats for $15 USD.
This is a large brimmed specialty hat. I only have this one available right now. It is gorgeous. The colors in the hat are muted bright pink, blue, orange and tan along with a gold metallic thread running throughout. This particular hat style is $30 USD.
This is my favorite hat. It is a solid San Diego blue made from Lion brand Hometown USA yarn. It is a regular beanie type hat. I think the rosette makes the hat special! This hat or one ordered to be made just like it, is $20 USD.
These mittens are made from an ice blue, Lion Brand Homespun yarn. Unlined mittens are $12 USD and lined mittens with fleece are $15 USD. These mittens have a matching slouchy hat, just like the first hat shown here.The hat and mitten set (unlined) is $30 USD. The set with lined mittens is $32 USD. (all mittens shown are made from the same materials and have the same pricing as described here.
