My New Passion

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! 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 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 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!!

I crochet. A lot. I make just about everything you would need if you lived in a cabin in the woods. Not plates and an ax but all the soft stuff. Hats, mittens and scarves. Blankets and shawls, too. I haven't made a pillow yet but I do make dolls, stuffed animals and jewelry. I am inspired by our pioneering ancestors who had to make almost everything they needed. I'd like to get back to that. It is an antidote for our microwave, I-want-it-now society. So, browse and if you like something and want it made special, just for you, please email me or put your order in the comments. Thank you!
