I have two new patterns for you this month, and both feature hedgehogs! I made the larger one using the 16 inch pillow size that I typically do. However, when I got done, I decided to make a smaller one as a toy. I AM IN LOVE! I plan to make more of these in difference sizes and colors. I'm also thinking about taking some of my other pillow patterns and making toy patters for them too.
Both patterns are available on this site, Ravelry, and Etsy.
Time to get hookin' for the holidays! To help you out, I've put another pattern bundle together. This bundle is for 4 of my holiday-themed pillow patterns and includes an Elf, Santa, a Reindeer, and a Snowman. The snowman and reindeer work up fairly quickly so you can have those for your couch just in time for the festivities. This bundle is a $5 savings off of the normal price.
You can pick it here on Etsy.
Last year as I was working on Frankie, I knew I wanted to make his bride as well. I sketched her out but time ran out and my attention turned to other holidays. This year I knew I had to make her come to life.
I think they are a handsome couple. If you'd like to make your own bride - or Frankie, you can find the patterns in my store on this site. I also have them posted on Etsy, Ravelry, and Craftsy.
I love Halloween. I love dressing up (why, yes, I STILL dress up), making costumes for the kids, and seeing what everyone else is dressed as. Going around and seeing how everyone has decked out their homes is a blast too. Oh, and the free candy, who can forget that?
A few years back I decided to start making holiday-themed throw pillows and Halloween was one of the first places I started. Pumpkin Jack was a logical place since he's reversible and works for Thanksgiving too. This year I think I may add a bride for Frankie, so that pattern will be available next month.
In the meantime, it's mid-August so it's time for you to start working on your couch creatures. To help you get started, I'm offering a bundle sale. You get all four patterns above for the price of three! Spooky, eh?
The deal is available in both my Etsy and Ravelry stores, so get hookin'!
What else is there to say?
Free pattern here. YUM!
THIS . . . IS . . . ADORABLE . . . if I do say so myself.
I've been wanting to write a pattern for a pig pillow for a while, but didn't want to go with my traditional round pillow. I was shopping for pillow forms the other day and a bolster pillow form fell off of the shelf and hit me right on top of my head. No joke. You can say the idea for a bolster pillow hit me like a ton of bricks. Fortunately it was more of a fiber-stuffed-soft pillow that hit me.
I got home and started right away. I tell ya, I got lots of giggles working on this one. And I had fun dressing him/her up with different bow and scarf options. Just check out these pics below! CUTE, I tell ya! And OMG - look at that tail!
If you'd like to make your own Piggy Pillow, you can purchase the pattern in my shop on this site. I also have the pattern for sale on Craftsy, Ravelry, and Etsy.
Happy Hooking! OINK!
Introducing my newest crochet pillow pattern - LION! He was SO much fun to make and he's just as soft as you can imagine. The fringing of the hair takes a while (what is my deal with hair lately anyway?) but it's so worth it in the end.

By now you've probably figured out that I LOVE making stuff for my kiddos and nieces. I have one niece - the youngest - that will not be caught in public without her tutu and jewelry. She's a little princess for sure (compared to my T-Rex niece), so I knew I had to create something special for her. She and her family just moved into their first home and I wanted to make something to go on her bed. My goal was to get it to her for Christmas, but I fell behind schedule. Why?
So . . . much . . . HAIR!
I think it took me a month to make the hair. Well, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I did think I'd never feel like I was going to be done.
I *may* have gotten a bit carried away, but I love the effect of all those multi-sized spirals. They are layered and twisted and all sorts of hairy goodness.
See what I mean? I wish I had this much hair.
What you cannot see in the picture in that the pink yarn has some sparkle to it. SWOON! I can see this in Purple, in Blue, In Green . . . I can also see changing up the hair to match your little princess' hair. So many options!

Brrrrr! The weather this week in Texas has been COLD! Now, I know what you guys up north are thinking - that we are a bunch of whimps down here in the south. You know what? You are correct! The thing that would make these temperatures better is if there was snow. At least then you'd get the day off, cozy up by the fireplace, and watch movies with the family. You could also send the kids (who are already bored 1.5 days into Christmas break) outside to build snowmen.
Well, since we can't build a real snowman, we can at least crochet one! Last year I made this guy after Christmas. It was cold outside and the decorations were already packed away, and the house seemed so empty after havng holiday cheer dripping for every surface of the house. Since it was cold (and yes - no snow) I made this guy to cheer me up. It worked! Not only can he hang around on your sofa until early March, he's also a breeze to make. You can get the pattern at any of the links below:

But I promise I am not contagious.
Rudolph is a pillow pattern I designed last year during the holiday season, and he seems to be a favorite around here. He works up quickly so there's plenty of time to whip him up and add him to your collection. You can get the pattern here.
