Hello everyone. This crochet Triceratops is the second in my dinosaur collection, following on from the T-Rex. This one I have to admit is my favourite so far, and has been a winner with all the kids who have so far recieved one.
Hello everyone, today I’m sharing another fabulous Christmas make with you. I initially designed this last year, but didn’t think I would make another one so didn’t write the pattern down. However I was asked to make another one this year, so this time I made certain I record it.
The finished stocking is approx 20 inches long.
Hello everyone. I have a proper chrismassy pattern for you today.
Now before we go any further I do have a confession to make. I don’t like the original Elf on the Shelf. I think he’s a sinister looking little bastard who is probably really good friends with Chucky. However I was asked to make one for a friend’s daughter and I wouldn’t let her down.
I think my finished Elf has the look of the original while avoiding the sinister stare.
Hello everyone, this week I’m sharing another of my patterns with you. When I was first asked to make Blaze I was a little stumped for no other reason than I hadn’t heard of him before. But I have been reliably informed that it’s a cool cartoon and Blaze is a worthy hero. Although there are a lot if peices involved in making the truck it requires only a basic understanding of crochet techniques, so is a great beginner pattern.
Hello everyone, back in 2018 I was asked to make a Crochet Winnie The Pooh. It was inevitable once he was done that I would end up doing more of the 100 Acre Wood characters because they are a great favourite of everyone. My crochet Piglet pattern is simple to follow but looks super cute when finished.
Hello everyone. Back in December last year one of the big movies out for kids was the updated version of The Grinch. A friend of mine wanted a crochet Grinch for her daughter, because her daughter loved the film. However because she is only a little tot, my friend wanted a friendly looking crochet Grinch.
This is the pattern I came up with. He looks more puzzled than scary which is just how I wanted him.
Hello everyone. Can you remember way back in the day when Top Gun first came out? I bloody loved the film even though I’m not a fan of Tom Cruise (it was alway Iceman for me). The main plane in the film was the iconic F-14 Tomcat. I only learnt this fact recently when a friend asked me to make her a crochet fighter jet plane based on the film for her young son.
He loves the film, and knows all about the F-14 so it had to be a convincing crochet fightet jet plane. I’m glad to report he gave the finished plabe his full seal of approval.
Hello everyone. Today I’m sharing my pattern for a crochet race car. As you will have seen by now if you subscribe to my blog for my crochet patterns a vast majority of them are animal based. As such generally appeal to younger children (although I have made dragons, unicorns and elephants for adults too).
I was messaged about a year ago by a male friend of mine. He loved my work, but wanted to order something a bit more grown up and dare I say it a touch more masculine than my usual work. He sent me a picture of a fabulous green racing car (a Ford Focus RS) and asked if I could make it. My first thought was no sodding way! But then I took another look and began breaking the car down into the different panels (it helps having a son who has been car mad from an early age, and loves to share his passion with his mum).
It took a lot of time, effort and ripping back before I got a basic shape I was happy with, and then I was able to play around with the details. The final car looks awesome. And despite having a fair number of component parts is actually quite simple to crochet.
Hello readers. Most of the crochet items I make are either stuffed toys or mini figures of famous people, but every now and again I will make something a bit different. Recently a friend asked if I could make her and her daughter a crochet corset top. One in medium and one in small. I will admit I was a bit apprehensive about this at first because unlike with soft toys size actually matters. Because I needed to make the top on two different sizes I needed a pattern that could easily be sized up or down, alas the few patterns I found were only for one size but gave no clear indication of what sizes they was!

Hello everyone. I love dragons, that is clear from the name of this blog. The first softie I designed myself back in 2016 was a crochet dragon, and the pattern for that dragon is my most popular post to date. However as much as I love that dragon, last year I decided to play around with the design and came up with this gorgeous new style of dragon.
