And Now On Instagram: Crochet Cat!

My aunt loves dogs. And she loves knitting them for the local pet shelter. They are sold to raise money for the shelter. So when it was her birthday I ofcourse decided to make her a cat! Because I'm like that. Rebel me!
Here's the English pattern - enjoy!

And now on Instagram: Crochet Turtle!

Adorable and a lot of fun to make! It was quite a challenge to find yarn colors in my stash that didn't clash too much, but when they were dug up the fun could begin!

You can buy the pattern here, or the finished product here!

And Now On Instagram: Crochet Dutch Lion!

A friend of mine married a Dutch man and moved to the Netherlands. She received a welcome basket of the women of our local church community. My contribution was this orange lion with red-white-blue pants: Orange is the name of our royal family and red-white-blue are the colors of the Dutch flag. I made this dapper little guy using this pattern. My least favorite part was inserting all the yarn strands for the hair - quite a laborious task! My favorite part, however, was giving him his little afro haircut afterwards! I included the before pictures of this makeover!

And Now On Instagram: Crochet Polar Bear!

I love this smooth lined minimalistic polar bear crochet design. Oodles of character in his little face and sturdy enough to stand on his own two feet. I haven't made him a scarf yet, but I certainly will!

And Now On Instagram: Crochet Applique Hearts!

Up until quite recently I was a strictly acrylic yarn crocheter. Mostly because of costs - acrylic is the cheapest yarn out there! But my friend convinced me to try cotton yarn and so I did. I really like the solid feel and sturdiness of the finished piece and the way a flat piece keeps its shape. I haven't made anything other than appliques with the cotton yarn, but who knows? Now this cotton door is opened to me a whole new world is waiting to be explored!

Too busy to crochet? Buy them here!

And Now On Instagram: Crochet Baby Blanket!

Yes, indeed: a blanket for a baby boy! It's the first baby blanket I ever made and I loved the soft materials I worked with - it was soft acrylic yarn for babies. That's the good stuff!
Here's the pattern for the blanket, the "gift wrap" & bow were my own invention!

And Now On Instagram: Crochet Bride Doll!

I made this cute couple for my friend who was getting married:

Crochet Bride and Groom

I first made the bride doll, complete with dress, and then the groom. Unfortunately the groom turned out a lot smaller than the bride and since the groom's clothes were a lót of work (that tuxedo was quite a challenge since I didn't have a pattern and had to make it up as I went along...) I decided to redo the bride instead. And so I am left with a lovely bride doll ánd her bridal gown!

I don't have the link to a pattern for you - this was very much an improvised project all the way - but this doll ís for sale here!

And now on Instagram: Crochet Baby Blanket!

I made this sweet and very soft baby blanket for a dear friend's baby girl. This (completely free!!) pattern was used. It was a great way to try out different stitches and combine colors. But my goodness, it was a lot of work! I don't have a lot of photos of it, but I dó have the proof that this gift was appreciated (and is used!), which definitely makes all the time put in worth while!

And now on Instagram: Crochet Minion!

My cool nephew Pablo is a great minion fan! I made this little (big!) guy for him and he gave me a great impression of the funny minion speak! I particularly liked making his little pants with the (functional!!) pocket. The whole yellow guy can be taken apart, fun!!

I'm not really sure which pattern I used, but this one is also great!
