Big Puppy!

Hello friends,

I just had to give you the sneak peek at the big puppy! I worked on him late into the night and then got up early today to work some more. Oh! I love him so. I've decided to name the pattern, "Cuddle Me Puppy".  He's a great cuddle size. Approximately 12 inches when sitting and about 18 inches all stretched out.

You can name your puppy anything you want to, I named this guy "Happy" because I get happy just looking at him. I love amigurumi!

I'm working more on the written pattern today... I don't know when it'll be finished though, there's still lots to do. I am enjoying this pattern so much and I can't wait to give it to you!

Those little ones in the picture are on the way too. I actually started off with the tiny bear, tweaked the pattern too much and ended up with a miniature puppy which then inspired the big puppy, lol Yup, that's usually how I roll around here. One leads to another and another :)

Have a wonderful day, see you soon...

Updates! Wonderful Yarny Things and Health Issues


Happy Saturday everyone! I have some updates for you.

Back in April I was working on the tiny jointed bear pattern, my little Berry Bear that fits inside the strawberry pouch (the pouch is already available here).

It was supposed to be published by now but life took a turn! I got super sick and even spent time in the hospital. I've actually been sick since September 2016. I spent 2 moths in the hospital at the end of last year. It was a mystery then, whatever it was attacked my liver, spleen, heart and lungs. It was a scary time for me and my family. Although I did let people know I was ill, I didn't talk too much about all the scary things publicly as we had no idea what it even was. The doctors were stumped.
I came home in Dec, starting feeling good in Jan.. felt a bit sick in March then April it hit me again like a ton of bricks. I was admitted to hospital on May the 8th and diagnosed on the 11th with ulcerative colitis. This is brutal auto immune disease with no cure. I'm still learning about it.
I'm on good medications right now and each day I feel better and better! I'm thinking positive thoughts all the time and believing for remission. Remission is possible!
Today is a good day :)


Anyway, the other night I started crocheting again! Feels awesome.

I was testing the bear pattern when I tweaked the head too much. In the end I thought the head looked like a puppy. A cute one too so I decided to make that into a pattern for you.. then I thought how many would prefer a big cuddly sized one.. so guess what's also in the making? lol I've been working steady the last couple days on these! I don't have dates, each will come out on different days as I finish them.


There's also one more pattern I've almost finished, it's a weird one, lol I will talk more about that later.

Lots of love! I hope you all are having a yarny weekend. See you soon...

Next Pattern A Small Jointed Bear

Hi everyone!

POST EDIT: shortly after writing this post I was in admitted to the hospital for 8 days. I'm home now with a slow recovery ahead of me. Thanks for your patience, I'll be working on this pattern as soon as I feel up to it.
Love to all!!

What a gorgeous, sunny day here in my part of Canada. My windows and doors are open, finally. I feel creative today, I love this feeling!
Today is a good day to preview my next pattern, Berry the Bear. I made him just after releasing my small pouch patterns at the beginning of April. I released a Carrot and a Strawberry. The carrot has a tiny bunny that fits inside. All free.

This little guy fits inside the strawberry! I might tweak his feet and his eyes just a

Tiny Zombie Bunny With Rotting Carrot Pouch



Hi everyone,

Today I'm bringing you something a little different for me, a zombie bunny!
You'll need the non-zombified version of the bunny  here I'll give you some ideas for zombie parts here on this page.
These are  ideas with instructions on how to make them. Feel free to use them all or play around with your own. There's no wrong way to zombify something, so have fun!

If you have trouble working with thread, no worries! You can follow the same pattern using yarn of your choice. The green bunny pictured below was made with Red Heart Comfort yarn and a size 4mm hook.


You'll find in the pattern below:

  • dangly eye
  • dangly heart
  • leg with bone
  • short arm
  • guts
  • wounds and blood splatters
  • exposed ribs 
  • how to rot the carrot 
Please note: The brain is not in the pattern yet. I made that last minute and have to see if I can recreate it.

Supplies: *read through the pattern, some of these supplies you won't need. It depends on what you make.
embroidery floss in white and red (or split yarn)
regular ww white yarn

tacky glue
paint and/or felt pen in green, black and blue
blunt end yarn needle with work for most of it.  A sharp end needle will make things

Flossy the Thread Bunny



Hello again!

Today I bring you a tiny bunny. It is about 2.5in or 6.35cm long not including ears. This bunny actually evolved from one of my recent free patterns, Barley the Bear. I changed up some of the parts, including making a bigger head, to make this bunny.

I've also made a zombified  version. The zombie parts will be up next, check back for updates.
The carrot pouch was designed specifically for this bunny, free pattern here.

Now you can scroll down this page for the bunny pattern, look at the bottom of the page for the print friendly button.


 
Important Note about the yarns used:

To get the same sized bunny there's 3 options that I've used.
One option is a sport weight yarn, that's a #2 fine. 
2nd option, hold 2 strands of embroidery floss together. You will need 7 packs of one
