Your Donations and Support Are Appreciated

Updated June 18th 2018,


Enjoy the patterns!
I am sharing with you, not just one or two, but very close to 200 free patterns that I have designed over the years. If I can keep designing, as I want to,  there will be many more to come. You can browse my gallery of free patterns on my Ravelry page here.

Why do I share for free?

I am sharing with you because I am paying forward a gift that was given to me. The gift of a free pattern that touched my heart and changed my life forever. I am so happy to have the ability and the skills to pay it forward.

It can be difficult,
It is at times difficult for me do things this way. My income goes up and down, sometimes dramatically in the wrong direction. Especially if life interrupts me and I can't get a new pattern up within a couple weeks of the last one.
I do  fully rely on ad revenue and donations to keep this going. This is my job, this is how I support my children. This is also my passion, I want to share the joy of amigurumi with as many people as I can!

Sharing is caring,
Please help support this blog with a donation today. If you can't donate, consider supporting me by sharing my blog or my youtube channel with your social media sites. Sharing helps a lot too. It really does! Thank you.

Thank you. Your kindness is much appreciated.

  4. Dear Sharon:
    I have meet many amazing (on a scale of 1 to 10) women through out my 56 years of life, but, YOUR THE CLOSET TO AMAZING, FULL OF APPRECIATION with TRUE GRATEFUL, & ENDLESS THOUGHFULLNESS; I've ever seen!
    My comment was to tell you how extremely talented - gifted you are, to also, thank you for being so gracious in sharing with others & teaching others of your talants/gifts. I wanted to explain that I'm disabled and my husband is retired, so it never fails;when I want to give, buy, etc., we are down to pennies. I never would insult anyone, by donating to them a few pennies.
    Truth is I went to the website "ALL FREE CROCHET" looking for something cute to make for my three grandkids for Easter and also, something for my oldest granddaughter who was born on St. Patrick's day;and she's got my/my daughters Irish bloodline.
    Then I come across your website (I'm am going through all the Wonderful items), started to download & saw "the note" and thought is this a joke or a test! If I didn't feel awful downloading some of the patterns; I did more than ever after reading your note.
    A HEART FELT THANK YOU TO YOU & GOD GIVEN TALENTS! Thanks your Gratitude and Courtesy. I'll be be a lot because of the Wonderful items you create & Share. I hope someday I am to Donate more then, words, or the prays I'll say for you & yours! God Bless! ☺

    1. awe, thank you so much! I appreciate every word you said. It means the world to know that these patterns will be helpful to you and also will bring you joy as well.

      As far as donating, PLEASE never feel awful about not donating. I would never want anyone to feel any obligation whatsoever to give something that they really can't afford. Your comment was worth far more to me than a monetary donation, truly!

      Thanks a million, you made my day. Many blessings to you too!

  5. I can't believe you have offered your dragons for free. I would have been happy to pay for such a beautiful pattern so have made a donation. You truly are so kind to make your patterns available to everyone and not just those who can pay. 💖

  7. Hi Sharon,

    I love all of your work.....from your cute amigurumi patterns to your absolutely amazing doll houses! I've been following your Youtube channel for a while now and one day hope to have a go at a tree house of some sort. In the meantime I'm aiming to make a couple of your little animals.....love the dragon and dress me bunny so I think they will be first on the list :)

    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent. It's so refreshing in this world of commercialism to see someone who is so willing to share their talent so freely with others.

    All the best from an Aussie fan
    Lynne

    PS I'll be back to donate a little more when I can :)

  8. Dear Sharon,

    Thank you so much for your free patterns. I've made already a few amigurumi dolls using your patterns. It was fun doing them. I never thought I could them before. But your instructions were easy to follow. Bless your heart for your generosity in sharing your well-designed patterns.
    How about designing an Aussie kangaroo and a cute koala with little joeys in their pouches? Just a little friendly suggestion. Thank you. And cheers and hello from Down Under. Keep up the good work.

  9. Thank you for your gift of creativity. I do crochet and knit, but want to try something for gifting that can be (hopefully) a quick project for double the gratification - for me and for the receiver :)

  18. I've been crocheting for 45 years. I have never been more impressed with both the end product or with the pattern. The dragon pattern is absolute artistry and you are a genius not only in its design but equally in your written and video instructions. Thank you.
