If you like sweet cuddly toys than you appreciate the Bunnies of Julie Williams and you want to hug them right away. Only you have to knit them first. On her website: http://www.littlecottonrabbits.typepad.co.uk/ You can find all patterns of her cuddly animals. I made my first Bunny Boy this month, I call him Brother Bunny after a dutch comic. He has a small brown patch on his right arm, because I run out of yarn. Only the ears are a bit weird. I think making them with smaller knitting needles would have made them better. Julie Williams has also patterns for the cutest sweaters and dresses, I made the green striped one after her pattern. Only the trousers are my own doing. For Brother Bunny I used sand colored Acrylic yarn from the brand SMC Bravo, for the sweater and trouser I used Colour Crafter from the brand Scheepjes, I used also knitting needles 3.5 mm. The bunnies are knitted on 2 needles. The pattern description is very extended and gives you lot of advises how to do the bunny parts. There is also a very little part that will form the tail. I am very pleased with my Brother Bunny or Broer Konijn.
Yelled my little cousin, when she unwrapped her present. And so it was. I had made her a new dolly that resembles Octodad.
I knitted the doll on circular needles and normal needles, wit some leftover cotton in the colors of the action-figurine of the populair game. The doll is about 24 cm or 9 inch high and bendable.
I am not totally satisfied with the head, so maybe I make a second dolly with some improvements before releasing the pattern.
In Discworld (a book serie by Terry Pratchett) a pixie folk is living, known as the wee free man or Feegles. The pictsies, as they are called, are in the books 6 inch long and have a blue colored skin. The blue is a result of many tattoos. They all have orange-red hair. The tattoos identify there clans. They are all male and very strong. They spend their time drinking and fighting and doing things that are forbidden in the world.
I made some amigurumi Feegles and the pattern of the main Feegle man is to be found under pattern and so >> discworld . All other Feegles are variations on the same pattern, just add a round for a longer Feegle or a stitch less in the head rounds for a smaller head. I like to use my imagination to make up the other Feegles and their clothes and attributes. It is more fun in this way. The Feegles are 10 – 12 cm high (4-5 inch) and made of blue and orange cotton yarn.
I hope you enjoy much the making of Feegles as I did.
I wish you a fine 2016 with lots to crochet or knit!!
In the pattern section of my blog you can now find my version of Pat and Mat. Pat and Mat are two very clumsy neighbors. They do everything wrong. The video’s are to view on you tube.
A year ago I made the dolls, after a picture in a magazine. I was discontent with the dolls I found on the internet and wanted to make my own version. That succeeded in two nice dress-up dolls. I made a few outfits to dress them in. The patterns of these outfits are to download in due time. For now the basic clothes and the dolls are to download from my pattern page. The basic clothes are easy to make if you know the basics from crochet or knitting. The distinctive hats are also described in the basic pattern and further some simple shoes. The dolls are about 20 cm or 7 a 8 inch tall.
A je to, Elzeblaadje
ps the Dutch version of the pattern is to find on https://elzeboom.wordpress.com/
Today I made a new permanent page in my blog. I want to make a section about dolls. It is nice to make these little guys. I crochet them or I knit them and dress them up. Sometimes they turned out to be very lovely creatures. I can blog about them but it is nicer to give them there own page. So the first doll is immortalized. It is a tribute to a great artist. >>> David Bowie Doll
The second page is about some special dolls I made last year. You find it in the project section of my blog.
