The cutest cat ever!

Amigurumi, cats, crochet, cute, handmade, homemade

A cat lover friend of mine asked if I could make her a black and white cat. Once again I scoured the internet for a freebie pattern of a super dooper cute cat. I found a pattern but unfortunately it was only available in Dutch (or maybe it was German!!!). No problem I thought, Google translate will sort that right out. Well Google translate did the job, in a fashion, but I still had to decipher (sometimes by trial and error which meant pulling out lots of crochet) the translation. Also, I’m not a lover of crocheting with black wool, it’s hard to see and count the stitches but I persevered and so glad I did as the end result is one of the cutest things I’ve ever made. I’m glad I scribbled and crossed out and added notes all over the print out as now I can quite easily make more.

A Whale of a Tale

Amigurumi, craft, crochet, handmade, homemade

I adore this. A friend of a family member got in touch as she was having difficulty finding a navy and white whale for her baby’s nursery. She asked if I could help. Not one to turn down a request for help, I scoured the internet for a freebie pattern but couldn’t find anything I liked so I decided have a go at making my own pattern – it looked simple enough. The end result is absolutely gorgeous, I love it and will definitely be making more. I used navy and cream wool but I think it will still look great in any colour combination. I’ve typed up the pattern for future use and I’m even thinking of adjusting the pattern so I can make different sizes to make whale families. I think you’ll agree this little fella has definitely got the “Awwww” factor.  To see more of my creations take a look a my Facebook page – Dawn’s Handmade Cards and Gifts.  If anybody would like a copy of my pattern please feel free to message me via my facebook page and I’ll send it on to you.
