Christmas Projects

Here's the first of my Christmas projects, A Christmas light bulb scarf. I'm working on an elf hat to match this in the green with a bold bobble on the end. I do have a pattern for this if anybody is interested.
Here's a scarf from a Red Heart pattern called hearts and stripes. I just substituted holiday colors.

I found an adorable Shroomish on Kat's page and tried to make my own version as well. The top are from my pattern and the bottom are from hers. Mine is just a basic ball shape in two tones with a scalloped edge added on.

Finished a whole evolution!

I finished the entire evolutionary chain of Hoppip, Skiploom, and Jumpluff. I was inspired by Kats Creations to make the entire set. Her patterns were different from my Jumpluff so I improvised from my pattern of Jumpluff and used her pattern for Hoppip's leaves. Thanks Kat for the inspiration.

Halloween fun

Spooking up the house for Halloween, so far we've got the graveyard out, the spiders out and the witch up. Still have to put out all of the inflatables and special effects and the yard will be complete.

Busy season

Sorry I haven't posted any new patterns for a long time. September through the end of the year is always so busy for me. My family has many birthdays during these months, and school starting up means field trips, open houses, conferences etc... Then there's my obsession with Halloween, it takes most of the month of October just to get all of the decorations up. Right now I am also making things on commission for the first time ever and more and more orders keep coming in for hats, scarves, and dolls. I don't even have patterns for most of the orders, I have to make them up as I go. Some of the things I didn't even know what they were and had to look them up, like I had no idea what Yo Gabba Gabba was, much less how to make hats inspired by it. This is what I came up with. I'm working on more owls hats too, and a spongebob inspired scarf. Plus so many requests for Pokemon stuffies for my kids friends, and they got to raid my finished projects bag and snag some of the Mario hat and scarf sets. Hopefully soon I can get Jirachi done or Charmeleon, or one of the hat and scarf sets that I put aside for a while, and get the pattern posted.

Awesome pokemon patterns

I have fallen behind in designing my own pokemon patterns, so I thought I would share links to other fabulous crochet artists who share their pokemon patterns for free.
 Some of the pokemon I've made from patterns shared in the links below
they all have free pokemon patterns.
