I know it’s been forever since I posted about the first two extreme amis I designed for Premier Yarns, but I still have one more member to introduce to you! I figured better late than never, right?
And now that Christmas is just around the corner, wouldn’t these extreme amis make the ultimate Christmas gifts? And the kits would surely make the best Christmas gifts for the crocheters in your life! You can find all three kits HERE.
Over the last two years, it has become apparent to me that I will never be able to take on as many custom orders as I would like to. I get messages from people almost on a daily basis wanting me to make them one of my amis. About 99.9% of the time I end up saying “no” because I just don’t have the time anymore to take custom orders while at the same time giving pattern designing the attention it needs. And as I work on expanding my blog and website, custom orders keep taking a back seat. Continue reading Become A Storyland Amis Maker
And here is the second extreme ami that I designed for Premier Yarns! Meet Blossom the Bunny!
When Blossom was a baby, the other bunnies used to make fun of her because her ears were so long. After a while, Blossom learned to ignore what the other bunnies thought about her and embraced her uniqueness. (A lesson we all need to learn!)
Hey, all! Today I’m bringing you a very special book review (and a giveaway!) for a very special book by a good friend of mine. Introducing, “Whimsical Stitches” by Lauren Espy, or as you may know her, A Menagerie Of Stitches!
How cute is just the front cover? I knew the moment I laid eyes on this book that I was going to love it. And oh, my! I am so in love with it and all the cute designs! Picking a favorite one is impossible.
**NOTE: You can find an ad-free, beautifully formatted and concise version of this pattern available in my shop HERE. Supporting my website in this way ensures that I’ll be able to release many more free patterns in the future! :)
Hey, all! I’m super excited to bring you another free pattern! This time I’ll be releasing a whole series of baby farm animals over the next few months. The first one I’ll be sharing is this baby pig.
Hey, guys! I’m so excited to announce that Extreme Danny the Penguin is now available as a kit from Mama Knows Luxury! In the kit, you’ll receive the pattern to make Danny – including tons of step-by-step pictures – and all the yarn required! Find it HERE.
Most of the other materials that you will need you probably already have on hand. The few specialty items you might not have include 40mm safety eyes, a P/Q (15mm) crochet hook, and a weaving/loom needle. I’ve provided links to each item below. Continue reading Extreme Penguin Amigurumi Kit
Hey, all! I thought it would be nice to share with you the process I go through to publish a pattern from start to finish. I know everyone’s process is slightly different, but I want to share what I do so that you’ll be encouraged if you’re just starting out and maybe give you an idea of how you could be doing it.
