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.

Hey, all! I was recently contacted by Tuva Publishing asking if I would like to be part of their upcoming blog/IG (Instagram) tour for their newest book, “Designer Amigurumi”. I was delighted that they would ask and quickly agreed to be part of it!
Hey, guys! It looks like I’m back with another extreme amigurumi! I kinda vowed that I would never make another extreme amigurumi after my last one, (Let’s face it, guys, these things aren’t super easy to make!) but I just couldn’t resist saying “yes” when Sarah of Mama Knows Luxury asked if I’d like to make something with her extreme acrylic yarn. Staying true to my theme of only amigurumi, I decided that I would make a giant version of my penguin. You can see my original Cuddle-Sized Penguin pattern HERE. Continue reading Extreme Penguin Amigurumi
Hey, all! It’s been awhile, but I’ve been busy behind the scenes doing important stuff. ;) While I was away, I hit 40k followers on Instagram! When I started my Instagram account I had no idea I would get that many followers or that so many people would enjoy watching me make amigurumi. I’m deeply grateful to you all for making that happen. You make my life way more fun than it would be otherwise! Continue reading 40k Instagram Giveaway
Hey, all! It’s been over a month since I published my puppy dog pattern, but I’m trying to put a post together after each new pattern, listing the exact materials I used. That way, if you want to use what I used, you’ll know where to find it!
First off, you can find Chet’s pattern HERE. I’ve loved seeing the adorable versions that others have come up with using this pattern and I can’t wait to see yours too!
