Today I’d like to share something very special with you. I was asked by LoveCrafts.com (formerly LoveCrochet), to design a simple and easy crochet pattern for Operation Gratitude. What is Operation Gratitude, you ask? Well, it’s a wonderful care package company that sends care packages nation-wide to soldiers, veterans, wounded war heroes, first responders, and military families.
Operation Gratitude has sent out over 2 million care packages since 2003. This year, their goal is to send out over half a million!

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.
Also, read about Blossom the Bunny and Owen the Owl HERE and HERE. Continue reading Extreme Amigurumi: Bubbles the Unicorn Crochet Kit

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.

Hey, ya’ll! I recently had the great honor of being able to design an exclusive pattern for Stacey Trock’s Ami Club for the month of December! When Stacey first contacted me about it, I wasn’t at all sure what I wanted to design. For some reason, a tiger or a raccoon kept popping into my mind so I suggested them both. Stacey had just recently designed a raccoon, so I settled on a tiger!
I had designed a tiger about a year ago for my 100 amigurumi countdown, but he was only about four inches tall and I knew that I wanted to make some needed changes to the design so I might as well start afresh with a new tiger design that was about twice the size of my first one.

Hey, ya’ll! A few months ago I was contacted by Nade of Secret Crochet Club asking me if I would like to contribute a design for one of their subscription boxes. Secret Crochet Club is a new crochet club where you subscribe and receive a crochet subscription box every month. In each box is an exclusive pattern, ALL the materials you need to make it, and lots of other wonderful goodies crammed inside! You can purchase a three-month subscription, six-month subscription, or if you like, just the current month’s box. The fun thing about this crochet club is that the contents of the boxes are a secret (hence the name) until you receive the box. Continue reading Secret Crochet Club Collab
