What inspires you to create something new?
Dear friends of mine recently had a baby. And to celebrate, I wanted to give something unique,
something special, something very ‘me’.
I had a whimsical scene in my mind. This little girl, barely able to walk, pattering through the house in a linen and lace dress. The beams of morning light dance on the floor all around her. She is carrying her favorite teddy.
This teddy is not just a toy to her, it is her friend, the one who gives her comfort when mum is beyond her reach. This teddy is always with her.
She often holds Teddy by just one arm, or leg. But Teddy doesn’t mind. After all, she was once just a ball of yarn in a craft box, but now she means so much more.
And now, let me introduce to you the teddy that my whimsical thoughts inspired me to make.
Her crochet pattern is available here and here.
Happy Crocheting! 🙂
I made these as gifts for some friends. I used a 1.5mm crochet hook and the equivalent sized yarn. At 2.4cm (or 3cm including tail) these tiny cats were the perfect size for attaching to a mobile/cellphone or key ring. Although not in the pattern, I also crocheted a length of chain stitches to use as the strap and ran it through the body and secured it at the bottom.
They are so adorably tiny!

This cutey little cupcake is super quick and easy to make. I made my mini version using a 1.5mm hook and equivalent sized yarn. My finished cupcake is 15mm tall. Perfect to attach to your cellphone/mobile phone or keychain. Continue reading “Free Crochet Pattern – Tiny Phonestrap Cupcake”
I made this adorable little fella using 2 strand crochet cotton (14wraps/cm) and 1.5mm hook. The finished platypus is 3.8cm tall, and super cute! I think he will probably end up attached to my mobile phone. 😀
The awesome free pattern is available here on Craftster, courtesy of Beavisfreak. (You may need to register on Craftster to view the pattern, but that only takes a minute 🙂 ). The platypus in the photo in her pattern is considerably larger than my little guy. I did not have any trouble following the pattern exactly to make this tiny, scaled down version though.
Happy Crocheting! 🙂
This is my mini phone strap version of the free pattern available here. I followed the pattern as described, but used thin yarn/crochet thread and the equivalent crochet hook (I think I used a 1.5mm). My finished cup is just under 2.5cm/1 inch across the top.

I made this cute little fella with some thin (3ply) crochet yarn/thread I had lying around, and its equivilant hook. He is 3cm tall. I have since attached a loop to the top of his head and made him into a mobile phone charm. 🙂 Continue reading “Free Crochet Pattern – Tiny Amigurumi Penguin”
