    I can imagine how many hours you spent on her, but definitely every minute was worth the effect!

    Hawaiian girl

    My friend's biggest dream is to visit Hawaii and she's crazy about everything Hawaiian. I wanted to make something for her and made that doll. I'm happy to say my friend loved it. Generally I followed the pattern for Audrey Doll by Jessica Doering but I used very wise trick to avoid floppy head - I found it in "Mina doll pattern" on A Yarnful Day blog. I made up the skirt and flowers on my own. The doll is about 20 cm tall. I used cotton Jeans yarn.

    Hawaiian girl

    I found some clues how to make it here: https://ayarnfulday.blogspot.com/2018/04/mina-doll-pattern.html Here is a pic of my doll before making the head; My daughter thought it's finished and she said: "Oh I love it! isn't it a Cyclops? I've never had a Cyclops!!!" I made a head on the part that looks like a collar. it works!
  7. Aloha! Finally I have something bigger to show: Hawaiian girl I made for my friend. I put it on her desk at school on the first day. She was happy I wrote more here:https://forum.crochetville.com/topic/160629-hawaiian-girl/

    Harvest Angel

    Very pretty!
  11. The throw is beautiful, judianne! Gardener, the potholders will be well used, I'm sure I'm not into crocheting as much as I thought I would in the summer - renovating at home and at school makes me a bit tired of everything... But yesterday I started tiny thread purple butterflies for my brother's wedding. They want 250 of them to give as wedding favors. I already have 6 . But my aunt helps too and the wedding is in October, so we'll do. I hope.

    Thank You FGM

    In the middle of the chaos made of: house renovating, going back from the trip (me) and packing and leaving for a summer camp (my kids and me) - some wonderful surprise appeared. A box full of items stright from crafter's heaven! Thank you, my MS FGM, for your amazing gifts! They let me stop for a moment in the rush - and enjoy such a great present!
  13. Great works everyone! I'm on a summer camp with kids and everyone got their new friends- little octopus. Kids were in 7th heaven 😍

    Ugly Sweater Ornaments

    Wow, they are so cute! I can't imagine how it's possible to knit something so small with all those color changes and ornaments!
  15. Here is the octopus for 2 weeks old Lena, my friend's first child
  16. Graduation afghan is wonderful! The crazy colors are perfect! I've just finished the big octopus today - well, not so big, just for a newborn baby, but bigger than my key-ring octopi I wonder if it's an Octopi Year for me? I make other projects, but I've made many many many octopi.... Kids have fun

    Poodle eyeglass holder

    It's cute! My mum told me there were popular poodle bottle covers (almost half a century ago, because I don't remember them ) like that - just instead of a ball for a head you make a tube to cover the bottle. I like your poodle too

    Bird Nest

    Probably it's a new kind of bird - a crocheter bird. She couldn't make a nest without a hook, so you could either make a nest for her or leave a small hook... Lucky her to have you!

    if you give a moose a muffin....

    ....well, then you probably know the consequences... Some time ago some Special Person gifted me three books from the series "if you give...". My daughter loved them. I had a mouse crocheted for another book and I used to present the story to my pre-school kids (I teach them English). They enjoyed it a lot and couldn't wait to see the moose book. I was very busy and didn't have time to make the moose, so I took a moose toy from my daugter's shelf. I was surprised because the kids were DISAPPOINTED and told me: Why don't you have the crocheted moose? Why didn't you make one??? I didn't realize they could notice the difference and appreciate something hand made, something different. I told them the moose was too shy to visit them and I'd try to encourage him next time. So I spent last weekend crocheting a moose... The pattern is by Sharon Ojala - Amigurumi To Go. It's free and you can find it here: http://www.amigurumitogo.com/2015/06/amigurumi-moose-pattern-free.html Of course, now the kids wait for a pig and a pancake...
