    I ran across this website today. I don't think it's been posted here before. http://www.kreinik.com/kshop/home.php?cat=33&sort=orderby&sort_direction=0&page=1 4 pages of nice freebies including a lovely blue thread bag and zebra shoulder bag.

  9. I'll take mine medium well. I've been reading your website for a while. I love the eyballs. I had a go at making one and now I can't stop making them. Don't know what I'm going to do with them all. SQ
  10. Sorry I couldn't help Carime, but glad I could help you dazy. I never had a sock monkey as a child and neither did my children. I'm beginning to feel we all missed out somehow:lol
  11. Is this what you're looking for? http://home.inreach.com/marthac/craft1.html
  12. Congrats on making the bag. It's really lovely.
  13. Hello there. I'm a Brit living in the US. SQ
  14. My mother-in-law used to make granny squares with bears in. I remember how to do the bears because i used to help her make 100's of them. The pattern was very simple. I'm writing this from memory, but I think it's OK. Chain 2 row 1. 9 sc in 2nd chain from hook = 9sts row 2. 2 sc in each sc around = 18 sts. row 3. [2sc in next st, 1 sc in next st] to end = 27 sts. The circle is now divided up with 3 sc for the neck part, 3 each for the arms, 4 for each leg, with 5 x 2 chain spaces = 27 Legs and arms are worked with dc stitch and 1 row of sc. Slip stitch down side of leg and across 2 chain space and work the next leg. Head There should be 7 sc space left between the arms. Join yarn to middle 3 and work 2sc in each of 3 sc. turn. =6 sts 1 sc in first stitch, 2sc in next 4 sts 1sc in last st. turn. sc across. turn. Ear sc the next 2 sc tog twice, turn. with right side facing, 1sc, 4 hdc, 1sc in first space, 1sc in 2nd space sc. fasten off. Rejoin yarn to other side of head sc the next 2 sc tog twice, turn. with wrong side facing, 1sc, 4 hdc, 1sc in first space, 1sc in 2nd space sc. fasten off. Sew eyes and nose in black. Be careful not to let the black yarn show through on the reverse side. Add some ribbon and you're done. The final result should look like this one. http://img302.imageshack.us/img302/5849/bear9hb.jpg
  15. There are free patterns to be found on the net but you have to spend some time searching them out. Aerial the pig pattern is here: http://www.geocities.com/thelibrarian18/piggy.html Jen's stuffed toy archive has a lot of small toys that look exactly like amigurumi at http://www.bsu.edu/web/jmsutton2/cr/index.html There is a free amigurumi tutle pattern right here in this forum http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=19823
  16. I saw something very similar to this back in the 60's. It was a pattern for a vest. I've never seen anything like it since. Getting the colours right is the trick. Thanks for sharing.
  17. Wow, that is beautiful. You are very clever.
  18. Swap has been made. Thanks.

    Glad you all like them. I hope you will show some you've made.
  20. Hi Felters, I have a few felted toy patterns to swap if anyone has what I'm looking for. It's a good deal as each pattern cost me $6 each to buy and the one I want is $7.50 http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=19824 SQ
  21. I checked out a book from my library recently, Beautiful Crochet Sweaters by Patricia Bevans. It is mostly sweaters but there are some cardigans too. I haven't seen another book with such lovely patterns. I highly recommend this one, you won't be disappointed. SQ
  22. I don't know about that person, but there is a website out there with crochet food and gives the patterns too. If I find it again I'll let you know.
  23. A very pretty girl and the vest is pretty too.
