  1. Hi, I just designed 3 mini amigurumis. I had a lot of fun making them so I hope you like them. You can find them on my website www.peggysew.com and on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/nl/shop/PeggySewPatterns?ref=hdr_shop_menu If you would like to win one of the patterns, there's a giveaway on facebook Tinneke
  2. Hi, I recently changed my website so the link didn't work anymore. I replaced the link by the correct one, so it should send you to the correct page now. The only problem is that my hosting company is updating their system and the website seems to be offline at the moment. I hope they will fix this soon. Feel free to send me your email address in a personal message and I'll be happy to send you the pattern as long as the site is offline. Tinneke "Peggy Sew"
  3. Hi, I just made a little Halloween witch pattern. She's scary but lovely at the same time. You can find the free pattern here: http://www.peggysew.com/?p=1940〈=en Happy crocheting! Tinneke
  4. I'm currently looking for testers for 2 patterns: 1) Mr Santa Claus +bag 2) Mrs Santa Claus + baby I know it's not exactly the time of the year to start your Christmas preparations, but you'll understand that I have to create my patterns now to have them ready in time I would like to find some English speaking pattern testers since I'm not a native speaker. (I already have some experience in writing patterns in English and I already have some great English speaking testers ) You need some yarn, soft stuffing and safety eyes. Deadline: 2 weeks after receiving the pattern of your choice. You can make both if you want to and if you can finish them within 2 weeks after receiving the first one. The patterns are detailed and contain a lot of photos. They are written in US crochet terminology skill level: beginner with some experience to intermediate yarn used: coton yarn calling for a 2,5/3mm hook. (US C/2, UK11 or 12) . You can use other types of yarn as well and choose the colors you like. The most important thing for me is that the pattern is clear . I welcome all testers who want to try one of the patterns, who are willing to give me their feedback and check the gramar as well. I would also like to receive a photo of your finished item. Everyone who has a serious interest can join my FB group for testers: https://www.facebook...61420530700587/ It's a small group with nice people and we'll be happy to welcome you. As a compensation you get the final version of the pattern with all the amendments and my eternal gratitude. By joining my group you'll also be the first to be informed about other opportunities for testers. Thank you Tinneke "Peggy Sew"
  5. Hi Deb, Thanks for your comment. I understand your problem and I think it occurs especially when the pattern says you have to close the opening of the head and the body entirely. When you have to sew them together, you then have two round shapes that will not match easily and the head will possibly flop over. All my patterns are made differently. You don't have to close the opening entirely. You have to fasten off when you still have 12 or 18 sts in a round. (and you don't have to close that round) Then you sew the 12 or 18 stitches off the last round off the head and body together. You pull the thread through one st of the body and one st of the head, then again one st of the body, one st of the head and so on until all stitches are sewn together. The base of the head and body is larger and flatter and therefor the head should stay in place more easily. Just before you entirely close the opening, you can add a bit more stuffing to make the neck a bit firmer if needed. I had my pattern tested and none of the heads that I saw on the pictures flopped over. So if you have the problem with other patterns, I suggest you fasten off when you still have a small opening. It's easier to sew two small openings together than to sew two round balls together. I hope my explanation is clear... Good luck Tinneke
  6. Hi, I just finished my baby amigurumi pattern. Aren't they cute?

  7. UPDATE *** I found enough testers for the amigurumi baby, but I would like to add a few more people to my test group for future patterns. If you're interested you can join my FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/461420530700587/ *** Hi, I'm currently looking for testers for my amigurumi baby pattern. The pattern is already tested in Dutch, but it's now translated into English and since I'm not a native speaker, I would like to find some English speaking pattern testers. You need some yarn, some soft stuffing and safety eyes (can be replaced by embroidery thread) (see picture). It' s not a big doll so I make it in less than a day. If you're less experienced it might take a bit longer, which is OK. It's a written pattern with a lot of photos. skill level: beginner to intermediate yarn used: coton yarn calling for a 2,5/3mm hook. (US C/2, UK11 or 12) . You can use other yarn as well. I welcome all testers who want to try the pattern, and check the gramar of the pattern as well. I would also like to receive a photo of your finished item. For this pattern I would like to have 3 testers, but I will be needing some more in the future. Everyone who has a serious interest can ask to join my FB group for testers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/461420530700587/ As a compensation you get the final version of the pattern with all the amendments, my eternal gratitude and discounts on future patterns. Thank you Tinneke "Peggy Sew"
