Window Shopping

Hey there!

It's been a while since my last blog-post (thank you all so much for your comments on my Starlight Baby Blanket, I'm glad you all like the pattern!). Today I thought I'd show you a round-up of things I've made recently to fill the shelves of my new DaWanda-Shop. But don't worry - this is not an attempt to lure you into my shop :) I know that the readers of my blog are more interested in making than buying, so I've included some pattern-links for you!

Although I'm really not a fan of amigurumi (there's far too much attention and concentration required for my taste *gg*) I sometimes stumble upon a pattern that's just too cute to resist, like this clown here:


It's a paid pattern by Mari-Liis Lille from Lilleliis, and I can tell you it's really worth the money! She's got a whole bunch of lovely patterns, so I've also made these cute Cuddly Babies:



Since both these dolls and my baby-blankets take some time to make, I also wanted to offer some smaller, quicker-to-make items in my shop, and so I've made a selection of baby teethers. Using wooden rings, I sealed them with coconut-oil and simply worked a few rows of single-crochet stitches around half the ring and added a little hanger (just because I thought it looked cute *gg*):



The idea for the other rings I've made is inspired by the Bunny Slope Teethers, a free pattern from Playin' Hooky Designs. To make the strap that is attached to the ring I didn't work in rows like the original pattern suggests, though, but made up a pattern myself that is worked in the round.



And of course, I've made some items that are based on my own patterns, like this set of spiral coasters...



... or some pincushions in different color-combinations.



And just because I've heard on Television that toilet paper covers are SO yesterday, I even made one of those using my latest mandala-pattern - just to prove a point :) Well, the cover still hasn't sold yet, but I'm not losing hope! :)



Last but not least, I felt like making some more crochet covered stones. If you've been following my blog from the start, you know that every once in a while I've made those stones as gifts, and I thought they'd be a nice addition to my shop.



Well, that was mostly it, I hope you've found some inspiration today :) 

Currently I'm working on yet another baby blanket, but it's taking me longer than expected. In the meantime, I thought I'd share with you the pattern (both graphic and written) for the c2c lion blanket I've made recently.



So stay tuned for the next blog post with the free pattern! :)

Have a great and sunny day,
