So, I just loved the movie How to Train Your Dragon. I loved it so much, I had to see it twice. As soon as I saw it, though, I thought two things: 1) Toothless the dragon looks and acts EXACTLY like my cat, Boo. E.x.a.c.t.l.y. 2) I must crochet a Toothless. I have actually… Continue reading How to Crochet your Dragon
Well, there's no snow storm ... and there's not a complete polar bear yet, but there will be soon! This is the project I've been working on lately. But it's been going reeeeeally slow because I've had a bunch of other things on the go. Now that I've got the body the way I want… Continue reading A Polar Bear in a Snow Storm

Never could I ever have predicted the extent to which Happy Face Toy would be… Continue reading The Happy Face Toy

(Aside: it turns out that Totoro ended up in the movie because John Lasseter is a huge Totoro fan!) I knew… Continue reading To-to-ro, Totoro!
Let's start with the small, shall we? Here is my newest pattern - Teddy Bears! This was what I was hinting at in my last post. These little guys are really fun to make - hence, the making two of them. The pattern to make a Teddy Bear is up at my shop now, if… Continue reading Crochet Bears Small and … Not So Small
