***New Pattern Alert!***

Woohoo! I am finally releasing my first amigurumi pattern! I have designed many patterns, but this is the first one I’ve released so I’m very excited!

Birdy Crochet Pattern
You can find this pattern HERE on Ravelry!

This is an interactive baby toy that rattles and crinkles! It’s a full step-by-step photo and written pattern, including how to make all the components to make it rattle and crinkle.

The pattern uses basic crochet stitches worked in a continuous spiral. The components to make it rattle and crinkle are quite simple and you can use things from around the house.

Tension isn’t hugely important, but make sure there is no holes between stitches so you can’t see the stuffing, especially as this is a baby toy.

It only uses a small amount of yarn so would be great to use up odd ends!

Finished size – around 7cm/3 inches, not including the hair

Hope you love it as much as I do! ^_^

New Item Listed – Baby/Child Bamboo Cotton Crocheted Summer Hat!

I have listed a new item – woohoo!

Baby Hat
It is made with a gorgeous bamboo cotton yarn that has some amazing benefits! Bamboo is eco-friendly as it requires no chemicals and very little water to grow, and it is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It also absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than other plants and releases more oxygen. Bamboo cotton keeps you cool as well as absorbing moisture away from your body. It is also great for allergy-prone and sensitive skin, and is anti-fungal and antibacterial! It is breathable and doesn’t retain odors, meaning less washing! With 100% natural fibers it is a great choice for your little one.

Baby Hat
Flowers
It has a really cute triangle design and comes with one big flower and one small one in any colour! There are 11 flower colour combinations to choose from:
Pinks and purples –

Greens, white and yellow –

You can message me if there isn’t a colour listed and I will try to find a matching yarn for you! Or, if you want a different accessory altogether, say a dinosaur or heart, just message me!

Here’s a close up of the scalloped edge

For the custom fit: Measure all around your child’s head in a full circle across the forehead. If this is for a gift or you can’t measure for any reason, add the age into the message when buying instead and I will base it on averages. However this is not a guaranteed size and I would recommend measuring for a good fit.

You can buy it from my Etsy shop for £8.50, and I ship worldwide

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you like my newest item!

Etsy Finds Friday – Special Edition

A day late again…. If I carry on like this I will have to change the name to ‘Etsy Finds Saturday’! Doesn’t quite have the same feel though does it?

Anyway, today’s theme is a special edition:

Halloween is not very big here in the Uk. I would love to go to America for Halloween one day! It always looks so amazing ♥ Are you going to/having a Halloween party this year? We will be putting up a few decorations, carving a pumpkin (If we can get one in time!) and handing out sweets :) Not dressing up though, I don’t have anything I could wear!

Whatever you do, I hope you have a great time :)
