Farewell Ami Club

After three years (that’s 36 patterns!) Ami Club is now closed.

I hope you all have had as much fun as Stacey and I have!

Pippa Puppy is the final pattern in the club. If you’re a club member, you’ll be able to download the pattern here until your membership runs out. Everyone’s membership and download access will run out on different days, depending on the date they signed up.

If you have any trouble accessing the final pattern (or didn’t see this notice of the closing until after your membership expired) please contact me at smile@shinyhappyworld.com and I’ll get your pattern to you.

You can find all the crochet patterns (including previous Ami Club patterns) here.

The end of the club doesn’t mean we won’t be designing more crochet patterns – just not one every month. 🙂 Instead, we’ll be designing some patterns that take a little longer. We’ve had requests for Mystery Crochet-Alongs and more Mix & Match patterns – so look for those (and maybe some crocheted puppets and baby toys) in 2020. You can sign up for the mailing list here.

It’s been a wonderful run! Happy stitching!

Happy November!

It’s feeling autumnal, so I think it’s the perfect time to make a calendar with this fox in fall colors.

September Free Desktop Wallpaper

Happy September!

That fairy is the new Ami Club pattern for the month. Isn’t she adorable? I was so tickled when she was finished that I had to go out and photograph her in some greenery and flowers. And I loved the photo so much that I had to make it my desktop wallpaper for the month! 🙂

Download your wallpaper below – there are options both with and without the September calendar.

If you want the Flit the Fairy pattern, join Ami Club here. It’s just $4 a month and you’ll get immediate access to download the pattern. She’s easy to make!

Have a great month!

August at Shiny Happy World

Here’s what’s going on this month at Shiny Happy World.

And here are the links to some of those things I mentioned. . .

Whoops! I misspoke here. The Safari Craft-Along will actually just be running in September, but you’re welcome to get a jump on making now. 🙂

  • I mentioned a bunch of free patterns that could be used with single block patterns – pillow covers and tote bags and placemats and bibs and Christmas stockings and more. You can find all of these here.

Happy stitching! Have a fantastic August!

August Wallpaper

Happy August!

We just wrapped up a Beach Craft-Along so I had swimming on the brain – and decided I needed to make a water buffalo for this month’s Ami Club pattern.

A water buffalo who can’t swim yet, so he needs a swim ring. 🙂

I was so tickled with the results that I decided to make him this month’s calendar. 🙂

(I named my water buffalo Walter after my grandfather. That’s why he has the super high-waisted swim trunks. That was the fashion in my grandpa’s day. 🙂 You can, of course, switch to buffalo-colored yarn a few rows before I did if you want your buffalo to look a little more contemporary.)

Download your wallpaper below – there are options both with and without the August calendar.

If you want the Walter the Water Buffalo pattern, join Ami Club here. It’s just $4 a month and you’ll get immediate access to download the pattern.

Have a great month!

Meet Guinevere! And All Her Friends!

The Guinevere Guinea Pig pattern is in the shop!

This one is super easy and fast to stitch up – and so much fun!

The pattern includes instructions for different coloring – if you’re up for a few color changes. Take a look at these versions made by Elizabeth and Santina.

Santina even designed her own color changes to make them match piggies at her local shelter who were up for adoption!

My daughter thought we needed a rainbow of piggies and stitched up these cuties.

Like I said – so much fun!

Get the pattern here.

Happy stitching!
