Isn’t she a cutie?

She’s super easy to make. Everything is crocheted together – the only sewing you need to do is a simple bit of running stitch to attach her wig to her head. Easy peasy!

Ringo Rabbit Crochet Pattern Is Here!

This cutie is so much fun to make – I made him three times!

Once in spring green.

Once in Easter Egg-ish stripes. (There’s a video tutorial here showing how to crochet stripes with almost no jog.)

And once (maybe my favorite) in Caron Simply Soft Tweeds in a warm and woodsy taupe.

I can’t wait to see the colors you all make!

Meet Ruth the Red Fox – September’s Ami Club Pattern

Have you seen the new Ami Club pattern for September?

It’s Ruth the Red Fox and she’s a total sweetie – and lots of fun to stitch up. I finished mine completely on the drive from Charleston back to Asheville on that unexpected trip I took a couple of weeks ago. πŸ™‚

Ruth was designed by the awesome Alyssa Voznak.

If you’re an Ami Club member – be sure to download and save your pattern before the end of the month.

If you’re not a member yet – join here! You’ll get access to the pattern right away.

Be sure to tag your finished foxes #RuthCAL when you post them in the Shiny Happy People group. There’s a crochet-along and we can’t wait to see what you make!

Happy stitching!


Meet Sheila the Sheep

Sheila the new new Ami Club pattern for August!

I love how round and fluffy she is!

That fluffiness is from using eyelash yarn. Eyelash yarn used to cause much swearing and many tears, but a couple of months ago I figured out a painless way to work with it. There’s a video here showing what I learned. I was so excited to try my method out on this sheep and I’m so thrilled with how it turned out! I especially love that bit at the top of her head. πŸ™‚

The pattern for Sheila is only available to Ami Club members. For $4 a month members get a new exclusive pattern, a special 50% off discount on four different patterns every month, and a permanent discount on craft eyes and noses. It’s a great deal!

Join Ami Club here.

If you join Ami Club you get immediate access to download this adorable pattern.

If you’re already a member, sign in to your account and download and save Sheila the Sheep.

There’s a special Sheila crochet-along this month, so be sure to share photos of your finished sheep in the Shiny Happy People group and tag them #SheilaCAL.

I’m hoping to see some rainbow sheep. πŸ™‚

Happy stitching!
