Everyone Loves A Teddy

Teddy bears are comforting, whether you’re in the mood to cuddle or just feel that inner child coming out. They also make adorable subjects for accessories, like this Teddy Bear Camera Case I made for my daughter. Click on the link below for the FREE pattern 🙂


Teddy bears also make great models! Much better than any baby doll!

Sporting a Cabled Newsboy Cap from Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation, my daughter’s teddy is a fashion sensation!


My version of the cap is knitted with Lang Yarns Maxi Tosca #3986. I just love the self-striping pattern and the luxe colouring. The cap is also worked on needles one size smaller than recommended in the pattern, so it will fit a child’s head. Isn’t it adorable?!

Rock N Roll

So I’m sitting at my kitchen table with some odd balls of yarn spread out before me, tapping my pen on my notebook and wondering what to make. I get up, make a coffee, sit down and tap, tap, tap some more. I work best with music playing in the background, usually something low-key and relaxing, but this time I wanted something else. Enter AC/DC Razor’s Edge…

With head bobbing, foot tapping and pen drumming on my notebook, inspiration struck! Little graphs with black notes floated before my eyes, cross-stitched guitars wailed while crossed drum sticks tapped a beat on an ivory skull! Ink started flowing onto paper and pretty soon  I had the makings of the Rock N Roll Series of crochet pattern ideas before me.

The first pattern is this sweet pink and black bag with floating musical notes…


This pattern is designed for beginner crocheters and teaches the single crochet stitch, double crochet stitch, how to change colours, attaching panels using single crochet, working from a graph and making rope ties. For pattern, please write to .
