The Latest Progress in Crochet Projects

Wee! Alrighty, to recap the last week in projects... 
Here's the latest project I've finished 


A Black Ewok hoodie for my friend Ms. Doom Things aka Auntie Gir aka one of my favorite people... 
you will understand (and most likely come to the same conclusion) once you read her blog. :D




another project about halfway done...


Huzzah! Bunnicula in the WORKS! :D 


and yet a third project that is in the "yarn" stage... where I've selected the colors, but haven't started hooking it just yet.
So for the moment, the yarn sits there... and taunts me... LOL

To be Zombie creations SOON - Muha!

The labels on the colors are for my friend who requested 12 inch tall zombie dolls like the one I made a while ago. I had to do be resourceful and reach out to a few ravelry friends to find Sami's hair color to match the Zombie I'd made a while back as requested. 
Here is my model. :) 


More crafting to come in the near future! 
I hope you'll stay tuned!

Please NOTE:

You have permission to sell the finished item from this pattern but rewriting, reselling, distributing or copying the pattern itself is prohibited. 
Please include a link back to my etsy shop or blog in all sales/listings of items. 
Thank you for your understand and cooperation.


When friends bring me a cartoon or drawing to bring to life and the height they want, I have to sketch it  to be sure I get the doll to scale. Above is the sketch I made to use as a guide :). 
I recommend anyone who can draw and crochet to use this method. Granted you'll be working the doll up and pulling out the stitches from time to time, but hopefully it will spare some of your time! 

Happy creating friends!

Who Could Forget... Mr. Bomb Omb?

Who could forget Marios Bros Nintendo Game? Growing up I would look forward to going to my grandparents or the neighbor kids place because - hello - hey had a Nintendo!! I was not very good at Mario Brothers games. Throw any version of that game at me and I had fun playing it but was not about to be saving the princess any time soon, or ever. Yeah, never ever... ^-^. But that's okay! I still have fond memories of playing the game and seeing it progress to the point where Mario could ride on a Yoshi and do amazing and incredible things! Still, no saving the princess for me lol.

In any case, a few years back a request for a Mario Bomb Omb plush was submitted to me and I recently was complimented on the design. Complement = Dawn encouraged and inspired = must share with the world!

So today I share my very first published pattern with you from my etsy shop!! The link on etsy can be found here to purchase and the link to the pattern to purchase on ravelry is here.



I can appreciate that someone told me my design takes the cake, 
because the details are important to me. :)

Also, a few years back I was asked to make a basketball size Bom Omb - did I oblige this request?! YES. Unfortunately I can only find a few pics of this large dude. Wish I would have taken more!! :D 



Here's a picture to give you an idea of how big Mr. Omb really was. 


Which do you like better? The big one? Or the tiny one?
