Amigurumonsters Design Contest - Please Vote for Mallow!

Hello everyone! I know I've been kind of quiet these past few months, but I'm still here and I'm still designing! Sometimes real life just gets in the way, y'know? It's been a hard year for me...but I hope to design more and focus solely on my blog and brand in 2017.

Last year I entered my Ballerina Mouse design in the annual amigurumi design contest and came 5th, so this year I'm hoping to do just as well with a completely new design - meet Mallow! This time the theme was "monsters" which I was really excited about. There are no limits, design and imagination wise, when it comes to monsters. They can be any size, shape or colour. 2 eyes or 6 eyes? Fangs or a toothy grin? I couldn't wait to get started!

Houses, Hippos & Apologies

Hi! I'm alive & I come baring gifts!
Happy 2016 everyone! Do you know I just had to double check with my computer calendar which year it actually is? That's how frazzled I am at the moment. I may not be sure of what year it is but I do know that April is way, way too late for my first post of the year. When I started this blog my aim was to try and release one new pattern every month and one free pattern round up at the end of every month. I feel so annoyed with myself for letting things in my personal life get on top of me - so much so that my little blog has been pretty much neglected. I'm sorry to my regular readers who have been wondering where I've disappeared to!

Free Pattern Friday - November (10 Free Christmas Crochet Patterns)

1. Murray The Merry Reindeer / 2. Elf Family / 3. Christmas Wreath Ornament / 4. Christmas Coasters / 4. Striped Snowman / 6. Little Santa / 7. Reindeer / 8. Christmas Character Ornaments / 9. Snowman & Bird / 10. Christmas Elf

November's Free Pattern Friday is a week late I'm afraid! I've not been feeling very well at all for the past few weeks (winter blues perhaps) and haven't felt up to blogging, designing or doing much of anything recently. However it hasn't stopped my Pinterest addiction and trying to hunt down the best free crochet/amigurumi patterns the internet has to offer! All through November I've been pinning and sharing lots of wonderful free Christmas patterns and here are 10 of my absolute favourites. I added my Christmas Elf pattern in there too - just to be a bit cheeky!
Sorry for the delay, I know a few of you out there look forward to Free Pattern Friday! If, like me, you love free patterns make sure to like Heart & Sew on Facebook where I share a new free amigurumi pattern every single day!
