Ballerina Bunny - Free Crochet / Amigurumi Pattern


This post contains affiliate links.

Ballerina Bunny just loves to dance! Due to the popularity of my Ballerina Mouse pattern I thought I'd design a little bunny dancer too! The mouse was the first pattern I ever designed and I have come a long way since then.  This ballerina pattern is totally different to the mouse. The tutu is better, the feet have more shape and she has a little, white pom pom tail! On the whole this pattern is a lot cleaner. I may redesign my mouse with the new improved body, what do you think?

Knit Pro, Paige's Painting's & Hobium Giveaway


I'm a happy hooker and I have the balls to prove it! Seriously, I do. Hundreds of them. Don't open my wardrobe unless you want to be snowed under in a yarn avalanche. When I saw this amazing, hand painted shopping bag from Paige's Paintings I just had to have one for my craft store shopping expeditions! Knowing my readers would love one too, the talented artist behind these bags was kind enough to provide another for my little giveaway! Thank you Gemma!

Hobium Yarns Review


I love being let loose in my local craft store. Seriously, I'm like a kid in a candy shop. I spend hours looking at all the different craft tools and materials, juggling an armful of yarn, sewing kits and felt until Tom puts his foot down and goes off looking for a basket. He eventually gets bored and wanders off to look at model kits or paints (Tom is an excellent painter) and leaves me floating blissfully around the yarn aisles. I love these kind of days out so much that I've never really considered going craft shopping online before. However, when a brand new online craft store called Hobium Yarns got in touch and offered me a little spending spree in return for an honest review on my blog... how could I say no?
