Well, I certainly hope that all of you had a wonderful Easter and didn’t go overboard on the sweets, like I did! I had plans of showing gorgeous carved eggs (that you can see here), or at the very least sharing a cute GIF (which can be seen here). Somehow those never came to fruition. I think I’ve been stuck in some kind of slow-motion gear that I can’t seem to get out of. However, I did get into the Easter spirit and decided to try out a pattern that I fell in love with some time ago. It’s the sweet “Little crochet bunny pattern” from Amigurumi Today (available for free here).

I do have yarn appropriate for making this, but I ran into a problem. The yarn is fuzzy and I was having great difficulty seeing the stitches. So I decided to switch to another yarn I have – sock weight without all the fuzz. Even though my version isn’t quite as cute as the original, I still think it turned out ok. Mine just looks a bit sleepy!

Arthur took pity on my Sleepy Bunny and shared one of his heart pillows with her, originally seen here. I decided that Arthur shouldn’t have to sit on a box anymore, so I ordered a comfy retro-modern chair for him. However, I need to find a way to wire him, because Arthur has a terrible problem with falling apart. (The chair, while being very stylish, won’t give him a lot of support.) I did find a site that showed how to make an “upholstered” chair and I think Arthur would be ecstatic if I could make one of those for him – but crocheted, of course. Perhaps this will be my next project? But only after I finish the current WIPs…..

Arthur and I want to wish you the happiest of Valentine’s Days! Arthur is feeling quite dapper in his top hat and bow tie, and he really likes his new tri-heart pillow. Even though he hasn’t had a girlfriend in quite some time, hope springs eternal in his romantic heart – he’s believes that this year just might be his year. I promised I would try my best to find him a friend, and that if I can’t find him one, I’ll do my best to crochet something for him!

These “Puffy Hearts” have been designed by Repeat Crafter Me and the free pattern is available at http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2017/01/crochet-puffy-hearts.html. I used a fingering yarn and a 1.90mm hook. The hearts came out to be 2″ wide and 1 1/2″ tall – perfect size for a key chain or hair accessory. I crocheted the top hat, but alas, black is very difficult to photograph well – especially for a non-professional!

Have a wonderful day, and have a piece of chocolate for me!

Last year I posted several fantastic crocheted hearts for Valentine’s Day (see For the Sweethearts), but I didn’t really want to repeat that, lovely as it was. So for this year I decided to gather some adorable, amusing, and all around delightful examples of small, miniature, or micro crochet to honor the romantic holiday.

I just love these two! I copied them from Pinterest (where I’ve gotten all these pics), but I couldn’t find where they originally came from. If you know, please post the info in the comments section. And as an added bonus, several of the following offer free patterns!

Once again it is Valentine’s Day – a wonderful reminder to let our loved ones know how special they are to us. So for today, since I can’t send all of you mountains of chocolate, I will offer you the following crocheted eye candies – all with zero calories!
