Pink Floyd Crochet Hammers

Pink Floyd Crochet Hammers

 

This was a request from my brother-in-law (We both love Pink Floyd) he wanted me to crochet the hammers out of ‘The Wall’ film. I warned him before I started that I didn’t think it would look good and tried to persuade him towards a normal square pillow with the hammers put onto the pillow, but nooo, he thought he knew best. So here they are, freehand crochet Pink Floyd hammers, which fall, flop and generally look odd

Batman’s Harley Quinn Crochet Doll

Batman Harley Quinn Crochet Doll

 

I love Batman, but not why most people love him. I love the villains of the Batman franchise, mainly Joker and his on/off girl friend and insane psychiatrist Harley Quinn. I did this crochet doll based loosely on the Batman  Arkham Asylum game series. So thought I’d post it here on Happy Crocheting.

I did this crochet amigurmi doll freehand but hopefully if you want to make your own Harley Quinn Crocheted Doll this post will help you where to start.

 

It only took a few hours to crochet Harley Quinn and then a little sewing for her shirt. She’s a cute little doll.

Anyway until next time Happy Crocheting!

Simple Crochet Pillows with Text

Love Home Crochet Pillow

 

In August I began asking people if they wanted anything in particular crocheted for Christmas (Yes, that’s right, I said August – the older I get the more crazy organised I become. 10 years down the line I’ll be doing my Crochet Christmas prep in January!). My sister asked for some pillows for her living room which is beige and duck egg blue. This was quite a quick project and I think I managed to complete it within a week. Read More button for a break down on how I made them.

Free Granny Pentagons, Hexagons & Heptagons Patterns

Hello Fellow Crocheters! I was feeling very kind this week so thought I’d share some patterns with you all. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to do african flower Granny Pentagons, Hexagons & Heptagons which would be smaller than the usual ones around the net to help make smaller (equaling CUTER) amigurui toys. You can also make afgan blankets or pillow out of them too!

Happy Crocheting!

Cliff Richard Crochet Doll

Cliff Richard Crochet Doll

 

Another Crochet request, my mum’s friend sister who absolutely loves Cliff Richard, apparently she has loads of merchandise for him. So I decided to crochet her a Cliff Richard doll. I’m not sure why, but I used a 2mm needle for this – it took forever. It was really fun to create something which I knew would be loved and cuddle all the time so I took my time and made sure everything was sown together twice so hopefully it won’t break. I even bought some felt and created a little white suit jacket he worn on one of his album covers, then a cut out the letters to spell cliff on the back and using OPI glitter nail varnish added a bit of sparkle to the lettering. I was quite proud of the result so thought I’d share on Happy crocheting. (more…)

A Freehand Crochet Pug

Freehand Crochet Pug amigurumi My niece is crazy about Pugs! All she does is talk about Pugs, wear clothes with pugs on them, pugs pug pug!

Unfortunately for her they have a Jack Russel. So for her birthday I crocheted her, her own Pug. Now I did this freehand so sorry their isn’t a crochet pattern. One thing I learned was; it was the first amigurumi  I’d done with a crochet hook bigger than 2mm – I used a 5mm hook and it made a huge difference, I managed to make a good sized toy in two nights! Lesson learnt!

At first I put the arms on midway down the pug’s body, he looked stupid so I had to unpick it and crochet it back on further up the pug’s body.

Have any of you made pugs? Or any other crochet dogs? They seem to be all the rage at the moment, let me know in the comments below. Happy Crocheting guys!
