Sunflower, door stopper cover

We have a door stopper, the rubber around was old it fell off and is no more…

so my husband suggested that I crochet a cover for it, to have something softer for the door to land on but also look good. I loved the idea, so I made the decision to make a sunflower, as I love them, they are so pretty…

I had no pattern, so for the sunflower I used this YouTube video and the rest I did some trial and errors until I got the perfect fit.

Crocodile stitch bag

I wanted to learn to crochet Crocodile stitch, so I went on YouTube and found a tutorial on a bag I liked and went for it. Found the strap on another tutorial and added that one to the bag instead.

First I used this video to learn how to do this and get the general idea.

For the bag I used this video
(did one alteration to the base of the bag, to make it match, I did 1 DC in one of the 7 stitches at the end and 2 DC in the rest of them on each side).

Then for the strap I used this video, it begins at 25 min and 50 sec.




Cute crochet bookmarks

Few more FNoF amigurimi!

So, here are few more five nights at Freddy’s amigurimi, Foxy and Chica, both boys were happy with them.
It is so much fun and wonderful feeling to make these for my boys and see them be so happy with them and also coming with more requests for stuff for me to make for them… It is kinda fun!

Ran out of blue textile marker but my son used one of his blue markers to finish it off…
