Dragon Amigurumi

Whether you think they’re scary or adorable, dragon amigurumi is awesome! Have you seen some of the great creative patterns out there? There are so many beautifully designed crocheted dragon stuffed toy patterns that it might be hard for you to choose one. I’ve narrowed it down for you so you can find the best ones here. Check out these beautiful patterns!

This classic, adorable dragon amigurumi pattern is named Drake the Dragon. He has a sweet round face and lovely striped wings. Any kid would be pleased to receive a gorgeous stuffed toy made with this stunning looking pattern from Moji Moji Designs!

This Raspberry Dragon amigurumi crochet pattern comes with adorable accessory patterns: the giant raspberry and the super sweet little butterfly! She’s sure to be a favourite!

If you’re up for a bigger project, this Life-size Baby Dragon Pattern would make a delightful and stunning gift for a dragon-loving knight! If you start now, you’ll have time to finish this incredible crocheted dragon pattern from Overton Fancies before Christmas!

If you’re looking for something a little smaller, this proud-looking Zodiac Egg dragon crochet pattern is colourful and stately! What a fun looking amigurumi dragon pattern from Little Bamboo Handmade!

While he’s not really a dragon, this super sweet Kyo the Baby Triceratops should definitely be included in these cute dragon amigurumi crochet patterns. Aren’t the mythical dragon creatures based off of dinosaurs anyway? Who doesn’t love a triceratops? Especially babies.

And while we’re on things that we don’t typically think of when we’re talking crocheted stuffed dragon patterns, there’s this super fun and realistic-looking Bearded Dragon amigurumi pattern. This would be a fun gift to make for a child and a good compromise for a kid who wants a new pet, but the parents do not! Amigurumis make the best pets because you never have to feed them or clean up after them and they never get sick or die. Who could ask for a better pet?

Can we really have a round-up of dragon patterns that doesn’t include a Toothless Amigurumi Pattern from How to Train Your Dragon? There are plenty of kids would be delighted to get a stuffed amigurumi dragon like this one!

Crochet in the Summertime

Did you know that some people think yarn crafts are only for winter and fall? Crazy, right?! I get it, though. If it’s sweltering outside, the last thing you might want to do is sit under a heavy afghan while you crochet (though, with office air conditioning, I still feel like I need a sweater at work!). Well, regardless of the temperature, there are plenty of patterns you can make in the relaxing summer months, that don’t have to make you sweat. Check out some of these great summer finds!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Instead of thinking garments like sweaters and toques, you can make decor, like this Fresh Fringe Banner by Candace from Wildflower Crochet Co. I met Candace at the knit night before Our Maker Life this year and she was working on one of these beauties. It comes together starting in triangle pieces, so you can travel with it while you make it. (She also has some finished items if you don’t crochet or don’t have time to make one!).

I’m a big fan of these gorgeous summer dresses, made from pieced together crocheted motifs. This crocheted dress would be perfect to make during the spring or summer and wear on the beach or at the resort during your winter getaway.

Sophie and Me Pdf Pattern Design also has a lovely summer dress crochet pattern that would definitely be worth your time! I love the beachy vibes of this Florence Granny Lace Dress/Top! The pattern is so versatile, you can make it either a top or a dress!

For another beachy pattern, check out this gorgeous Butterfly Crochet Crop Top! I love the sexy, strappy look of this cute top!

I can’t get enough of these bright and lively mandalas! This Spanish Mandala crochet pattern has instructions for making it into a round colourful cushion! I think the colours and design are just stunning and the different stitches look like a joy to make!

Summertime is also a great time to be making some amigurumi! This adorable Clyde the Monkey crochet pattern is so fun and if you want to get a head start on your holiday making, this little guy is perfect!

For a quick project you can use right away, this sweet Luna Headband crochet pattern is perfect for keeping your hair out of your face this summer!

The Steffy Crochet Headband Pattern is another quick stash-busting crochet pattern that is perfect to throw in your handbag to keep your hands busy while travelling. Lightweight and cheeky, this charming headband requires just 200 yards of yarn! Perfect summer project!

This bath mitt makes a great year-round project and a perfect little gift for anyone from your coworker to your mother in law! You can make them up with some lightweight cotton yarn in the summer and be all ready for the gift-giving season!

Summer is also a great time to make up a new handbag. This textured Macie Handbag Crochet Pattern is a summer bag pattern that’s just a little different!

There are so many great patterns you can make in the summer and for summer, you never have to stop making! Pick up a pattern today and make one of these gorgeous designs! Or pin it for later!

Our Maker Life

Today is Our Maker Life make meet up! I’m so pleased that I was able to get a ticket! It’s in Calgary, which is less than 3 hours’ drive for me, which is also great news! And it happens to be my and Mr Evangelist’s anniversary that day, so he is coming down with me and we are having a little getaway on the side! He’s such a good sport about my maker life… it’s OUR maker life! haha

Anyway, in honour of Our Maker Life, I wanted to highlight the OML 2019 presenters and their patterns! Check out these great designers and pick up one of their fabulous patterns. Support individual makers: their creativity and discipline in putting out incredible designs make this maker life so much more rich!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

One of my all-time favourite designers is Stephanie from All About Ami. It was only in the last year or so that I learned she was from Edmonton, just like me! I’m so excited to meet her and hear her speak at OML! She designs beautiful knit and crochet patterns, from amigurumi to garments and bags, baskets, blankets & more! Her pdf patterns are really reasonably-priced, and you can even get them for free on her blog! The pattern above is her new Wildrose Backpack Crochet Pattern, which I’ve been meaning to make, but there’s just so much to make!!!

This Spring Bunnies Crochet pattern is an example of some of her great amigurumi patterns. These would make an adorable baby shower gift or a super sweet handmade Easter gift!

The Midtown Cardigan knitting pattern is a beautiful example of one of her wearable knit designs. I’m thinking I’m going to put this one on the docket to make this fall…

The other keynote speaker for OML 2019 is Chantal from Knitatude. She is from Calgary and I’m super excited to meet her and learn from her as well! She has a whole shop full of great knit garment patterns. I really like the Easy Eyelet Yoke Lite Sweater Pattern above. It looks like a lovely design to wear in warmer months and would layer well for the cooler seasons!

I also love this Cozy Celtic Raglan Cable Knit Sweater. Maybe it’s the gorgeous mustard coloured yarn that it’s made with, but I love the chunky yarn and the cozy jumbo cowl with the cropped body! Super cute!

Chantel’s knit dress patterns are absolutely to die for! This super cute Diamond Knit Dress pattern has made an appearance on my blog before, but it’s so cute, I can’t stop telling you about it!

As you might be able to imagine, many makers who are attending OML 2019 are making their own garments to wear. You can check them out on Instagram using the hashtag #dressmeupOML19. I have made myself one of these gorgeous Peaks Crochet Tank Tops in a sunshiney yellow! Bonus: this pattern is free from hookedbyanna.com!

I plan to be thoroughly enjoying OML today! Have a great maker day today! Pin this for later and to share with your friends! Oh, and happy anniversary, Mr Evangelist!

For the Love of Soccer

For the Love of Soccer: 10 crochet patterns

So, the Women’s World Cup is over and maybe everyone’s done with soccer for now, but in my world, soccer is never over. My youngest LIVES for soccer, loves soccer, breathes soccer. Soccer. Soccer. Soccer. Don’t tell him, but I think I have enough time to make him a soccer-themed birthday gift. What should I make?

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

soccer ball and basket crochet pattern

There’s this awesome little crochet soccer ball and basket pattern that he could put all his little trinkets in. And you can never have too many soccer balls, especially if they are stuffed because winter is a long season here and we must get our touches in.

Or maybe a hat? This soccer ball hat crochet pattern is pretty cool.

Or maybe just a straight up soccer ball. Multi-coloured like this one? Or traditional black and white?

John the Mexican Soccer Player amigurumi crochet pattern

Or maybe he would like a soccer player. It probably wouldn’t be too hard to customize this doll to reflect your favourite team… but he’d probably want me to make a whole team for him.

I suppose if I procrastinate and don’t have much time left, I could always make him one of these adorable soccer ball key chains. They’d also make fun zipper pulls!

Or I could whip up a few of these sports-themed appliques and attach them to his backpack.

Ok, my little guy is too big for these, but THEY’RE SO CUTE! Someone has to make them! These little soccer cleat booties would make such a fun gift for a soccer-loving parent of a newborn!

Here’s another adorable pattern I would consider if my little guy were littler. This Newborn Soccer Hat and Diaper Cover crochet pattern would make up a super cute photo prop!

It’s a little hard to tell from this picture, but if it’s like 3amgracedesigns other patterns, it is probably more like a cushion-type of pattern, not a round soccer ball. But I think my little guy would love this Soccer Ball Kawaii Cuddler.

I am kind of leaning towards making him a blanket, if I could find some wonderfully soft yarn for him to cozy up with, I think I might totally make him this soccer ball blanket in a corner to corner crochet pattern.

Which do you like? Pin your favorite!

Knit & Crochet for Kids

Kids are going to be out of school for summer soon. And some already are. Do you want to teach your kids to knit or crochet this summer? It’s so great to have the kids looking at something besides screens and keeping busy. Check out some of these great patterns to make for your kids or to teach them to make!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Check out this beginner Crochet Triangle Scarf Pattern! These triangular scarves are super trendy right now. This simple pattern would be a great first project for a young teen to make this summer and wear to back school in the fall!

The Serena Top is a simple and cute kids’ crochet crop top that your little one could make (or you could make for them!).

While the crochet pattern for this Cheeseburger Beanie is more of an intermediate level project, it’s great to show kids the fun things they can make while they’re learning, to help them persevere through the first wonky stitches (or projects!).

While also another project more suited for a more experienced crafter to make for kids, this quiet book crochet pattern is just the right idea for summer projects!

Need to improve your crochet skills for one of these projects? Check out Blueprint’s online crochet classes and learn at your own pace!

I know I was just encouraging looking at something besides screens, but isn’t this Joe the Frog Book/Tablet Holder adorable? And he can hold books as well! So fun!

Another lovely summer top crochet pattern that is perfect for beginners is this Hippie Fringe Granny Square Top. Isn’t it fun in these rainbow colours? And that fringe is very on trend right now!

Here’s another great crochet poncho pattern to make for kids for back to school. This Modern Bobble Poncho is an easy to memorize pattern you can work on during your summer road trip and your kid can try it on when you make gas station stops!

While this is also another project that an intermediate knitter would need to make, I couldn’t help but drawing the attention of knitters to this gorgeous child’s sweater pattern! The Bohéme Sweater for kids is a stunning knitting pattern for sizes 4-10. Such a classic, but modern look!

This Easy Peasy Beginner Hat Knitting Pattern is the perfect place to start kids knitting a hat! Chunky yarn means fewer stitches that are easier to see, so it works up quickly and has a satisfying finish rate!

Need to sharpen your knitting skills to take on one of these projects? Check out some online knitting classes from Blueprint!

Then you can show your kids the gorgeous hats they could knit when they have some more experience! The Madison Beanie Knitting Pattern is a great project for the advanced beginner/intermediate knitter!

More pretties for babies! This knitting pattern for the Maelynn Newborn Bonnet would make the perfect newborn photography prop!

This sweet Poncho the Donkey crochet pattern would also make a lovely start to your farm animal toys. I love his legs attached with buttons! So adorable!

Of course, what farm is complete without a pig? This super sweet little Hamlet the Pig amigurumi pattern is adorable and would be a perfect, unexpected little animal friend for any child!

Vest Patterns

I found some great patterns for you to check out today! Vests. Are they cool? I hope so, because I’m really liking them lately! Which one do you like?

This lacy Daydreamer Crochet Vest pattern from Megmade with Love looks easy and carefree. Don’t you love that fringe?

In a similar style, but with a little more warmth, The Wanderer Vest from KayKrochets also boasts an adorable fringe… and maybe a little less chain stitch!

I’m LOVING this faux fur crocheted vest pattern from Mama in a Stitch. This is definitely near the top of my list and is a fantastic use of Lion Brand’s new Go For Faux yarn.

I think knitting might be a little easier with this Go For Faux yarn though. I think it’d be easier to keep track of your stitches if they were on your needles all the time. This Go For Faux Vest knitting pattern from Knitatude looks simple and cute.

Another long fringe-y vest pattern… hmmm… I wonder what I should make? I keep looking at really similar patterns, so… ? hahaha. Also, I love the name of this vest from Hopeful Honey Designs: Whispering Birch Bohemian Vest.

My mind doesn’t immediately go to a pattern like this for a vest, but this Chain Link Armored Cowl Crocheted Vest Pattern from Woods and Wool Shop is super cozy looking.

I’m also quite liking this asymmetrical crocheted vest pattern: The Sherwood Vest from Newborn Knots: simple and trendy. Also, I love large buttons like that.

Here’s another knitting pattern for the knitters in the bunch. This Justice Vest Knitting Pattern from Bromefields is a great beginner pattern. Even as a more advanced knitter, sometimes a beginner pattern is just so refreshing because you can make it look amazing without as much effort or concentration as a more advanced pattern.

If you’re looking for a vest pattern, be sure to check some of these out and pin it to share with your friends!

Cute Crocheted Cushions

Winter time is a great time to decorate! It’s a great time to do some online shopping (since who feels like leaving the house?) and it’s a great time to order your supplies and make some handmade decor items. I’m somewhat of a throw pillow convert, in that I used to be much more boring and practical and didn’t see why a person would want so many pillows around when they just seem to get in the way of sitting and sleeping and whatnot. But there are so many cute options, so I’ve come around! And now I’ve found so many fun patterns to make your own (and I’ve got a pattern idea in the works for a special custom pillow for my craft room… wait and see!!!). Check out the great patterns that I’ve found to make your own crafty pillows!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Starting off today’s pattern round-up is this adorable floral-embellished crocheted cushion pattern from Annie Design. I love the lacy texture on this pillow cover and the sweet little floral appliques really add a delicate touch.

Decor embellished with words is still totally on trend, so if you’re into that kind of thing, this crochet pattern for this rustic “blessed” throw cushion is a sweet farmhouse style pattern by Two Little Birds Patterns.

This adorable Love to Cuddle Pillow crochet pattern from The Turtle Trunk utilizes the popular faux fur (get some here) to make this completely cuddle-able cushion, perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s day holiday!

If you’re looking to throw some different shapes of cushions into your decor, you can try this textured round flower pillow cover pattern from Crochet Spot Patterns.

This adorable heart pillow crochet pattern from Peach and Paige Designs would be sweet in a nursery or a little girl’s bedroom. Also, what a fun Valentine’s pattern to work on!

So many of the fibre artists I know are loving llamas lately, so this super adorable Alpaca Llama Pillow from Anne Alster is completely on trend! (Also, she has many other adorable crochet patterns for pillows that will make you smile: check out her shop!)

Monogrammed pillows would make for a lovely wedding gift, don’t ya think? Or super fun for a kid’s bedroom, as well. Check out these Brixton Monogram Pillow Crochet Patterns also from Two Little Birds Patterns.

Of course, for some reason, the poop emoji pillow is a thing. Kids are so weird. But if yours seems to have a fascination with poop emojis, perhaps you would like to make them this bizarre pillow pattern from Soul Moon Rising?

Personally, I’d much rather have one of these Shark Pillows hanging around in my kids’ rooms. Super fun and whimsical crochet pattern from Spina Yarn Studio.

Which of these crocheted cushions tickles your fancy? Go get yourself a pattern today and get making! It’s so rewarding to make your own decor! Pin it to share with your friends!
