This is a quick and fun project producing cute ornaments for your home or to give as a gift to your loved ones.

Although my home is now being protected by quite a few of these lovely happy angels, I am really looking for the holidays to place them on my Christmas tree and to gift them to my friends and family.

Great News! More Payment Options Now Available In My Etsy Shop!

If you are into handmade goods and art, you might have already heard about Etsy – a wonderful marketplace for independent artisans.

I’ve had a crochet pattern store on Etsy for almost five years now (wooow, how time flies!) and I have to say that I have always felt so great for having that opportunity. It became clear to me from the very beginning that the people behind Etsy were fully dedicated to their job/mission and that their main priority was to bring the best services possible to both sellers and customers. They definitely strive for continues improvement.

And these days the Etsy folks have achieved one of their big goals which I think I should definitely let you know about (since many of you, dear readers and crocheters, asked me about this). To be more specific, up till now, if you wanted to purchase a pattern in my shop, the only way to pay was by using PayPal. But things have changed for better! Since Etsy has recently widened the group of countries where Direct Checkout is possible, my shop now offers all kinds of payment options including credit cards, debit/bank cards, iDEAL (Netherlands only), Sofort (Austria and Germany), Google Wallet, Apple Pay, even Etsy Gift Cards.

I know this might mean that some of you who were not able to obtain one of my patterns in the past will be able to do so now. And that makes me really happy.

Happy crocheting!

Love,
Petra

New Crochet Pattern – A Baby’s First Teddy Bear

When I was just expecting my baby a couple of months ago and shared the news with you here on this site, one of my sweet readers replied to my post with a message saying that the baby will have it really nice with a mom who can make a teddy bear for him.

I loved the idea and it kept reappearing in mind until I thought it was high time to make it reality.

That thing just needed to be done.

I visualized what the teddy bear could look like to be appropriate for my now six months old baby. I wanted it to be cute first of all. And I also wanted it to be easy to lift and move around.

So I crocheted and crocheted and then crocheted some more and after a few days of work a little teddy bear was born.

I am happy to report that my little boy welcomed his new buddy very warmly. He likes to hug him, squeeze him, throw him as far as he can and these days, as a big new thing, he is even learning how to crawl towards him.

We take the little teddy with us wherever we go and he works very well as a small cushion for pushchair or car seat naptime.

Of course, as usual, I have put together a pattern for those of you who would like to make a teddy bear like this one too. The pattern is is full op step-by-step pictures and is really easy to follow (… if I may say so myself).

You can find the pattern HERE or HERE.

I wish you happy crocheting and to the kids in your life I wish a lot of fun playing with their new buddy.

With lots of love,

New Pattern – Crochet Chevron Infinity Scarf

Hi friends!

I have a new pattern for you today! It’s Crochet Chevron Infinity Scarf.

I have been wanting to make a crochet infinity scarf for quite a long time, all I was trying to decide on was the design that I’d like the best. And lately it occurred to me it just has to be chevron. What else?! Those soothing zig zags. The sea or relaxing ripples. Such sweetness.

After a quick trip to the shop to find nice and contrasting couple of yarn colors I set of to work.
