Gnomes, Kindle Cases and Elephants

Alright, so I found a couple more I hadn't posted.  And wanted to add those in real quick.

First off, I have one of my most favorite creations.  I looked and looked and looked for a pattern for this little guy, but found nothing even close to what I wanted to accomplish.  I made him out of thread, size 10 I think.  with a size 10 hook.  He was a gift for my SIL who also loves gnomes, and I made a little mushroom figurine to go with him.

For size reference.

 Next up, I have a kindle case I made for my sister back in November.  Her Kindle is in a cover, and so I made it to fit a kindle with a protective cover on it.  After taking these pictures, I added a pocket onto the back, for a clip light she has.  I wish I had pictures of that, but I didn't get the camera out as I finished that.

And finally, I am not sure if I shared this one, I may have.  But here's a stuffed elephant I made for my daughter.  She isn't that into it.  But her older brother likes to play with it, so maybe she will grow into the idea of stuffed animals when she's older.

I've also got some pictures of about 8-10 hats/scarves I made for Christmas gifts all laid out together on the coffee table.  A sack-boy from Little Big Planet, and some toddler slippers.  I've also been trying my skills on writing some of my own patterns to share.  So hopefully those will be upcoming this month.  Happy Crocheting everyone!!


  1. These are great! Of course..I'm a little biased about the gnome :P And I think it's funny we both made kindle cases for kindles already with a protective cover lol! It'll be the next big thing!

  2. Oh my gosh! I love love love the gnome! It's awesome!

  3. Thanks! :) It was a special gift. ANd one of my favorite things I've ever made!
