Fox Gunther

Ask someone to draw a fox quickly and they probably come up with something like this. I must admit that I'm truly in love with this design of La Maison Victor. The best thing is, that this pattern is free! You will find it here: Fox Gunther

This time no bunnies, but bears! Starts also with a B, but that's entirely coincidental.
They ask me to make something for a baby boy. I immediately knew what to make! Pinterest is a good source for inspiration and pattern. I found this big bear earlier that week, but at that moment I knew this was the perfect time to make this. It's cute and tough at the same time.


Have a nice weekend!

Tote bag with heart

My new favorite bag!

 A few weeks ago, my grandmother gave me some cotton. She found it somewhere at the ceiling. It was about 30 years old, it has some spots in it... but it's white, so that's not a problem. After you made your work, put it in some water with some chlorine, and it will be perfect white again.
The moment I saw the cotton, I knew what I was going to make. A TOTE BAG!
I used the filet crochet technique. Perfect to make figures within your crochet work. I decided to make a lovely heart, it's clear to see when you use it.
Furthermore I bought some leather handles, with gives the bag a tougher appearance.

Do you want to filet crochet something as well, check out this site for some explanation (in English and Dutch).

Have a nice weekend!

Bunnies, bunnies, and bunnies

Did I already tell you that I love to crochet bunnies? ;) 
I collected all my crocheted bunnies in one picture!
Aren't they lovely?!

Lovely Flamingos

I often crochet bunnies, because they look so cute. Another animal I really like, because of its color and shape, is a flamingo! I especially do like the different shades of pink and orange.
In one of my crochet books (Amigurumi & mini's) I found a pattern of these cuties. I could use it as key chain or something, but for the time being, they are decorating my living room.

Kind regards,

Pattern: Finger puppet bunny

I really like bunnies, they are so soft and cute. Full of innocence. I saw some finger puppets at Pinterest and became inspired. I thought let's make a finger puppet bunny. Love the result, and love to share it with you. If you made a finger puppet based on my pattern, share a picture on Facebook with me! I'm really looking forward to your versions of this lovely one.
