Days 7-15. Taking form

Days 7-15. It's a #handmadechristmas. Lots of crocheting on the train this week. Surely you can guess what I'm making now 😉. #dittocrafts #crochet #Amigurumi #wip
Handmade Christmas Progress

Check out those shoes!! Well you can't really tell they are shoes yet, but they are cute. Yes I am making Ballerina Mice for my nieces. Both dancing obsessed at the moment. I have visions of them taking their Ballerina dolls to concerts for years to come, fingers crossed that will be a reality. 

They are really taking form now. I'm getting some very inquisitive looks on the train but more and more people are starting to ask what I'm making. I used to just stick with easy projects for the train, but I'm now getting very adventurous. Haven't pulled out the stuffing yet though ;-). If you are ever on a Hurstbridge train in Melbourne and see me crocheting away, stop and say hi :-).

The pattern I am using for this project is by lilleliis and can be found on etsy. I want to try so many of her other projects too. I'm checking out her free bunny pattern so I can use up all that pink i'll have left over!!

Have you found a great pattern lately? Please share.

Days 4-6 Progress

Days 4,5,6. It's a handmade christmas
Progress days 4-6

Check out that pink!!!! Not a colour I am used crocheting with, so bright. I'm not a pink girl, but my niece is. Both of my boys have gone through a pink phase, but not bright pink.

I'm going to have heaps of it left over, now I need to work out what I can make with it! Pink dinosaurs maybe?

Day 3 Progress

I'm not used to such a large project!! These 100g balls are causing a bit of a storage problem. Hopefully they will minimise considerably. I've got more colours to add though ;-).

I'm really enjoying making on the train again, and these girls are coming along really quickly. I'm a bit behind in writing about them, but that's ok. If you want to skip ahead check out my Instagram (look for dittocrafts) or flickr (click on the picture above).

Dino Family

Family portrait pic two :-)
My Little Dino Family

It's a dino family!! I made most of these ages ago, you can see the little brown one in my banner, that was the first and is Little O. But AJ was bugging me to make his too. Don't know why it took so long for me to get around to it. They are quick to make, so he finally picked a colour and the yellow one was born. So now we have all 4 of us, in dino.

My version of a family portrait. Hubby, me and both boys in dino :-)
Too cute to handle

So cute!

Handmade Christmas 2014

Day 1. It's a handmade christmas
work in progress
Hello totally neglected blog! It appears having two blogs doesn't increase blog writing, it just makes you ignore both ;-). Well I'm hoping that will change! This blog is after all meant for my personal craft making, not making for Ditto Crafts. So here is what I'm making at the moment. Gifts for my neices for Christmas. Can you guess what it will be?
