In case you missed the fun, yesterday we had a popularity contest for the Greybriar Hollow pattern. It was definitely fun! There was one clear winner, but before we get to that, lets take a look at the runners up. This was definitely a contest for the record books. And the contenders were all as different as they could be.
First up in 2nd place was Sharknado. In like a whirling dervish, this is the pattern who definitely preferred cutting up in shop class over academics. Sharknado is not limited by what science tells us can happen, but is always up for a ripping good time.
In 3rd pace we have Lucy Morbid. She is the creepy pattern who sits in the corner and makes cryptic and dark comments to other patterns. She is the one you go to when you need to learn more about the darker side of ami making.
In 4th place, is Fat Unicorn. She is the chubby pattern who is super nice to everyone, but really doesn’t fit into any specific group. She is too short and round to fit in with the other unicorns and their vain beauty, but everyone loves her anyway.
In 5th place, is everyone’s favorite witch pattern. Winnifred is just waiting to be made for some unsuspecting child so she can practice putting spells on them. She is still seeking youth, even though she is always going to be same age since she will of course be made from yarn.
In 6th place is Sugar Skull Cat. She is the artsy pattern, all about freedom of expression and letting your true colors show. There is no wrong way to add color and design in her world. She loves it all equally, but she tends to be caught up in art to the exclusion of all else.
And last in 7th place is everyone’s favorite couple. Eartha and Edgar Fox pattern is just an all around fun time, and everyone loves them. They are kind and thoughtful, the kind of pattern everyone wants to be around.
And now, the time has come to announce our winner. Like any beauty queen, she came out WAY ahead, but her message is one of peace of serenity. She has no idea of her own grace, content to spend her time bringing joy to others……Serenity!!!
Let’s give a round of applause to our winner and runners up. And now the details you have all been waiting for!
Because Serenity hit 200 favorites on Ravelry, I have decided to offer 200 free copies of her pattern! These are limited use, and when they are gone they are gone. The code you need to know is SERENITYLOVE But that is not all. I know the codes will go super fast, so I wanted to offer one final deal! Add Serenity to your cart with ANY other pattern and get her free. This is good through Friday at midnight. Thank you all for your support and your votes!! All patterns can be found in my Ravelry shop. Click the image below to transport there automatically!
I was on Facebook a while back and saw a picture that made me chuckle. It was one of those days when I felt fabulous, and yet I could totally relate. Let’s face it, after 7 kids, I definitely have a few rolls. I try to remind myself that fabulous or as I have started calling it- Unicorn, is a state of mind!
Then I got to thinking- in the wake of all the cutesy unicorns, that we needed a fat unicorn, for those days when you feel totally fabulous- or the days when you need to be reminded that you are totally fabulous. Not all unicorns are tiny little things. Wherever you are, right now- you can be a unicorn too!
For the first 100 downloads, using the code FABULOUS will get you a copy of Fat Unicorn for free. After those 100 downloads are gone, she will be 2.00. Everyone deserves to feel Unicorn!
My kids love to play video games. And usually that means they come to me to make them characters from their favorite games. Usually I have no idea what these characters look like (thank you Google!!) but I do try to accommodate them if I can. Their newest love is Undertale. I have a whole batch of Undertale characters coming out, but the first one is Sans. He was actually a birthday gift for my daughter, but when my friends saw it, they all said they needed the pattern too! Turns out my kids aren’t the only ones who like video games and random characters. My testers are finishing up Sans, and he should be available for release next weekend. Which characters would you like to see made next?
Turtles are such an important part of our family. Growing up, my aunt was on the rescue list for both box turtles and endangered desert tortoises. She has always had them. Then I met my now husband. His Native American name is Turtle and it could not be more fitting. As a result, my house is resplendent with turtles. So, when I decided to make an ocean themed pattern, and my hippocapus gave me fits, I turned to the sea turtle. My dear friend Berta encouraged me through the making and shaping of the fins, and in crafting her, I found a deep peace in creating that has been missing this last month. And so Serenity was born. Her pattern is currently with my testers, but she is going to be released on Friday and I am giving away 2 copies of her pattern! You can head over to my Facebook page and check out the pinned post for details! How do you find Serenity in your life?
While a lot of what happens here is creepy and creepy cute, sometimes we just get cute. Today is my youngest baby’s third birthday, and he loves the PJ Masks. Despite being on Disney channel, it is remarkable how many people are not familiar with this cartoon. The characters are cute and fun- three kids who dress up in their superhero suits at night to save the city. There are a couple of patterns for PJ Masks hats out there but no amigurumi. Of course, I had to change that! The patterns will go to my testers as soon as Gekko is finished (he is the last one), but I wanted to show off the two I am done with!
I was perusing Facebook, as I am wont to do. I had shared some pictures in one of my groups, of some PJ Masks dolls I am working on, and one of the ladies in the group asked if I could lend her a hand. She was modifying a superhero doll into a Punisher Doll. Punisher is a favorite here, in fact not too long ago I had modified a pattern to make a Punisher of my own. I was not, however, super happy with his logo. So she asked if I could help her create a logo for her Punisher, I jumped on the chance.
Of course, the nice thing was that her doll offered me a MUCH larger canvas, but even still, I am happy with what came out of my experiments today. So happy in fact that I have decided to offer the logo as a freebie here. Below you can see the logo pinned down, as it has a tendency to curl if its not sewn on.
If you want to make your own Punisher logo, you can use the free pattern here:
