Eeyore Crocheted Stuffed Animal November 14, 2013

image

I recently found the pattern for this little cutie and couldn’t help myself. Luckily, I had suspected one of my closest friends of being ‘with child’…and on the night I put the finishing touches on my little friend, I got a delightful call telling me she was, in fact, carrying a little lima bean. I will add the pattern with pictures shortly, please stay posted to get it. This was possibly the most simple pattern I have ever done and one of the easiest stuffed animals I’ve made to piece together properly after. It really only took me a few nights in total to complete this and was not difficult to complete. You can find the original pattern here.

 

I finally have a chance to add the pattern for Eeyore! I hope everyone enjoys making him as much as I did! Good luck, and if you need any help or have any additional questions feel free to ask!

Tail

IN BLUE

Ch20

Skip 6, sl st back through all stitches and fasten off.

Cut black yarn and fasten to end of tail without loop.

Tie pink ribbon around the tail and then you will use the loop to attach to the body.

 

Now you will need to attach all the limbs to the body. This is simple. You can sew them on with the extra yarn you left at the end of each set. Good luck!

I’ll be making another one soon, I’ll be sure to add plenty of photos so that you can easily see how everything should look. Thanks for reading!

Crocheting February 7, 2013

So it took me a really long time to get the hang of crocheting and I FINALLY found a good tutorial that not only explained, in detail, each stitch, the abbreviations, and had great pictures. At the end, she showed you the whole pattern and I was able to read the crazy lingo because she had done such a great job with the step by step. She was so informative and it was laid out so well that it was the first time I had been able to understand anything. I have been making this beautiful blanket, I will post pictures in a few, and I am almost halfway done with it. It is coming out fantastic, although I have had my share of mistakes along the way! I had a problem last night and ended up crying and almost giving up and ripping apart the whole first section of it. Well, thanks to Ravelry.com and the wonderful people on there, I had about 30 people helping me and talking me through it. I finally fixed it and I’m back on track! Seriously, these lovely people saved my life! I have spent so much time and money on this blanket and it’s just so pretty and soft and fantastic that I really didn’t want to give it up…my poor husband last night was trying everything to make me feel better. He wasn’t making sense, but he was trying to help me fix it! What a wonderful man he is!

You can view the original tutorial and pattern here. I will eventually get around to posting my own tutorial, as I did change the pattern a tiny bit, although she did do a wonderful job with it.

My beautiful blanket!
