Krawka: Death of rats crochet pattern - discworld, Terry Pratchet inspired reaper death pattern Grim squeaker

What could be a better addition to your reaper costume than a death of rats sitting on your shoulder? Actually you don't even need a costume to carry him around, can you imagine the look on people faces when you walk with him on your shoulder :) I am sure all the rodents from the neighborhood would be gone in a minute.

Crochet reaper is 16 cm (6.3 inches) height.

I've also made the Death of Fleas, I only let it out of sight for a minute and haven't seen it since :)

Winnie the Chew



Krawka: Winnie the Chew crochet pattern - Winnie the Pooh and Chewbacca mashed up in one character!
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you would mash up two best things ever - Star wars and Winnie the Pooh, if you would ask me that question few weeks ago I would say It's impossible, but than I started to wonder... Robin - Han Solo, Winnie the Pooh - Chewbacca and who would be Eeyore... my favorite AT-AT of course. It all led to a 'missing AT-eeyore tail photo session' that you can see above.

Finished bear when standing is 33 cm (13 inches)tall. He can sit or stand because of the doll joints I placed in his legs. Other materials you might want to have before starting on this project: D hook (3,5 mm), 10 mm safety eyes, small gray button -for his bag that is fully functional - you can place your small treasures in there, like honey or ammunition :)
For my fur yarn I used 51 % acrylic, 49 % wool yarn that measures 262 yards (240 meters) for 100 g, Gauge 17.5 to 22 st is 4 inches (10 cm) than I used the dog brush to make it more furry.
for all the additional elements I used 55% cotton yarn which measures 174 yards (159 meters) for 50 g, weight Sport / 5 ply (12 wpi), Gauge 24 to 30 st is 4 inches (10 cm)

For the Winnie the Chew pattern visit my shop:

But for all those AT-AT lovers (AT-eeyore from now on) I have a small free tail pattern that you can download here:

Might the Pooh be with you!

Mushroom

Krawka: Mushroom plant crochet pattern by Krawka

Brand new, cute and easy pattern is now in my shop:


Each mushroom is around 18 cm height.
I've made these two cute mushrooms for my sons and they loved them from the first sight. They are using them as a pillows. I loved this project for so many different reasons: it was very easy with small number of parts (so not too much sewing), the finished toy is relatively big especially for my tiny sons. Also the mushrooms can be made in so many different colors.  I was thinking about brown, blue and green, but finally decided to use yellow. To be honest I am a bit sad I only have two sons and made only two mushrooms, maybe I should make some more kids/mushrooms :) Anyway I would love to see the blue mushroom, so if you are making one in blue please, please send me the photos! :)
