Fortnight Freebies postponed until September!

Hey everyone!!

Thank you so much for following my posts and having a look at what I have to offer. I am sorry to say that I haven't been able to follow through with my plan of posting one more free pattern before I leave for Japan. Mainly because there has been so much to do that I haven't had a chance to write anything up!

Well, I lie. I have two patterns that have been written up but I don't like releasing things before I have had a chance to proof and then make them all pretty. I would rather hold off on a little longer than release something I'm not proud off so I'm sorry!

My etsy store has now had the vacation sign put up. This is because I leave for Japan in less than 5 days now so there isn't time for me to get to the post office as I have four, ten hour shifts ahead of me at work. :) I'm so happy with the job I have at the moment and I am happy to come home and be able to work more on a hobby that I love.

But I do have a free pattern to share. I didn't write it so I'm going to link you to another page.

Remember the elephant I made that's in my etsy store? With the colour change purple :)  I made this elephant from a free pattern and I would love to share it with you all!



I follow All About Ami on my tumblr and she posted up this beautiful elephant crochet pattern that used a completely different technique that I'm used to. It is made by attaching pieces and crocheting it all together rather than sewing individual pieces and then using a needle to put it together.

I needlefelted the ear parts on and then made the ribbon from my teru teru bozu pattern on its tail.

Please click here to see the elephant pattern!

And with that, the next post I make will probably be a post from Japan. I'll try to write about all the places I go to so people can see if there's anything they would love to do.

When I come back, I have so many projects lined up already.

At the moment I'm creating a series of sailormoon characters.

This is the current work in progress.


I have a pattern series of cute food that I want to make that will  go along with another pattern that I have had in mind for a while now. So many ideas.

I also need to go back to making Pokemon! Otherwise how will I ever fill my dex?

If anybody has any cute small requests (fruit, chibi animals etc) please let me know via a comment here or email and I will add it to my list for Fortnightly Freebies when I return :)
