As promised here is the first round of free patterns that have been made available as part of the Amigurumi Showcase! I will only be sharing the patterns that have caught my eye and that I am planning to make myself (I will update this post with pictures of my makes once I have finished them). These are in no particular order, I’ve also tried to link to the designers’ blogs, Ravelry or Etsy pages if you fancy making any of their other patterns.
1. Kumi the Tiny Doll. She has been designed by a fellow Melbourne designer, Cara, and is just the cutest little lady!
I’m here to report on the #amigurumishowcase that was organised over on Instagram. My pattern, Gigi the Galah (you can see her design process here) was not shortlisted but fear not, I have now sent my pattern to testers and it will be released for free in a few weeks as promised!
I love the crochet designer community, everyone has been so gracious and will be publishing their entry to the contest for free sometime this month, either on Instagram or on their blogs, so you can expect another feature post in the near future with a list of brand new awesome pattern curated by yours truly 😉
In the mean time, let’s come back to the 6 shortlisted designs! Each designer will release their pattern for free on Instagram in the next 3 weeks, and the public vote will happen on the 4th of October. I…
Today is our final week in the LOTR crochet along! I kept the best for last (in my opinion): Legolas! I bet it’s most people favourite elf 🙂 He is pretty kickass in both the LOTR trilogy and in the Hobbit trilogy.
Without further ado, here is the graph for Legolas.
This week on the LOTR Crochet along, we have Aragorn joining us! I don’t know about you, but Aragorn has always been one of my favourite characters. That is, just after a well-known elf who will soon be joining us 😉
It is time for week 6 of our LOTR crochet along! Today we have our first wizard, Saruman the white. He is holding his staff and the Palantir. Next week we will have Gandalf the grey join us. I have to admit I haven’t started Sam yet but I hope to start him over the week. I might not have too much time with my family arriving this week but I’ll try my best to post some pics of the work in progress 🙂

I am French, although I have been living in Australia for over 4 year. Most of the time, people can tell I have an accent but they can’t actually guess where I’m from.
I love food. Savoury, sweet, spicy, even bitter, I love all of it. The only food items I don’t like are the ones that, in my opinion, have no taste (like cucumbers).
Although I actually like the taste of it, I cannot eat barramundi. It’s an Australian/South East Asian fish that is very popular in Australia. The only issue is that I work on them (or more exactly on the bacterial diseases they can get) and I’ve had to kill so many of them that I just really can’t have them on my plate anymore.
I am currently doing a PhD in fish immunology. I need to be pretty focused and strict while doing my experiments and that’s what pushed me to start crocheting/knitting/cross-stitching as a way for me to relax at the end of stressful days. That’s also why I really love writing this blog and meeting all of you.
I play the harp. Not the small celtic harp, the huge concert one, with the pedals and all. I still havent been able to transport my harp to Australia (it’s really expensive) and I really miss it but I get to play every time I visit my parents.
I absolutely adore Nutella! (I know still food related!) I have not only 1, but 2 books dedicated to only Nutella recipes, I make Nutella pizzas, Nutella crepes, and my favourite is the ‘Love me at first bite’ doughnut from ‘Doughnut Time’, you’ve guessed it, it’s FULL OF NUTELLA!!!!! (sorry I’m getting so excited over food 🙂 )
I am an absolute nerd and I love it! I can spend hours upon hours playing Pokemon on my 3DS, we have games night every week, I’ve watched the Lord of the Rings movies in extended version the one after the other a few times, read the Harry Potter books so many times I can’t even count and the list goes on!
