12 Chinese Zodiac Signs, Amigurumi crochet pattern


Crochet pattern for the Chinese zodiac signs: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Piggy.

This is a great gift : you can create a little animal for the year of birth. The years are in the pattern and you can find the zodiac sign for each year here: Chinese Zodiac Signs.

We’re now in the year of the dog  (2018). Next year is the year of the pig.

Coton de Tulear rug


My little Coton de Tulear on the new rug I made yesterday. She likes the texture and warmth to stretch out. The rug is made of T-Shirt yarn. 

How-To: secure and hide the yarn ends

How to secure the yarn and make the start and end invisible. Use this when you embroider eyes, mouth and other decorations on a doll.

Try to choose a less visible point for the entry and exit of the embroidery yarn. I chose behind the ear. Insert the needle in the space between the stitches (do not go through the stitch and leave 2-3 inches yarn for securing when finished), pull the needle out at the front of the head and embroider the mouth or eye as instructed in the pattern.

After finishing pull the needle out at the same point (picture 1) then tie both yarn ends together (picture 2), use the tip of scissors to push both yarn ends inside the doll (picture 3) and you are finished (picture 4).
