I recently posted about my Lalylala Kira Kangaroo that I was planning to make for my little nephew. He is expecting a new baby sister in September and when I saw this beautiful design I immediately thought of making the kanga into a big brother and the little Roo into a baby sis. Here he is! I … More Lalylala
I’ve made a dolly! I bought this book: I was a bit worried when I read the reviews that I wouldn’t be able to make ‘My Crochet Doll’ as a lot of people were complaining about the lack of instructions…I have to say I struggled a bit with the head and hair. I read … More Supergirl: my crochet doll

The hardest for me has been Elizabeth’s because she wanted an As We Go blanket which was a crochet along from 2014 that she spotted in my Inside Crochet magazine.
