Etsy shop closed

Dear crocheters!

For several reasons, I decided to close my Etsy shop.

At the moment my patterns are available in GERMAN language only (in my DaWanda shop).

Giacomo Gecko

There's offspring in the "Cute'n'Cuddly" family again! :)

Giacomo Gecko loves flies more than anything else on this world - but definitely not for dinner! No! He's just absolutely fascinated by those little critters... hence he can never have too many of them around him! - And the little flies (and bees and lots of other flying, humming and buzzing creatures *g*) love Giacomo so much!

Giacomo likes to hold his tiny friends gently in his little knobbly fingers... ;)

The crochet pattern includes instructions for Giacomo and all pictured fly friends as well. It is available in my Etsy shop. (You can find a detailed description of the pattern there.)

A hot tip from me to you: If you leave out the tail (and maybe the nostrils, too), Giacomo can also be a cute little FROG! :)

Another color variation:

Mini Guardian Bear

A while ago, I made this little critter as a gift for the best brother in the world - a mini version of the "Guardian Bear". (It's a special one-of-a-kind thing, I did not make a pattern for it.)

Mister Miller, the Problem Solver!

Do you know those days when you should have more than only 2 hands? When you don't know where to start and what to do next? - Don't worry, there's help in sight! Sit down, take a deep breath, and relax - Mister Miller, the Problem Solver will take care of everything for you! :)

Mister Miller is a bundle of energy! Because he has 4 instead of only 2 hands, he can do several things at once! Put him into the chaos - and he will manage everything! (Well, maybe he has his own concept about what order means... *g*)

Here you can see Mr Miller in action - no jungle is too confusing, no way too long...

His slogan is: Don't hang your head!...

In a quiet and speedy way he does his job...

Translation: "A Genius is working here - and nobody takes notice."

...and beyond that, he still has time for the important things in life...

A flower - for you! ♥

Especially good he is at this:

... and that:

... a little nap after work ... ;)

Mister Miller ist waiting wishfully to be crocheted by you and to solve some problems for you! - He also is good at playing, comforting, relaxing and cuddling! :)

The pattern for the little one is now available in my Etsy shop.

P.S.: If you want to thank him for his great help, I have a hot tip for you: Mr Miller loves the banana, that is available as a free pattern here: Amigurumi Banana. ;)

Free pattern: Decorative Bow

As announced, I gave my little Guardian Bear a pretty bow. I thought, it should be a crocheted one - and here it is!

Now the Guardian Bear finally is "dressed for spreading love" and will give his heart to my mum on Mother's Day.... ♥

I made a pattern for this bow - you can download it here:

I love you - Guardian Bear

This little Guardian Bear has a big heart that he wants to give to someone special. And he will protect this one with love - forever and everywhere!

The little bear also likes to be given away as a friendship, love or lucky bear - every occasion that has a lot of heart in it is just the right time for him! ♥ ♥ ♥

The pattern for this little bear and his heart is available in my Etsy shop.

P.S.: My little bear will get a big bow around his neck and give his heart to my mum on Mother's Day... ♥

Susi, the Kitty

Paul, the Puppy got new friends: Susi, the Kitty and her friend Mousy!

I think you can image what's going on here now: the three little critters are dashing through the house... there's barking, hissing and feeping everywhere. A little furball with three tails is rolling around, and there's a lot of laughing to hear! :)

When the three finally get tirend (what happens very rarely), then they very much enjoy cuddling together and to be petted by little children's hands...

The pattern for Susi and Mousy are now available in my Etsy shop!

Paul, the Puppy is here!

A new member of the "Cute'n'Cuddly" family has arrived: Paul, the Puppy! :)

A trustful look and a playful heart - Paul has everything that a "best friend" needs. He has a big and loyal heart, he follows his mistress/lordling everywhere, and is always at her/his side. Paul is the perfect pal - he loves to play with his ball and have a lot of fun, but he is also good in comforting, cuddling and drying tears... All he wants back is a little bit of love... who could resist this cute little face? :)

The pattern for Paul, the Puppy and his ball is now available at my Etsy shop!

Wise little owls

These two little cuties just hopped from my hook - and are waiting to come to your home! ... And because owls are known for being very wise they bring their own graduation hat.

As you can see: Baby Owl is already dreaming of being once as wise as Mama Owl... :)

The pattern for "Mama and Baby Owl" (incl. flowers, heart, and graduation hat) are available in my Etsy shop.

Pattern was tested by Ann (chessie) - you can see her little owls here.
