37 Hours to go

9 Jun

The time is now really ticking down and with the second backer on board we are a step closer to seeing the kickstarter a success.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1507401260/three-legged-rabbit-crochet-and-amigurumi?ref=project_tumblr

I’ve learnt a lot over the last month of taking clearer photos and getting more of a sense of self across with each design. I am not a corporation. I am a single person creating designs from my mind. Taking influence from the things I love and the place I live.

There are so many new designs floating around my head that I want to do that is why I would love to have a single place to list them all. I’ve tried etsy before but find myself losing interest as you have to fight so hard being directly compared to others that everything starts looking the same.

So if you love crochet and all things geek and nature then why not get on board early and be in the know for new designs and choose some great levels of support, each giving you plenty for your support.

You can also have a sneak peak of a few ideas from one page in the growing pile of thoughts. With more from the seven deadly sins dolls, a brave deer knight, a second Horizon Zero Dawn robot and much much more.

Please have a look at the kickstarter and I will see you over there! It would be great to have more on board to share the love of crochet and begin the next year on an exciting footing.

Keep on patterning

15 May

IMG_3154Monday’s can be lacking in motivation but after a productive weekend I set to a small project whilst I plan my next big creation.

From starting this guy I thought I had a plan. But that’s the thing about plans, sometimes you have to adapt to them. A shape doesn’t look how you planned so you either start again or just go with the flow.

and so here we are! With arms long enough to cuddle up warm or long enough to reach the highest shelf, he will never be short of affection or a hug when he needs it most. IMG_3149

If you want to know how he’s made or any other patterns that are on their way then please, check out my Kickstarter. I’m looking to fund a website set up to create a one stop shop for access to my on going projects and free patterns.

The first pledge has been made so why not join them and receive some awesome things as a thank you!

A few more patterns

12 May

A small update for today and its to showcase a few more images of patterns that will be made available for free if I make my Kickstarter goal and get my website up and running.

Like what you see then please help and donate. You get some great goodies with each goal. So please, check out the project and if you don’t like crochet yourself please let anyone you know who does enjoy some geeky crochet goodness know about it to share the love!

Want crochet patterns?

12 May

I’m still working hard on new crochet creations and trying to get better at taking photos so I can do more photo tutorials in the pattern instructions.

But being on maternity leave it’s taking time to build funds for a one stop shop website to keep track of all the patterns and more easily offer them up for free! Yes free!

So I’ve turned to kickstarter with a humble and I hope achievable target. And with that in mind if you love free patterns and all things geek then please head over https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1507401260/three-legged-rabbit-crochet-and-amigurumi?ref=project_tweet to the link and pledge now.

I have so many patterns on my to do list I am excited for all that is to come!

So again if you love crochet and geeky creations the  pledge now. Any amount helps! The first load of free patterns include the stalk and sweet boy from Saga comic, a large complex saw tooth from Horizon Zero dawn and more!

Patreon and Patterns

19 Apr

I have been busy this week creating pattterns for smaller items to give my mind a rest from too much hard work. You’ve seen the Grey Dwarves and I now have an army of small chickens!

All this has lead me to Patreon as a way of hopefully getting into direct contact with people and finding out what they actually want to see made and then creating patterns from there.

It’s an exciting experiment and if you want to see more of what I am creating and be part of the process then please, check me out and pledge. Even the smallest amount helps! You will have my utmost gratitude and happy thoughts for helping and maybe together we can travel a world of crochet creations.

Strange creatures live in the Sea

1 Mar

After completing my Dragon Headed Caterpillar (The pattern for him can be found here- http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dragon-headed-caterpillar) I moved onto the ocean. I am limited in my wool colours for the moment so am finding ones which fit what I have.

I thought I wouldn’t find much for bright pink in the sea but how wrong I was!

Enter the Axolotl – Mexican walking fish. Cute and bright pink I cant find anything not to like about this little guy. And so began the pattern drafting, working out which shapes were needed and working through the pattern and remembering to write it all down before I got ahead of myself. This doesn’t always happen when I am excited to create a new pattern!

He’s another small one measuring about 12cm head to tail. Keep your eyes open for the pattern available soon! I may even work him up a little Mexican sombrero to go with his name 🙂

Dragon Headed Caterpillar

22 Feb

So I love some crazy animals and what nature can throw at us and this next guy was too cute to pass up. I still have not looked up what type of moth/butterfly it turns into but love some Dragon Headed Caterpillar action with their horns and frills!

The pattern for this guy was a little tough to work out as I worked out all the different components, the head, body, legs, tail and side frills. He is small but that means you can make more of them in less time!

He fits perfectly in my two year olds hand and she loves to snuggle him whilst having her bed time milk. The body took a few different attempts as I wanted it to undulate as a way of showing a bit of moment.

All in all about 8 hours were taken to create, write up and photo the final product. Now I am going to make more in different colours to have a small army whilst I think of what other amazing and weird creature to create next.

As always if you would like to purchase the pattern, please email tragictomatoes@hotmail.co.uk or send a payment of your choice to the same email address stating which pattern you would like and which email you would like the PDF sent to.

If you also have a strange creature you would like to see made, drop me a message and I will have a look!img_2141
