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.

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.

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
