So I've been thinking...

I've been really wanting to get into writing (FREE) patterns more often. I have SO many ideas, but where do I start?! I would love to hear some input on new types of products or patterns you may want to see here on my blog. What if I did some sort of giveaway? If I got some sponsors to help sponsor the giveaway and the idea I choose to write a pattern for would win. Lots of things for me to think on.

What do you think? Would you want to be apart of the giveaway or would you want to participate?

Back to work :)

What I'm currently working on, have an idea of what it may be? ;P

They're baaaack

YES SIR!! They are back! Furby's that is. Who remembers those fuzzy little Gremlin lookin' guys?! I know I do. They first came out in the 90's and I remember all my friends had one. I wasn't too big on the at the time but I guess they kind of grew on me. When they made a reappearance about 10 years ago, my grandmother bought my little sister one for Christmas and it was AWESOME! We (being my sister, brother, and I) all learned the Furby language and actually spoke it to each other!! Haha! Great times.

Now, the new ones have DIGITAL eyes! How awesome is that?! Well, being the fact that Furby is going to be a HUGE thing again this holiday season, I have been making crochet Furby inspirted hats, for all sizes! I can make Furby inspired stuffed toys and even little Furby inspired purses. If Furby isn't your thing, I've been making Gizmo inspired hats, stuffed toys and purses as well. They can be furry or not, all depending on your preference. :) I can't wait to show you all the current one I'm working on. It should be done tomorrow so hold onto your seats, this may blow you away.

Goodnight everyone!
