There were some more boys in the family having birthdays and they happen to all be Star Wars fans! I wanted to crochet a Star Wars character and I decided to come up with the pattern myself to be able to share with you in case you wanted to make this as well. Meet Yoda. He's little, but he can still do great things! My daughter told me she wants one in purple after meeting him ;) lol. Little Yoda Crochet Tutorial
Kirby Amigurumi Pattern My Kirby pattern has been a long time coming, mainly because I got too ambitious with Super Smash Brothers versions to finish and post it. Initially, in honour of the recent release of Kirby’s epic yarn, the project was going to include patterns for 10 or so Kirby hats, so that he could be more epic and morph into his various SSB versions and be Link Kirby, Mario Kirby, Wario Kirby, you get the idea. As with most things I do though, I got distracted and started working on other stuff and finished up the Mario and Peach hats only, so these will have to do for now. I might make more later, but if my fabulous readers make a Kirby and decide to make him a SSMB hat, email me photos and the pattern if you are kind enough to share and I will post it with credit. As with all my patterns, Kirby is free.

3 - Machine sewing Start sewing from one side of the opening, and follow the line all around the body. For straight corners, sew all the way to the corner, make sure the needle is down (so the fabric stays in place) then raise the foot of the sewing machine, pivot the fabric around, lower the foot and start sewing again. Do some backstitches at the beginning and the end of the line, to secure the thread. I usually leave the opening between the bottom legs, so it’s less noticeable if I mess it up. In this case, I felt very confident and left it open betweent the ears (and the legs were to close to each other, too).
I was inspired by this picture (Etsy), that I saw in a magazine, and I thought that I probably needed to make something like that. I actually saw this idea done as a coaster in Martha Stewart Living a year or two ago and I loved it! Anyway, I made this felt pillow out of it! (Sorry about the blurry photo, night time!)

Little Lamb Pillows Several years ago I drove through Europe in the Springtime and I will never forget seeing all the adorable lambs frolicking in the fields. They were unbelievably, utterly cute. I wanted to get out of the car and pet each one we came across. Recently when I was thinking of a project to add some springtime cheer to my apartment I kept thinking of the little lambs and decided to try my hand at making a lamb inspired throw pillow.
