Doll's day: lots of news

This week I wanted to show you 3 creations.

Mini Mr Owl, that’s  how I call him, made from leftover garn. The (Dutch) pattern can be found here:

I bought the eyes at Zeeman’s. I tought they were self-adhesive eyes, but no! I sticked them with adhesive for textile and didn’t expext it would stick so good. It worked thanks to some patience!!

Furthermore I made a hippo, Nilli, a pattern from Bettys-Simm-Salabim. (

Somewhere on Facebook I saw someone crocheted the white part of the eye and sewed a black button on it and finished! Of course I wanted to try that because I have loads of buttons. I like the result, do you?


And then I continued crocheting on Squirly, the FAL from CrochEssie by Esther Emaar a while ago.

We only see half of the photo because she is not finished and Squirly is shy. Same here: I discovered a mistake. The eyes which I ordered at couldn’t be sewed on. I crocheted too tight. A learning experience and I sticked an eye from Zeeman. She doesn’t look bad, but how awesome would it be if she wore the eyes as described in the pattern… Next time I’ll make a fantirumi!


It has been a while since the FAL has ended. CrochEssie was very busy in the meantime. Last week she published her latest pattern: Turtoisy. Isn’t she lovely…(Picture: CrochEssie by Esther Emaar)

Turtoisy is a free pattern to be made on an egg. The pattern can be found here: You can make here for the children in Villa Pardoes (I wrote about it earlier in my doll’s day blogs) or for yourself. And there are also very nice packages for sale at to make Turtoisy.

Is there some more news? Oh yeah, of course there is, loads of news!
