OK so I know these are evidently intended for kids, but how awesome/adorable are they!? You can buy the crochet patterns from The Velvet Acorn Etsy store, and I am sure/hope that they will be easily adaptable to my adult head in time for winter.

 OH would you just LOOK at this gorgeous and intuitive use of crochet to create this spectacular dragon?! B would hate it if I made more plushies (as I have a billion) but I think something weighted in the feet and this would make a sweet door stop! Gorgeous and useful! You can buy the pattern (and for numerous other animals) over on Heidi Bears' Ravelry page.

This tutorial on this blog was shared by Deramores on Twitter and I fell in love instantly! Granny squares have been really fascinating me recently and I want to use this to make something gorgeous - but what to make - blanket, cushion cover, throw, shawl, scarf??

I don't know where this image is from (mega-fail, I am sorry!) but the image alone is inspiration enough don't you think? The wonderful use of the colours over a range of designs, all brought together work like magic and I will definitely be trying this one day!


If you like my idea-list(s) why not follow me on Pinterest! This is where most of my inspirations come from now (who's don't eh?) and I would love for you to inspire me as well!
