I searched for quite a while for a crochet pattern of peppa pig, but could only really find a knitting pattern. Since my knitting skills are not quite as good (or as quick) as my crochet skills, and I did not have the time to try and convert the knitting pattern to crochet….. I decided to make it on my own 🙂
And here she is! I am really pleased with how it turned out. Think I will have to make her brother George too!
My little nephew absolutely adores watching Peppa…. ‘more peppa’ he keeps saying 🙂 So this is for him. I hope he likes it as much as I do!
When searching online for crochet patterns, I get a little miffed when I see lots of toys for kids which are absolutely amazing and ones that I know my nephew and PR’s nephews would love, yet they are knitting ones only. Must try and convert them to crochet I think. Fireman Sam and Postman Pat are the top two next to try and crochet. Wish me luck 🙂

This is Dudley. Dudley is a sailor; he also cooks in the Royal Navy. He is extra special because he can work faster than anyone else due to his eight hands!
His speciality is curry and all the other sailors love him because he tells them really funny jokes – ‘Oh Dudley, you are so funny’ they often shout!
…..a little present for my nephew 🙂

Sorry I have not posted for a while…. two weeks I think! What have I be doing you might be thinking?
Well, we went away for a week to Cornwall over Easter – stayed in a lovely cottage with my brother and his family, did lots of lovely walks along the coastline, ate fish n chips, ice-creams and watched all the little ones crab fish around Padstow Harbour. Wonderful!
And I even managed to do a bit of crochet whilst on holiday! Yay! I have also gained two crochet students – my Sister-in-law and nephew – I’ve got them both ‘hooked’ 🙂
Prior to our Easter holiday, I managed to make the chicks you can see above. A mummy and a baby chick 🙂 Loved making the mummy chicken – might have to make a daddy one too!
I managed to make a few more granny squares on holiday for my Morocco inspired blanket, however I don’t feel like I am making as much progress as I wanted. Partly because I am really cracking down on our wedding plans now (ordered my dress on Saturday :)) and also because I keep adding projects to my to-do list!! I am so bad – can’t help looking at other projects (and not just crochet at that!), especially small projects as I like it when I see the finished result so quickly ( which is a bit of a life-saver what with my large crochet blanket project on the go).
Speaking of to-do lists, I have a few more crochet amigurumi’s added on to it, a cross stitched card, a crochet present for a new baby, and a cross stitched cushion – these are the most important projects at the moment but there are many more on the list! Think my blanket will be pushed to the back for the time being. Boo Hoo!
My granny squares so far:
The tower of squares at the back of the photo are the ones I did a while ago which I posted about, and the others are the ones I completed on holiday – not sure if you can see from the photo, but the front six are a slightly different design. The design is called ‘Criss Cross’ and is made fairly similarly to the original granny – entirely treble stitches. More tails to weave in now…….
Nearly finished another amigurumi, so will be back soon! 🙂
