Lil' Monsters Dice Bag Pattern

Right! So here is my first pattern. If you make it, please let me know! I am very curious to see if my instructions are clear enough or not.

Lil' Monsters Dice Bag

This is a very simple & easy pattern to replicate - so if you are a beginner this might be good for you :D. Also, I am pretty sure you can scale up this pattern a few sizes and it will be fine, so don't worry if you don't have the exact right size yarn & hook.


Materials= 2 colours of yarn (body & hair), felt for decorating & yarn needle

Hook = 2.5mm

Final Size = 9cm (aka- holds twelve d10s quite nicely ^_^)

CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
FO = Finish Off


Foundation Chain = CH 26
Round 1 = Turn work, skip one stitch and SC back down - at the end of the row instead of turning your work add an extra crochet into the last ST and ST around (eg - work on the other side of the foundation chain), this makes one round.
Round 2- 25 = SC in each SC around. At the end of the last round cut yarn & leave a long tail to sew back in
Round 26-28 = Switch yarn colour into hair colour & SC in each SC around.
Round 29 = SC 6, CH 6 skip 1 and crochet back down, repeat till end of round. (This will make the bag loops.)
Rounds 30-32= SC in each SC around
Round 33 = SC in each SC around - However! - also pick up the loops & add them into your SC’s by putting your hook first through the SC then the loop and pulling the yarn through.
Round 34-36 = SC in each SC around
FO and weave in all yarn endings

CH 100
Turn work and SC back down the CH.
FO & tie both ends together.

Fun stuff
Now you get to decorate your little monster (or whatever you’ve made up!) have some fun with it, normally the goofier, the better.

If you do use my pattern send me pictures (if you can)! I want to see what you make ^_^.


  1. What a radical idea Liz! I love it! I am going to have to make one for Settlers of Catan. I'll be sure to post a pic after I am done. Great job!

  2. Thank you! I am excited to see what you make out of it. The best part is accessorizing!

  3. Wow that's really cool Liz! I'm printing off your pattern and hopefully I can tackle it soon. I will definitely post pictures. ~♥~ Jennifer

  4. That bag is absolutely adorable! It makes me want to learn to crochet :)

Beholder Pattern

Here is the patterns for Paul, the Albino Beholder. You can of course, make him a normal ruddy beholder colour if you want (it is your amigurumi :D), but I simp[ly thought the world didn’t have enough happy-go-lucky cute things ;). Also, if you find the 10 eye-stalks too much you can also put less on. (I won’t even get into an intense nerd-debate with you about hoe a beholder actually does need all 10 eyestalks in order to be awesomely magical.)




Materials= I colour of yarn, 1 safety eye, 10 black beads (see below), yarn needle, thread for sewing a mouth

Hook = ((2.5mm)) I am not putting a 'strict' hook size here, because you can basically do this pattern with any size hook & any size yarn. The larger the yarn/hook, the larger your beholder will be. However! This is very important make sure to guage your thread around the black beads that you buy for the eye stalks. My pattern calls for a CH6 around the eye beads and you should check this before you start. If y…

DIY Tutorial - Mini Doll Houses

Recently on my G+ page I have been posting a lot of pictures of these tiny 'doll houses' I have made. Since I have been so busy in my life etc. making these tiny creations has really been a big form of stress relief for me. You can get one done in an evening or two and the result is totally adorable and pleasing.

I first found out about miniature doll houses on the blog Open House Miniatures. They talk about the history and origin of these things, so if you are interested in that please give their blog a look. There is also a tutorial on the blog, but I found it rather confusing, because I wanted to make my own houses rather than the print out provided in the tutorial.

So... I have created this tutorial for you on how to make your own folding doll house! My only request is that when you have finished one please let me see a picture, I think they are so cool.
