2016 Donations from Bill the Pineapple

2016 Bill the Pineapple amigurumi donation

Thank you to everyone who purchased a Bill the Pineapple pattern this year – I was able to donate over $1330 to the charity Support Education Togo. That is amazing! So many children in Togo, Africa will benefit from your support.

Want to learn more about the charity? Visit SupportEducationTogo.org and learn how your money is going towards building schools so more children have the opportunity to be educated in a safe environment. My father started the charity himself, so I know it is one that can be trusted and ALL the money donated goes to help the students in Togo.

Happy new year!

Until next time,

Meet Tod and Dot – a pair of bears!

new pattern! titleI would like to introduce to you my latest pattern release: Tod and Dot the bears! Named by my husband, Tod is the tall one and Dot is the round one.

Tod and Dot the bears amigurumi pattern

I started off making Tod (who was then nameless), but then I felt he needed a little tubby friend. My hubby then came up with the names Tod and Dot and I knew right away that it was the perfect fit.

I will admit, these two have been sitting on my desk for some time now because life has made their release a little more delayed than usual, but they have been keeping us company, watching our every move. Every once in a while my husband or I will randomly say “Hello Tod and Dot!” when we notice them staring. They make us smile!

Learn all about the pattern on the Tod and Dot pattern page. Can’t wait to see all the bears pop up!

Inside Crochet’s “Amigurumi Collection” magazine

Press and Publications of hookabee crochetThe makers of Inside Crochet magazine recently released a special “bookazine” edition : The Amigurumi Collection. They sent me a copy of the issue and I was happy to see photos of several of my hookabee patterns, as well as some select quotes by me from when they interviewed me earlier in the year. Have a look!

I recommend checking the magazine out and maybe even picking up a copy for yourself. This special issue includes 33 amigurumi patterns (wow!), a couple designer interviews, and several tutorials. It is packed full.

The pattern designs span a huge range, including multiple animals, dolls, and food, all from different designers. They are divided up into several different categories: Cute and Cuddly, Fairyland and Woodland magic, Seasonal Fun, and Toys with a Twist. I think my favourite pattern is the Rapunzel doll with her tower by Lynn Rowe. That tower is so neat!
