Craftseller christmas trio

Working on Christmas things when its still summer outside can be hard. When I was making this Christmas amigurumi trio for craftseller magazine it was one of the nicest weekends we've had all summer, and I was inside sketching elf's and Santa's.

Making a pattern set for a magazine can be tricky as there is only so much page space your pattern can take up. To make 3 very different figures all with a lot of detail fit in the page space. I have had to make a basic body pattern that can be adjusted slightly for all 3. Only problem with this was that my Santa has been on a diet.

Sorry for the bad photo. These are the trio before I sent them in to the magazine and here they are in the mag...

This little elf is one of may favourite patterns to date. I think he's so cute. His messy hair and pointy ears just make me smile every time I see him.

Next months craftseller has a very different project from me but it'll still add a bit of sparkle to your Christmas.

In other news my day of the dead bracelet is available as a free pattern on Inside crochet new website
you can find the pattern here

I'm also working on a set of easy Halloween patterns. They should be in my etsy shop in the next few days :)

I have missed a few weeks so I'm going to have a good catch up over at handmade monday
