From rainbows to Geckos, a few more crochet bookmarks have emerged

I found another bookmark pattern on Pinterest for a gecko which I knew would be perfect for some of my other book gifts, and had a wool in my stash which I have been wanting to use on a project for a while now – always an added bonus when you actually have the right wool already!


I have made 3 of these little cuties so far and will be doing a few more to go with my remaining book gifts…

Such a cute little cloud – how could I not make one of these crochet bookmarks!

IMG_2226IMG_2224IMG_2221I’ve got quite a few book gifts this year and wanted to add just a little something with them that I had made so I decided to make some crochet bookmarks after seeing some very cute patterns on Pinterest.

The first is a very cute rainbow and cloud bookmark which I found the link to on Pinterest:


I love the face details – especially the rosy cheeks! I will be making one of these for myself next!

Time for some puzzling, mini crochet ball puzzling that is!

I have seen patterns for crochet puzzle balls pop up on my Pinterest feed for a while now and have pinned many in my things to make board – which is getting a bit out of hand! I decided the other day it was time I got on and made one of these balls!

I opted to make a mini version to see how I got on first before tackling the larger sized one – didn’t want to end up in a mess of puzzle bits straight off!

The pattern was by #lookatwhatimade

The pattern was brilliant – lots of photos to make sure your on the right track too.

Now that I have successfully mastered on of these little mini ones I will be going ahead and trying one of the bigger ones, however I enjoyed making this little one so much I will be making a few more of these before getting started!

Crochet Lego tissue box cover

I don’t think its possible to ever have too much Lego around – ok apart from when its on the floor and gets stepped on…Luckily with this there will be no sharp edges to harm your feet and it will brighten up your plain tissue boxes.





4.5mm crochet hook

1 ball 100g red DK wool

Darning needle

Tissue box: 12x12x13 cm (12 cm along, 12 cm wide, 13 cm deep). The square boxes you get should be this size. 


Box cover



Row 1: sc into 2nd ch from hook, sc along rest of the row.

Rows 2-11: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc along row.

Row 12: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) 7sc, ch 7, skip 7, 7 sc to end of the row.

Rows 13-22: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc along row.

Round 1: ch 1, sc into same stitch as the ch1, then sc down the side, along the bottom, up the other side and along the top edge then slip stitch into the sc at the start of the round.

Round 2: sc around in the back loops only.

Rounds 3-29: sc around.

Fasten off.


Top circle

  • Side edge



Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc along rest of the row.

Rows 2-4: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc along row.

Fasten off leaving long thread to attach.

Join the two ends together to make a circle and sew to secure. Next sew the circle into the top of the box cover.



  • Circle top

Make 2

Make a magic ring, ch1, 6sc into ring.

Round 1: 2sc into each sc.

Round 2: 2sc into the next sc, sc into next stitch. Repeat around.

Round 3: 2sc into the next sc, sc into the next 2 stitches. Repeat around.

Round 4: 2sc into the next sc, sc into the next 3 stitches. Repeat around.

Round 5: 2sc into the next sc, sc into the next 4 stitches. Repeat around.

Round 6: 2sc into the next sc, sc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat around.

Fasten off leaving long thread.


Fold the circles in half to make 2 semi circles and sew onto the circle you sewed to the top of the box cover. Make sure you only sew around the edges to secure and leave the gap between the two semi circles unsewn for the tissues to come out through.



Time to get quacking with your very own mallard duck crochet hooded blanket 

The hooded blanket makes are continuing with this very happy mallard duck.  

There are now also two sizes in the pattern  for all the hooded blankets.
