Camille the Camel

In an effort the keep things interesting, I ventured really far to see if I could create a camel. I wanted the knobby knees, a defined mouth and wanted her to stand on her own. Well she definitely has character and a sweet demeanor and I’m very pleased with my latest addition to the “abstract jungle” of critters. To purchase her pattern click buy now and it will transfer you to my ravelry site for Camille. She’s walked over many miles of desert to be a part of your menagerie.

Plump Purple Pachyderm

This guy didn’t take as long to make as I thought but halfway through, I was really worried that he was even going to look like an elephant!!! He’s approx. 11″ long and 6 1/2″ tall and using Red Heart Homespun yarn in “Purple Haze” totally makes him!!! He’s still a baby so he doesn’t have tusks but if you’re wanting to purchase the pattern, visit my ravelry site and you can buy now. I welcome all comments and ideas on new “critters” to make. My DH has now deemed this as his favorite “critter” to date!!!

Loving Ladybug

Loving ladybug was created for a coworker who needed something for an infant. So therefore, she has no removable parts, etc. And because it was so close to Valentine’s day I had to put a heart on her wings and for her lips. The pattern can be purchased on my ravelry site at buy now. She’ll just flutter into your loved ones heart!

Lavender “Bubbles the Fish”

The twin fishies are finally done!!! I changed the eyes on the lavender one and like them a lot more than the pink one but since their for newborn babes due in April, I don’t think they’ll really care. The pattern was by Delicious Crochet and she has fabulous patterns. My DH does an awesome job with his new camera taking the “vogue” shots for their debut.

Bruce the Walrus

So I was totally unmotivated to complete the fish and alpaca that I have in progress, so I started “Tuskegee the Walrus” from Stacey Trock’s Crocheted Softies book and it was very fast and fun to do. I used a wavy, very bulky yarn (identical to the monkey) just a different color and this was in light aqua and had a touch of lavender to it as well. Thus the reason that he’s quite big, about 12″ long. But I still like him. So my friend across the pond said that he should be named Bruce, therefore, he shall! =)
Stacey Trock was kind enough to include my walrus on her ravelry site!!!!

My Favorite Critter – Baby Brown Monkey

Back in December I needed to make two monkeys for a co-worker for Christmas presents…didn’t have a pattern, was too frugle to buy one, etc. So I just started crocheting and this is what I came up with….I’ll post the Baby Brown Monkey pattern in late January. The banana is from a KTB Designs book on etsy.com and it totally makes the whole thing!!! I even gave him a belly button! The signature “TBC unraveled” look for him is on top of his little head. He’ll grown into his ears someday I’m sure. His main purpose right now is the LOVE for his banana that is ALL his. =)
