Swiper no swiping

Krawka: Swiper fox crochet pattern by Krawka from Dora the explorer kids tv show

Krawka: Swiper fox crochet pattern by Krawka from Dora the explorer kids tv show

Finished swiper the fox is 45 cm (17.7 inches) long with the tail - 33 cm (13 inches) without it. He is one of the main characters in my children favorite tv series 'Dora the explorer'. When you see him in the movie, you have to say: 'Swiper, no swiping'! three times - and let me tell you if I would get a penny each time I heard that since I have made him I would be so loaded :)....my children are shouting that phrase over and over and over....
.... so 'Swiper, no swiping  Swiper, no swiping  Swiper, no swiping'.

To be completely honest it is a very fun, colorful  project to make and it gave me a lot of joy I hope you will love it too:

Krawka: Nightmare the creepy cute Halloween snake crochet pattern by Krawka -Beetlejuice sandworm inspired,

Nightmare is a huge crochet snake. He is almost 120 cm (47 inches) long, but you can very easily make it shorter or loooonger.


Although it wasn't my intention he is now my older sons best friend :) I thought he will be a little too creepy for a little (4 yo) boy, but my son loves him and isn't even a bit afraid. My boy loves all monsters, dragons and ghosts but is terribly afraid of squirrels :) (You probably know that already) - Yes I am serious :)

Krawka: Cute crochet bunny pattern by Krawka, free pattern rabbits bunnies


Lately I have a teeny tiny obsession - bunnies. I can see them everywhere I would buy every each one of them - bunny lamps, bunny plushies, bunny beds, bunny clothes, bunny hats... - I think it may have something to do with the fact that I am pregnant and It will be a girl (I already have two boys) but I am not sure :) I just felt I have to make those crochet bunnies, and from now on whenever I will feel like I need to buy some bunny crap I will just take another yarn color and make another one of those :) I will keep you posted how much I've already made... :)
If you want to make one too visit this link:

Each bunny is around 20 cm (7.8 inches)

Birthday cake... and hat... and bowtie

Krawka: Birthday cake - crochet food photo prop pattern by Krawka


I have made this birthday cake for my son's 1-st birthday. With my best friend (photographer), we wanted to make him a wonderful 1-st birthday photo session and what would be a greater photo prop for this session than the yummy cake, which he can chew on without getting dirty or burned with a candle :) later on we decided to make an extra accessory - birthday hat in the same color scheme.

Starry night - new crochet frame pattern

Krawka: Starry night inspired crochet picture frame pattern by VanKrawka


Starry Night is one of my favorite paintings. I love it's vibrant colors and movement and a small hint of craziness :) - Did you know Van Gogh painted it while in a mental hospital - there is also some unexpected math behind it I didn't even know about until last week, more info here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMerSm2ToFY.

I made this picture for myself to have this small piece of great art in my home. I am very happy with the result and I think you can feel a bit of VanKrawka in it :)

Finished crochet pegasus is almost 30 cm (11.8 inches) long with tail. He is inspired by the baby pegasus from Disney's Hercules. Zeus described him as a magnificent horse with the brain of a bird :D Actually our crochet horsie will not have any brain at all - only stuffing, in his little head, but who cares when he is looking so cute and cuddly :)

Princess castle

Krawka: Disney Proncess Castle crochet pattern by Krawka

Krawka: Disney Proncess Castle crochet pattern by Krawka

The idea, to create a princess castle, came to my head more than a year ago, but I was a bit afraid how it will go - I have never made any kind of a building before. Finally the idea grew so much in my head that I couldn't ignore it anymore and finally decided I am making it no matter what the result will be. A few days and yarns later castle was ready and I think it looked even better than I imagined. It came out bigger than I expected (Castle is more than 30 cm height - 11.8 inches) and I put so much work in making elements and then sewing them all together but at the end it really looks AMAZING, but more important than that, it is such a great, versatile toy - for girls( princesses) and boys (knights and dragons) and lately LEGO batman moved in to my castle - (I have two little sons :) .
 

If you would like to make the little princess first you can download the free pattern here:

Brand new, cute and easy pattern is now in my shop:


Finished anteater is 23 cm (9 inches) long.
His long tongue can be outside - ready to eat, or hidden. You need to check when your toy will be ready, but my anteater's tongue unrolls automatically when there are ants nearby :) Ok, maybe not really, but I said so to my son. Now he is checking every morning if the ants are near or not :)

Death of Rats

Krawka: Death of rats crochet pattern - discworld, Terry Pratchet inspired reaper death pattern Grim squeaker

Krawka: Death of rats crochet pattern - discworld, Terry Pratchet inspired reaper death pattern Grim squeaker

What could be a better addition to your reaper costume than a death of rats sitting on your shoulder? Actually you don't even need a costume to carry him around, can you imagine the look on people faces when you walk with him on your shoulder :) I am sure all the rodents from the neighborhood would be gone in a minute.

Crochet reaper is 16 cm (6.3 inches) height.

I've also made the Death of Fleas, I only let it out of sight for a minute and haven't seen it since :)

Winnie the Chew



Krawka: Winnie the Chew crochet pattern - Winnie the Pooh and Chewbacca mashed up in one character!
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you would mash up two best things ever - Star wars and Winnie the Pooh, if you would ask me that question few weeks ago I would say It's impossible, but than I started to wonder... Robin - Han Solo, Winnie the Pooh - Chewbacca and who would be Eeyore... my favorite AT-AT of course. It all led to a 'missing AT-eeyore tail photo session' that you can see above.

Krawka: Winnie the Chew crochet pattern - Winnie the Pooh and Chewbacca mashed up in one character!
Finished bear when standing is 33 cm (13 inches)tall. He can sit or stand because of the doll joints I placed in his legs. Other materials you might want to have before starting on this project: D hook (3,5 mm), 10 mm safety eyes, small gray button -for his bag that is fully functional - you can place your small treasures in there, like honey or ammunition :)
For my fur yarn I used 51 % acrylic, 49 % wool yarn that measures 262 yards (240 meters) for 100 g, Gauge 17.5 to 22 st is 4 inches (10 cm) than I used the dog brush to make it more furry.
for all the additional elements I used 55% cotton yarn which measures 174 yards (159 meters) for 50 g, weight Sport / 5 ply (12 wpi), Gauge 24 to 30 st is 4 inches (10 cm)

For the Winnie the Chew pattern visit my shop:

But for all those AT-AT lovers (AT-eeyore from now on) I have a small free tail pattern that you can download here:

Might the Pooh be with you!

Mushroom

Krawka: Mushroom plant crochet pattern by Krawka

Brand new, cute and easy pattern is now in my shop:


Each mushroom is around 18 cm height.
I've made these two cute mushrooms for my sons and they loved them from the first sight. They are using them as a pillows. I loved this project for so many different reasons: it was very easy with small number of parts (so not too much sewing), the finished toy is relatively big especially for my tiny sons. Also the mushrooms can be made in so many different colors.  I was thinking about brown, blue and green, but finally decided to use yellow. To be honest I am a bit sad I only have two sons and made only two mushrooms, maybe I should make some more kids/mushrooms :) Anyway I would love to see the blue mushroom, so if you are making one in blue please, please send me the photos! :)
