Some of my hobbies include:

  • Crochet (hats, scarves, blankets, toys {the lamb and fox pictured can be altered into a cat or dog}, and shawls. Many color options here.)

  • Book Binding (outer cover is paper bound. This includes my own novels and photo albums. Soon I'll be moving onto binding with fabric and leather)

  • Cards and envelopes

  • Miscellaneous Crafts (pictured is my umbrella apple tree canopy and Alice in Punkland's flamingo mallet)


Here are a few hats and scarf designs plus anything else I can create with a crochet hook and yarn.


Some photos of paper bookbinding and cards....


Here are a few crafty things like paintings made with paper, my tree umbrella, and the flamingo mallet.


Stuffed Animal Unicorn

Well, technically if you altered it a bit, you can make anything, but I’ve included a copy of the pattern for this specific little guy. Just note that the difference in size from the original to the newer one is only because of the size hook. Everything else is pretty much the same.

***WARNING: This is a homemade pattern and is a result of trial and error. I believe this is the best rendition yet but by all means not perfect. Also, I don’t normally write down patterns, so my apologies for any confusion. I’m happy to answer questions.***
