Pattern Testing

I love the help, advise and input I receive from all of my pattern testers! Before I started writing my own patterns I tested for other designers. I still enjoy doing so! Helping other designers perfect their patterns before release is something I really enjoy and take great pride in. Here are just some of the patterns I have had the privilege of testing…

This beautiful Owl Shawl was the first test I ever did for Spider Mambo!

Find more of her work on Facebook and Ravelry.


This adorable (and not at all scary) clown was made from Odessa Tilly’s pattern.

Find her on Ravelry and her blog.

Lilliputti test

This gorgeous bonnet was tested for Lilliputi. Isn’t it adorable? Pattern hasn’t been released as yet but I’ll add the link here when it’s ready to go.

Meet Captain Jacknabbit, Pirate of the High Seas! Such a cute plushie pattern from Amigurmi by Ms Pots!

These are just a handful that I’ve had the privilege of testing.

I’ll be sure to share some more another time! In the meantime, enjoy! ♥


Twitch Cheese Mouse Lovey

Don’t you just love those middle of the night sudden hits of inspiration? Well that’s exactly how this lovey came about! Almost asleep and then BAM! Idea!

So far no two of my loveys have been the same and I love that they’re all unique and keeping with a ‘theme’.

This one follows on after my pattern for Twitch.

The pattern for Twitch Cheese Mouse Lovey can be found here.

Who wouldn’t want to snuggle with this little guy? ♥

Lovey Love

It seems a lot of wee little ones are enjoying the comfort of a crochet lovey! Well, after creating my first Bumble bee Lovey, I knew they’d keep coming! My lovey designs are a little different to the norm. They’re all unique in their design so I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Check them out on Ravelry:

Bumble bee Lovey blossomed to life after my Twist and Twirl Bumble bees.


Going Bananas Monkey Lovey came about after Mitch the Monkey finished his banana!


(Happy as a) Pig in Mud Lovey popped into my head after Percival the dapper pig was born.
