Nederlandse Versie Walvis Haakpatroon

Hallo allemaal !

Dit keer een blogje in het Nederlands ! :-)

Terwijl heel hakend Nederland in de ban was van de Kreadoe, heb ik me gestort op het vertalen van 1 van mijn haakpatronen.
Deze keer was de walvis amigurumi aan de beurt. 

Het Nederlandstalige patroon is af en toegevoegd aan mijn shops bij

ETSY        en        RAVELRY

Ik hoop hier alle hakende walvis fans een plezier mee te doen !
Kijk voor meer foto's en info over het patroon bij bovenstaande links.

En nu weer op naar een nieuw patroon !

Bedankt voor het lezen, heel veel liefs van Marjan. XXX

Everyone Loves A Baby Elephant !

Everyone loves a baby elephant, right ?!
I know there are lots of elephant crochet patterns out there already but I just couldn't resist to design one for my shop. :-) 

Finished size will be approx. 8” (20 cm) tall in sitting position, crocheted using acrylic yarn (heavy DK - 8 ply), with hook size E (3.5 mm).
Gauge is not important for any of Millionbells amigurumi crochet patterns, just crochet tight enough so your stuffing won't show through the stitches.

The trunk and head are crocheted as 1 piece and the toes are incorporated while working the legs so there won't be much sewing to be done, which is always a bonus !
If you add (chenille) wire into the trunk it will be posable and this will add a lot of cuteness to your baby elephant, don't you agree ?
More pictures and info about the pattern can be found here :

Thanks for reading !
Wishing you al a nice weekend !

Time flies !

Hi all !

Wow, it's been such a long time since my last post here !
Sorry to have kept you waiting, life has been extremely hectic this year. 

Things are slowing down now and I hope I'll have more time to crochet and design new patterns for my pattern shop. :-)

Let me show you my latest new design. 

Oh yes, a lovely little whale !

The one in the picture is made using soft baby acrylic yarn from our local household store (which basically means a brand - less yarn, hehe, but it would be stated as sport weight yarn) and crochet hook size C (2.5 mm).
The finished length turned out approx. 10,6" (27 cm).
Off course you can make smaller or taller whales using another thickness of yarn and size crochet hook.

You can find more pictures and info about the pattern in my shops at

You can even find this pattern on Amigurumipatterns ! 

Thanks everyone for reading and taking a look !
Have a great remaining summer ! Will be back soon..... :-)

Easter coming up !

Hi everyone !

Wow, Easter is so early this year ! 
Just 3.5 weeks from now we'll be having the Easter weekend to celebrate. :-)
I'm looking forward to it, are you too ?
It means better weather is on it's way, and from then we'll slowly prepare the outside spaces for the upcoming summer. :-)
And off course celebrating Easter in our decorated homes !

As we speak of Easter decor, how about a nice sheepish teacosy for your breakfast table ?

This will be perfect ! :-)

Off course the crochet pattern for this teacosy can be found in my shops at

Remember I made these Easter / Spring patterns earlier, shown below ?

Patterns for these and lots of others can also be found in my shops !

Thanks for reading !

Wishing you al a nice day !

Hi again !

Hi again !
 Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy New Year !
May we all have lots of time to do crafty things, hehe. ;-)
I know I know, I'm late.....
I have been cought up in my work at the flower shop during the busy Christmas season.
Think it probably was the bussiest Christmas ever !
But here I am again and I a have a new crochet pattern to show you all. :-)
It took quite some time to create this one because I was lacking time to work on it.
So it was going really slow, but I think it was worth the wait; I believe this cute little Mini Cooper inspired car turned out just right !

If you'd like to see more pictures or want to know more about the pattern,
you can find all info here :
Well, I hope you like my new design. :-)
Now quickly off again to continue working on a new design !
I hope I can show you more soon.
 Thanks for reading my blog !

Autumn is really here

Hi everyone !

It's been a little while since I posted here on my blog.
I had a lovely summer vacation and after that life was right back to busy busy busy !

I was fortunate enough though to work on some new crochet patterns.

These 2 Halloween themed items for example.

A pumpkin teacosy crochet pattern, including the big fat spider !

And for Halloween a black cat is some kind of a must - have, don't you think ?

If you wish to see more pictures and read more info about the patterns, visit my shop at
