I am a knitter and crocheter and love to design when I get a chance. I am known as the crazy cat lady with 3 dogs. I am a mother to 3 of my own and step-mother to several. I am also a grandmother.

Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

Another favorite movie and book of mine is Coraline.

Another one of my favorite movies is Coraline. I thought this was a Tim Burton movie but alas it isn't, although the director is connected to Tim Burton. This is why... The director of both Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) was Henry Selick. It is often assumed that since Christmas is sometimes credited as Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas that Burton directed that film. While Tim Burton co-wrote and produced Christmas, he had nothing to do with Coraline.

So I got this email today from Hooked on Crochet...


Hi Crocheters,

This is such a cool doll because it can help your child share her feelings. The doll has a happy face and a sad face.


What got my attention was the Coraline doll. She is designed by Sharon Ojala for Homemade Obsessions.

Coraline Doll
Make an adorable Coraline Doll from the movie Coraline; she looks just like the real thing. This is a great free crochet pattern that also provides videos for each step. Single crochet is used to make your very own Coraline Doll. She's ready to be made and hugged by a new friend!

So I started looking at her site and found some other Coraline inspired dolls.




Here is a picture of all of the characters:








I thought I would let you know that there are 2 other designs of Coraline.

Allison Hoffman of Crafty Is Cool Fame has a really cute and detailed Caroline doll, also crocheted.
Kimberly Kwon, of Kkhymn's Corner Blog, has a knit version called Little Me Doll - Coraline Inspired.
