Verspielter Drache

aus Schmelzgranulat & Cernit

Zu den verschiedenen Schmetterlingen kommen noch süsse Drachen hinzu. Die sind ein wenig aufwendiger und ich komme leider nicht so schnell vorwärts.


Mein erster Drache ist dieser süsse verspielte Kerl.



made with Melting Pellets

I have a new major project: "Ornaments" for the many empty plant supports in my mother's garden. I have decided to work with melting pellets and polymer clay.

My first piece of art:




mit ganz viel Glitzer

Nicht ganz so spektakulär wie mein letztes Projekt, aber dafür mit umso mehr Glitzer:


Ein Zacken-Falten-Rock für meine Cousine!


Keltischer Lebensbaum

Mein Meisterwerk

Mein keltischer Lebensbaum ist einem mitternächtlichen Geistesblitz entsprungen. Der Pullover hat viel Zeit und Geduld in Anspruch genommen, und ich bin wahnsinnig stolz auf das Endergebnis. Für mich ist es mein persönliches Meisterwerk!


Makkuro Kurosuke

Knöpfe aus Fimo

Meine Mutter hat ein Jäckchen für meine Cousine gestrickt - und ich habe die passenden Knöpfe dazu entworfen.

Das Endergebnis? Eine sehr glückliche Cousine!


Dinosaurier Jacke

Die Dinos sind los!

Dieses Mal habe ich gefragt, über welches Motiv sich der Nachwuchs freuen würde.

Dinosauriers sind aktuell ganz toll. 


Jetzt läuft irgendwo ein süsses Mädchen ganz stolz mit ihrer Dinosaurier Jacke herum!



As a winter jacket, the theme "dinosaurs" was requested. This includes four cute dino appliqués.


A bit delayed, I am now introducing my Triceratops. Cute, isn't she?



As a winter jacket, the theme "dinosaurs" was requested. I am currently working on that. It includes four cute dinosaur appliqués.


Today, I would like to introduce my version of a Pterodactylus.



As a winter jacket, the theme "dinosaurs" was requested. I am currently working on that. It includes four cute dinosaur appliqués.


Today, I'd like to introduce my T-Rex lady.



As a winter jacket, the theme "dinosaurs" was requested. I am currently working on that. It includes four cute dinosaur appliqués.

First, let me introduce you to my Brachiosaurus.


Bee & Flower

earrings made of Fimo

Wishes and ideas mentioned in passing can quickly come true. At least if you express it to the right person.

Once my cousine mentioned a cute idea for earrings, a few weeks later I was able to surprise her with them.


Totoro Earrings

made of Fimo

in a nutshell:


I wanted to make my cousin happy so I made her Totoro earrings out of Fimo.


Dragons play Chess

or chess-playing dragons?

For Christmas, there was Ghost Chess, and for his birthday, Dragon Chess as a T-shirt - drawn with a lot of love and patience.

I find the two dragons really cute, and my father was very happy too.


Axe of Inox Hatchet

Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion

And once again: my next completed work!

This time, it's the axe of Inox Hatchet from Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion.


Small but mighty, and I think, I did a really good job!


Ice Cream Elephant

fortunately, he has a trunk

A very summery motive, fitting for the current heat: A cute elephant with three ice creams. He seems to be very happy about having a trunk to carry even more ice cream.


Flower Elephant

I will call him Benjamin

My mother has supplied me with new t-shirts to paint on - of course, completely selflessly.

I returned the first t-shirt on her birthday, painted with a cheerful baby elephant and lots of colorful flowers.


Flower Meadow Jacket

with spiders, ladybugs and butterflies

My latest creation is a flower meadow jacket for the next generation. Both the flowers and the inhabitants of the meadow are all appliqués.

So you could say: I sewed just as much as I crocheted and stitched many more threads...


Ladybugs Buttons

made of Fimo

made by me

I am currently crocheting an adorable children's jacket that depicts a flower meadow. Of course, it also needs special buttons!


I have modeled my own buttons out of Fimo: cute ladybugs 🐞


Flower Dress

chrocheted work of art

At the beginning of the year, I "persuaded" my cousin to let me crochet a summery flower dress for her. It consists of a light blue skirt with flower lace and a sleeveless white top. Additionally, it has a deep back and the entire neckline is also bordered with the flower lace.


Red Panda


I crocheted a basket with a red panda face on it for the laundry room. Now it happily hangs on the towel rack, watching us while we work.


Bee Jacket

Buzz buzz buzz,

Little bee buzzing around.

nursery rhyme

I came across the idea on Pinterest to crochet a cute summer jacket with honeycomb patterns and bee appliques.


I think: the jacket turned out absolutely adorable!


Bee Buttons

made of Fimo

made by me

I am currently crocheting a children's jacket in a honeycomb (hexagon) pattern. Of course, it needs equally cute and special buttons to match the jacket.


So, I made sweet daisy buttons out of Fimo and added a little bee on half of them.


Dragon T-Shirt

I bought a plain, light-colored T-shirt to paint on again. As a motive, I chose a cute dragon cuddling with his cat.

I tested a lot of new markers and I am thrilled with them. The colors have held up after washing!


Patchwork Jacket

Something new for the next generation:

a fun patchwork jacket!


I often see patchwork jackets, but I had never tried making one myself - until now. I'm happy with the result and it was definitely fun to make.



from Ascension

My next completed work: The Samael from the Stoneblade game Ascension Tactics.


The first monster figure from the game! Actually, it's the second figure I've painted, but the skulls for the base took a while to arrive...


Polar Night


Apart from a Christmas star that blooms at Easter, we have no Christmas decoration.

With our newly set up crafting corner and my rediscovered joy in Fimo, I started crafting a polar Christmas diorama in December.


Panda Pullover

with link to the pattern

My latest creation:

a cute panda sweater!


I am allowed to crochet as much as I want for my friend's daughter - or until I run out of good ideas. Not happening soon!


Reactor Monk

from Ascension

My next completed work: The Reactor Monk from the Stoneblade game Ascension Tactics.


He is the second mecha figure. I really like what I did with "himself". His strange flame and his weapon are quite good, but could definitely be better.


Ghost Chees


I made a personalized ghost chess set for my father using Fimo. They turned out really cute and my father was overjoyed.


Of course, we had to play a round right away, and as expected, he won!



as chopstick holders

and Christmas gift

My mother loves elephants, and she thought my pandas were so cute. So I made her own version: elephants as chopstick holders!

And of course, I wrapped the whole thing as a Christmas present - if you have a good idea at the right time of the year, make the most of it!


Little Bees & Ladybugs

as magnets

Actually, these cute bees and ladybugs are the reason why I started working with Fimo again. When we planned our crafting corner, a magnetic and blackboard wall was also part of it.

Of course, for that, we needed magnets, and not just any magnets!


Water Djinn

from Ascension

My next completed work: The Water Djinn from the Stoneblade game Ascension Tactics .

I am particularly proud of the waves and the Djinn's body. The eyes have once again turned out zombie-like... practice makes perfect!



as brush holder

Our panda brush holders are such a success that we would like to have something similar for the bathroom, where we clean our brushes. The big difference is that there are a lot more brushes lying around in the bathroom. So we needed something bigger: A Tatzelwurm!



from Ascension

My second attempt at painting miniatures is Kor from the Stoneblade game Ascension Tactics.


I've decided that the monster Kor is riding is a rock creature and tried to paint it accordingly.



as brush holders

When we needed brush holders for our craft corner, it quickly became clear that I would make something for us myself.


In the end, we decided on cute pandas in different poses to hold our brushes.




My first attempt at painting miniatures is two horses and their riders - from the Lord of the Rings tabletop game.


The horses were a lot of fun, the riders were significantly more difficult. I know what horses look like, medieval riders less so...


Flamingo Bath Towel

As a housewarming gift for her new room, I painted a bath towel for my cousin too: Not fruit Pokemons, but flamingos!


This time I used fun flamingos by wooster and Marina Karavaeva as a template.


Pokémon Bath Towel

I recently discovered the fruit Pokémons by @mojgonv and finally found the perfect canvas for them!


Now, four corners of the bath towel are decorated with cute Pokémons: Banana-Evoli, Watermelon-Relaxo, Strawberry-Bisasam, and Grape-Tangela.



combination of snake and boredom

May I introduce?

This is my "Schlangeweile" (a pun in German, meaning "snake-boredom") from the book "Das NEINhorn und die SchLANGEWEILE" by Marc-Uwe Kling.

I did not follow a specific instruction and my own notes are unfortunately too sparse to create a tutorial.


Amy Pond

Doctor Who

May I introduce?


Amy Pond from Doctor Who! I love her story, from the kitchen scene until her final decision to be captured by a weeping angel to follow Rory.


River Song

Doctor Who

May I introduce?


One of my favorite characters of in Doctor Who is River Song. I love her story and how sassy and charming she is - even at the end.

I think my version is quite cute. If you like her too, you can try to follow my pattern.


Weeping Angel

Doctor Who

May I introduce?


This is my cute version of a "weeping angel" from the Doctor Who universe.

I tried to write down my pattern. So if you like it, you can make one yourself.



May I introduce?

I am completely in love with him! He can express himself so well and has already won a place in my heart with his smile.



May I introduce?


This is my attempt at a cute Niffler. I was asked by the next generation if I could crochet one for them. I think he turned out to be a sweet little guy who is already looking forward to his new home.

Devon & Devin are in my cousins favorite colors and have safely arrived in Italy.

"Magische Häkelfreunde"

My cousins surprised me with the crochet book "Magische Häkelfreunde" (magical crochet friends).

The book contains 14 charmingly cute patterns. I will definitely be crocheting at least 11 of them! So, I will be busy with this sweet gift for a while.


Grim Reaper

May I introduce?


This cute Grim Reaper is based on a pattern by Jonas Matthies. He will soon be getting some companions: a few skeletons, Baron Samedi, and perhaps he will also get along with the vampires?

Sweater with Flame Pattern

After making a cozy sweater, I had to make a second one. The yarn is great to work with and incredibly comfortable to wear!

The sweater is finally finished and even more impressive than I had hoped!




May I introduce?


This is Charmander based on a pattern by Jonas Matthies. Currently, he's alone, but soon he'll have other Pokémon to play with.



May I introduce?


This is Cthulhu, following a pattern by Jonas Matthies. Along with Gratch, this cute guy is responsible for me looking at the different patterns by Jonas.

This little teddy bear is called "Bear" - I'm not very original when it comes to names of bears...

The pattern is again from Jonas Matthies.

I named this cute dragon "Gratch." I found the pattern on ravelry and it is designed by Jonas Matthies.

Cozy Sweater

On the first visit to Onza per Onza, I had admired the yarn "Cashseta Linea Pura" by Lana Grossa: it is super soft to the touch!


After a long back and forth - with myself - I finally convinced myself to buy the wool and crochet a cozy sweater for myself.


Sir Octus

May I introduce?


Sir Octus and his brother! The pattern was designed by Sarah Hearn.

If you prefer German, you can switch. I asked and Sarah allowed my to publish a German version.


Fuzzy Baby Clothing

The set of jacket and pants was finished after two weeks - it only took a month to upload to my blog... That's what happens when I finish crocheting in the middle of the week and don't upload the photos immediately.


By the way, the yarn was still really fuzzy after I finished crocheting everything!


Turtle "Jake"

May I introduce?


This cute turtle is named Jake and is one of the "starter kits" from Hoooked - and the instructions are error-free!

When fully assembled, it is about 18cm wide and 22cm long. The shell has a diameter of about 12cm.


Unicorn "Nora"

May I introduce?


These magical unicorns are named Pink, Bubble Gum, Nara, and Nora and were crocheted according to a pattern from Hoooked.

Once they were fully sewn together, they are approximately 14cm tall and 13cm wide.



Outside it is snowing and in our apartment, the black-pink lumberjacket is being finished. The yarn for the jacket was organized through a pick-up service during the lockdown.

Fortunately, we were able to go back to the store and browse all possible buttons.


Winter Socks


What does a woman do when she has freezing cold feet all winter long?


She crochets a pair of socks, then another pair two sizes bigger, fills the space with filling material, and sews it all up. Voila, the super-duper-warm socks are ready!


Stitch Markers

How often have you read in a pattern that you should mark a stitch or row? I think I haven't had a single pattern without at least one mention of these markers.

In this post, I want to show you the types of markers I know and explain what I appreciate about each of them.


Cow "Kirby"

May I introduce?


This cute cow is named Kirby and is one of the "starter kits" from Hoooked - if you need help with the instructions, read on!


When finished, it is approximately 19cm tall, 17cm wide and 14cm deep.


counting rows while crocheting

one, two, three...

Especially with large crochet projects, you often have to repeat the same pattern over several rows, for example, R1-10: 1sc in each st.


What method do you use to keep track of your progress? I know and use three different methods.


Little Heart


A little heart in his arms shall increase the cuteness factor of Elephant Mo - after all, we want him to make a good impression!


I wasn't satisfied with any pattern I found online. After some experimenting, I now have a pattern for cute little hearts.
