Hello all! Time has flown by this week and it’s time for another weekly Wednesday update. It’s been a really busy and important week here at Crochet Creature HQ and I’ve got some BIG news to share with you all, so read on to get the low down!
Introducing - Poppy in her Pig Costume
Meet Poppy! This is my very first crochet pattern that I made from scratch and have written up as a real and actual pattern for others to follow. If you saw my first Weekly Wednesday Update blog post or you follow @crochet_creature (me) on Instagram then you’ve probably seen some sneaky previews of her, but now she’s finished and I’m so happy. What do you think of her?
Right now her pattern is in the hands of three wonderful pattern testers who are double checking my maths and sewing instructions to make sure she’s perfect when I release her for sale. Speaking of which, keep your eyes peeled as I’m intending to have her pattern listed for sale next week on my shop right here at crochetcreature.com. This is such a dream come true for me and I hope you love her as much as I do!
News on the Newsletter
So last weekly update I told you that I’d been planning on implementing a newsletter for the blog. Well I did some more research yesterday and got a little something in place! For now it’s very basic and I’m working hard on improvements (by working hard I mean, occasionally looking at a tutorial over my crochet pattern)! It will be a priority for me over the next few days, don’t worry, and I’ll get a really fabulous newsletter and subscription set up for you all. I plan on sending one email out a month at the moment so it won’t clog up your inbox at all. In it, I’ll include news, tips, sneaky behind the scenes previews and best of all, FREE patterns! You’ll get a hold of all my free patterns before they release on the blog as a thank you for signing up. I’d really love for you all to sign up, it would mean a lot. Please head over to the (temporary) newsletter sign up page in the menu and pop in your lovely email address if you’re interested. Cheers!
A Hint at the First Free Pattern Release
As you might have already guessed, I am hoping to release some free patterns on my Crochet Creature blog for you all to enjoy. Here is a little hint and tantalising photo of the first freebie in progress. It doesn’t give a lot away, does it? Have a guess as to what you think it is! All will be revealed very shortly, but don’t forget, if you sign up to my email newsletter you’ll get to find out before anyone else and get your hands on the pattern before blog release! Here’s a little clue for you to aid you in your guessing. It’s something relating to one of my favourite days of the year, one that takes place in February.
Have you guessed the mystery freebie yet? Let me know in the comments! I hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks update, it’s been a corker of a week for me and the business and I’m more excited than ever for the future of Crochet Creature.
Bye for now, crochet friends.
