Son’s Popkes Shop

I just opened my own crochet pattern store, the Son’s Popkes Shop. It’s a shop at Craftsy. I will continue to post free patterns here, but I am also going to sell some patterns for a small amount at my store.

It’s something I’m very proud at and was looking very much forward to. Complex dolls like Starfox and the Lop Bunny I will sell there. More simple patterns, like Bomberman, I’ll post here for free. Because I needed to know if there would be enough interest in my patterns, I first offered the Starfox pattern for free, but on demand. I got so many request and positive reactions about the pattern that I got enough confidence in selling some patterns from now on.

So….crochet Starfox is the first pattern in my shop! ‘Feel free to look around….yes.’

And thank you all kindly, for your lovely and encouraging comments and the interest in my patterns, it’s absolutely great to hear from you, really!

Next project

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something after Starfox. I’m already working on my next project and have a long list of ‘popkes’ I want to design. I’ve posted that list a while back but the dolls on it have to wait a bit longer to be made…..

The project I’m working on now is a ‘crochet bunny with floppy ears’, a lop rabbit. Some time ago I made such a bunny pattern, in memory of our sweet pet Boefje. Because it was a very personal doll, I didn’t want to share the pattern I made for it, even though I got a lot of enthusiastic comments and request for it. That’s why making a similar crochet bunny got priority above the dolls on list.

This is the bunny I made back then.

"crochet lop rabbit"

I’m also setting up a Craftsy ‘shop’, and the pattern for the lop rabbit I’m going to offer there for a small amount.
