Some changes

When I started Son’s Popkes, I hadn’t designed that much crochet patterns yet, but I wanted a cheerful header with ‘popkes’ in it. I made some illustrations of dolls I had made and one of a doll I was sure I was going to make. The cat that was. But I’ve never made such a cat and don’t feel like making that one either….

I think it’s better to only have illustrations in my header of dolls I’ve actually made, and now I had enough to do so. Especially Finse needed to be in it. Because the cat is out of the header now, it was strange to keep him as blog icon, so I choose another appropriate doll for that, and Flam is now my new blog icon.

It does feels a bit strange to remove my happy cat. I associated him with my bog….I’ve always known I was going to do it, but still. I can always change it back….

Here’s a little image to remember him.

New Teddy images

My crochet teddy bear is one of the first crochet patterns I designed. Back then I didn’t create a little studio for photographing my dolls and because of that I never had images of Teddy like the ones I make now.

So, I decided to take some new and better images of Teddy.

Teddy-2

Because my old Teddy bear pictures are ‘high ranking’ in google search, I can’t, dare to replace them, even though I like these better.

This bear will always be very special to me. He’s very photogenic and has this funny expression which I adore.

You can find the original teddy post here, and the pattern is for sale here or via direct order.

 

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!
