Bandit the Raccoon – Free Crochet Pattern


Bandit is an adorable little Raccoon I sketched out awhile ago. I made a moose as well but he isn’t typed yet.

Make sure you follow me on Instagram to have a say in what I make next. The last poll between Red from Fraggle Rock and Boo Berry was overwhelmingly for Boo Berry.

If you make Bandit, please use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it.

Like usual, this pattern is not tested. If you have problems let me know.

For tested patterns, kits and more, please check out my Etsy shop. Free Crochet Pattern for a Raccoon

Horned Headband – Free Pattern


I had this odd idea to add horns to headbands. We are going to a Anime Comic Con this summer, so really I was thinking of an easy cosplay for myself.

So far I have come up with 4 different types. I haven’t got my daughter to pose with all the headbands.

Crocheted Horned Headbands

Here’s me in my first set, before I finished them.

Small crocheted horns

Here’s the first one finished. They were immediately annexed by my teenager.

Betty the Yeti – Free Crochet Pattern

Uploading images is proving difficult today. Make sure you check out what I have been up to on Instagram.

Meet Betty the Yeti. I created her for a contest. I didn’t win, but I adore her.

She is made with Bernat Blanket Yarn which is what gives it the super soft snuggliness.

Remember she isn’t tested. Let me know if you have any questions or issues. Please us #drunkenauntwendy if you post so I can find it and give you props.

Free Crochet Pattern – Lucy the Lobster


I’m still beading and working on the new ami-along from amigurumipatterns.net. It is a princess and her elf friend. I will post pictures when I’m done. It is nowhere near as large as last month’s 2 foot tall pirate bear.

Lucy is next in the Cuddly Aquarium Collection. She’s in the testing process now. Let me know if I should do a video of how to do the claws. The other members of the Cuddly Aquarium include Louie the Shrimp and Gus the Baby Platypus. If you are a member of my mailing list you have access to even more from my Cuddly Aquarium series.

Lucy is a sassy lobster. She doesn’t appreciate being called a bottom feeder and she absolutely loved SNLs Diner Lobster sketch this week. Make her in any color. I think, blue, green or purple would be fun. Make sure to #drunkenauntwendy if you post a picture of your completed Lucy.

Cupcake bottom tutorial


I finally figured out how to do video tutorials.

If you are in my mailing list, you will get a pattern for you Birthday for a super cute cupcake named Suzie Q.

You can also purchase the pattern or a kit to make your own cupcakes in my Etsy shop.

The cupcake bottom is a little tricky.

The following videos walk you through how to complete the cupcake bottom.

Here’s how to do the ribbing on the side of the cupcake bottom:

Here’s how to finish off the cupcake.

I’m still weaving, but I’ve decided to teach myself a new craft. I’m trying to make a beaded cuff. It has been challenging.
