Rosie Free Pattern

Remember the Jetsons? Now, I’m not that old, the cartoon was re-released in the the 80s. Plus the movie was release in 1990. Tiffany was Judy! I know, that still makes me old. Anyway, I always wanted a robot maid. Sadly, they don’t actually exist. I tried a Roomba type floor sweeper, but it kept getting lost under the coffee table.

Anyway, I’ve been feeling a lot of nostalgia lately for the cartoons of my youth. Proven by Strawberry Shortcake.

I’m working on videos and typing lots and lots of patterns.

As always, the pattern hasn’t been tested. If you make her, use #drunkenauntwendy or tag me so I can see your take on my little creation. She’s a quick crochet, you should be able to get her done in about an evening.

Free Crochet Pattern – Strawberry Shortcake

I have so many patterns to type. I am working on it as my husband and I decided to build a wine bar from scratch and that is taking a lot of my time. I am also working on Youtube tutorials. The first one will be Axel the Axolotl. Alas, my day job gets in the way of actually shooting and editing videos, but I am plugging along.

One of the things that helps me with designing is trying other peoples patterns. Here’s Krakken Girl!

Krakken Girl

I think I should have made her hair a touch longer, but I loved the sweater and using wire for the tentacles. You can find her shop here. There are some really fun and funky patterns. I obviously don’t have time to make them all, but I can dream.

Anyway, the way the pattern instructed me to put the spots on the tentacles inspired me to try Strawberry Shortcake. I was having the hardest time figuring out how to put the strawberries on her hat. Then it hit me, red sharpie.

Remember Strawberry Shortcake? You don’t have to be old like me, there have been a ton of reboots.

Strawberry Shortcake Mini

As a child of the 80s, I wanted the Strawberry Shortcake toys so bad. Her and her gang besting the Purple Pieman definitely made it to my daily play time.

Here’s the free pattern. Remember free patterns have not been tested. There may be typos or issues. If you make her tag me using @drunkenauntwendy or #drunkenauntwendy so I can see your take.

Have fun.

Axolotl Plush

I just finished making this super cute Axolotl plush.

I’ve been seeing these little creatures everywhere and I just had to make one. I like this project because it is totally customizable. Change up the colors, give it a different face, add eyelashes, etc. The sky is the limit for making this one your own.

I am teaching myself how-to videos, and this will be the full tutorial when done. I need to reshoot it as my hands managed to drift out of the camera. I will put it up on my Youtube channel when it is done (Right now, it is just a tutorial on how to make a circle) Then I will set it up for sale on Ravelry, Etsy and here (Gotta love those digital downloads). Also there will be kits, yay kits.

I’ve got a ton of sketches ready to go, I will continue to crochet and post them as soon as I get them up.

Mickey Mouse Champagne Cork

I’ve been working on some pop culture throwbacks. My favorite so far is this big guy.

Ludo from the Labyrinth
Side view of Ludo

It’s Ludo from the classic movie the Labyrinth. I was so excited to make him. Special bonus, this time I managed to make a left and right hand. I am notorious for forgetting to switch the thumbs.

He’s done with Homespun, which isn’t my favorite to work with, but it gives me the best results after I use the slicker brush. He’s being typed and I’ll hopefully have him to testers soon.

Now on to the free pattern.

Free Pattern

It’s a long way to Christmas, but you might want to start making these little ornaments now. At least you can start drinking some bubbly to get the supplies.

There are many more corks to come, I’m thinking I might do Christmas in July and a whole new set of corks. Then in preparation for the best holiday ever (Halloween), I will start with more minis. I may have lost my sketch, but I can always come up with more.

As usual, the free patterns aren’t tested. If you make this one, throw out my #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it on Instagram.

Kits and tutorials are coming.

Before starting, paint your safety eyes yellow leaving a black pupil. Cover with a clear varnish.

HEAD – in BLACK
The head is made by doing an oval increase. Sometimes it helps to mark where your increases are going to go with a spare piece of contrasting yarn. Just note that the first row is worked on both sides of the starting chain. The face is then embroidered on before you add the hair and stuff him.

Cheetara – Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet Cheetara Doll

New Year, Old Pattern.

I’m trying to make typing patterns more of a goal than it has been in the past.

If you follow me on Instagram you know I have been painting and it is taking a lot of time. Plus I was inundated with toy plushies for Christmas orders.

Now, I am working on a fantastic custom order based off of Kevin the Bacon Scarf. Stay tuned for more updates.

Did I mention, I’m also opening a wine bar and patio. Needless to say typing patterns has not been a priority. I’m trying to fix that.

As I have said before, it is hard to find the comic book ladies in crochet form. Everyone goes to your male heroes, but the ladies are underrepresented.

Remember Thundercats? I do, I wanted to be Cheetara when I was younger. (I was young and didn’t understand cartoons vs reality). So I made my very own plush Cheetara. There is needlefelting and quite a bit of hair, but she should be fairly simple once you get those done.

As always if you make her use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find her on Social Media and give you a thumbs up.

SL ST – Slip Stitch
INC – Make two Single Crochet in Same Stitch

Puff Stitch –(Insert the hook in the stitch, yarn over, draw the yarn through the stitch) repeat 2 more times. You should have loops on your hook. Yarn over and draw through all 6 loops on the hook. Push the stitch out.
BLO – Back Loops Only
FLO – Front Loops Only

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.

Before starting the head, clip a section of three lashes per eye. Glue to the flat portion of your safety eyes and set aside to dry.
