A Bit of Prep... Crochet

There are a few things I'd like to crochet for my loved ones this Christmas. I've bought a couple of presents and hidden them away and want to make a start on the creative side.

I've seen a lovely minion phone holder that will look nice on Imogen's bedside table (and be practical) and how could I resist making this cute Olaf from Disney's Frozen.



Unfortunately my Imo isn't quite as enamoured by Olaf as she would have been a few years ago, but luckily my son's girlfriend has a 5 year old daughter who thinks Disney princesses and all that goes with them are the most wonderful things ever.

I've checked with her mummy that she doesn't have one yet, and can't wait to give her a new friend at Christmas.


I'm pleased it didn't take me too long to crochet him up, the best time is when Mitzi is asleep




Otherwise I have to fight her for the yarn...

Take care

  1. He is so cute! Where did you find the pattern? And I love the idea of a Minions phone cover! I'm making cup cosies for my family, so I'm flitting between monsters, turtles and owls!

  3. I think Olaf is very cute, but nowhere near as cute as Mitzi, awww, It's no fun when daughters get too old for Disney things, is it?

  7. Olaf is very cute. You'll be so glad you started your Christmas making early when everything gets so hectic later in the year. x

  9. The Olaf is great, my daughter would like it, and your kitten is cute, our mittens (kitten) is coming up to 4 months and I have the same problem when it comes to crochet or knitting!
