  11. Barbara

    I would love an English crochet pattern for this if there is one.

    • Zoe

      There is one, but it costs $1.99.

  12. Bev Berry

    So many requests for the pattern. I don’t see any answers. Is the pattern available, it would be such a shame not to share this beautiful artwork

  13. Rachel

    I believe the original artist is not from USA and in the original post she says there is no pattern available. (I want it too!)

  14. Amy

    Ok, so no pattern…what do you think the legs and tail are covering? Clearly she’s used embroidery floss, but do you think there is wire under there? These are too adorable!

    • donna

      amy crochet a chain and wrap it with embroidery floss, it should be firm enuf not too need wire.

      • Heather Hutchinson Ordover

        Do you think that’s how she did the tail, too? First tacking it into shape, then wrapping it? Or vice versa?

      • Heather Ordover

        Do you think that’s how she did the tail, too? First tacking it into shape, then wrapping it? Or vice versa?

        • donna

          wrapping it first I would think and then tacking it. that way you use the tail end of thread to tack it into place before burying it into the body of the animal. at least that is how i would tackle it

      • Lynn perez

        That’s a great idea…never would have thought of it. I was thinking pipe cleaners with the fuzz removed, then wrapped.

  15. Jenny Ogilvie

    try Pinterest

  16. Sheherazahde

    I went to her page and translated it. The materials include wire and a brooch pin.
    The legs and tails look like wrapped wire to me. Even some of the mouth details look like wrapped wire.
    She definitely uses embroidery floss and does some of the detail work with embroidery.

  17. Nicki

    I would love to have the pattern

  18. Sandra

    Was wondering if the pattern is available. English please. Thank you

  19. eno
