Ebrine - Inspiration


Since last year I have embarked on the path of design.

As I wrote in an earlier blog, this came after a design contest I won.

Then I got a taste for it and decided that I wanted to make more designs.

I only design amigurumi, since I found out that I'm not the type to crochet clothes, let alone design.

There has been an unfinished cardigan waiting to be crocheted for 3 years. I just can't bring myself to do it.

I get the inspiration for the cuddly toys that I design from drawings that my youngest daughter has made. Those drawings gave me the idea to design a penguin, a whale and a tiger.

The inspiration for the meerkat, which I recently designed, came after we saw meerkats in a zoo.


Sometimes there are those periods when I am working on several projects at the same time.

Do you recognize that?

Then one project is not yet finished and I already see something new coming along that I would love to crochet.

Then there are various, unfinished, crocheted projects scattered around the house.

But in the end, of course, I will finish them one by one.

Design contest

This year is the Chinese Year of the Tiger. For a design competition I designed tiger Tobias.

This year 3 designs could win and I am one of the 3 winners of this competition.

I am of course very happy with that.

The pattern can now be downloaded for free from my website www.kroeliez.jouwweb.nl

So do you feel like crocheting tiger Tobias? Then quickly download the pattern!

Creative greetings, Ebrine
