Hippos in the dark

As many of you know I love all of Heidi bears designs and if my pocket allows I love to try and make all which she makes available to purchase. Many of her patterns are for crochet. Part of her superb pattern packages include excellent tutorials and how to guides, either stitch by stitch and how you join as you go for her motifs. 

I’ve made so many african flower motifs, I can actually crochet them in the dark whilst watching TV. 

Here is small selection of her patterns I have completed in the past. I love them all so much, should you feel inspired to make one yourself then please click on to the link below…
