I mostly make them up as I go along, I like to have a picture of what I'm supposed to be making. I don't turn patterns, I've tried writing it as I make, but it slows me down, and I like to crochet with my brain in neutral (it's happiest state).
Jack likes dino's, and aliens, and stuff from the tv progs he watches. He's recently started asking for dino's that I can't even pronounce. I put him off (wicked Nana) by saying, just bring me a picture and I'll make it. He finally said, well can you just make me a Panda.....you don't need a picture for that do you. He had his usual sweet smile but I'm sure there was a trace of sarcasm in his voice lol.
An Alien, he'd like all his toys this size, but his Mom said she'd need another house for them.
dinos from ice age 3
Another alien, falling out of his bed lol.
From ice age 3.
Turtle from Nemo
I'd started this for my daughter, she'd reminded me I never got her the pony she'd wanted as a child lol. I nearly finished and I just didn't like it.....Jack did, so of course.....The bits of loose yarn is where he had a try at sewing.
Some of you may recognise these from Shaun the Sheep. I think this is the mommy.
Shaun and a needle felted Timmy

That's all folks, well done if you managed not to fall asleep.
