Manic Birthday crocheting

Looks like my crafting break is well and truly over now - I've been non-stop crocheting for the last week all to try and have gifts ready in time for family Birthdays. I'm pretty proud of myself though with these two little cuties.

On your left you should see a little crochet frog who is looking very alert with his wide open eyes. This little guy was pretty easy too do especially as I opted to only do the easy feet for this one (I was in quite a rush and the hard feet version would have meant sewing on 24 individual toes). He has been sent out to one of my little nieces to enjoy as part of her Birthday present

On your right I would like to introduce the little elephant that I made up for my second little niece's Birthday (too many Birthdays!). This little one was also very easy to make (though when making the ears I really couldn't see how they would end up looking anything like elephant ears... but it all worked out in the end).

The main pattern is the same for both animals and these two are from the Kirstieskids 'Lazy Days 2' crochet pattern (which you should be able to purchase from Etsy here)

Just discovered your blog through crochetme magazine site & I just have to say you have the cutest patterns! I really love the elephant. He's too sweet.

Congratulations on the upcoming baby! I have a 17 month old & she's the light of my life. She has a huge collection of crocheted toys & she loves them. It's totally addicting & so much fun.
