*FREE* Disney Crochet Patterns


Copyright infringement is a tricky and precarious path to trek. As I work on growing my crochet pattern database, I am wanting to move away from these Disney, Marvel, and DC crochet patterns. I loved making them while I did, and I certainly did love the income that I was able to bring in from them. But, if Disney decides to target me, there is no way that I could even try to “hold my own” and it would be so easy for these huge corporations to shut me down. That is a risk that I am not willing to take. So, lucky for you, these patterns will now all be available for FREE. That’s right, they are all listed on my Ravelry store front for absolutely no cost at all.

These are the only patterns of mine that I ask you to not sell. You can make them for personal use, or to donate to charities, or fundraisers. As with all of my patterns, please do not copy or redistribute the crochet pattern itself in any way. Thank you very much, and I hope you enjoy making these patterns as much as I have enjoyed designing them.

Emoji Hearts


Free Crochet Heart PatternIn the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I just couldn’t resist. These emoji heart softies might be one of my favorites. But don’t I say that about all of my patterns? What can I say, except that I love What I do? So, the basic crochet pattern to make hearts is available for free below. If you want the directions for adding Kawaii-style faces onto the heart, or if you’d like a printable pdf version of these crochet hearts, you’ll have to purchase the pattern HERE for just a couple of dollars. I’ve got to stay in business somehow, right? So, without further ado, the FREE crochet pattern for Valentine’s Day Hearts 😍

MATERIALS NEEDED

• Hook size: you can use whatever size hook you want. Keeping in mind that a larger hook will result in a larger Heart. I used E/4-3.5 MM in these images.

Princess Leia *FREE* Crochet Pattern (part 2)


Earlier in the week I talked about how much I love returning customers, and that I adore custom requests even more! I also published the Princess Leia crochet dress pattern for free (designed to fit an infant in the 0-6 month size range). So, I definitely recommend checking out that pattern.

Don’t you fret, I know that the Princess Leia costume is not complete!

Princess Leia *FREE* Crochet Pattern (part 1)


I love returning customers! They know how to work with me, and not only do they know what I am capable of creating, but they appreciate the time and effort that I put into something. When a previous customer comes to me, I will put them top of my list and fulfill their requests first, every time. Not to mention the 15% discount that these returning customers get to enjoy time and time again! There are perks to being a loyal Family Bugs fan for sure.

I might adore custom requests even more! So many times I have very many ideas of what to crochet next floating in my head. So many ideas, in fact, that I struggle to narrow it down to just one, or find difficulty in focusing on just one through to completion. I cannot even number how many works in progress I have going on right now, and I just purged my closet, throwing away several of these wips! So, when someone make a specific request, saying “can you please make me something?” I put it at thetop of my “to design” list, and then I have a deadline, and the motivation to get it done! Because I know a very specific person is just waiting for me!

So, when a returning customer asked me earlier this month to make a Princess Leia Crochet Costume for her 3-mo daughter for Halloween, I knew I just had to do it. And I also knew that the pattern had to be available for all of my wonderful fans as well! It fits right in with my disney princess collection, too! Because there are so many parts involved in this costume, however, I’ve broken it down into two parts. This is the first part consisting of the dress pattern, and in a couple of days I will be publishing the second part which will contain the crochet patterns for the light saber and Princess Leia’s iconic braided hair/hat/wig.

You will need a size h crochet hook, and worsted weight yarn in white and grey. That’s it. As far as materials go, this is a pretty simple pattern. I have also tried to stick with basic crochet stitches: ch, ss, sc, dc, dc2tog, and increases. As with all of my crochet patterns, my goal is to keep the directions as simple as possible. So if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email 😊

Thanksgiving Crochet Pattern Round-upi


From turkeys to cornucopias, pilgrims and Indians, to pumpkins and gourds…Thanksgiving is looming ever nearer! But if you are tired of crocheting the same old generic pumpkins and giant turkeys, why not try these crochet patterns to spruce up your holiday decor!

I really enjoy this Harvest Crow from PamsPatterns. Definitely not your typical Thanksgiving decor, but with scare-crows and sunflowers being very much “fall”, I think he fits right in. Plus, he looks pretty well-done from what I can see.

The idea of newborn cocoons is a fun one. They are so versatile. My kids were all a bit too old by the time I discovered the novelty, so I’m not sure how practical they are…but definitely great for photo shoots. This corn on the cob cocoon from June Bugs Crochet is definitely different and worth considering for all of your baby needs. I think if you were to swaddle the baby, then wriggle them into the cocoon, it might make for easier passing around to the relatives (if you are so inclined).

Is there such a thing as “thanksgiving gift giving”? I’ve never heard of it, but for the more generous of you out there, this gift basket from Yarnovations might be a must!

I love most of Planet June’s patterns. I’m not sure what these mushrooms have to do with thanksgiving, but they are pretty adorable and very well-done to boot. I definitely recommend checking out all of her patterns!

There aren’t a whole lot of crochet wreaths out in the market. There might be a desire for them, if done properly (hint, hint). This fall-themed one by Crochet Shop Carolina would be adorable on someone’s door to welcome feast goers for sure! I’m not sure if the little animal is suppose to be a hedgehog or a possum, but either way it’s pretty cute…oh, if I were to actually read the description, it is a hedgehog 😛

This acorn pattern by Caper Crochet is absolutely precious! How much fun would it be to make up a bunch of these, give them to the children attending your feast, and letting them pelt each other (preferably not within reach of breakables…so, send them outside!)? OR, as favors for all of your visitors. Whatever you want to use them for, I love it!

These cow dolls from Pams Crochet might be one of the best things Ive come across in a long time. They are patriotic, and summery, and Christmas-y, and halloween-y, and a bit of some thanksgiving-Ness thrown in there too. This is how I need to be marketing all of my crochet dolls 😛

I think we need to work together to expand this list! Please, find some “interesting” crochet patterns that are marketed as Thanksgiving, or fall. Comment below with your treasures, and not only will I edit this post to include it, but I will also include a link back to you. So, free publicity on your part, and a really fun, interactive, list on my part.

Harry Potter Newborn Hat and Necktie Onesies


When one of my dearest childhood friends announced recently that he is expecting twins, I knew exactly what I needed to make him for a baby gift. It needed to have something to do with Harry Potter, because him and his wife adore the wizard in world and even had a subtle undertone of such at their wedding a couple years ago. It needs to be gender neutral, or easily transferred to the other gender, since it’s still too early to know for certain, AND dr’s still mess up from time-to-time. It really was a no-brained. I’m going to make them some Harry Potter beanies (with removable flower clips). As I did some quick research, I also decided to make some necktie appliqués that I could sew onto some onesies to make it a more complete “costume”. So, like always, you guys get to enjoy the patterns 😊

Materials Needed

  • Three different hook sizes: K/6.5, J/6.0, E/3.5
  • Worsted weight yarn in the proper colors: Slytherin – Green and Grey, Ravenclaw – Blue and White, Hufflepuff – Yellow and Black, Gryffindor – Maroon and Gold

RND 2: Work 2 sc stitches in each stitch around (16)

RND 3: Hdc 1, *Work 2 dc in the next, dc 1* (24)

Yoda inspired Crochet hat


I have a short friend. My short friend just happens to also be a teacher. This teacher has a team that she works with. Her team is planning on Star Wars themed Halloween costumes this year. So, naturally, the shortest member of this team of teachers, my friend, has to be Yoda. She isn’t too thrilled with this idea, but I told her that she just needs to let me Crochet her a hat, and then she can drape a bed sheet around her, and the costume is finished. It’s so easy. Because I love my friend dearly, I knew I couldn’t just make a basic crochet hat for her. I need to make something pretty and feminine, and something that won’t always have Yoda’s pointy ears sticking out of it. Hhmmnn…

First of all, I needed a good yarn. I chose some Caron Simply Soft in dark sage. It’s a nice swampy Yoda color. But not too grody so that she can’t match it with other outfits if she so chooses. I think it’s a nice, neutral green color. Then, I did a ton of research in the lovely world of Pinterest to find a pretty hat pattern. My criteria was pretty strict: single color, pretty texture, no gaping holes, not slouchy, no buttons or flowers, or pompoms.

After about an hour of looking, I finally settled on the diamond ridges hat. It’s a free revelry download, which is always a bonus. But as far as Patterns go, this one was actually pretty complicated. My first complaint is that there is no indication of what hook size to use. I think a small hook will result in a more clearly defined texture, but too small of a hook means it might be a bit small for an adult head. I used a j-hook because it’s one of my favorites. It took three tries before I got ROW 6 to come out to the right stitch count. I’m not even sure I got it right. The written pattern is confusing so I had to rely on the pictures. I really liked how she did the pictures, though. Each new ROW was done in yellow, while the main hat was in blue. It definitely took a lot of time and effort to put all of that together. Overall, I’m not terribly fond of the pattern, and after three tries working on ROW 7, I frogged the whole thing. And continued my search. After spending another hour looking, and not finding anything, I finally decided to just use a hat pattern that I’ve already designed…the sea shell pony tail hat. And instead of leaving the hole at the top for a messy bun, I just added another RND of dc2tog and closed it off.

Now that the hat is finished, it’s off to make the ears. Again, I perused the wonderful world of Pinterest trying to find a free pattern that I liked. Once again, the Pinterest world came up short. I really liked these yoda ears from Bee Mine Crochet, but I’m not willing to pay $5.00 JUST for the ears. I know, I’m a cheapstake. So, once again, I just designed my own. And I’ve included the pattern for those down below. So, instead of attaching the ears directly to the hat, I put them on little green felt rounds, which I then attached to some hair clips, and voila! Removable yoda ears!! I am quite pleased with how it all turned out and know my short little teacher friend is going to love it as well.

YODA’s EARS

RND 1: ch 2, work 5 sc stitches all into the second ch from hook, ss to first to join (5).

RND 2: ch 1, sc all the way around (5), do not ss to first to join, but work around in one continues RND.

RNDs 3-17: inc once for every RND. Final stitch count should be 20

State-shaped Flag-colored Pillow Crochet Patterns


PURCHASE THE PATTERNS FROM THE FAMILY BUGS ETSY SHOP

I am one of those people. A blissfully ignorant soul who doesn’t watch the news. I know that most people do not understand how I can go through life not knowing the events that are going on. Really, I find the news to be horribly depressing and scary, and I like to fill my life with positive influences. For the most part, I see the world as being safe and good and honest. And I’m happy, and I want to keep believing that way. Besides, if something big enough happens, word always gets around via Facebook or word of mouth. I don’t live in a bubble.

It was a Monday of the last week of August, and I was working on the girls’ Halloween costumes. Mr. Lovely’s birthday is in mid October, and I am throwing him a party this year, because it’s a big number-year. The kids decided that it should be a Texas-themed party complete with costumes. So, Mr. Lovely is going to be the Texas flag, I am going to be a mockingbird, the Grasshopper has decided to be an armadillo, and Bumblebee and Ladybug want to be a Bluebonnet and Cactus, respectively. So, I was crocheting some hats to go with their costumes (of course I’ll be publishing THOSE patterns, too), and I started getting texts from friends that live elsewhere in the U.S. “hope you are safe from these storms.” Well, as a person who also doesn’t watch the weather, I just shrugged my shoulders and answered, “we are high and dry, sunny and hot. I appreciate your concern.” Mostly, I don’t think people realize how big Texas really is. I didn’t think much of it until I got on Facebook the next day. Even then, I didn’t comprehend the magnitude of what was happening, “flooding in South Texas? What a tragedy.” And my life continued going as it always had. But, as more and more people kept talking about what happened and what was continuing to go on, I started to realize just how catastrophic this thing really was.

By Wednesday afternoon, I made the decision to do something to help. After some quick research, I came up with the idea to create a Texas-shaped flag-colored decorative pillow Crochet Pattern. And everything that I made from the sale of the pattern would go to help fund relief efforts from Hurricane Harvey. I loved the idea of sending money directly to people, but I also realized how incredibly biased and unprofessional that would be. As a business, I didn’t feel that I could honestly do that. So, Mr. Lovely suggested Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF). After a bit of research I agreed.

LCIF sent $100,000 to aid victims to Hurricane Harvey just as soon as they could. And as a foundation, they can help in ways that an individual just can’t. We have been very active in the local Lions Club for several years, so I know that it is a trustworthy foundation that is going to use the $$ I send in an appropriate and helpful way, not pocket it like so many other foundations.

And so I got to work designing. This first pillow was definitely not the hardest thing I’ve ever designed. In fact, it was actually quite simple. I found a graph for perler beads and just adapted it for crochet stitches. Each square (or bead) represented one single crochet stitch. Of course I wasn’t happy with the first one I made, so I had to make another one and tweak the colors a bit. The end result, though was quite pleasing to me. So pleasing, in fact, that I soon decided to abandon my previous designing plans and create more state-shaped Flag-colored decorative throw pillow Crochet patterns.

Of course I had to start with the states that I’ve lived in, so after I completed the Texas Flag state Pillow (where I have been raising my own family for the past seven years), I made Tennessee (I was born and raised there), and then Florida (where I went to college and met Mr. Lovely), and I’m currently working on Kentucky (which is where I lived for a few short months while Mr. Lovely was interning). So, those patterns are all currently available on my etsy shop. I am taking requests for which state to make next, so feel free to comment that bellow!

As I’ve been overhauling the FamilyBugs design business, my first goal has been to keep the crochet patterns as simple as possible so that they can be easily duplicated. What’s the point of designing a crochet pattern if it is too complicated for anyone else to follow it? So, each of these pillows use basic crochet stitches: single crochet (sc), chains (ch), slip stitch (ss), and single crochet two together (sc2tog). Most of them don’t even include color changes (because I know how much you hate changing colors all the time). Tennessee has a lot of color changes (it’s done in a method called tapestry crochet), but I’m thinking about changing that to make it even more simple for y’all. I remember how daunting tapestry crochet was to me at first.

All you need to crochet your own decorative pillows is a size f crochet hook. You can use a larger size if you want, but it’s going to result in a looser stitch which will result in some of the stuffing showing through. I HATE seeing the stuffing, so I recommend a smaller hook. Definitely nothing larger than an I. Worsted weight yarn in your desired colors are also needed. I think red heart super saver is perfect for these pillows. It’s a durable yarn, easy to work with, easy to buy, and washes well without fuzzying up. Plus, I’m pretty sure it’s resistant to sun damage (although I’ve never tested that), just in case you want to make these pillows for outside usage. The last thing you need to make your own pillow is the stuffing.

Korok Child *Free* Crochet Pattern


At the beginning of the summer, we invested in the new Nintendo switch video game console. Of course that means we also got our hands on the Zelda: Breath Of The Wild game. I played the game for a while, and then I became “the girl in the chair” to walk my husband through the game. All three of the kids got invested in the story line. After my husband beat the game the first time, we decided…or rather I decided, that he should play through again but differently. So this time, the first focus was to find these cute little tree people that are hidden all over the place. They are called Korok children, and when you find them they give you Korok seeds that you can then exchange to expand your inventories.

Naturally, I just had to crochet some korok seeds and a korok Child for my children to play with. They’ve had the best time with these relatively simple little toys, and you guys are also in luck! Because I wrote down my pattern process, took pictures along the way, and am now sharing the pattern with you for *FREE* I hope you guys enjoy this one, and share your pictures with me, I’d LOVE to feature some of your beautiful artwork (just send them to familybugs@gmail.com).

If you’d like to download the PDF to print off and keep, you will have to go to my etsy store and purchase it…I know, I know, but I’ve gotta make a living somehow!

MATERIALS NEEDED

• Hook size E/4-3.50MM

• Worsted weight yarn in desired colors – whatever color or combination of colors you would like. I used a light brown and tan color for the body and limbs, and manually changed at random intervals. A variegated yarn might be easier, or just using a solid color will work as well. I have not written in the color changes. And then a light green and medium green for the leafy face mask.

• Black felt – just a tiny bit for the face details

• Safety eyes

• Stuffing – polyfil or other
