Always wondering what color combinations I’m using in my creations? Scroll down to see what colors are used. These are almost, only made with 100% guetermann. Some pictures are older. They are from the time before I made the transition to Guetermann only. Some animals are available as a pattern, some are made with patterns (free or bought) from the internet.

I was on a vlog interview by Koffie & Wol recently. I got to show (off) my tiny creations and tell how I do it. It is in dutch but lots of fun to watch me doing it. @10:46min my interview starts. Click the picture view more….
I often get the question if there are special patterns for micro-crochet. The answer is no. Although I create my own patterns that are better adapted for micro-crochet you can also use any pattern available.
Here is a list where I got some patterns from (If I still know where I got them). Just click the picture to enter the website where the pattern is available.
Private patterns (for now, lack of time)
You can also leave a message to motivate me making more patterns available for sales. It does not have any priority because I do not know how much you want me to make patterns. Or if any other pattern(link) about the animals I made is missing. I could try to look it up and add to the list.
1.] What kind of thread do you use?
—-I use Guetermann sew-all sewing thread.
2.] Do you use a Magnifying glass?
—-No, I don’t use it. The view is like being underwater. A good lamp or sunlight is enough.
3.] How long does it take to make a miniature?
—-That is so difficult to answer. It depends on the size, stitches used and many other factors.
4.] Where can I buy the hooks you use?
—-They can be bought in my shop. Here is direct link to the hooks.
5.] Where can I find the patterns to crochet so small?
—-I do have some patterns in my webshop but, actually you could use every pattern available as long as the hook matches the threads.
To make things more clear I made a little video.
Here is a little video on how I crochet the first 12 stitches of an amigurumi. In the beginning I have to get a good grip on the thread after that you can see 12 stitches being created. Let me know what you think of the video.
In one word. Gütermann. And because I have every color I can make all animals in every color.
During my journey in the world of miniature crochet I came to the conclusion that this brand is the best for my hobby.
Why is it so good then?
Well… It is the thinnest thread on the market.
There are no thick and thin areas where I came across when using other brands.
The normal thread is called Gütermann Polyester all-sew thread. It’s a count 100, especially made for the consumer threads. To be found in most haberdashery stores in up to 400 colors. Beige bobbin color, 19 mm in diameter, labeled Gütermann 100m or 200 m, 100%Polyester.
There is a saying:
The joy you have when purchasing a cheap spool of thread lasts shorter than the pleasure you receive with the result from a good brand.
Here is a website where they sell individual bobbins. Jaycotts.co.uk And they ship overseas!
