That is one adorable creature.  When my oldest son was very young, he used to call them Flants  Grin

are they just crocheted moc. lights or did you crochet over pre-exsiting lights?

They are totally moc - just stuffed with batting.

Welcome, esmerelda!  It's always great to have new people join.  Glad to hear you are learning to crochet - good luck on the patterns and feel free to ask for help if you need it.

How do you get it to curve?  Does it have wire in it?

It does have wire - I actually used a clothes hanger.  That was one of the toughest parts to do - you were supposed to stuff it and then try and shove the wire into the stuffing, not fun!

Lipzilla, the first pattern is cute - the biggest difference between it and the ones I made is that the pattern you posted uses thread.

I couldn't find the String of Lights pattern in the second link.

This is another item I found while decorating yesterday.  I made it a few years ago and the pattern was from the Crafting Traditions magazine.

It's 24" from the bottom to the top of the curve.

Great job of using contrasting colors on the experienced square, craftdabbler UK!

Any chance you remember where you got the pattern from?

I figured someone would ask this so I spent some time today looking for it - I couldn't find the exact one but this PATTERN is similar.

I was decorating this morning and found some lights I had made a few years ago and thought I would share them with you.  They were originally meant for a swap but once I was done them, I just couldn't part with them  Grin

This is about 1/4 of the string

and, a single 'bulb'

I should add that this is not my own design - it was from a pattern.

Faunal, great job!  My favorite is the Woven Ribbons followed closely by the birdhouses  Grin
