Omnipom giveaway

Do you remember these guys?

Or how about this guy?

Or Tony?

When I first started to crochet these dolls were some of my first creations. We called them the Omnipoms and I had lots of plans to write children's books about their adventures.

Crochet design and pattern writing has overtaken my dreams of writing children's book but I couldn't leave these guys behind.
 Every year I get asked to make some for special presents and I when I get a cute idea I make an odd one to add to the gallery. I have been asked many times to write a pattern but I never got chance.

Then a few months ago I was contacted by Suncather craft eyes. They had seem my work and wanted to send me some eyes so I could use them in a design and then we'd have a nice giveaway. I got sent some amazing glow in the dark eyes and new right away this was the time to finally write the Omnipom pattern

I had a rare 3 day weekend with no Duttons or crochet work on so I settled down with my cats for a Omnipom filled weekend and these are the results...

 BOO, did I scare you. Its a crocheted BOO with a little tiny cute skull and a mini pumpkin.
 The omnipoms needed a friend so I gave them a cat made with more suncatcher glow in the dark eyes :)
 This is Trick she a light orange omnipom with a grey moon eye patch and a ghostly cuddle toy. Se has glow in the dark eyes too.
 This is Treat, he has a pumpkin eye patch and is holding the BOO sign with its skull.
Here they all are together. Don't you think they look cute?
