Christen Haden is NeedleNoodles – a crochet extraordinaire based in Virginia.  she knits everything she eats and sells her designs through PDF form on Etsy – so that you can truly DIY.

the NeedleNoodles Etsy site is not limited to just knit food – she crochets Deep Sea Divers, animals, baby bibs, and the cutest grim reaper ever!  she has a book out called Creepy Cute Crochet that gives you step-by-step instructions on how exactly to make these little guys.  it has 96 pages of patterns from beginner level to advanced.

her second book is called Yummi Gurumi – and has over 60 pages of gourmet crocheted treats.

she also has a bunch of FREEEE patterns (my favorite word!).  you can make this baby pufferfish fo’ free! Here are step-by-step instructions on her website.


i think it’s great that she sells just the instructions and not the actual crocheted piece.  for some people, half of the fun is actually creating these little guys – and she gives you no choice but to put your hands and your brain to work and helps you create something adorable and awesome.  this would be such a fun activity for a party or they would work even as decorations on a wrapped present.
