From crochet pattern to figurehead of CB's Creations
It was to be expected! A very own page on my website!
Franklin Forge is my pride, the start of CB's Creations, without him no website! So he has more than earned this page!
Franklin has become the figurehead for CB's Creations with a beautifully drawn portrait as a logo, you can find it on my business cards and on my stickers!! If you order stitch markers, you will also find his image on the card where I click the stitch markers.
Package for Mr. F. Forge
Franklin received a package from a distant uncle. What will be in the package? He already showed you 4 items.
Today he will show you number 5! Take a look here!
Mr. Franklin Forge, Steampunk Elf has lived in a small train station for many years. He loves steam engines! He is fascinated by clocks and time. He received his pocket watch from the first train conductor of the station. Every day he does his rounds to check that everything is running on time!

Free crochet pattern pocket watch
He also writes a piece of his stories in the newsletter every time: Franklin's Story. He is full of stories and always experiences something new! I couldn't live without him anymore.
If you sign up for Franklin's Stories, he also has the crochet pattern of his pocket watch for you. His gift for you!
His hat is part of his crochet pattern, if you crochet his hat with thicker yarn it will be a little bit bigger!
This page, this ode to Franklin, will regularly contain new stories by and about Franklin! He would also like to get to know all his brothers who were made by you! So did you crochet Franklin once? Then send a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and your photo will be placed on a special honorary gallery!
Victoria Amber Fleming
Victoria is Franklin's girlfriend and lives in a cottage near the sea. She loves to see, hear and smell the sea! She can often be found at the beach, because you never know what you will find. She always has a bunch of keys with her, handy to open doors and chests, which would otherwise remain closed. She also likes to travel, not only by boat, but also by train. Close to the coast is an old train station where she regularly comes...
In a series of blog stories, I have described step by step how Victoria Amber Fleming came into Franklin's life. The first part is appropriately: Psssst, I’m getting a girlfriend!
Package for Mr. F. Forge
Big news! Franklin has received a package from a distant uncle with all his grandfather's stuff!
With the package was a note: "From your grandfather I found a number of things, I think you can use them well! But beware, not everything works exactly as you think or expect!"
Today he is going to show the 5th item that was in the package!
Crochet Pattern Pattern: On the road with Franklin
Big news! Franklin has received a package from a distant uncle with all his grandfather's stuff! What was in it? A camera, a bottle, a bag, binoculars and a magic walking stick! All these items have their own story, which can be found on his own page on the website.
He can't wait to hit the road!
A Magic Walking Stick
A walking stick that can hear, see, smell and talk! This walking stick will show you the way wherever you go! He warns you if you don't choose the right path! And will chatter all the way!
A bag is always handy to have with you when you go out. This bag gives you exactly what you need, when you need it!
Just as the bottle fills with water when you are thirsty, you will find a nice sandwich in the bag when you are hungry or a key to open closed doors!
Of course you can also put your watch in the bag to read the time on the way.
Binoculars (Dutch Viewer)
These binoculars are a real Dutch Viewer. A Dutch Viewer is a lens viewer, you can look far with it, but not as far as a telescope, so you will not see stars. But this one is very special. You can look into the future with it. It shows you the adventures yet to come during your beautiful walks!
When you are on the road you will also get thirsty sometimes. The bottle then automatically fills with water to drink! There is always enough in it to quench your thirst!
This camera is not just a camera. Yes, you can take regular photos with it, but if you turn a button on the back, you can take a picture of the elf flying through the image! But you have to be fast, before you know it the elf is already gone!
Franklin can't wait to take pictures!
