I love Amigurumi so much! I never thought I’d like making crocheted animals and cute thing as much as I do. But I do. I really, really do.
There are so many adorable patterns available to crochet. And I’ve purchased my fair share of them in the past month. But, as fun as making something from a pattern is, I also dreamed of making my own animal from my imagination only.
Today, I jumped in with both feet and gave it a whirl. And I have to say, I really kinda like the end result. It’s a tiny little interesting looking bear. I plan to do another one with bunny ears, cat ears, different colors etc. I also need to tweak the pattern, which, by the way, I didn’t even write down – so I need to do another one quick before I forget how I did it. ha! That is how I roll.
I gave the little guy a bow-tie but I could have as easily made a bow for its head and turned it into a girl bear. I want to play with felt accents, maybe crocheted appliques and so on.
I am so lucky to have the time available in my life to play with yarn! I can’t imagine a day where I’m not crocheting or hand embroidering. I’m very blessed that I get to work from home and craft daily.
In a follow-up blog post, I’m going to share my favorite Amigurumi patterns that I’ve purchased, and/or found online and my favorite patterns for absolute beginners to Amigurumi. So be on the lookout for that, too!
