Hello my dear blog friends and crafters :)
Today, I'd like to introduce to you this little amigurumi guy!
As you may already know, ami-gu-ru-mi (編みぐるみ）is a Japanese term for a crocheted or knitted stuffed toy. This one is a crocheted version made by me.
To make amigurumi, I had to begin by first crocheting these small body parts... a pair of hands, feet, and ears, as well as the large head, body, and an oval shaped mouth area.
I then stuffed each body part with a poly stuffing.
The body parts are joined... But he has no face yet (scary, huh?)
BTW, to make this amigurumi, I basically followed this Japanese book to make this bear guy.
Title: Cute Animal Amigurumi
Images from the book. Teddy bears and friends...
Cute pigs and meerkats...
A cat relaxing with his friend...
Finally, creating his face was the fun part :) I got his eyes from our local Joann store, and I carefully handstitched his nose and mouth.
With his new face, now he came to life!! Doesn't he look happy??
And here's a message from my little guy...
Happy crocheting and happy amigurumi making!
Hope you have a relaxing weekend filled with crafty moments...
