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...
very cute! He has real character
He is adorable - fantastic work. Can't wait to see what other amigurumi creatures you come up with.
Super Kawaii! I like the polar bears on the cover of the book, too.
so cute amy! I couldn't hunt down your email, so thank you for stopping by my blog and I was definitely happy to link to your blog. :)
I love your amigurumi ! He is soooo cute !
Thank you, ladies, for leaving such sweet comments on my post!!
@Hiromi - yes, my next amigurumi project may that cute polar bear guy on the cover of the amigurumi book!
@Anna - Thanks again to you, Anna, for the increased traffic that I'm getting to my fabric tray tutorial post, all coming from for your earlier link!!
@gazimama - Hmmm...I may be able to hung this amigurumi bear guy with a key chain or something, but I'm afraid that he's too big for that (lol). Hope all is well for you and your family!!
LOL!! Apparently I have that book too! and I did it before, using the same color and the same yarn that u used.. nicely done. :D
