Amigurumi: make a bunch!

Lately, I haven’t had much time for crafting, so I’m much more into crochet. As much as I love knitting, it usually takes me so long to get an item ready, that I feel that, for the time being, crochet is the way to go. It is much more quicker and its patterns are, most of the times, not so complicated. So I signed up for this amigurumi pattern swap and had to sort a lot of links and patterns out. The results are below; these are the links I sent to my partners. I sure hope whoever comes by this blog enjoys it!

Fortune cookies:

Easy to make, they would be great as party favors. As a matter of fact, I’ve seen this idea somewhere, but with cookies made of paper.

Octopus:

The flickr group has this pattern up on their main page and hundreds of versions of the tiny animal on its archive. The image I chose to illustrate – a pirate octopus – was made by GlamCookie.)

Pocket animals and forest friends:
http://www.sarahanns.com/crochetworks/animals.html
Learn how to make not one or two, but EIGHT different amigurumi: mouse, rabbit, racoon, robin, owl, skunk, chipmunk and porcupine.

Cherry pickers:

Lovely cherries may look beautiful on a fruit basket, but these can double as a cute pair of earrings!

Cute little bunny:

This is just the cutest bunny I’ve ever seen. I guess there is one kinda like this on that Softies’ book.

Poo:

I still don’t really know if having a little poo on your desk somewhere is lovely or plain disgusting. But this is quite an adorable amigurumi, really.

Peas in a pod:

This is, actually, a knitting project. I love small items of food, so I fell in love with this, even though I’m not one for peas (or any vegetables, in fact).

Interested in more patterns? Go have a look at this two links: AmiList e Coats and Clark.
