My friend, for whom I made a little duck
, also requested an owl and I was happy to oblige.
What a cute little guy he is...big owl eyes and a little beak...
To make him, I followed a pattern in my all time favorite amigurumi book
; seriously this book, and the other two by the same author, are so full of crochet cuteness...if you have ever been interested in amigurumi, I would highly recommend these books. The patterns are clear and simple and the toys that you can make are adorable, as you can see here.
Here is Little Duck
and Hoot together....
Finishing up these two and seeing them sitting side by side has really inspired me to make more amigurumi friends. I've earmarked the patterns that I want to do, but that is as far as it will go for now. For the next month before Christmas I need to focus on gifts that I want to make. I'll just add my amigurumi friends to my 'to make' list for the new year. Isn't it wonderful to have a lot of crafty ideas? Can you imagine how boring life would be if that was not the case?
I'm joining in with the Thistlebear Winter Project Link Party.
oh my goodness, are they adorable or what??ReplyDelete
Thank you Karen...Delete
These amigurumi are very cute! I have never crocheted any but I have knitted one a few years ago, a little Loch Ness monster. It is nice to look forward to new projects, isn't it?ReplyDelete
Thank you Christina. A Loch Ness Monster sounds adorable. I love looking forward to new projects, it is so fun.Delete
They are such cuties! You're right, life would be boring without lots of new creative projects to try.ReplyDelete
Thanks Bekki. And thank goodness for so many creative projects in the queue.Delete
Hi Rachel, thanks for joining in with my link party! I love them both. Hoot is especially adorable, he reminds me of my elementary school's mascot, an owl called Hootie. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Jennifer. How adorable that your elementary school mascot was an owl...Delete
