You have probably seen amigurumi everywhere. The word means knitted stuff toy and it comes from Japan. Now of course there are little crochet toys as well as knitted and they are always cute.
I took up crochet this year and decided to try an make amigurumi toys. Not only do I have a cute and cute-loving daughter but I work at a children's after school club and I wanted to make some little toys for the prize box.
If you look towards the top of this page you will see some tabs. One new one is Useful Links. I am going to be adding links to sites and sellers where you can get patterns. So if you know of any then please let me know. I am particularly after very small toys.
Here are a few amigurumi that I have made recently.
This is the latest one. It is a tiny whale and the pattern is by June Gilbank of PlanetJune. I love this one as not only is it tiny but it is also made in one piece. (I hate sewing up!).
The next one is from a pullout called 'Christmas Toys' in 'Let's Knit' magazine October 2010 edition.
Lots of parts to sew up (sniff!)
