Crochet Amigurumi Tea Cup

I made this today – Crochet Amigurumi Tea Cup

After some not very subtle hinting from my Mum I made my first Amigurumi project today! Mum send my a Pin on Pinterest with the oh so subtle comment “hint hint”. As I’m on a bit of a family crochet gifting theme and it’s her birthday soon – shh don’t tell…

I used this free Lion Brand pattern and add the embellishments from the hint hint picture.

We had a girls day as hubby was at work, and it was a beautiful Sunny Winters Day.

We also did coffee and Gelato followed by some playing in the fountain…

which led to, some op shopping for a dry size 4 top….

followed by some sitting on a mat in the sun on the grass, crocheting, playing with Robo Poli cars and picking dandelions.

I hope Mum likes it and is OK with my firsts ever Crochet Amigurumi and its little faults… It’s a bit lop-sided and I’m thinking the saucer should have been the other way up….

This one can be used as a pin cushion, my Mum is a sewer, I put rice in the bottom and ripped open an old pillow (go the upcycle) to stuff the top.

Amigurumi wasn’t as fiddly as I thought, though this is quite a big Amigurumi, and it has made me quite keen to try another one, maybe for the upcoming niece/nephew…

Have you tried amigurumi? Any amigurumi hints and tips?

    This is so cute. I can imagine my girls would love these for a imaginary tea party 🙂 I wouldn’t mind one for my pins! If only I knew how to crochet. I am quite often tagging my SIL in crochet posts.:)
