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?
