Just a little update on my crafty endeavors (other than party printables)! The reason I started crocheting was because of crochet cuties aka amigurumi. This book is what originally inspired me to ask my Mom to teach me! I write more about how this book changed my life here!
(ok I just went down an amigurumi rabbit hole on amazon looking up that book – haha! There are so many great amigurumi books out there!)
I have always love these crochet cutie critters! Making them is faster than a big blanket project and they are just so cute!
The flamingos were made from a free pattern by Grace and Yarn. These mini flamingos are about 10″ tall made with worsted weight (4) yarn and a G hook. I have a thing for flamingos right now, probably because they are pink!
This cutie cactus is from the aforementioned Amigurumi World book! I used the Mr. Cactus pattern and added the flower from the Mrs. Cactus pattern! We will call her Ms. Cactus!
Finally to round out the crochet cuties – here is an adorable Sea Otter from this pattern from Shiny Happy World. I had it in my pattern stash and I don’t think its available anymore. Just search sea otter crochet pattern and you are sure to find a ton of them! It turned our pretty large and huggable since I used a chunky fuzzy yarn leftover from THIS project. I have a thing for otters as well – they are just so cute!
My current crochet project are some fun gifties for family and friends. Maybe gifts for Christmas, maybe for Mother’s Day – just depends. I will be sure to share when I can!
