I’ve got amigurumi on the brain!
I bought a new container to keep my yarn in this weekend. And I have a ton more yarn than I have any business having :}
I’m working on a cute little bunny today. I’ve got half his head done and I just realized that I don’t have any fiber fill stuffing so I can’t finish his head! Drat! Must make a note to fill a little baggie with fiberfill stuffing.
Apparently it’s my goal to become a crazy crafting lady who always has crafting materials on her person.
It gives you a good conversation starter on the bus though! Here’s the pattern for the bunny that I’m working on now. I’m going to give mine a different name though. Aiko is too overused in anime. And it always makes me think of Keiko, Aiko, and Yuuko. Just like Tsuzuki, Yamada, and Tanaka. *chuckles* The two trios of side characters in Utena, for those of you who think I’ve just gone off into a random tangent in another language. Which I did. And now I’m rambling on.
Back to yarn! There are a ton of patterns you can get for free just by registering on the Lion Brand Yarn website. Just like the Octopus Pattern that I used on Saturday. Searching for amigurumi on thier website brings up a handful of patterns, and searching in google for “free amigurumi patterns” also nets a bunch.
Anyone else make these cute little things like me? I’d love to see some!
