Monkeys! There are so many summer birthdays!
At least it seems that way this year. But I’ve been having fun staying out of the heat of summer some to create for them. I’ve wanted to make a cute monkey pattern for a while. When I had two one-year-old birthdays, my little monkey of a nephew and his cousin that hangs onto her mama like a monkey, I knew I was going to try. Monkeys are tricky I’ve learned. Pattern I used a size G crochet hook and Lionbrand Fisherman’s Wool Nature Brown yarn, and for the face some wool/acryllic yarn from a sweater I unraveled into yarn.

Amigurumi.
I found a Koala Amigurumi Pattern in the Woman’s Day website and I have some off-white and gray organic cotton yarns on hand, so I made a pair of these small little stuffed koalas for my kids in reverse color.
Some ideas to make it differently: 1. This adorable little koala is about 3-5″ tall only (depend on your yarn and the matching hook size), install a key ring on it’s head and turn it into a key chain, hang it to the bag’s zipper. 2. If we sew the limbs closer to the center of the body and insert 4 small strong magnets to the tip of each limb, you can make it “huggy” and hug on a tree branch or at the edge of your curtain or your pencil, ruler etc… 3.
And, and…. instead of poly-fills, stuff beads into the body to weight it down and with the magnets of it limbs, it can be a cute memo holder on your desk too 4. Find the appropriate positions for the ears, approx at the center of the vertical cross section of the head, middle of the height. Lastly, stuff and sew the limbs to the body. "Tuto" tout en Musicalité !? Mardi 22 septembre 2009 2 22 /09 /Sep /2009 10:45 Alors que j'avais dans l'idée de faire une souris verte, j'avais découvert la souris de Lion Brand faite Là et l'avais donc aussitôt crochetée.
Et voici donc que j'ai poursuivi mon idée de Souris VERTE !

Spring Bunnies. When Craftzine asked me to make a Spring amigurumi pattern for them, I excitedly jumped at the opportunity.
Several months ago, I was inspired by a photo I saw on tumblr (there was no source at the time) of a floppy-eared bunny with big feet adorned with a pretty flower. As soon as I saw that photo, I knew I wanted to try making something similar. I recently found out that the bunny was made by Lue and Sue who does absolutely beautiful work. Ryan and I had an idea to use the same pattern to make two bunnies: a boy bunny with ears sticking straight up, and a girl bunny with floppy ears.
The boy bunny could be holding a carrot in hopes of wooing the girl bunny! I first worked on crocheting a wide head with big eyes positioned towards the bottom of the face. Instead of using felt for the lining of the ears, I decided to try using a pretty fabric as other amigurumi crafters have used. For the feet, I decided to still use felt to contrast the fabric. And here he is all complete!
