Ami Amour » your place for cute crochet plushies! » Page 2

Having been my first time there, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it blew my expectations away. What I like about smaller cons is that it’s a lot more intimate so I get to know a lot of people better, especially my fellow artists around me. I got to see some familiar faces again and make some new awesome friends as well! Friday was a little slow, but Saturday and Sunday definitely picked up for me. The day before the con I didn’t get any sleep at all because I was frantically trying to finish up some of my crochet plushies. On the second day I remembered to bring my cube box and I think setup began to look a little nicer.

I had the most awesome table partner. I had a great time meeting all the fabulous people who came through. One was a poisonous Mario Mushroom for John. Another was a Futurama brain slug. I forgot to take a picture of Poo that I made for this cute little girl ^^. An awesome Lolita style Rogue outfit.

Free Amigurumi Crochet Patterns with love for the Nerdy » » Alien Hominid, Chibi Kawaii Cat, Bunny and Bear Amigurumi Patterns

I was working on a new pattern for a flexible pattern that could be made into various cute, chibi-style animals or humanoid forms, when my husband pointed out how well suited the head shape was to make the pattern into an Alien Hominid. Not content with just a kitty, bear and bunny rabbit, and eager to implement any aspect of nerdery possible, I endeavored to make his dreams come true and set about crafting him his very own Alien Hominid, which he adores. This pattern is a flexible chibi-style pattern that can be modified to make any cute chibi style animal or humanoid. The oversize head, disproportionate limbs and tiny pot bellied body seal the pattern in the genre of chibi-deformed cuties. It is quite simple and works up fast, creating a finished doll around 4 inches tall in around 1 hour for most experienced crocheters.

Like the three musketeers... only awwwwwww! So yellow... so cute... Cuties! It`s a pile up! Yarn Used Apple Green Hot Pink Hot Blue Sunshine. Glow in the Dark Kodama Pattern. One day I discovered something special and unexpected.

Glow in the Dark Kodama Pattern

I found out that Glow-in-the-dark yarn existed! I thought it would be really fun to experiment with the yarn, and so I really racked my head to find something special to make from it. I am a huge fan of Hayao Miyazaki. In Princess Mononoke, the Kodamas (tree spirits) appear looking ghostly yet cute at the same time. They tilt their heads around and pop it back into place making these rattling noises. I went into my studio and I began making 2 different versions of the Kodamas: a sitting one, and a standing one. If you don’t have Glow-in-the-dark yarn, you can still make them using any sort of yarn and it will still turn out quite spooky cute!
