I heard friends and readers asking me how to do amigurumi, including patterns, materials, tools & tips etc…. you will find all the answers in this post: How-To Amigurumi!!! Frankly speaking, just like all other crafts, to make a decent looking amigurumi is not easy but it is not hard as you thought too. You need skill, skill comes from knowledge and practice…. and to success in crafting, you need patience and the “never-give-up” attitude – do it again and again until you are satisfied with the result. Amigurumi (編みぐるみ?, lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. {CLICK HERE to get the introduction on How-To Amigurumi.} Pages: 1 2 Print / Download PDF

Lovely Marie - KatiDCreations The idea for this beautiful doll came to me quite unexpectedly during the middle of a conversation while visiting with my mom. I seriously interrupted myself and started rambling on about the doll idea that just came to me.
