How To Amigurumi

How To Amigurumi
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

Owlishly: Tutorial I wanted to share how I make the hair for my amigurumi. I always wished that someone had shared this information when I was first getting started, and I searched high and low for a couple of months before deciding on a way that I wanted to make the hair. One of the reasons I like making hair this way is because I like that it doesn't create a massive amount of bulk, and yet doesn't look like the doll is bald either. I'll try to include images of both boy and girl hair, and to make it easier to distinguish between the two I'll use images of my light skinned brown haired boy, and then for the girl I'll use the images of my olive skinned black haired girl. I'm not necessarily the best at writing understandable instructions for everyone, so I'm including a large amount of images so that hopefully those of you that tend to be visual learners can easily understand as well. Things to know and need before you begin:
