Owl - Mr. Murasaki Who doesn’t dream of making their own stuffed toy? Stuffed toy making can be from a few methods, besides sewing, AMIGURUMI (crochet or knit stuff doll) is one of the most popular methods. When I saw Mei Li’s blog (AmiguruMEI) for the first time, my jaw dropped. When I got to know that she designed her own amigurumi doll, I knew I need to know her more and introduce her to you. What we did on our Holy days Pea Shooter Amigurumi Pattern by Erika Devine Yarn: DK very dark green Dark green Koala Bear 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

Sprite Bangles! I've got a fun project today that uses strips from 2 liter bottles to make super awesome bangle bracelets. I used the 3/4" strips that were left over from when I made my Recycled Yarn Holders. You could just cut strips from a 2 liter bottle, if you didn't need another yarn holder (Who am I kidding?! Everyone needs another yarn holder!). Sprite Bangles Supplies needed: 3/4" strips cut from a Sprite (or any other) 2 liter bottle - cut around the bottle, not top to bottom.Small amount of size 3 crochet thread (I used Aunt Lydia's Fashion Crochet Cotton) Size D hook Yarn needle Scissors Use your scissors to make sure that your strip of plastic has smooth edges.
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!
pattern of crocheted Cat with diagram (Amineko) HOME / back To those who are not familiar with Japanese. I drew diagrams next to the worded instructions to make it clearer for everyone to understand. I hope you enjoy it! Birdie Decoration This is my pattern/tutorial for a hanging Birdie Decoration. A completely useless object of course, but very cute all the same. It's an easy project to make, great for using up odds and ends of yarn and can be used in all sorts of ways to bring a little good cheer. This little birdie is made in four pieces :: a round flat circle for the body, a small triangle for the beak and 2 leafy shapes for the wings. There is also a hanging chain to make which you can decorate with flowers if you like, and the option of adding some dangly legs too.
