Meet Conchita

Now I shall welcome you all to my next little creation in my menagerie of Amigurumi friends.  
This is Conchita. She is a pattern by De Estraperlo.
She was fun to make and I loved watching her come together.  She has little protruding thumbs on her hands which is created by a certain style of stitch you do with the crochet.  It's different as I haven't used it on any of the other animals I have made.
The little shirt design bought in elements of my previous stitching experience as I had to do a lazy daisy pattern and also blanket stitch around the bottom.
She is one of my favourites soo far.


Until next time

Mr & Mrs Bunny

With all the Christmas and New Year excitement I forgot to show you all the next finish I did after my reindeer.  Well it turns out I have finished quite a few since then, so I will start with this delightful pair first.
I completed Mr Bunny first and then Mrs Bunny second.  I am completely thrilled with how they turned out and I am honing my skills with each new finish.

Patterns by lilleliis 

I have a further 3 to show you which I will add over the next few days.  Conchita who is a little shrew type animal, a giraffe and a dinosaur.  I am currently working on a mouse.
Do you think I am addicted now?
Until next time,

A Couple More Attempts

Here are another couple of Amigurumi I have been working on.

I have to admit, it's very addictive and I am enjoying it soo much.
The little reindeer is my favourite soo far, however I am currently working on a larger piece (medium size animal) who is turning out really cute.  I will show you him next time.
Until next time

It's A Bunny!!

My first try at Amigurumi.
It was fun and I have already started on another animal, this time an owl.  I am just practicing at the moment getting used to stitches and tension etc.  When i'm confident I have the hang of it I will move on to bigger and better animals.
