My Amigurumi Teddy Bear

What inspires you to create something new?

Dear friends of mine recently had a baby.  And to celebrate, I wanted to give something unique,
something special, something very ‘me’.

I had a whimsical scene in my mind.  This little girl, barely able to walk, pattering through the house in a linen and lace dress.  The beams of morning light dance on the floor all around her.  She is carrying her favorite teddy.

This teddy is not just a toy to her, it is her friend, the one who gives her comfort when mum is beyond her reach.  This teddy is always with her.

She often holds Teddy by just one arm, or leg.  But Teddy doesn’t mind.  After all, she was once just a ball of yarn in a craft box, but now she means so much more.

And now, let me introduce to you the teddy that my whimsical thoughts inspired me to make.

Her crochet pattern is available here and here.

Happy Crocheting!  🙂


Free Crochet Pattern – Easy iPhone Sleeve

Here is a sample of some of the iPhone sleeves I have made, to give you a little inspiration. They were all made using my free pattern.  The pattern is very easy, and you can use any yarn you choose.  An experienced crocheter will whip this up in a very short time.  It would also be a great first crochet project for a beginner.
Why not grab some yarn and give it a try.  🙂

Tiny Amigurumi Cats

I made these as gifts for some friends.  I used a 1.5mm crochet hook and the equivalent sized yarn.  At 2.4cm (or 3cm including tail) these tiny cats were the perfect size for attaching to a mobile/cellphone or key ring.  Although not in the pattern, I also crocheted a length of chain stitches to use as the strap and ran it through the body and secured it at the bottom.

They are so adorably tiny!

Free Crochet Pattern – Tiny Amigurumi Platypus

I made this adorable little fella using 2 strand crochet cotton (14wraps/cm) and 1.5mm hook.  The finished platypus is 3.8cm tall, and super cute!    I think he will probably end up attached to my mobile phone.  😀

The awesome free pattern is available here on Craftster, courtesy of Beavisfreak.  (You may need to register on Craftster to view the pattern, but that only takes a minute 🙂 ).  The platypus in the photo in her pattern is considerably larger than my little guy.  I did not have any trouble following the pattern exactly to make this tiny, scaled down version though.

Happy Crocheting!  🙂
