More Amigurumi still too come :)

We also have a Pocket Pal design in the works patterns almost done :)

Really too tired this evening :P

So here is a definition from Wikipedia of Amigurumi

Amigurumi (編み包み? lit. Knitting a stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. Amigurumi are typically cute animals (such as bears, rabbits, cats, dogs, etc.), but can include inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features. Amigurumi can be knitted, but the vast majority of amigurumi are crocheted.

Amigurumi are usually crocheted out of yarn. The simplest designs are worked in spirals. In contrast to typical Western crochet the rounds are not usually joined. They are also worked with a smaller size needle in proportion to the weight of the yarn in order to create a very tight-looking fabric without any gaps through which the stuffing might escape. Amigurumi are usually worked in sections and then joined (some amigurumi have no limbs whatsoever and the body and head is worked as one piece). The extremities are often stuffed with plastic pellets to give them a life-like weight, while the rest of the body is stuffed with fiber stuffing.

The pervading aesthetic of amigurumi is cuteness. To this end, typical amigurumi animals have an over-sized spherical head on a cylindrical body with undersized extremities.

De-Monsterative Amigurumi

Not really sure where to start. I am a 37 year old Homemaker. Married with 4 kids. I Have been doing Needle Art since I was 5 years old and made toys at that time :) I spent 3 years in Art School only to discover I can be a poor starving artist with out a degree.....

I spent 2 years in my early twenties as a Commercial Furrier... This lead to Designing and making High end Fur animals. My eldest Daughter enjoys and Draws Anima. Recently I've combined my talents to create some of her images in 3 d !! Come to find out it is called Amigurumi..... I will soon post some pictures of these nifty little guys !!
