Amigurumi Heaven

I have been teaching myself to crochet recently and during this time i have discovered Amigurumi.

I have found a few definitions but basically it refers to the crochet or knitting of stuffed character toys.

The word itself is derived from two words , ami meaning crochet or knitted and nuigurumi meaning stuffed doll.

Like many i have fallen for these cute little critters, easy to make and such a pleasure to own. Friends and family are already putting in their requests and they are a joy to give as gifts because they have that personal touch and you cant help but smile at them.

As a miniaturist though i am aiming to make some tiny amigurumi and cant wait to see peoples reactions.

Will be posting some pics soon
