Fun with Amigurumi!

Don't you just love those little Amigurumi toys?? Yup, me too! Hence my newest little creations!



Here are two super cute bunnies made with a pattern I bought from CrochetPattern.Etsy.Com and two adorable little aliens made from a pattern I found at Lion Brand Yarn's website.

This heather gray baby safe bunny is part of Dean's first Easter basket. I can't wait to give it to him, he'll love it!


I know you are just in love with this diva Easter bunny that I made for my 5 year old cousin. She has black safety eyes and a darling little smile. I spent hours staring at it knowing it was missing something and then it dawned on me - bows on her ears!! Perfect!


And now for the aliens!! This is my first alien, I followed the pattern EXACTLY and even bought the Vanna's Choice yarn (it was on sale). He came out pretty good!


The second time around, I changed things up a bit and this little intergalactic traveler was born! I can't decide if its a boy or a girl... but either way, its got spunk! I'll be sending this one over to ShutterKate for the EtsyNJ donation basket. Check out the blog for all the details and all the other great donations!


I plan on making another alien for Dean with my rainbow variegated yarn, since he's obsessed with it. Not sure if I have enough, but I can always make his hands and feet red or blue, I have tons of that!

Hooray for Amigurumi!
