Ella the Elephant

 

Finally finished!  Let me present my first elephant amigurumi, little Ella.

As I always make several of same dolls to check up on the pattern, right after finishing her made her a boyfriend as well. Think both make nice infant or baby toy. Both are soft and cuddly.

Here are pictures of Ella and her friend

 

 

 

AmigurumiBB - 06

 

AmigurumiBB - 20

Further more, had some left over yarn, so used it to make little fun ball. Suggest everyone to do it. makes great baby gift or cat toy. All you need to do is to make 12 equal size crocheted discs and sew them piece by pice together to create this ball. Before sewing the last one, stuff it in finish sewing up and ball is ready to play with. Here are few pictures.

Crocheted discs in difernt colors (but same yarn weight)

AmigurumiBB - 17And here is the finished ball:

AmigurumiBB - 19Ball measures about 10 cm from side to side

Doing my best to systemize and write down as many of the patterns I have worked on and to publish them here. Wish days are longer in order to finish them sooner. Today published Totoro squad. Fore many, one of the fave ami dolls. This is my version of Totoros.

Totoro - 09Chu, Chibi and Sprite pattern are available under free patterns from today. Hopefully soon will finish and place more patterns.

And at the end proudly present photos of little Karla girl done by Marje and Helen! Thank you very much for sharing the photos with us! Dolls are so adorable 🙂 Still have to encourage Helen to sew on the eyes and lips! 😀

Talking Angela Free Amigurumi Pattern

 

First heard of Angela the cat when my friend told me how it is adored by her daughter Sara, and asked me to make that cat as amigurumi doll for her.

For all of you that don’t know who is that Angela, here is a picture of this adorably cute cat.angela_bg_8bit

Took me a few days, maybe more…almost  a month to research about this Angela cat and to figure out how to do that doll.

Encouraged myself this week to finally make it, and here it is what I came up with. My version of Angela the cat.

Even have the pattern done and ready if you would like to try making one. Have to say, that it is working pattern so some mistakes might be found. I did check it in written, but didn’t make time to make second and third Angela cat to be absolutely sure about this pattern. So keep that in mind if you decide making Angela.

For any details or further instructions please, feel free to ask. I do apologize for any mistakes or misunderstandings caused by my english, but am here to clear those as well 🙂

So here is the pattern! Hope you will enjoy making Angela!

Blue Bear

Recent work I have been busy with is this little plush I named Blue Bear, you might wonder why 😀

As I like working with 100% cotton yarn, so is one made of such. I like my dolls to be easy to maintain, and also like them to be suitable for smaller children (more hygienic and hypoallergenic). That is why I choose cotton.

This teddy is made of 8ply (sport weight) cotton yarn, crocheted with 2 mm size crochet hook. Head and body are stuffed firmly, but arms and legs are stuffed just in the bottom parts of each. Didn’t use pebbles (didn’t have any) but think those would make nice change weighting limbs downwards.

Will have to give it a try with next one, while checking the pattern before publishing it.

In the front, on bear’s belly crocheted this simple half oval pocket.

In the pocket (to show it is pocket) placed this little Purin dog I made some time back, based on the free amigurumi pattern posted by one very creative blogger Amigurumei. Here is the link to this pattern:  http://amigurumei.com/2012/06/10/free-amigurumi-pattern-purin/

And that’s it! My Blue Bear done and ready to play with. Hope you like him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And at the end could not finish without showing you one photo! Little Sara with her Sara Ballerina doll. Ballerina doll was really a jack pot doll for little Sara, but I found out about the secret on how much she likes Angela the Cat from Disney production, so am working on the pattern of this cat as well 🙂

Here is little Sara 🙂

At the moment working on elephant soft doll and Angela the Cat. In few days will come up with new photos.
