World Amigurumi Exhibition

Hello dear friends!

By now you probably know, whenever I go quiet I am up to some new and completely crazy project or, as in this case, making dolls for exhibition.

In the second week of October I was invited to participate to World Amigurumi Exhibition that would take place at:

Resobox Gallery

Resobox Gallery

Clicking on the photo or the Resobox title you’ll  go directly to official Resobox page where you will find all the details about exhibition, as well as names of amigurumi artists from around the world that are participating. From that page you can go and visit each artist page and check those you haven’t heard about yet. There are some pretty amazing amigurumi artists you don’t want to miss. Specially the Japanese ones!

I will also add the Facebook and Twitter pages for all of you that wish to stay informed on Resobox, amigurumi, artists and more for the next few months.

Receiving invitation to join the exhibition I found very flattering but also intimidated it was not place for me. I don’t find myself an artist. I simply love to crochet. to make dolls, toys…. Was double thinking about the whole idea. I hardly have any dolls at home. Well, I do but those are my precious ones and are not to be transported, exhibited and sold by any chance!

Most of the dolls I make while designing new patterns end up in the hands of my nieces, local children or anyone else who asks for them. And I like creating more than repeating same pattern and making same doll over and over. I think by now you all know that. I like to challenge myself and go beyond the limits one would say there are for simple crocheted dolls or toys. But that is what I love and what I am passionate about. Discovering, learning, creating…

After some thinking and thinking and more thinking decided to give it go. Accepted invitation to participate and decided to send 10-20 dolls. Even though most of my patterns are fast and easy, I knew I wouldn’t made it in time if I would try making different  toys and dolls. BB dolls and BB boys would have been great choice, but my favorite of these little ones are Fairies. That was my choice! Making 10 to 20 little fairies and send them to exhibition.First 10 dolls I made pretty fast. Last 10 took me 15 days to finish. I really enjoyed making these little ones. Feel sad I had to pack them and send them to New York!

I took many photos of the last 10 fairies. Made this short slideshow to show you the little darlings.

Now that Fairies are flying to New York, we can continue with Christmas patterns while there is still time! I already started to work on Elves and if all goes as planned will show you the dolls and share pattern next week.

Stay informed exploring the Rosebox links and all the artists and their works that are participating at World Amigurumi Exhibition!

Till the next week, wishing you all wonderful time.

Happy dolls greeting

Dear friends from all over the world,

AmigurumiBB blog is one year old!!! 😀

Using chance to thank every single one of you!

Without you all this would have no meaning.

Your presence, your comments and cooperation through messages here or through your private mails, are giving me force to continue with what I do and keep on going, designing new patterns we all can share.

Photos you send me, questions you ask, mistakes you correct in my patterns….all that brings smile on my face and warms my heart.

For all these reasons, I thank you with all my heart. Every pattern I made was made for you and hope there will be many more to share in the future.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Would like to close this year, while we still have time to read. Don’t wish this year to end without thanking each and every single one of you who has been my dear friend, trusted me, being curious or just stopped by for short while, looking for inspiration (and happy if one found here) but most of all thank you  for being so wonderful inspiration  in my work and great support all along.

Today’s post is about you who worked hard and tried on some of my patterns. Many of the photos have been sent to me, others have collected all over the internet. I am sorry if I have missed some of you and your works here. Just e-mail them to me on and will add them to all these wonderful works that should be seen and specially rewarded by own post!

So thank you all for being so wonderful and kind, giving me support through the past half year and being my inspiration. Hope next year will be as much fun with many new projects and patterns to share.

Wishing you all Merry Christmas and Blessed 2014!

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:

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.

See you soon! 😉
