My youngest Godchild's birthday is this week and so far I've made something for every birthday. Looking for something quick to make to keep up the tradition, I remembered I had signed up for a craftsy class on making amigurumi animals.
So this week I've been making a crochet teddy bear. I only had enough wool for a white bear so he's an amigurumi polar bear!
The crochet is easy enough with all single (US) or double crochet (UK). I find the difference in the crochet terms a bit headwrecking sometimes. Luckily the instruction videos on craftsy are great and I've all the pieces made at last.
Now onto the fun part- stuffing! I hope she likes him!
Stacey the instructor has a second class designing your own amigurumi monster. I think that might be next, just in time for Halloween!
