amber and lionelWinter time might be the best time where you can really show your love by making blankets, sweaters , scarves and mittens for your loved ones.

It is such a tangible way to show you care  because  it will keep them nice and warm- is beautiful and specially made for them!

That’s why i made a little amigurumi pet for my daughter.

”Amigurumi (編みぐるみ?, lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll ”

                                                                                                                                  …. from wikipedia

Crocheting a little amigurumi pet is one of my favorite things to do. I never use a pattern and this makes it a fun project for me. (could also be because I find it so difficult to read patterns!)

I used African Expressions to make Lionel. The yarn consists of 45% Merino Wool  45% Kid Mohair and 10% Mulberry Silk so it is super soft.

Afterwards I brushed him with a brush to make him extra fluffy!

Maybe I should do a tutorial one day and show you how I do it?

Let me know via our facebook page.

Have a great week and stay warm!

love from Elsbeth

  1. Love little Lionel. !!!!!!! My son draws me pictures of his cartoon figures, and I use the simple teddy pattern to Replicate his creations. He has loads. My Favourite was Stitch (from Lilo+Stitch).
