If you're looking for a fun and engaging craft project, amigurumi might be just what you need. Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting small, stuffed yarn toys, and it's becoming increasingly popular around the world. In Funny Amigurumi, Emilie Penou teaches novice and experienced crocheters amigurumi. Inside are 16 amigurumi projects, such as a frog princess, a witchy owl, an adorable hedgehog, and more. With easy-to-follow instructions, you will be an amigurumi master in no time.
I am new to crocheting, but it has quickly become one of my favorite crafts.Currently, I am sticking to blankets, small home decor items, and a few accessories. I have seen amigurumi before, and I've always been a little nervous about making the perfect stuffed animal.
Although all the creatures in the book are adorable, I started with Ms. Mini Chicken and Cape. Emilie’s step-by-step instructions made it easy to get the hang of crocheting the mini chicken and cape. The mini chicken is cute and can be personalized with a different initial on the front of the chicken’s cape.
The animals in this book have a lot of personality, with quirky expressions and fun accessories like hats and scarves. They're sure to bring a smile to your face as you create them, and they make great gifts for kids and adults alike.
Another great thing about amigurumi is that it's a relatively low-cost hobby. You don't need a lot of supplies to get started, and once you've mastered the basics, you can experiment with different yarns and colors to create your own unique designs. Plus, crocheting can be a relaxing and meditative activity, making it a great way to unwind after a long day.
All of the creatures featured in Funny Amigurumi are 4.5”-tall, making them convenient for fun crafting on the go. With 16 projects, the amigurumi creatures are collectible and make perfect gifts for loved ones.
