I’ve revamped my shop again, but I promise it’s the last time! I’m finally satisfied with my patterns and photos. These are all made with high end yarn (no more Bernat Handicrafter Cotton for me, my sore hands couldn’t take it anymore!). You’ll notice the blog is slightly redesigned (I’m going for vintage/classic/baby/early 1900s feel) and…… Continue reading The NEW Amy’s Gurumis (Again)
A quick post today to share photos of past fails this fall. Well, not fails, but amigurumi that I wasn’t satisfied with. I was trying to crochet a Call the Midwife inspired animal (note the blues and burgundies). A bunny (very close to the Prairie Bunny pattern) and an attempted mouse. My cousin informed me…… Continue reading More Call the Midwife Inspired Crochet

Hello all! My apologies for going AWOL for over a week. School got me down but I’m over it now and back to daily blog posts. The winner of my first giveaway, Helen, suggested I design an amigurumi dachshund. This weekend I finished him! I’ll admit I was worried when I first sewed the head to…… Continue reading Amigurumi Dachshund
Old instead of new patterns today! I wanted to showcase two little critters that are made out of acrylic yarns (Vanna’s Choice and Impeccable Loops & Threads) instead of cotton. These patterns are Amy’s Gurumis Teddy Bear and Baby Mouse. I love seeing alternate versions of toy designs, and how the material and embellishments used…… Continue reading Acrylic or Cotton
