Babies and Ellies

My friend Mandy is about to be a Granny!
Like me, she adores Elephants
and she lives in Nellie!
So, of course this is what I made.
If baby is a girl, it belongs to her.
Otherwise, Mandy can keep this one!

It’s a BOY!

I’m gonna make another one in blue!!!!


Amigurumi: Free Pattern for Iggle Piggle

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

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. Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features, as is typical in Japanese culture.

I discovered Amigurumi, and totally fell in love! After making 4 from free patterns, I started designing my own.  hope you enjoy them.

  My “own” Iggle Piggle

Amigurumi is lots of fun and easy to do!
