My First Amigurumi
What is amigurumi actually? Wikipedia define as the jappanese 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.
Dian teach me how to make amigurumi for the first time. She also sharing a simple pattern to construct an amigurumi with me. So i can make my own amigurumi by crocheting. Eventhough i never knitting amigurumi yet, but i think its more easier crocheting amigurumi than knitting (How i can compare between crocheting and knitting amigurumi if i never done one them, hhhmmm i must learn knitting amigurumi later). One of my reason, its more easier to shape any creature by crocheting than knitting.
All above is my first amigurumi. I take a picture a month ago and i didn't put any caracter yet. But now they have eyes, nose, and mouth (sory, but i forgot to take a picture). One of them has sold (below)
