Amigurumi animals - Too Cute!

I saw these cute amigurumi animals online and I just had to learn how to make them! There are a ton of tutorials and patterns out there for free. I am a visual learner so I looked for some videos. I found one (link below) and it seemed pretty simple to follow. I tried to make the ball. This is what came out. LOL!





I think it looks more like an egg or a turd :) I am going to try again. Most amigurumi projects start out with a magic ring. In this tutorial she shows you how to do the basic stitches and also how to make a magic ring. I'll post my next try soon.

The Geek Chic Crafter

Welcome to my blog space! I am computer geek, but I also love to craft. In my spare time I like to shop, sew, make cards, crochet, watch TIVO and work on my blog/website. I might have a drink or to in between. Hence, the Craftini's.  ;)
 

I will be posting some my creations, reviewing patterns and giving tips on problems I have come across. I hope to get some tips from other bloggers too! I plan to post all the info I find on the web about crafting, tech stuff or just anything I find useful. There is so many ideas and fun stuff out there. I just want to share. :)

I hope to get some pictures of my last few projects up soon.
