Spotlight On: Amigurumi
|Share the love...||
We all know what crochet is, but do you know Amigurumi? Heck, I can’t even pronounce that word without sounding like there are gumballs stuffed in my mouth. Not to mention having to spell it out in my head every time I type it.
First things first, amigurumi the word; comes from a combination of 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. (Thank you Wikipedia!)
What I know is that they are cute, creative and must take skill to make.
She nailed his look, in yarn no less!
