21  amigurumi panda & pig & penguin! (with tutorials!) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by mmmfruit on: March 31, 2005 09:39:28 PM
Edit: 2007 - Post cleaned up. ^o^ (Original post, 2005.)

Meet Love Love Panda!  He's from the Japanese pattern book, ami ami gurumi, available on amazon.co.jp.





Also, while learning to create amigurumi for the first time (I have definitely improved haha), I made my own pig and penguin without patterns.  These are NOT from the book mentioned above.  This pattern is Copyright 2005 Sharleen Morco.  All rights reserved.  This pattern is made available for free to Craftster members and Craftster lurkers.  This pattern, and items made from this pattern, are for personal use only.  Please do not sell this pattern or the items created from this pattern.  Thank you.

Cheesy thanks so much! & yes that would definitely be weird if we had the same exact idea! O_o

here's an aerial view photo:


i put my wallet inside. it only holds a few things, but i usually manage to stuff my wallet, keys, and even my phone/chapstick sometimes. it gets a little lumpy, but not so much. i only use it when i need to just bring the essentials, and not my digital camera and other stuff. or i'll use it in addition to my backpack when i'm at school.

WOO the LOVEBUG
This is Gaga's female counterpart, Woo! No one can resist her charm, so fellow gentlemen and ladies, I guarantee that this lovebug will help you woo your object of affection into falling in love with you!

Smiley

again, handstitched with felt & stuffed with poly-fil. both lovebugs measure roughly 6" or so.
i've been having fun making these. Smiley



(the images might look a tad bit funny because the forums are resizing them to 350px width, and they are actually 400px)
