So, I'm a high school student, and their is an art show, which can be used as my art final, and its due Tuesday at 4:00pm Central time. And I can't draw, or paint something well, at all. So I thought, "Hey! Why not try something 3D?"

Now my knowledge of crochet is limited, very limited. I checked out a book at the library called "Creepy Cute Crochet" By Christen Haden, and I started making a head base, but it turned out crappy so I took it apart.
Now I need an easy, beginners pattern of anything amigurumi items.
Help is always appreciated and needed.

Thanks!
I'm sure that I might have to make quite of few of the strawberries or acorns to make my teacher satisfied. x)
But they seem quite simple!

If it's for an art class final/ art show, I would stay away from overly cutesy stuff. Simple is good, make a lot of them (strawberries or acorns) and assemble them in an interesting way. Try making different sized ones by using different gauge hooks and yarn. If you really want them to have faces, give them different expressions based on how you assemble them together. like is a really big acorn squishing a tiny one? are the strawberries afraid because something is about to eat them?     Smiley
Good luck with your final!
