So, it was snowing again a couple of days ago from where I live, and I thought that it would be a great idea to make some use of the snow before they were all gone.  The first thing that came to my mind was taking some white scenery photos with my completed amigurumis!  However, since I have been quite busy with school work, I haven't had the time to actually work on any new projects, and so what I did was...



I made pom poms!  Grin
I think pom poms are really the fastest and easiest way to make amigurumis ~ they're really awesome when you want to make something within a short period of time yet still have them look all cute and nice.  Each of these took me at most only 10min to make.







More photos of my pom poms on my blog and flickr if anyone's interested (see below) Smiley

CHEERS,

I love the little blue birdy.  I want to hug them all though!

The eyes and mouths of those ones were actually felted not photoshopped ~   Tongue

Oh yeah, now that I look back I can see the snow on the felt in some pics. It's still a neat look Smiley

So damn cute! Is the yarn you use that makes them all puffy this way?
(I actually first thought they were sewn with fun fur and wondered what they were doing in the amigurumi board Tongue) Silly me

So cute! I would never think to make amigurumi with pom poms.  Great job and the photo shoot looks like it was a lot of fun to create as well!

I used a mixture of bernat and vanna's choice yarns for these ones just because I have a huge storage of those yarn brands at home, but I'm pretty sure other yarns will do ~ =) The most critical part to it was probably the trimming part though (the pair of scissors that I used were very sharp and precise, which was awesome for trimming down the pom poms and cutting out the felted parts).  Smiley
