I looked on page 1 of the thread but couldn't find the gallery link.  Had to do a search to locate it.  I was hoping to see some amigurumi-goodness posted already.  I guess I have to wait a little longer.  Mine will be going out next week.

I'm pretty sure mine are ready, I'm just staring at them and wondering if I should or should not add some extra details.

My amigurumi is on it's way to Longtimegeek.  I wasn't sure if I could make the post office today.  We had some wet snow today.  I wasn't concerned about the roads, they weren't bad. It's getting out of the car with my walker (, I'm recovering from a fractured pelvis,) that had me a little uneasy, but I made without any difficulty.  I'm off to PM Longtimegeek and Missmoppet with the DC no..

I got my package from mamarose, and inside was.....

The cutest little elephant baby -- I have decided she is named Effie.

I went for a picture that highlighted how sweet she is - but is makes her look smaller than she really is (hmmm I thought the camera added pounds :) ).  She is about 5 1/2 inches tall and about 6 inches wide at the ears (she is clearly an African Elephant)



Thanks so much mamarose, she is adorable.  She even got the 'aww, that's cute' seal of spousal approval

Such cute stuff!  I cannot believe I forgot to bookmark this thread.  Fixed that!  :D

I received this awesome ami from Longtimegeek, yesterday.  I now present
Socrates (Socks) the cat.  Isn't he amazing?



Also, I am posting this picture of Effie the elephant that I sent to Longtimegeek, in her native environment (jungle).  The colors show up a little better here.



Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: longtimegeek on February 08, 2009 11:17:49 AM
Glad he arrived safely - he seems comfortable enough.  My husband got tired of watching me pose him in lots of silly ways.  Your photo of Effie is much better than mine -- thanks.

Love the amigurumis everyone!  A great start to the gallery.

Question though:  Inked79 you must got the gallery confused, you recieved that in December?  Do you mean you received you ami package in Jan.  or is that from another swap in Dec.?


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: mamarose22 on February 12, 2009 09:35:46 AM
It seems that Inked79 and Bonzablue are partnered in this amigurumi swap, however the pictures she posted may have been something she received in another swap in December and confused it with this ami swap.  Please clarify.


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: inked79 on February 16, 2009 11:15:44 PM
Wow im lame.....See what working 55 hours a weeks get you. A brain that doesnt think right.  These are the things I got in this swap.  I just got the dates confused.

LillaTusen sent me a pm letting me know she recieved her package this week.  She should be posting in the gallery soon.  So that one ami we can see.  Im exicited to see what ami cute-ness her partner made her.  But, most of us still havent sent out yet.

the polar bear looks super soft and that bat is just too cute.  great addition to our gallery!


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bubblegum_phoenix on February 19, 2009 05:23:32 AM
that bat is awesome! is the polar bear made from fuzzy wool or have I popped too many painkillers?


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: smashergrl on February 19, 2009 05:36:04 AM
they are all so cute!!!   I can't wait to see more


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: mamarose22 on February 19, 2009 07:41:56 AM
That fuzzy polar bear is so cute.  Is that felt on the bottom of his paws? 


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: spotnik on February 19, 2009 06:13:00 PM
The polar bear is made of white boucle yarn.  And his paws are made of the same gray yarn as the bat, and then the claws are embroidered.

The yarn I sent is my favorite for making amigurumi - I can hardly wait to see what LillaTusen makes from it!   :D


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bonzablue on February 20, 2009 08:14:48 AM

Awe, that elephant is cute. :D  And anice collection of neat buttons too!


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: mamarose22 on February 20, 2009 01:19:03 PM
It seems that a lot of people like elephants.  I also made an elephant for Longtimegeek from a pattern I found on the internet.  I had suggested she name her Ellie but she decided on Effie instead.  Otherwise there would have been some confusion when they called Ellie to come in for dinner.


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: littlefawnpug on February 20, 2009 01:35:26 PM
I also made an elephant for Longtimegeek from a pattern I found on the internet. 

I know, I think thats neat how theres already been 2 elephants posted already. ;D  I wonder if anyone else made an animal like the one I made for my partner....


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: mamarose22 on February 20, 2009 02:05:38 PM
I don't think I've seen your elephant on the net.  You probably got the pattern from a book.  I think elephants, cats and owls, are animals that people like to collect.  I happen to like cats.  Elephants, especially with their trunk pointed slightly upward are supposed to bring luck.


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bubblegum_phoenix on February 20, 2009 04:58:12 PM
that elephant is awesome! Hope my partners stuff arrives soon, shes got midyears and I cant bet she needs cheering up!


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: lilyla19 on February 23, 2009 12:35:42 AM
A little teaser pic for my partner!



I hope she likes it. I really put quite a lot of effort, and try out a new technique.
 ;D


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bubblegum_phoenix on February 23, 2009 05:07:09 AM
ohhhh, what is it? looks fluffy!  :P

I think both elephants are adorable.

 ;D

What new technique can you use when making an amigurumi?  Felting?  I'm curious.


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bubblegum_phoenix on February 23, 2009 02:16:13 PM
or it could be a new stitch... hmmmm


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: lilyla19 on February 23, 2009 05:12:39 PM
it's just a technique used to create the very fluffiness
 ;D


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: smashergrl on February 23, 2009 07:09:17 PM
I had such a craptastic day, and I came home to find a sweet ami in my mailbox!!

I have to think of a good name for him, he brought me a lot of happiness today!  There were some sweet little mini clothespins with felt dolphins and whales, some origami paper to make sea creatures & sea creature obento picks.   Thank you so very much mylikes!

Pics are here:

All of the contents in the envelop....
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=223871)
*chocolate is a bit squashed, and is now in my fridge*
And, I LOVE the wool. It's so soft. I need to figure out what to make with this special yarn.

Closed up on all amis.

Kitty the Bee!
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=223872)

So cute!

(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=223873)
This Pooh bear rocks!!! Love love him so much. He's really adorable.

(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=223874)
I'm not too sure which character is this suppose to be. But it's blue... and cute!

(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=223875)
This reminds me of Mario's power-up stars. I can never figure out how to make stars myself, even there is a pattern.
 ;D

Post by: littlefawnpug on February 25, 2009 04:38:58 AM
Cute cute!  I love the big eyes on the kitty bee.   :D  And the blue thing I believe is one of those glass containers that you would use in biology class.  Cant think of their name though.


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: thepainfultruth on February 25, 2009 05:15:26 AM
I think its called a beaker.


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery

Yeah, thats what its called!  Apparently you can tell I wasnt good at biology.   ;D


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: mamarose22 on February 25, 2009 08:21:43 AM
Poo Bear and Kitty Bee are so cute.


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bubblegum_phoenix on February 25, 2009 10:19:07 AM
Ohh sorry, did I forget to label it all? Jeez Im a dork sometimes  ::)
Yea, its a beaker You mentioned youd broken some in science so I thought itd be funny to make one that you couldnt break  :D
I had originally planned to make a bigger Pooh Bear, just the pattern got reaaaalllly confusing so I threw a tanty and tried something else  :D
So the little Pooh Bear I made up, and Hello Kitty (you like Sanrio) is from Ravelry
The wool incase anyone is wondering is a mohair and possum blend  ;D not long after I brought a ball to send I brought myself some to make socks with  :D after its washed (the finished product) the mohair and wool aparantly felt a little and the possum fur comes to the top so its even softer!!
The Star was fun, its ment to be good luck for your midyears (you wish upon a star!)
and the chocolate is pineapple lumps  ;) very yummy - my other half puts them in the freezer and eats them frozen. They are really yummy so I hope you enjoy
There should have also been a NZ themed pen and some big black button eyes (like Hello Kittys) or did customs pinch them?


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: lilyla19 on February 25, 2009 05:31:07 PM
oh I got the eyes and the pens too. ;D ;D

*pokes her own beaker plushie*

I can't wait to try the chocolate.

Thank you so much bubblegum_phoenix!


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bubblegum_phoenix on February 25, 2009 07:45:59 PM
phew, I never quite know what customs will remove. They held a package I was recieving for a week once!! Because I was getting knitting needles!! lol
Im glad you like (ps, try socks with the wool, I doubt you need a scarf or mittens but socks are always good  ;) )


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: Laural on February 26, 2009 01:23:50 PM
Everything is so cool!

I thought that the beaker was a bottle of nail polish myself. But when you said it was a beaker it brought back fond memories of the day our out of touch with reality chemistry teacher "supervised" an experiment that caused a 1500 ml beaker to explode and a trip to the hospital for some students. Good times, gooood times.


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: spotnik on February 26, 2009 08:09:37 PM
I received today from LillaTusen!  And I have to say:  SQUEEEEE!

HEDGEHOGS!!!!





As you can see, there was other good stuff too - a postcard from Sundsvall, Sweden, some gorgeous yarn, a cute embroidered hedgie, and a little bag of whimsies. 

Thank you SO much LillaTusen!!!  I love the hedgehogs (and everything, really), and I can hardly wait to try out the yarn.  You are the best swap partner I could have asked for!!   ;D


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bubblegum_phoenix on February 26, 2009 08:48:35 PM
I recieved!!!!!!!
and I LOVE it!!
its so cute, and its fluffy and awwwwwww!!
lol, oh right, you lot possibly want pics.
Hmmm, spose I can do that. Just gotta upload em  :D
THANKYOU!!


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: bubblegum_phoenix on February 26, 2009 09:18:34 PM
Ok, they are now uploaded  :D
I recieved today, been feeling sick since Monday so was awesome way to make me feel better  :D


this is what I saw when I opened the box


all this was in the white package! the ice cream and whale are chocolate (my other half kept asking if the whale one tasted like whale, Im relieved to say it doesnt. Or if it does, Im going after some whales!!) Theres two lots of yarn, ones for doiley making and im not sure what the other (the blue one) is for, but it feels the same?
Im pretty sure the purple thing is soap  :D plus I got two bell key chains and a kitty bell cell phone dangle and the wee black things are toy eyes  ;D YAY


in the bottom of the box were these awesome postcards! it always amazes me the things other countries take for granted! like here in NZ, I barely notice the bush (rainforest) but when I send postcards people rave! and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Elephant and Baby one :D

now for my ami...

tadaaa! a sleepy Ram Lamb  :D which I adore! I squealed when I pulled it out (my SO just rolled his eyes and said "great, another sheep" hes actually fluffy! did you brush him? and the wee horns! hes just so cute


thankyou! from a sick Bubblegum_Phoenix (so no picking on the pic of me  ;) )


Title: Re: ~Amigurumi~ Gallery
Post by: lilyla19 on February 27, 2009 04:31:43 AM
Glad you like them all!
Can't label anything because I was mailing it as a small packet.

 ;)

The purple thing is Cold Processed Soap, and is lavender scented from Lavender Essential Oil, made by me. It's only my second batch. I've only try with some scratches pieces. I'd love comments though. :P


The tiny lot of yarn is actually a Japanese yarn I found at 100yen store.
 ;D But the big blue lot is Thai yarn. Haven't get a chance to feel it myself, I didn't want to unwrap it.

Actually, I nearly forgot to include the postcards. I have to slowly peel out the seal, try to open the box, and seems like I couldn't pull it open, so I just slip them through the sides, good that they're not bend.

*nods* I did brush him a whole mighty load. It's the first time I do the brushing, at first I was so afraid that he'll fall apart and then I'll have to redo him again.
Now, I'm inlove with this yarn and the brush!

I just notice on my pic that he's still a little stain from my fabric marker from trying to embroider his face. Just try to erase it with a little drop of water. Don't wet him :)

 :)   I'm glad you like them!  I had also planned on creating a shell with one of those pearls, but did not have time.  :P   The hair!  O boy   :D    The big mermaid definitely looked different in my head.  I had no idea that her hair was going to be so...    80's.

the fun fur is an awesome idea for hair! really sucks to stitch with though!

Agreed.  It also makes the cutest fluffy animals.  But, man is it hard to work with! 

Every time I choose to work with the fun fur/eyelash yarn, I suffer from amnesia because I always forget what a pain it can be to work with.  BTW, the large mermaid's hair took 3 balls of the stuff.  It's all chains and slip stitches.

Yay I received my package from Junior_Mint! I love it so much :D



It's a cute kitty (going in my collection) and the CUTEST pear with a happy little face! Aww! I love his eyes too.

I also got a pretty pink pouch with stitch markers and eyes, although I'm not sure how the eyes work...

Wheee thankyou Junior_Mint! It's a lovely package :) And I can't wait for you to get mine :D

Here's the ami that I sent Sovietweed. She wanted a Totoro with a Gryffindor scarf. He's pretty big, about the size of a football. The scarf is knit on size 1 needles with sock yarn that I dyed myself.

lol, hes awesome! look at all those eyes!

I actually tried crocheting circles for the suction cups, but had an idea about using eyes instead.  I ended up doing the eyes because it gave it a more unique look.   ;D

Organizers note:


Unfortunately we have not one but two more flakers in this swap. 

Before I post in the angel forum I was wondering if anyone of you all wanted to be an angel. 

You will not be receiving a package, only making one for the following ladies. 

Its unfortunate that they were flaked one because this was an easy swap, and they put alot of time & effort into their swap partners packages.

If you would like to be an angel for either of these ladies please pm letting  me know.   

Both swappers in located in the USA.  And neither of them have any allergies listed.
-koala scout 
-Laural

Thanks for all the offers to be angels.  I have found them.

Here is a close up of the uber cute Chococat teapot I got from rosiegarden.  This pattern was from scratch and I think it's soooo cute!



I also got an awesome handmade journal (with pics of amigurumis on the front) and a teeny penguin.  Unfortunately my cat claimed the penguin as her own already and hid it!  :D  Aw well, thanks again!!
