Here are a few amigurumi I have made recently.

It was Father's Day here in Oz a few weeks ago and I made my husband this little "Super Dad" doll.

I was inspired by Owly's super hero amigurumi (here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=175399.msg1809537#msg1809537), and made up the pattern as I went along.

This little bird was my first amigurumi. Pattern here: http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/02/19/birds-of-a-feather/. Mine doesn't look as good as the ones in the pattern, I'm not sure why.

I made this flying pig for my daughter a few years ago, before I'd even heard of amigurumi. The pattern is here: http://www.roxycraft.com/Crochet_Aerial_Pig.htm

I made this hippo for my daughter's birthday last month. Here's the pattern: http://www.bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2007/03/12/hungry-hungry-hippo/

My son would love a dachshund and this was as close as I could get! I used Planetjunes wonderful pattern: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7036796

Hope you enjoyed looking! They were fun to make.

These are so cool! My boyfriend says they make him want to learn how to crochet! I love the flying pig the best, and even prefer him without a face.

They're very cute - I love the piggie particularly!

Does your hippo fall forward? I made one, and he keeps on tipping onto his snout. Wondering if it was just me Smiley

Yes, Owly the hippo is nose heavy that's why he's resting on a crystal.  I need to weigh his tail down or something.  I thought it was just me too!  Thanks for your comment.

Oh those are adorable and your bird looks like the one I'm making right now  Cheesy   I just learned how to make amigurumi and it's really not as hard as I first thought it was.  I guess I just needed a couple of friends to show me how to make the cheater's double-ring and then I was good to go!

I LOVE your hippo and dog.  SO cute.  I'm going to try to make these this weekend...sick and all! Woo!

Oh, also... LOVE the flying pig.  I lived in Cincinnati for many years and that was our city's mascot... flying pigs.  Businesses sponsored and/or built their own fiberglass flying pigs of various themes.  It was so creative to see them ... not to mention adorable.  I should make a bunch of flying pigs and use them as ornaments for my Christmas tree  Roll Eyes   I'm so dorky

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!
