The last few weeks, a friend and i have been kind of obsessed with Crochet, and we downloaded a really cute book called 'Creepy Cute Crochet', where they teach you how to make little stuffed characters, like vampires, zombies, cthulhu, etc...and a friend has his birthday tomorrow, so i make this Ninja for him, a little personalized.

Btw, when i was reading about Amigurumi, some concepts called my atention (japanesse stuff always do, jeje).
Usually, the believes are bound to friendship, company, and even good luck charms.

''Beyond the decorative use or toy, the amigurumi objective is to feed the inner child we all have inside. According to the believe, every amigurumi has a 'soul', becoming it en a companion and confident of his owner for life , giving him protection and comfort, in moments of stress and sadness.''


Las ultimas semanas una amiga y yo hemos estado un toque obsesionadas con crochet, y descargamos un libro hermoso llamado 'Creepy Cute Crochet', donde enseñan a hacer pequeños muñecos de personajes como vampiros, zombies, cthulhu, etc...y un amigo mio cumple años mañana, asi que le hice este Ninja un poco personalizado.

Por cierto...a este tipo de muñecos en crochet se les llama Amigurumi, y el termino viene de Japon, y usualmente la creencia esta ligada a la amistad, compañia, y hasta pueden llegar a considerarse amuletos.

''Más allá de su uso como figurita decorativa o juguete, el objetivo que persiguen los amigurumis es alimentar el espíritu de niño que todos llevamos dentro. Según la tradición cada amigurumi posee un "alma" que lo convierte en el compañero y confidente de por vida de su dueño, proporcionándole protección y consuelo en los momentos de estrés y tristeza.''

A brilliant ninja and I love his cross expression.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
