Mushrooms



I had some left-over yarns and unfinished amigurumi parts and did not know what to do with them! But I kept crocheting away and they suddenly made perfect mushrooms.

My Home Photo Studio

Finally my home photo studio tent arrived! 

I had been wanting a "home" version of the professional light box and I was over the moon when I found this, it's a 80x80 cm light box cube, and the size is perfect for my cute amigurumi buddies.

The 3 Ducketeers!


My first little duckie was the yellow one (Of course! Duck has to be yellow!)
I visioned a bird amigurumi while I was making it, but as you can see it turned out to be a duck and it is a little cutie. So I decided to make a second one...then a third one.  They are the 3 little duckies like the 3 musketeers. So I thought I shall call them "The 3 Ducketeers"! Not a bad name at all!

Tools of the Trade




  • Crochet hooks. They come in different sizes for different types of yarns, but for amigurumi 3.5mm – 4.5mm hooks are often used.

  • Scissors, preferably pointy embroidery scissors for easy snips for small corners.

  • Tapestry needles as they have larger eyes then regular sewing ones to accommodate the yarn; preferably steel ones because the plastic ones tend to bend and break easily.

  • Measurement tape.

  • Yarns, preferably cotton yarns as they give a smooth and nice finish to your amigurumi.

  • Accessories such as safety eyes to bring life to your cute amigurumi.

  • Safety pin / stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round.

  • Row Counter to keep count of the number of crochet rows
