I thought it was about time I tried doing these Blogs to document the Amigurumi crochet I'm designing or making. I've never done one of these before so it's all new to me. I'm 30 years old and I started to Crochet in April 2011 after discovering Amigurumi in a book shop. I instantly fell in love with the small, cute, adorable creatures that could be made! I'd made knitted toys in the past so it wasn't too hard to pick up how to crochet Amigurumi. Just recently I decided I wanted to try making my own patterns, I started off by making up some Angry Bird patterns as I wanted to make them for my nephew. This last week I've been working on a UFO pattern, it opens up at the top and inside is a tiny cute Alien! :) I put this pattern up as a free download over on the Ravelry website here.
