after crocheting a Santa and then Rudolph, I was hooked on amigurumi (crocheted cute figures) and decided to create one in lieu of a gift tag for all the family gifts, creating a figure related to each person’s interests. There are so many amigurumi patterns on line and I easily found something applicable for each person
[links to the pattern]
the nurse was for my nephew’s girlfriend
the panda was for my sister
the puppy for my mum
the Christmas lights for my sister’s partner
the dodo for my dad
the cactus for one nephew
and the devil for the other nephew
I really enjoyed finding appropriate patterns and creating them all. Each come together in a evening and I enjoyed the variety after several months of diligently crocheting squares for charity blankets.
I’m now crocheting lots of flowers and leaves to create something pretty to hang when I take down the decorations.
