Silly Penguins, the very beginning of my amigurumi obsession

I made these three little penguins back when I just started crocheting. I wasn’t very experienced, for instance, I didn’t weave in my ends, which you can see in the picture.

  But, still, they are very precious to me. They were the first amigurumis that I was really proud of. They were also the start of my addiction (you can tell because I made three and not just one). Before them, I didn’t crochet all that much, but then I had so much fun making them and if I had more different colors of yarn (back then I used my mother’s scraps), I think I would have made even more.

So, that’s when I started using yarn from my mother’s stash to make all kinds of little animals, that was the moment I really got hooked on crochet.

  
  

You’ve got to admit, even though I was just beginning and was doing all kinds of things wrong, they are still pretty darn cute 😉

More Amigurumi Dragons

I really like to crochet dragons. Why you ask? Because you can make all different kinds of them. A bear is a bear, and a bunny is just a bunny, but with creatures like dragons and all types of monsters, you can do whatever you want.

So when I came across this pattern for baby dragons, I immediately got started! If you want to make this pattern too, you can find the link at the bottom of this post.

I am absolutely in love with these cuties.


I very much enjoyed making these, but sewing on all of the spikes certainly took some time!


This very cute pattern was can be found here

Timmy, the blue owl.

 Hello there! I’ve been busy, working on multiple projects at once, studying, etc. But now I have the time to post about this little guy that I made a few weeks ago.

 His name is Timmy, and he is just adorable. This is the first amigurumi owl that I’ve ever made, which is surprising because owls are so popular nowadays, and he even winks!

As always, you can make your own by following the original pattern, Jip the owl. Links are at the bottom of this blog post.

The only thing I did different, is that I used a darker blue yarn and did not add little crosses as details, because I personally thought he looked finished like this (or maybe I’m just lazy). The pattern is not hard and you can make it surprisingly quick! I followed the Dutch pattern, and enjoyed it very much.

Now, enjoy some pictures 😉
