School has started, but summer is not officially over until after Labor Day in my mind. I had a wonderful summer filled with traveling, hanging out with friends, reading, napping, crafting, and of course, crocheting! I also had to change over to a new computer after my old one fried (RIP!), so it has taken me a while to figure out how to transfer pictures. My goal for this past summer was to make 50 amigurumi to sell at the craft show I do in October. I am going to be short of this goal by next weekend, however, I feel like this was one of the most relaxing and fun summers I have ever had, so I will not fret about not making the perfect number of amis! Without further ado, I present to you the next in the series of the many amis I made this summer:
Here is a baby chicken I made. I love how his hair sticks up!
Next is Pete. He is a cutie pie blue bear.
Then I have Melvin, the elephant:
Then there is this lovely owl. She has a sweet heart on her tummy to remind you she loves you!
This giraffe has a really awesome mohawk:
Then I made a really large Dalek, to honor the upcoming Dr. Who Season!!!
The next one is another minion, about 8 inches tall.
My cousin (from Tennessee) wanted a UTK minion for a friend of hers. I enjoyed this one especially, since UT is my alma mater!
After I saw the newest Avengers Movie, I was inspired to make a Hulk! I hope I can get him some buddies pretty soon.
I love dinosaurs! So, I made Tyrone, the Tyrannosaurus to celebrate that love!
Then I made a Momma and Baby Penguin
Then I wanted to make a really fat and short panda.
I added a pink hippo to the collection.
Because of the media stir around Cecil the Lion in Africa, I made a lion and named him Cecil.
I made a super cute monkey.
A few years ago, I bought some patterns from Lucy Ravenscar, and these are some of them:
As you can probably guess, I am a huge Star Wars fan. I plan to make some of the others, but I would want them to have a light saber, so I am still working out how that will happen…
Finally, I also got really into watching the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited cartoons on netflix, so I am starting on making some of them. The first is a tiny Batman. He stands about 3″ tall, so much tiny and adorable! He is already sold as an addition to my dear friends classroom!
As you can see, I have been a busy beaver this summer, but not so busy with this that I did not take sufficient time to enjoy being off and stop to smell the so-called roses. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying my creations. You can bring them home with you via my etsy shop.
