Not too long ago I came across a book in Barnes and Noble called Amigurumi World, Seriously Cute Crochet  by Anna Paula Rimoli.   It intrigued me because I have two boys who love to play with stuffed animals.  My daughter doesn't so much, but they do, and they have a great time using their imagination.

After looking the book over I decided I needed to see if Anna Paula had a website, research for free patterns online, and see if I could check her book out at the library.   Well, she does have a website,,  I did find some free patterns, and I was able to check her book out at the library.

Since then, I have made many amigurumis.  Many of them we gave away as gifts.  Here are two that my boys still have.

They have been loved on a lot.  The ducky especially looks a little frazzled.  :0)  They really are not very difficult to make, and most of them I was able to make in a couple of hours in the evening.

Here are a few links that might help you out if you would like to try your hand at Amigurumi making.

P.S.  I changed the look of my blog a little, hoping to make it a little easier to read.  Let me know what you think...........
