Recently... I've randomly discovered the art of Amigurumi. I'm not really sure how, I kind of just came across some images on a blog and thought that it's the coolest thing ever!
Amigurimi is a Japanese art, which has been adapted across the world. You can create the cutest little items using simple crochet techniques.
See, I say simple.. but I've never used crochet in my life - it's something I'm desperate to learn as I'd love to make little presents for people's christmas stockings! Maybe my super-star Mum will teach me if I can track down a pattern!
I've collected a few images and blog lines. I think these are truly awesome and I can't wait to give it a go. Let me know what you think, have you given this a try?
I would seriously love one of these little cactus plants for my desk at work. Aren't they just fantastic?!?!?!!? And I wouldn't be able to kill it!
Errmmmmm, these look totally scrummy don't they?!
I'll keep you posted with progress! Hopefully they'll look something similar to one of the above!
