Amigurumi - Crocheted Cuteness

No-Face Lion

If you are not familiar with Amigurumi allow me to introduce you. Amigurumi are small knitted or crocheted stuffed dolls/animals/inanimate objects, etc. Originating in Japan, amigurumi are cute and fun to make. Last Christmas my husband gave me Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli.  

I'd like to introduce you to some of my new amigurumi friends.

This is Sardonic Turtle, he was the first pattern I completed and I put one of his safety eyes on a little too tight. I that if he had eyebrows one of them would be raised...

This little owl didn't turn out as well as planned, my yarn selection was somewhat limited....

The pattern for the lion at the top of the page calls for a face, but I like him with just the eyes...He seems a little more solemn this way.
