Happy International Amigurumi Day!
For the first time in history, amigurumi has a special day all to itself and we’re delighted to join in on the celebration.
Do you remember making your first ever amigurumi? Did it feel magical, that with just a hook and yarn, that you could create almost anything — a bear, a cat, a puppy, or simply rainbows, unicorns and the cutest of dolls?
Take a moment to think about how making amigurumi has changed your life.
And if you’re looking for a new project to kickstart an all-new amigurumi adventure, we have the sweet, squishy one waiting for you.
Please meet Strawberry-san, possibly the sweetest berry girl you’ll ever chance upon in this lifetime.
We absolutely enjoyed working with the super-squishy Yarnart Jeans Plus yarn for this project, plus we added a little sparkle with Kartopu Melange Wool Luxe.
To make your Strawberry-san stand out, it is of the utmost importance to choose the palest of pinks and pairing it with the prettiest of mint/baby blue yarn for the leaves. This colour combination will give it the sweetest finishing touch.
Tag us at #strawberrygirl #hobium #amigurumei #hobiumyarns when you’re done with making one!
