Little Red and Baby Wolf by amiguruMEI

Hey there! I’ve gotten many queries over my Little Red and Baby Wolf amigurumi pattern. My apologies for putting this up a bit late!

Little Red and Baby Wolf was exclusively handpicked to appear in a special edition issue of Simply Crochet magazine. The patterns were included in a cute-as-a-button booklet, packaged along with Simply Crochet Issue 10. Find out more about it here.

I also shared the pattern with a group of crafters in Taoyuan County, Taiwan, who wanted to make the dolls to cheer up a group of cancer patients at a children’s hospital. (Headed by a lovely lady named Dena, the same group previously made over 100 dolls based on my Tuxedo Sam pattern for the children in June 2012. You can read more about it here on Dena’s blog, written in Chinese)

For those who’ve had the pleasure to make their very own Little Red and Baby Wolf, do send over some pictures so we can share them here!

Free Valentine amigurumi pattern: Tammy the tiny pup

Free Valentine amigurumi pattern: Tammy the tiny pup

Ruff!

Have you met tiny Tammy?

The little pup is super shy when it comes to strangers but once she warms up to you, there’s no running away!

Her name is really short for Tamura and to her family members, she is Tamura-chan.

Like most Japanese, she can’t pronounce the “L” letter very well.

Her favourite phrase?

“I ruff you.”

P/S There’s still a few days more to go but anyhow, Happy Valentine’s everyone! Hope you’ll be kind enough to adopt tiny Tammy into your loving home. May your hearts be filled with love and joy on this spectacular day 🙂

Hello folks!

Here’s a character we’d like to share, and it’s Bubblegum the Polar Bear!

His fur is white as snow; his favourite phrase: “I don’t know!”

The bumbly bear is turning five next year. For now, he still believes in Santa Claus (oh dear!)

Instead of waiting till Christmas morning, where you’ll probably be busy with gifts and unwrapping

This here is a pattern of Bubblegum the Polar Bear, a gift to show we truly care!

こんばんは! Please meet Mr Murasaki, who unfortunately, enjoys napping on the job.

The snoozing cutie is especially designed in collaboration with the amazingly-talented Joanne Loh of Craft Passion, who absolutely adores anything remotely owl-like.

And as for you, my friends, we’ve decided to share this super-kawaii amigurumi pattern with you! Just head on over to Craft Passion to find the pattern, detailed step-by-step photos included!

Working with Joanne has been extremely fun, and I look forward to having more collaborations in the future!

Psst: Mr Murasaki, who finds it exhausting to be around people, is a fan of few words. Nevertheless, his favourite phrase is ねむいな (Nemui-na) or I’m so sleepy!

Have you met the Tako-Yaki brothers?

The bear siblings love seafood and they love it raw (sashimi notwithstanding).

They’re great at swimming and love a good challenge when it comes to chasing after funny looking fish.

On a good sunny day, you may just catch them suntanning by the river, or up in the trees snacking on nuts.

...
I smell seafood…

I need a good tan…

P/S amiguruMEI’s original Tako-Yaki patterns can be found in Issue 07 of Simply Crochet Magazine. See if you can spot the cuties in the pictures below:

Ahn-Nyeong Hah-Seh-Yo!

Meet Molang, the kawaii but grumpy fat rabbit from Korea!

While lettuce may be his favourite food, he’s not at all opposed to nibbling a corner or two of onigiri from time to time.

Meimoirs recently teamed up with Samantha Lee of Eatzy Bitzy for another charaben + amigurumi picnic adventure and had loads of fun witnessing the magic of rice being transformed into tubby little bunnies!
