Best present!

For Mother's Day my husband bought me the best present - two amigurumi crochet books:
These are the cutest books with the cutest ideas ever! I think I squealed out loud at some of the pictures and couldn't WAIT to make them!!
I've made 4 already from the books and I wanted to share them with you!

I fell in love with the bear and wanted to make it right away for me!
I used some left over "mermaid" colored yarn I had from another project.
He fits perfectly in my purse and loves going on adventures.

I then let my kids pick out something they wanted me to make them.
My son picked this duck with a bear hat and named him Gunther.

My daughter wanted me to make her everything in the books!!!
She finally settled on this duck and named her Sophia.
She has also requested that I make a bear and kitty hat for her!!!

Finally I made this polar bear!
I love that the patterns come with hats for the animals!
This pom pom hat made this polar bear EXTRA Cute!!

I can't wait to make more of them!!
My mom gave me a gift certificate for mother's day and I got 17 new yarn colors!!!
What amigurumi have you made before?
Do you have a favorite from these books?
Or do you have a suggestion for another book I need to check out?


  1. These are just too stinking cute! I love the duck with the red hat that reminds me of a tomato LOL


  2. I have these books and am waiting to unpack them (they're still in a crate from my trans-atlantic move)I'm half way through the patterns and finding them v. simple - love yours!

  3. Sooo cuute, all of them! I have to buy those books too! Thank you so much for sharing!
