Come See My Monster Made From A Box


Hello Friends.
It's me popping in from my other blog www.SharonOjala.com. I just wanted to show you what I made over the weekend. It's a monster made from a shoebox. If you'd like to see more of him.. (I named him Mojo) click here.

Lots of people don't realize that I have 2 blogs so every once in a while I like to post a link here on Amigurumi To Go. My other blog is actually my original blog where I used to post amigurumi patterns but a couple years ago I decided to start this blog for amigurumi and leave the other one for non-yarny crafts.

PS

Leave a comment if you'd like here or there, I moderate comments to keep the sites spam free so don't worry if your comment doesn't show up right away.

See you there!

The Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly



Meet The Old Lady who swallowed a fly. Why did she swallow a fly? I don't know why!

This Old Lady  is a special  because her body is hollow and can be opened and closed. She can swallow a fly! Or if you prefer, she can hold treasures that aren't bug related in her tummy.
I first introduced her  just before Easter this year 2015. If you missed that post see it here. You can pick up the Fly pattern here.


I also wrote up a pattern for the same lady that has no egg inside. She prefers to walk her pet fly. You can find both patterns below, please read through all the instructions and information I've provided first, this will help you along as smoothly as possible.

I'd love to see your finished Lady so post pictures on my facebook page Amigurumi Freely. There is a print friendly button at the bottom of this pattern. If you would like to leave a donation please do so by using the donation button also located at the bottom of this pattern.

Thank you so much and enjoy!

Monster Makes A Dandelion Wish

monster blowing on a dandelion

Do you remember when you were young and passed by a field of dandelions and saw endless wishes just waiting to be blown into the wind? Wishes to be carried away into the unknown where they come true. I remembered, and today I made wish. I hope you do too!

If you don't have any where you are I went out to my very own backyard and found one for you. Go ahead make some wishes, now blow them into the wind. May all your wishes come true!

A Sincere Thank you For Your Donation


I want to extend my sincerest and most heartfelt thanks to all of you who have left a donation. It means so much and helps more than you'll ever know.

I recently received a message wondering if I had received a donation as they did not get a thank you. My apologies to any of you who may have felt I wasn't thankful. As a practice I do not send emails to paypal email addresses. If you have left your regular email inside your paypal note then I would have sent a thank you.

But because of this recent message I decided to add a personal thank you note right here on blogger for all who donate so it was a very good thing! The note will now be linked in the donation text itself at the bottom of each pattern (as I update each page) and also on the side of this page. You can also read the note here.

Sometimes we do things that may look one way but in actual fact be the opposite of what others may think. The heart speaks a silent language and if you could see inside my heart  you would see a whole lot of gratefulness!
So thanks a million, your donation was received and for it I am very grateful... and for those of you who can't afford to donate, please never feel badly. Donations are for those who can and want to. It's not and never will be an obligation. My patterns are a free gift to you with no strings attached. I want you to always enjoy your visits here!

Many blessings to you,

Working on my next pattern release

The Old Lady is coming along,

Just stopping by to let you know that she's almost ready! I've been a little more busy than usual in my "real" life so pattern writing/testing has been hard to do. But yesterday I was able to get quite a bit of progress made. Tonight I'll work on the solid body so you can make her even if you don't have the big egg to work with. If

Moving or Staying Theft and Drama

free amigurumi pattern round up

Happy Friday everyone!

After last week's disastrous attempt to move this blog I thought I should update you on what I've decided to do and also pass on my pinterest link at the same time because it's loaded with free patterns!

So yes, first of all, I do have a pinterest account where I collect free patterns as I find them. I personally check each pattern before I pin to make sure they are free and they go directly to the pattern (if possible). The patterns are categorized and alphabetical order. I maintain my boards so those of you who gave up on pinterest just like I did due to frustrating pins that lie or go nowhere, I can say 99.9% of my pins are good ones!
I say 99.9% because designers do sometimes move things or decide to charge so if ever you find a pin that has changed or goes to nowhere, just leave a comment on the pin itself and I will fix it asap. It's easier for me if you leave the comment on the pin so I don't have to go searching for it.
You can find the boards here.

And just for the sake of saying so, I pin only free patterns because that is how I promote them on facebook. I have nothing against pay for patterns at all. If you find a pattern you love and it has a charge, by all means buy it! There are SO many

Back Online!

Wahooooooo!!

Oh, my goodness.. that was a scary day  full of  worry. Today I was going to move my blog to another hosting site but somewhere along the line during this move my domain name would no longer work! So my day set aside for  moving became a recovery mission instead.
Just moments ago I was able to fix the problem. So now we're all safe and sound back on blogger. And here we'll stay until I hire some professional movers!

Whew!! I'm sure it was never going to be lost forever but it sure felt like it.

Sorry for the worries on your end too. I won't do it again, I promise.

I'm off for a bike ride. I need a break but I'll be back :)
