I love amigurumi!
And designing amigurumi patterns and giving them to you to make too gives me so much joy, it truly does! I know it might sound a bit cheesy or dramatic even but I honestly find it so rewarding. When you post pictures of
something you've made on my facebook page I get the biggest smile.. when you tell me stories of how you made something and it's become a little one's favorite thing in the world and they can't sleep without it.. oh my goodness, that just fills my heart up!
Or how proud you are that you just made something! That's the best right?! Or how you've made gifts for co-workers and friends and how they treasure their gifts made by you.
I understand all these feelings well. I experience them myself! My parents and my children love the things I make them. My Dad is my biggest fan and he has amigurumi in his work shop and he'll proudly show them to any man who ventures into his work space. My Mom keeps her amigurumi gifts on her dresser and by her phone in a place of honor.. wow, by the phone!! haha If you knew my mother you'd know how special that spot is ;)
My children have brought their amigurumi to school for Show and Tell, proudly telling others that mommy made this! They've slept with them and brought them on school trips and on sleep overs to keep them company and remind them of home.
My youngest son has anxiety so when he was just a bit younger I made him an amigurumi with a zippered pouch where I put in notes of encouragement that he could read when he was in school and feeling lonesome or anxious. He slept with that doll and brought it everywhere. He doesn't need it as much anymore but it remains in his room, close by just in case :)
Simply put, I love amigurumi because amigurumi brings love and joy to others <3

Amigurumi can seem so alive and full kindness...
They can be full of mischief too!
and full of curiosity ...
and they can say, "I Love You" without saying a word!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this post and the photos :)
