Valentine Greetings and Spring Dresses

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I hope you received a little love from somebody today. If not, then let me say how much you mean to me! I appreciate all the love you give me everyday. Each day I wake up and come to my computer and there's always a message of love waiting for me and that means more than I can ever tell you. You've made a difference in my life and I appreciate you! You and me, we're just a couple of love bugs :)
Ok, now we got all mushy we'll move on to the updates, lol.

WoW! I can't believe how fast the year is flying by! Before we know it Spring will have arrived so I'm getting ready for it now with some Spring dresses for my latest
Valentine's Bear!

I've made a couple different dresses in different colors and I have to say the orange and green one below is my absolute favorite!! Of course that one goes to the Bunny for obvious reasons. But the pink and white one above is very sweet and I'm sure any little teddy bear will love it. I think I'll try out some blues too.. we'll see :)

Other updates: The Valentine's Day Bear and Bunny will get a new pattern for regular feet in place of the heart shaped ones they have now. UPDATE! The regular feet pattern has been posted.

I'm working on everything but can't promise pattern release dates as I never know what might happen to cause a delay (I'm a mom!). Of course I make all announcements on my facebook page as they happen so if you haven't stopped by Amigurumi Freely yet then head over now and don't forget to hit the "get notifications" once you hit the like button :)

  1. Love the dresses for the WONDERFUL BUNNY & BEAR. Got all excited when I saw the bear & bunny pattern. You are the BEST to share your FANTASTIC patterns with us. Love Ya!! Martha

    1. Thank you so much Martha, I so appreciate your message :))

      Happy Crocheting!

  2. Hi my name is Mandy. I just want to thank you so much for introducing me to amigurumi. I stumbled upon your YouTube channel by accident a couple weeks ago. My mom taught me the basics of crocheting years ago but I haven't done it in a long time and at first when I saw your videos I didn't think I would be able to do this because I was diagnosed with a rare brain disorder 18 years ago at age 20 but thanks to your amazing videos and easy to follow instructions and patterns I'm close to finishing my first bear and I'm so excited!!! Oh did I mention I'm legally blind? Yup that's right you are such an amazing teacher that you are teaching a visually impaired girl to make amigurumi!!!! I finally feel good again despite having 3 brain surgeries the past few years and getting ready for another one this spring to replace my vp shunt. I've had problems with memory and concentration due to those surgeries but working with you has helped me in ways you can't imagine so thank you so much from me and my husband too. You really are an amazing lady. Can't wait to make one of those pretty dresses for my first bear when it's finished.

    1. Hi Mandy!

      What an absolute thrill for me to read your message, thank you so much! Wow, how amazing you are! What an inspirational story you have. And I've been allowed to be even a tiny bit of it is such an honor for me.

      Thank you for taking the time to write. I'm so happy to know the patterns and videos are helpful to you, that means so much to me. Keep up the great work!

      Many Blessings to you and yours,

      Sharon Ojala

    2. ps Mandy,

      Sending prayers your way as you go to have your vp shunt replaced. You are a trooper now with so many surgeries behind you already but I'm sure that doesn't make the next one easier to endure.

      Love and Prayers

  3. Thank you so much!! No it sure doesn't but I'm a fighter and I know what to expect now so that helps plus I have my amazing husband. I'm so excited about amigurumi now thanks to you that I don't stress about the other stuff. This is so relaxing to me and that works wonders plus now I feel useful again since I'm no longer able to work so I now feel like I'm accomplishing something besides laundry, and cleaning lol. I know I'm rambling but I also have to say my little king charles spaniel molly is absolutely fascinated by your videos and watching mommy crochet (:

  4. Hi Sharon,

    is the pink and white dress the carrot dress pattern? It looks a little different to me ... maybe it's a different pattern? I love it ❤️

    Thanks so much again and again and again ❤️

    1. the bottom part is different. It was the first one I made, a whole lot more stitches went into that one. I scaled it back due to the amount of time that one took.

    2. Oh, I just saw your reply, I've been wondering about this dress for so long, it looks amazing ... maybe we will find a pattern one day, if you ever find the time and mood :) Thanks so much again and again and again ... 😅
