I found a perfect way to use my leftover yarn! I saw an article about amigurumi (crocheted or knitted stuffed creatures) in Kotoliving magazine. It's a new lifestyle magazine full of ideas for handicraft, homing, cooking and everything that's important in life! It's my new favourite magazine! But sorry, only in Finnish! This magazine gives a lot of ideas how to use materials you already have without the need to buy more and more.
In the newest number there was an article about Jennifer Ramirez and her amigurumi and I decided to try to make my own. She has an amazing blog The Sun and the Turtle about her own amigurumi patterns. There are some patterns for free and some you can buy, and the page is in English. I fell in love with The Owl Girl and decided to try and make it with the instructions I saw in Kotoliving magazine for a different amigurumi called The Squirrel Girl. I had to do a bit of improvising, and the pattern for the owl the girl is holding, I just made up myself. I think it became so cute and I got a lot of compliments on it when I published the photo on Facebook. Many thanks to Kotoliving and Jennifer from The Sun and the Turtle for giving me inspiration to make my own amigurumi. You can find The Sun and the Turtle and Kotoliving also on Facebook.
I fell in love with amigurumi so much that after finishing the Owl Girl I had to make an amigurumi I had designed myself. My amigurumi is named Dreamy Rebecca and she's a real winter girl holding her snowboard and enjoying the snow falling from the sky!
