Not sure what started me doing amigurumi... probably the same ADHD which also impacts my quilting project list. I know I had a bunch of odd bits of yarn was was looking for projects to use it up.
Made a teddy bear for my granddaughter Emma...
.....and a purple octopus for my granddaughter Chloe!
Photo borrowed from the Lion Brand Yarn site because
I can't locate a photo of the octopus I made but it looked just like this one!
Well, about two days before Christmas, my granddaughter Chloe comes up to me and asks, "Grandma? Do you remember the octopus you made me?"
"Yes, I do!"
"I want you to make me a puppy dog!"
Of course, I agreed and Chloe and I found an amigurumi puppy she liked: a weiner dog!
There was a little negotiation because Chloe wanted to me to make the puppy "now" and Grandma didn't want to go to the the shopping center for the yarn on Friday afternoon before Christmas.
Anyway, Mr. Puppy Dog did get finished and delivered to Miss Chloe...
...who home is sick with a tummy bug.
But Mr. Puppy Dog is taking good care of his Chloe who is on the mend!
So, yes! I make stuff even when I don't have a machine to sew on....
