So You Want to Crochet AmigurumiArtisan Crafts Week
Creating something with your own hands, watching the fruits of your labor blossom... The idea of crafting something has always appealed to me. I figured I could draw - but quickly discovered that took some talent I don't possess (at least, as of yet). The DeviantArt community proved a fountain of inspiration and I quickly stumbled upon a craft that captured my attention: crocheted amigurumi.
That was my first thought, too. According to Craftsy it means a "knit/crocheted stuffed toy". That's right, it's either a knitted - resulting in a more stretchy product - OR a crocheted toy - the yarn being of a denser, thicker fabric. Amigurumi can be made into pretty much anything: animals, people or inanimate objects.
