Walter Bird The Ami

by Mary's Amiland, March 2014

This pattern has a strange story. I started off with great enthusiasm, ventured in features I had never tried before, and had so much fun designing and then crocheting it.
When Walter Bird was all done I simply could not stand him, I felt it was horrible and really did not understand how I could have created such an ugly thing.

Several months have gone by and today for some reasons I smiled at his photo and thought to share it on a facebook  group just for fun…. Never I would expect to receive such positive feedbacks that literary made me want to share the pattern for free with all who wanted to crochet Walter Bird and give him some love.

Girl and Boy Bunnies The Amis

by Mary’s Amiland, Novemver 2014

I’m so happy today, I have finished Girl and Boy Bunnies The Amis.
They are based on my first amigurumi pattern I have ever designed, I have had fun trying different colours, faces and ears.

I forced myself to stop here because I was about to start another one in purple but I expect also a rainbow will do for the body…

Wip: Girl Bunny

I'm having fun re-doing my very first designed amigurumi making a female version of Sir Bunny.
She is Girl Bunny, still to sew her up and write down the pattern for the changes I made. I'm so happy with the way she turned out.
Is she not irresistible?

WIP: Silver The Cat

In these days I’m working on Silver the Cat, he has been crocheted following a pattern of mine with some changes. The major change is that legs are crocheted in one piece together with the body.
What makes me laugh is that even following my own pattern I cannot help changing something and make it my way….

Lily Ladybug The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, September 2014

The creation of my first ladybug has been a long journey. I felt very excited at the beginning and I thought it would be very easy to make one. I was so wrong, it has been the most difficult pattern I have ever worked on so far but today I’m so happy I can say: “I made it!”

Dan Bumblebee The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, July 2014

I would have never expected to love an insect as much as I do with Dan, he is my first amigurumi design inspired by this fascinating world. I will look at these beasts with different eyes from now on!

Cindy Turtle The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, June 2014

She is my mandala turtle, a tribute to colours.

Tim Rabbit The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, May 2014

I'm particularly proud of this project as I wanted to create something where only yarn and fibrefill were needed. It took me some time to work out all the details and after all the efforts I'm satisfied with the outcome.

Cam Bear The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, April 2014

I have had a wonderful time designing and then crocheting it, I hope you may enjoy too.

Joe Kitty The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, March 2014

He is so sweet, don't you agree?

Schoolboy Bear The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, February 2014

I love this little boy!

Miss Pig The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, February 2014

She is so elegant in her dress, don't you think?

Cat and Mouse The Amis

by Mary’s Amiland, January 2014

The two amigurumis were thought for my dear friend’s daughter birthday.
They became her best friends.

Let's get started!

I'm very excited, this is the first post of my newly set up blog.
Another adventure has just started and I wish lots of friends would join me in this journey!
