Amigurumi Yoshi!

Nintendo has recently released a super cute game called "Yoshi's Wooly World"  Much like Kirby's Epic yarn, this game was produced in conjunction with the Good-Feel game developers.  The innovative look   and feel of Yoshi's wooly world is the characters and level design.  Yoshi is a cute amigurumi/knit character and the levels are made up of yarn knit or crocheted items!

Ever since I heard about this game, I have been obsessed with making my own little yarn Yoshi. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of patterns available that match the aesthetic of the little yarn Yoshi in this game.  Nintendo has released a knitted Amiibo Yoshi but I still wanted to design one on my own!  Pattern after the jump!

Peanuts Crochet!

I love checking out new craft books and I stumbled upon a craft kit at Chapters the other day!  You can also find this kit online if you don't have a Chapters nearby.

This crochet kit includes everything you need to make 3 projects - basically, you will have enough yarn to make Snoopy, Woodstock, and Charlie Brown.

What type of yarn to use for Amigurumi?

Crocheting amigurumi dolls is fun and it's always so satisfying to see the end result of your hard work!  I've been playing around with different yarn weights and hook sizes to see how my dolls will turn out in terms of size and aesthetic.

Needle Felting

I'm always on the lookout for new types of crafts.  This past summer, I was perusing a farmer's market in Kelowna when I stumbled upon an artist who was selling cute needle felted ornaments.  I bought a small penguin and was instantly in love.  It was so cute - I knew I had to learn how to do this type of craft.

Little felties

Felt Babushka

I have been playing around with different types of crafts and lately, I've been making some little felties!  I got these patterns from the book "Felties - How to Make 18 Cute and Fuzzy Friends" by Nelly Pailloux.
