Amigurumi Heart Critters

Just in time for Valentine's Day! When I saw this pattern on Fave Crafts here, I knew they'd be a fun (and fat free) gift for the girls' teachers. What got me was that hair! I changed up the eyes and added a little mouth, too and think they are pretty dang cute.




I made this one first and followed the pattern for the legs, but after I was done, I decided they looked a little too much like chicken legs with those extra stitches on the top two rounds. It's cute, but I didn't do those rounds on the second one and I do like it much better.
I wasn't going to have enough yarn to do the second one in the same colors and when I found the skein of yarn with the bright colors, I could picture the hair being a little more wild and crazy. I love how it came out.

I hope the teachers like them.

I don't know if I've mentioned Fave Crafts before. I discovered it via one of my thrifty type blogs and I signed up to get the newsletters. I get one a day and once a week I get one for crochet. They also offer free e-books full of craft ideas. I'm tickled to have discovered the site (but now I have way more ideas  than I can ever hope to create in this lifetime~LOL).

Hope you have had a happy Wednesday! Thanks so much for stopping by. It sure felt good to crochet again. *Ü*
