Lately, I've been itching to create new things. I can't seem to make myself crochet/ sew my old standards. I love them -- the cupcakes, and cacti, and owls, and such -- but at the moment I just feel the need to make something surprising and unexpected. Or at least to refresh and redesign my usual softie repertoire.
These little guys are pretty novel. I've never made a boy amigurumi before. I've just always loved the floral and frills of outfitting little girls. This time around, however, I wanted to make something a little less frou-frou . . . a lot more casual. Rough and tumble little boys seemed to be the logical answer.
I opted to outfit this bunny and the bear in aviator hats and scarves.
Here's a close-up of the aviator hat.
With chilly weather just around the corner, I decided to dress this bunny boy in a winter earflap hat and matching scarf.
And what has inspired me to create little amigurumi boys? Well, it may have something to do with the little man above :) Yep, this is the Big Project I've been working on and why I haven't been as quick and crafty as I normally am. I've been quite preoccupied preparing for his arrival. I'm so excited!
Well, if you are interested in any of the softies above, I should have them listed in my shop by this weekend.
Thank you for visiting and happy crafting! :)
