I finely finished crocheting a mini polar bear and mini ice cream in a cup w/a cherry on top. It was a lot of fun to crochet these items. I will have a lot more crochet items to show off in a couple of days .
I loved how easy the patterns were for both items. Here is where u can get the patterns to crochet them.
The polar bear:
The mini ice cream in a cup w/a cherry on top:
The yarn that I used for this project was:
Paint box yarns in their cotton DK,
Yarn and colors must have all/minis in their cotton fingering weight.
You can get the paintbox yarns @ https://www.lovecrochet.com/us/paintbox-yarns
You can get the yarn and colors must have all colors / the must have minis yarns @ http://www.woolwarehouse.co.uk/yarn/yarn-and-colors-must-have-all-colours
Those are 2 of my fav. cotton yarn brands due to the rainbow choice of colors, softness of the yarn, and weight of the yarn. Paint box yarns DK is a light DK yarn weight not supper heavy an the yarn and colors yarn is a fingering/sport weight yarn but looks so shiny and pretty . Love the sizes of the yarn balls for both yarn brands especially the must have minis in the yarn and colors brand . The other good thing about both brands is the price isn’t that bad as well as the shipping to the us.
Paintbox yarns in rose red, pansy purple, banana cream all 3 are their cotton Dk yarn weight.
Yarn and colors must have all colors in purple bordeaux in their cotton fingering/sport yarn weight.
The cool safety eyes that you will be seeing on all of my ami/amigurumi crochet items are from 6060 eyes. There web site is http://6060eyes.com . Yes you can buy safty eyes from amazon I have done that before but the risk is getting chipped/broken eyes , eyes that are not what they look like in the pic. and some other issues that the 6060 eye web site goes over. They are one of the best safty eye people to buy from due to their prices, custom hand painted eyes, all sorts of different eyes you can get from them, fast shipping, you get what you see in the pic. , and shipping price is better than most. Go check them out if you need safety eyes for you cute ami/amigurumi items.
Happy crocheting. Wright more soon.
