Hello! I´m Laura. I have been crocheting since childhood and on 2009 I discovered the fun of amigurumi. For the past years I have dedicated my creativity to the craft of amigurumi and I´m passionate about creating crochet designs and handmade toys.
I have listed all new sets for safety eyes to my Etsy Shop
They are all hand-painted, you´ll find beautiful 12mm, 15mm, 18mm, 20mm safety eyes. Toy eyes with glitter, pearl effect, eyes with layers, reflects, golden dots etc. Safety Eyes for Teddy Bears and all Amigurumi Animals. I use the best Japanese safety eyes and very fine artist paints and varnish to fix the paint. If you want to add beautiful eyes for your handmade creations there´s something for you. Every single eye is painted with care. For amigurumi, crochet toy makers.
Crochet Amigurumi Crocodile Toy PDF PATTERNThis amigurumi crochet crocodile pattern was already created in 2012 - Amigurumi Crochet Crocodile PATTERN, I have made a family of crocodiles for a little boy who finds crocodiles very fascinating. I also find crocodiles fascinating. Baby crocodiles are so lovely and the bond between mother and kids is very strong. Crocodiles are known as one of the oldest living things on Earth. My amigurumi crochet interpretation of crocodiles.
There are some new hand-painted toy and doll eyes for amigurumi and or any handmade toys available now in my Etsy Shop: TinyAmigurumi Painting these toy eyes take a long time but they really make a difference if you spend so much time in creating toys. I paint only small sets. Some examples of these my hand-painted safety eyes for toys
Amigurumi Crochet Mini Pig - Golden Pig - Chinese New Year
Trust the magic of new beginnings! What better way to get the Chinese New Year spirit than to crochet a lovely piglet, golden one. I used Mini Amigurumi Crochet Pig Pattern and Brilla yarn by Filatura di Crosa, 2mm crochet hook, 6mm black safety eyes. It´s a relatively easy amigurumi pattern to follow and contains lots of photos. Definitely a nice crochet project for the upcoming Valentines day as well. Piglets are so lovable and also a symbol of wealth and fortune. Shine Piglet Shine! Handmade and so precious!
Lucas the Teddy Bear (We´re one but we´re not the same!)
My latest three teddy bears: made with Lucas the Teddy Bear Pattern The original Lucas the teddy bear pattern calls for hook size number 2, but here I used 3mm crochet hook for the very first time in my life. :) I use 2.5mm hook with most of my yarns, they are often DK/Worsted weight or 2mm with Sports weight for smaller ones like this mini bunny.
Lucas the Teddy Bear works with all kind of yarn and hook sizes, design won´t change. Excellent. And I like to follow my patterns on a smartphone. :)
I used Scheepjes Stone Washed XL yarn (Yellow Jasper), 3mm crochet hook, 8mm hand-painted safety eyes, cotton thread for the nose. Needed 3 balls/skeins on the dot of this beautiful yarn - 150 grams. I recommend buying 4, just in case, if you´d want to try with a 3.5mm crochet hook as well.
These hand-painted safety eyes give a unique look to handmade creations. New sets of hand-painted safety eyes now available in my shop: TinyAmigurumi Sometimes I have a stiff neck because of painting each safety eyes one by one, adding more layers and using varnish afterwards but I´ve seen amazing handmade dolls and toys with these eyes used. So if you use my hand-painted safety eyes for your work add a hashtag #happamigurumi that I could see them even more.
If I look into those hand-painted safety eyes eyes I can see so many cute amigurumi crochet teddy bears. Some with a warmish undertone, some with pearl effect - perfect for handmade teddy bears
Have you seen those big-eyes toys? New finished clams. Nothing but eyes kind of feeling.
If you want to make a baby shower gift from the heart, then take some days to crochet a teddy bear. I have a perfect Amigurumi Crochet Teddy Bear Pattern for the baby shower: Lucas the Teddy
Personally I adore hand crochet teddy bear toys - They just have this something extra that every mom would like for her child. Crochet Teddy Bear is a lifetime friend and a nice memory - unique gift that is guaranteed to last forever. Crochet Teddy Bears are well loved by young and old. Lucas the Teddy Bear Design works with different yarns and hook sizes, the design won´t change. That´s why I like the design. Instead of buying a ready made teddy bear you could always consider crocheting one yourself. It takes time but it´s totally worth it.
My baby shower gifts: a Crochet Teddy Bear and a Crochet Rug
I also crocheted a nice rug using tube yarn. Unfortunately didn´t write the pattern down. Love those minimalist colors - different shades of grey and white. My baby shower gifts: a nice combination of a teddy bear and a handmade rug.
And the baby with her baby shower gifts
Just lovely, no words needed :)
