Not long ago I added some little dogs to my small collection of amigurumi. It seems that my design process starts off in my head, I then draw a, usually very bad, picture of what I have in mind and then start working out how to crochet it.
Here is an unconstructed dog!
I made two versions, one with a fat and another with a more sculpted look head, this last one I was going to use in a dog with all four legs on the ground, as you can see his head is far too heavy!! A design fail! I should have know that would happen!
Eventually, though the design was right and I was ready to make more. Like my cats and bunnies the dog has a little basket and blanket so he can be tucked up all snug at the end of the day. I have a few in my Etsy shop right now!
I’ve even done a little video showing you amigurumi dogs in more detail! Something I would never have done a few months ago! I took part in a video challenge set by Nicola Smith of A Handcrafted Business it gave me the confidence to have a go, it gives me a chance to show myself to you lovely lot!
That’s all from me today, see you soon!
