How to: Make Easter Great with Amigurumi!
Easter is speeding up on us - and you know what that means - MUST CRAFT FASTER!!!!
When it comes to last-minute holiday crafting, amigurumi - tiny crocheted or knitted toys - are a godsend. Here are some of my favorite quickie patterns, in knitting and crochet, for slightly wacky Springtime craft.
When it comes to Easter candy, I love Peeps - these Day Glo-toned marshmallow chicks are a perennial reminder of all the fun I had gorging myself every Easter as a kid. Nowadays I worry about what all that artificial color might be doing to my innards (is it possible...that my stomach's turned orange?) Luckily this amigurumi pattern from Schmutzerella offers a colorful, though inedible, substitute.
Last but not least, there are some of us who don't dig on Judeo-Christian holidays but still love a) pastel colors and b) edible delights. Luckily Knitpicks has a delicious amigurumi cupcake pattern - make up a bunch for a Springtime brunch!
All of these patterns are totally free - maybe leave the authors a comment to say thank you?
