Baby Shower Gift Ideas: Crochet Teddy Bear

Baby Shower Gifts

Teddy Bear Crochet Pattern

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 :)

Hand Painted Safety Eyes - New Sets!

There are new hand painted "gourmet" safety eye sets available in my Etsy shop: TinyAmigurumi
I hand paint every single eye myself. I mix colors, I use fine artist colors. I create effects. This all makes them unique. If you spend so much time creating your amigurumi toys, plushes, knitted toys, or any handmade toys that would require safety eyes, you would like to add this something extra. Say more with eyes!

Amigurumi Jointed Teddy Bear Villem and Marta: New Amigurumi Crochet Teddy Bear Patterns

Do you like crochet amigurumi teddy bears with vintage inspired elegance with jointed head, legs and hands? I´m so happy to share with you my latest news. I have listed these new amigurumi crochet teddy bear patterns in my shop: two patterns in the the same PDF tutorial. 

4-way Jointed Teddy Bear: Teddy Villem

5-way Jointed Teddy Bear: Teddy Marta

They are crocheted in the same way, but differ in head and body and also in a placement of safety toy eyes because Marta bear is fully jointed.

Fully jointed Amigurumi Teddy Marta is made out of DK/worsted Alpaca yarn, ca. 80 gr.
(here Schachenmayr smc, Alpaka Premium)
She has a sophisticated feel that makes it a great crochet bear for adults as well.

Vintage inspired teddy bear patterns are now available for you to crochet a bear or two. They have this classical look which gives the childhood teddy bear effect. Why you should give it a try, will give you some reasons:
a) very little sewing required. Amigurumi Teddy Marta is fully jointed, meaning there´s only ears to be sewn to head. 

b) inserting plastic safety joints is easy, because I´ve designed the teddy bear pattern with little holes in a body and in head where to place plastic safety joints (placing joints, joining head to body using safety joints), so everything has made very easy for you

c) you can make very many classical amigurumi teddy bears with this teddy bear pattern. Create your own Teddy Bear as a gift for a child, for a grand child for closed ones or why not to yourself, if you don´t have one. Teddy is a lifetime friend. 

And you can customize it to suit any occasion. And you can crochet scarves in various colors to make it even cuter!

New Sets of Hand Painted Safety Eyes

Hand Painted Safety Eyes for Amigurumi

When you need something extra - personality to your amigurumi toys, here´s some new sets of hand painted safety eyes, I´ve listed to my shop: Tinyamigurumi.  They are all hand painted by me. Most of the eyes are unique, because I mix colors, create some effects or add pearl or golden effect. I´ve painted these gourmet sets for amigurumi makers who are really into handmade things from start to finish. I like to use very fine yarns and crochet hook is also important, not to mention stuffing. Yes, stuffing for amigurumi toys is significant, will come back to that in my next posts. 
So, if you are looking for hand painted safety eyes for your own amigurumi creations, you are most welcome to my shop.

Easter Decorations 2018

A little photo stream of this year´s Easter 

We dyed Easter eggs with onion skins. A traditional method. We wrapped them in nylon stockings. To create even more interesting patterns, we used first green leaves nature were giving us. It´s always just a wonderful thing to unwrap them to find so many different patterns, colors and shades. Of course, some eggs were painted with pencils and markers as well, like the little bunny, drawn by my daughter: studyelise. I like the simplicity. And of course, there´s always some chocolate as well. This year´s favorites: Fazer Mignons and some good Kalev Chocolate eggs. Spring is just around the corner.
