I Heart Amigurumi

Amigurumi (translation: crocheted stuffed toys) are distinct from other crocheted toys in that they originated in Japan, have large heads in proportion to their bodies, and are just stinking cute. I can spend hours looking at all of the amazing creations out there in the crafting world. I got hooked as soon as I saw this on Etsy, from Owlishly:




I am now obsessed with finding the perfect amigurumi to crochet for my little one's birthday, just a few months away. Which one should I choose?
