Amigurumi Mimi "Pinkee" Bunny

Mimi "Pinkee" Bunny is another of my "character amigurumis" where she started off as a felt plushie but I wanted to transfer her over to crochet now. :)  Since we're coming up to Easter what perfect time to introduce a little bunny.

Mimi Bunny was a pure white rabbit when she was born but became obsessed with pink from an early age. Everything had to be pink and gradually over time she turned pink herself (apart from her tail) and adopted the name of "Pinkee". She lives in a little pink world of her own, but she's kind and has a big heart.

She craves pink cupcakes and many believe they are the secret to her pinkness.

Mimi can be adopted at my etsy shop. :)

New look for Cute Designs

I spent a lot of yesterday getting my website finished so I could upload it.  It's been in the pipeline for months now but it was just getting the time to do it and for my boyfriend to help with the design part and then putting in all the content.

So it was good to get it done and uploaded yesterday evening. :)  I just wanted a site that was relatively simple, easy to update and that shows pretty much all that I do as I've not had that before. :)  If you have a spare moment check it out at

Amigurumi Cats

Cats are my absolute favourite animal!  I've grown up with them and always had a cat about, they're just such cute, fun and curious little creatures. :)  So that may come as a surprise that there's rarely been an amigurumi cat in my shop to purchase over the last couple of years or so.

I've made a couple at various times but they just didn't look quite right to me, I don't know why.  I think cats are quite tough animals to do justice as they can come out looking evil.  Anyway I tried a new design which started out as a doodle in my notebook and was chuffed with the result. :)  I'm finally pleased with my cat design, so much so that I made two of them. :)  I love their little bells on their collars.

These little cuties will be up for adoption in my etsy shop. :)

Amigurumi Felix "Scout" McFrosty Penguin

Some of you may recognise this little fellow. :)  When I first started up on etsy I made felt plushies although the amigurumi crochet kind of took over in the end.  Well this is a little character my boyfriend designed for me and I think he's so cute. :)  He started off as a felt plushie and that's the way he's been for the last two and a half years or so.

But with deciding to concentrate more on my crochet I didn't want to lose some of my much loved felt plushie characters so I thought I'd gradually convert them to yarn and make little amigurumi critters out of them.  So here's Felix and in case he's new to you, here's his story...

Felix is on a mission from the Antarctic. Having heard about global warming his penguin clan sent him away to gather information on the world without snow and ice. Sadly, this was years ago and he is now lost and can't find his way home.

Fish was his favourite food but since leaving the Antarctic he has discovered a love for jelly babies.

Felix can be adopted at either my etsy shop or my folksy shop. :)
