So I accomplished a big milestone..... I finished my first amigurumi! I'm so very excited how he turned out. I think I may be addicted now, I can't wait to make more! It helps that I bought a big bag of polyfil too so I need to use it all up.
My cousin Aryn is having a baby in October, and my other cousin is decorating the nursery in a grey and yellow theme. I wanted to contribute something, so after searching around ravelry I decided to purchase the Grant the Giraffe pattern I found on Ravelry.
This was a great pattern, easy to follow even for a beginner like me. Though I like the name Grant, I wanted to give him a different name..... and decided on Jerry. Jerry the giraffe, it has a nice ring to it don't you think?
I love how he has moveable legs, and can be positioned different ways. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn which makes him pretty squeezable too!
Time to get started on another amigurumi! I think I need to make one for Nell....
