I recently bought this book 'Amigurumi' by Lan-Anh Bui and Josephine Wan and have actually made an 'Egg Bear' - it's the first project in the book and all I need to do to finish it is to add a felt muzzle and eyes. Mine seems to be a bit taller, so I think I'll squash it down a bit!
I'll be surfing Etsy to bring you some samples of these little crocheted creatures in the next few days, so if you like this idea please come back for more updates on my 'crocheted stuffed toys' journey.
Please let me know if you have some experience of this cute and cuddly craft - I'd be very pleased to include some of my Blog reader's examples too!
