Thanks to my #yolocrojo (see last post here) my amigurumi crojo is back 🎉😍 yay! i love amigurumi, it is probably my most favourite form of crochet, & the one i am most best at. But my ami-crojo can sometimes fade. I find amigurumi needs a lot more of my brain power, & for a time poor tired mama, that can be difficult. But i am really wanting to get some new cuddly friends on my hook.
That prompted me to go on a little treasure hunt through my home & collect all the amigurumi toys i had made the twins, to take a group photo as inspiration! I had to do this in a hurry while Layla was napping, so she didn’t notice, as she walks around, almost constantly, with one of her friends tucked under her little chubby arm 💖 Wolf, isn’t as interested as his sister, but he has a few favourites (baby shark & his Wolf) that he doesn’t like to share with Layla.

These toys have been fed, squashed, cuddled, slept with, fought over, tossed around, trod on, buried.. you name it, & they are all still in one piece. If need be, I can always do some alteration work, but I love that I have made them for them.
Here is a list of the toys, & their designers, so you can make them too:
Snuffles & Sniffles Snake – Patterns by Little Cosy Things (me!!) you can find it here
Percy Duck – Pattern by Jhak @sundotattack
Chum the Shark – Pattern by Sarah @critterbeans (this is baby shark, i have actually made Mummy Shark & Daddy Shark too, but Wolf had them in his cot with him sleeping ❤)
Walt Monster (standing at the back next to snakes) – Pattern by Ozlem @ring_beller
Flamingo – Pattern by Vanessa @vanessamooncie from her book Crocheted Wild Animals
Care Bear – Pattern is an old vintage pattern i found in a garage sale! It has no details as to who wrote the pattern or even published it, but I am assuming it was the official Care Bears who did. I haven’t been able to find another copy, sorry!
Sunny & Bill Birds & Giraffes – Patterns all by Alison @kornflake_stew
Reindeer – Pattern by Kaisha @whimsyhen
I hope next time I take a group shot like this, it will be double the size 😍
