It's that time of the month again! Give-away day!
Thats right! This months give-away is sponsored by Irene from
Reeneegurumi, who makes Amigurumi. We had to double-check
Wikipedia, so we'll share the definition with you - Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting (or crocheting) small stuffed animals and
Dictionary definitions aside, what they really are is super-cute, as you're about to discover!
Over to Irine to introduce the prize!
This month's prize is a Dreamy Giraffe, an adorable amigurumi crochet miniature toy made just for you in your favourite colours!
Each Dreamy Giraffe is crocheted and embroidered by hand, using the finest natural yarns. No two giraffes are exactly the same,
but each one is guaranteed to make you smile!
Any questions about the item should be sent directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or
you can learn more about Amigurumi in general or Reeneegurumi in particular at Irene's website:
More about.. Reeneegurumi by Irene Strange
Reeneegurumi happened quite accidentally... About 3 years ago, I desperately needed a present for a friend's birthday,
so I picked up some yarn and a crochet hook and tried making something. I didn't have a craft book handy, so I just made
up my own thing. Surprisingly, it worked...
Many months, and many finished birthdays presents later, I felt confident enough to try writing my own patterns, and so Reeneegurumi was born!
Right now there are about 20 patterns in the collection, and I try to add a new one at least once a month. In the works for this year are some cute amigurumi purse patterns and accessories, as well as more festive gift ideas, like my owls.
Crochet is a fantastic, though rather addictive, hobby - my living room is taken over with balls of yarn and sketchbooks. I hope to share many more critter patterns with you in the future!
