Amigurumi is a Japanese crochet craft.  According to what I have discovered, people carry these cute little animals with them kind of like a talisman.  I would carry mine just because they are so cute.  They can be animals that are recognizable, or little critters that come right out of the imagination of the artist.

And once you get the knack of creating the basic shapes, it’s easy to create your own.

Come back soon, and I will have some basic pattern instructions for you.
