Sea Otter amigurumi crochet pattern

USD $6.50  USD $6.00

I have never even heard of amigurumi when I found June's web site while looking for a special thing to make for a new baby. I have crocheted afghans and blouses, but never have made something like an amigurumi. I read the reviews and decided I would try. June's patterns are easy and straight forward to follow. The How-to videos are clear and her documentation of those same steps are wonderful to refer to. I cannot get over how cute the finished product is and how proud I am that I made it. This little guy will last a long time and hopefully be the new baby's favorite toy. I used yarn for teh eyes, as the safety eyes are not recomended for under kids 3.
June was there when I was stuck with a question, and was very supportive. Now I am obsessed. What next to meake? A kitty? A penguin? So many choices and all are just pefectly designed. Can't wait to get started.
