Bobbles, the Baby Angel

Angels come in all shapes and sizes. For me, he came in an 8-inch frame.

Allow me to explain.

 Every year, [folks behind the cutest amigurumi books in the planet] organizes a contest for amigurumi designers. When they announced this year’s theme—Fantasy Creatures, I was super excited. Lately I’ve been bingeing on quite a bit of fantasy and mythology books and I knew exactly what I was going to make for the contest—Faun, a mythological half-human, half goat.

First, I made a rough sketch of my design would look like. Then I made the hooved legs and the upper body.

Next, I sat down to work on the arms. As you can see in the pic above, the whole thing was going to be wired from the inside, right down to the fingertips, to make every inch of this toy movable. I was so excited about the whole idea. It was going to be big and it was going to be glorious! In my excitement, I worked non-stop and neglected to listen to my body. Next day I woke up with swollen and painful wrist and fingers. This was back in September. I haven’t been able to crochet since. 😞

So as you must have guessed already, my Faun design is still in the WIP bin. Which brought me to the conclusion: I was not going to meet the contest deadline. It was a depressing thought. After all, I have been participating in this annual design contest every year since its inception. I was totally bummed!

It was then this angelic little fella who I had made many moons ago, asked me if he could participate. I told him I couldn’t be happier! I mean just when I had given up, he flapped his cute little wings and everything was alright again. 😁

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Bobbles, the baby angel, my entry for “Amigurumi Fantasy Creatures Design Contest”.

Bobbles is an angel responsible for finding missing underwear. Yes, you read that right! Every time an exceptionally mischievous child discards his underoos in the bathroom [just because he feels like it] or flings it under the couch [just to annoy his mom], Bobbles promptly swoops in, retrieves the offending piece, and quietly drops it in the laundry bin. Granted it is not the most glamorous job but he saves moms around the world quite a bit of bother. Isn’t he such an angel!

If you find Bobbles cute enough to be among the stars of this contest, will you please take a moment to vote for him here?

This year, voters also stand to win some amazing goodies. Once you submit your vote, your name will be automatically entered in the raffle to win 100 Must-Have Minis yarn balls by Yarn and Colors! How awesome is that!

Snow Buddies

I’m super excited to tell you that my little Snow Buddies are featured in the October 2017 issue of Happily Hooked Magazine. It is a quick and easy project that requires small amounts of yarn, and is suitable for all skill levels.

As this amigurumi has a flat base, it can sit on any flat surface without support, which makes it an excellent desk accessory, a cute decor for your mantel or your shelf. It’s a little over 5 inches when made with sock weight yarn and a 2.5mm hook.
