It has been quite some time since I posted pictures of things which I have made. So here they are - The finished cupcakes. Some are made to be gift tags/bookmarks, and some are brooches :).
I also made this:
Can you tell that it is a pear? A minty looking pear :).
Unfortunately, there is something wrong with it. The stitches on my pear do not look at all like the finished product on Ana Paula Rimoli's amigurumi book. I have a sinking feeling that my stitches are incorrect. If you know what is wrong, perhaps you can tell me? :)
Despite this not-so-little problem, I am very happy with my pear. Crocheting is difficult (despite what others say)! I called myself names (mainly "stupid" and "idiot") while reading and re-reading books; watching and re-watching You Tube videos on crocheting. My first amigurumi was a shrivelled cupcake, which was never finished. The cupcake, unfortunately, met a very terrible end this morning. I accidentally vacuumed it up while cleaning my table (Good riddance!).
Happily, the pear turned out better. I will merrily ignore the stitching problem, so long as the final result looks cute to my eyes :).
Minty pear here will form part of a gift to a friend. Thank goodness she doesn't know anything about amigurumi - it means she will not be able to spot what's wrong with it. ;)
That's all for now.
Wishing you a happy week! :)
