I had showed Yan a page from the book Amigurumi Two! by Ana Paula Rimoli.
Did I mention? I went to the library earlier this month to borrow some crochet books. Boy was I excited! I was searching through the online library catalog to see what books they had..typing in keywords like crochet and Amigurumi etc and since Sengkang library was the nearest, I quickly jotted down which ones they had and sprinted off to get them. (Literally sprinted coz I sent Melody to play group and I only had about an hour+ to and fro before her class ended)
Here are the books I borrowed!
Oh yes back to the birthday present.. Haha very bad habit of side tracking.
My sis and I were at muji picking out my hubby's birthday present when we came across a shelf of plain tote bags. I was sharing with her that some ppl do felting onto these kind of bags and it was quite nice. Unfortunately i told her I don't have the tools nor the skills to do it. BUT, if she wants, I can crochet something onto it. So yep, she bought the bag and I had roughly under 2 weeks to get it done.
I was showing her a page that has cute amigurumi flowers vs a granny square sample that I had done for "crochet granny swap" group (that's another big 'international' project altogether) and she chose the cute amigurumi flowers.
I can see why. Haha
So I started making one flower.
Halfway through I realized i won't be able to attach the flower as it was round. So I decided to stop at the semi circle.
Too me many days just to finish this flower...
And I didn't have time. So I was trying to decide how to design the bag!
M for Melissa? Haha
Not so nice..and how am I going to make the yarn stick?
I deliberated and finally decided to make flowers.. Initially I wanted to make a sunflower.. So I started searching for a pattern..came across a few other flowers except the sunflower. No choice, I started making some flowers first.
And finally I just googled for crocheted sunflower images and decided to make my own without a pattern!
One more flower and I decided it should be enough.
I asked my hubby to help with the layout.. And there, finally finished!
So what actually happened to that flower/sun (I couldn't decide) in the end?
I decided to make another semi-sphere and turn it into a tag/keychain.
