A whole new crew of Ami cuties!
This year I have been working on a new line of ami's that have become some of my fave's! These creatures have BIG eyes that give them expression, similar body shapes with all the right different parts to make them their own animal and they work up so quickly! They're the perfect size for kids to play with or to make as a special keepsake that can be displayed in a nursery and they're PERFECT to create to sell at your local market!
The one that started it...
I was participating in an ami exchange with some other creators and the theme of the exchange was "Love Spring" - we had to make something that was either 'love' oriented or 'spring' oriented. My exchange partner, Berta from Bentina's Crochet, loves dragons. I decided to create for her a Valentine's dragon, named Scarlet the Dragon, with beautiful heart wings and big green eyes!
The next six designs...
These designs all came about so quickly! These 6 animals are the most asked for animals, in my experience! I have another almost 2 dozen designs in the works or being planned on in this line! All of these animals have instruction for yarn eyes as well, for those who want to make them without the post craft eyes or don't have access to the larger 18-20mm eyes!
A lot of the eyes that I have been using lately come from the fantastic company, Suncatcher Craft Eyes! Another company that I love is CLE Supplies! The variety of eyes available go from 4.5mm to 40mm! And the colors are wide ranging with different styles; glitter, opaque, shimmer, hologram, glow in the dark, neon, solid black, eyes with eyelashes attached, and there's also noses! If you need 1 pair or are interested in a package of a variety of different colors and sizes, they've got it all!
