Weekly Obsession : Amigurumi

Hello kitty and Dear Daniel wedding set $65

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting small animals or toys. There are so many adorable designs, shapes, and themes that making these little guys seems like a real treat. I have never tried it myself, but I definitely will in the near future. I just love going to flickr and looking at all of the cute little animals and foods that people have brought to life! Here are a few of my favourites from ETSY!
