I’m not finished with this little guy yet but I just couldn’t wait to show my WIP (Work In Progress). His name is 爱 “Ai” (Pronounced “eye”) and his name means love in Chinese. I drew a picture of what I wanted, a round amigurumi with a heart on his chest and on his sleeves. You know the saying “wearing your heart on your sleeve”… that’s where I got the idea from!
I made the heart really big because when you’re in love, at least… when I’m in love… my heart tends to outgrow the rest of me. And having an awesome husband helps keep my heart like this. I gave him blushing cheeks and a huge smile. I can’t wait to throw some arms and legs on him. I haven’t decided what colors I am going to use for him but I love him so far!
爱 and 困 are hanging out. I can’t wait till I complete my serious of Chinese Feeling Amigurumi Dolls.
I couldn’t resist a pic with them! When I finish his arms and legs, I’ll post more pictures! I hope you like them so far. I can’t decide which one of my sketches to do next. Hmmmm….. I guess we’ll see!
I finished him!
Long arms and little feet with a heart on his sleeve. I’m in love with Love!
I’ve been working on a project everyone! There are music things happening and now I’m on a mission for my “anniegurumi” projects. I’m designing a line of amigurumi after my Chinese lessons. I thought it would be fun to incorporate different feelings in Chinese as inspiration for my dolls. This little guy’s name is 困 (pinyin: kun) pronounced “coon” like cocoon. 困 is the character for “sleepy”. So I made him with his eyes closed and striped arms and legs.
Since I’m making these dolls from scratch, I drew a picture of what I want him to look like. I wanted him to have a pear shaped body and the small part of the pear to be his face. I wanted a yawning face with his eyes closed.
I made his legs in alternating colors!
I made the body and I was quite please with how it turned out. I wanted his legs and arms to be striped but opposite of each other.
The hubs thought it would be cute to have really long arms and the stripes to be thinner. So that’s what I did! I also wanted the arms and leg long since I want a child to be able to hold him easily if they are walking around. Isn’t he adorable? I’m planning on making him a hat like my picture but I couldn’t wait to share him with you!
I love 困 and can’t wait to work on the other “feeling” anniegurumi. If you’re wondering why I call them anniegurumi, it’s because it’s a play on words. Annie making amigurumi (the Japanese art of crocheted dolls). Enjoy! 困 sends sweet dreams to all of you! ZZzzZZzzZZzzZzzZZzzz
