And MsBhaven's take:
And if that wasn't lovely enough, MsBhaven, who is an amigurumi fan herself, was inspired by the Amiga Penguin pattern to make Angry Birds! Take a look at these beauty's and read what she has to say about them:
"ok so Marjoriecrochets penguin pattern inspired me I kept seeing angry birds when I was testing her pattern this is Marjorie's pattern all the way the difference is I dropped the last row of the beak on her pattern and I made only one wing and dropped the last row of it as well and made it the tail. I did not adjust the body at all."
I'm working away at some new patterns. One that I've focused on this week is my Abagayle Purse. I originally wrote this wa-a-a-y back in 2008, but put it away and didn't do anything with it until now. I'm experiencing a temporary yarn shortage at the moment, so in order to transcribe my funny short hand into standard crochet terms, I had to use size 10 thread to test my directions.
Here's the original bag:
And my size 10 test sample:
What do you think? Would you crochet something like this? I'll be posting the free pattern in a day or two.
