From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia
Amigurumi (編みぐるみ, lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features, as is typical in Japanese culture.
I discovered Amigurumi, and totally fell in love! After making 4 from free patterns, I started designing my own.  hope you enjoy them.

What Is Candlewicking?
Candlewicking is a type of embroidery done on 100-percent cotton unbleached muslin, which has not been preshrunk.
The candlewicking fabric is washed after stitching; the shrinking of the muslin will not only hold the knots, but it also will give the puckered look of traditional candlewicking.
