This is my first pattern that I actually had the patience to sit down and write out as I worked! This frog was a Christmas present for my mom, (You should have seen the look on her face when she pulled him out of the bag!) and I must confess, a last minute gift/Christmas eve project. All in all I'm really happy with him, and if I ever do get around to selling some patterns, I'll certainly offer this one. I think he might also look cute with a top hat!

I think I've been having way too much fun with these guys lately, but when you throw creepy and adorable creatures together, the results are hilarious. Who do you think will win in the end? Will the Mighty Amazon over power the cute cuddly bear? Or will he wait until her guard is down and give her a surprise bear hug attack? I love that last one best of all! He look so completely satisfied with his victory, and the Amazon looks terribly bummed out...but.....look out Mr. Cuddles, she's got a spear and she knows how to use it!

These are crocheted toys created from patterns found in Ana Paula Rimoli's 2 books: Amigurumi World for the Penguin, the Cactus and the Cupcake, and Amigurumi Two: Crocheted Toys for Me and You and Baby Too! for the little bear. Check out Ana's fantastic crochet work at: http://amigurumipatterns.blogspot.com/
Ana is just so talented, and those toys are too cute! She is one of my first and biggest inspirations to learn crochet. Thanks Ana!

Here are all the creatures I made from patterns featured in Therese Laskey's book entitled Softies. There were great fun, and this book is excellent for crafters at all levels! My favourite plush creatures featured in my picture are Linda Lye's Treeling, hedge and a mushroom...more of Lynda's adorable creations at: http://www.forestprints.com/...what a pretty site it is!
