This Mother’s Day post is for my mom. I love her. She taught me to knit and crochet when I was a child. And today I would like to share some of her work with you — she makes amazing toys for my children using crochet Amigurumi technique.
The first two toys — a bear with flowers and a convertible Cinderella doll — are my favourite, but all of them are charming in their own way.
This cute bear lives on my computer desk.
Cinderella in rags…
… turns into Cinderella in a beautiful gown.
And all it takes is a little bit of magic.
This bear is squishy and a bit sad.
A Big Funny Bunny.
A Small Funny Bunny.
A Cute Bunny. He wears a lace collar and for some reason has toes.
A realistic rabbit with a rattle inside.
Just look at this face. Doesn’t it look like his lip is quivering too?
A stress ball cat. And I don’t even have to squeeze it to get some positive emotions.
This Piggy has the same cheerful body type as the first cat. She is a very content animal.
Friendly Lady Bugs.
Little blue guys socializing.
A mouse with dangling limbs. Would be nice for a car.
Little Turtles are warming up in the sun.
This doll looks a bit like me, although her name is Yoko.
And this doll also has a rattle inside…
and unexpected hair colour.
In recent years, I grew closer with my mom through a shared love of handmade things. Thank you, Mom, and Happy Mother’s Day!
