Lion Brand website. The snake pattern is here. I didn't have any safety eyes, so I used two small pearl beads that I sewed on instead. I also added a felt red tongue. The yarn I used changed colour every few centimetres, which gave it a rainbow effect.
I'm still working on my elephant. I had trouble making both ears identical, but I managed in the end. Hopefully I'll be able to post a pic tomorrow, or on Wednesday.

I've been looking for a cute free elephant amigurumi pattern for some time. None of them was really what I wanted, but I have nevertheless started one using this pattern. As soon as it's finished, I'll post the picture on my blog.
In the meantime, I thought you'd like to meet Lester. It's the name my son has given to the little amigurumi rabbit I made using this pattern. My Lester looks a bit different from the original version. He's 19cm tall, and I changed the facial features. I think he's cuter too!

I've been interested in sewing and crochet for many years, but have only recently started to be more active.
I discovered amigurumi (Japanese for crochet soft toys) two months ago and have really got hooked (ha ha). Here's one of my earlier creations (I found the pattern here) - more will follow and I might even get around to writing up some of my own patterns. Watch this space!
