Jacob Giraffe

Who’s this tall fellow?

It’s Jacob Giraffe – the newest Shiny Happy World crochet amigurumi pattern, all ready for you to stitch up!

Get the pattern here.

Just look at that face!

Jacob uses a super easy technique for crocheting those four legs together. Don’t worry – there’s a link to a video teaching you how to do it. πŸ™‚

When I sent out the pattern to Ami Club members, I mentioned how much I’d wanted to make a version in purple – and look what Vicki stitched up!

So sweet! And here’s another giraffe in super wild colors made by Santina. I love the tuft of hair she added to the top of his head!

I can’t wait to see what YOU make! Get the pattern here and share your finished giraffes in the Shiny Happy People group!

Happy stitching!

Cooper Cat Crochet Amigurumi Pattern Is in the Shop

Cooper Cat is in the shop!

He was the Ami Club pattern back in April, and now he’s available for everyone! Isn’t he a cutie? I just love those long, floppy arms and legs. πŸ™‚

Want to see some adorable kitties made by People Who Are Not Me? Denelda won the Cooper Crochet-Along with hers.

He looks to me like he’s ready for some mischief. πŸ™‚

And look at Vicki’s slightly grumpy cat.

That face is just so cute!

And what about Santina’s calico cat?

I especially love the patch on his tummy!

What color kitty will you make? I can’t wait to see!

Happy stitching!

Peter Panda Crochet Amigurumi Pattern

The Peter Panda pattern is in the shop!

This squishy cutie was the Ami Club pattern in January and now he’s in the shop for anyone to make.

He’s super easy to stitch up – inspired by Stillwater (the panda in the Zen Shorts books). And look – Amy made one for her library’s storytime and took a photo of him with the book!

I just love the vast expanse of his tummy. πŸ™‚

Get the pattern here.

Maxwell Monster Crochet Pattern Is in the Shop

Maxwell Monster is probably my favorite crochet pattern I’ve ever designed.

That goofy underbite! Those meaty paws! The hairy ears!

I just love everything about him. πŸ™‚

He was the October 2018 Ami Club pattern and now he’s available to everyone!

Get the pattern here.

Becky Crochet Doll Pattern Is in the Shop

I adore this doll pattern! I love her fancy dress with the puffy sleeves – and she has crocheted-in underpants under that skirt.

And her hair! I love that fancy bob with the ridges! You make it as a separate wig and then sew it in place – but you could leave the wig separate for kids who would like to be able to change out the hair. πŸ™‚

She uses a few more advanced skills (so she’s best for folks who have made a couple of amigurumi) but the pattern includes links to videos teaching all the skills you’ll need. You can do it!

Get the Becky doll pattern here.

Happy stitching!
