Amigurumi pixies

amigurumi pixiesJan 1 has finished both her pixies and they look so cute. It’s the colours and the expressions on their faces which make them so cute. They are lovely and soft so they will be so cuddly for the children who receive them. The trick is not to overstuff the toys. Amigurumi can be completed relatively quickly and you can develop the shapes you want. It’s satisfying and to be able to make your own little personalities is something which gives you a sense of accomplishment.

The is a nice free pattern for a flower pixie on Happy Berry.
