For the secret project I cannot blog about yet I was looking for an amigurumi. It had to be a sea themed amigurumi. So I made a compilation of cute sea creatures and showed it to a bunch of friends and family to decide what I should create.
In this process my 7 year old girl also saw the pictures… and she saw a very cute seal pattern. It wasn’t picked as part of the secret project, and that made her so sad, that I decided to make the seal for her.
That was at the end of June, while I was still recovering from a foot injury, so I had loads of time to crochet.
And look how cute he turned out? I did struggle a bit with his pompon, but in the end it looks OK I think. The hat and scarf are removable, and he’s from a free pattern… So if you’d like to make your own, head over to Pinterest.
I really love making amigurumi. There’s just something about creating an animal that always makes me smile. Sammy is amongst my favourite animals I’ve made so far – but it’s hard to pick just one. Do you have a favourite amigurumi? Would love to hear your thoughts!
