Amigurumi has been on my "must craft" list forever. I just found a fabulous little kick in the pants. The amazing Roxycraft has a page on her site devoted to free patterns! Whoa! Talk about generous! You can check it out here: http://www.roxycraft.com/free_patterns.htm
(no, these guys aren't among the freebies...but they're awesome!)
This is in addition to the amazing patterns she's published through her site and her real life book.
I've been at many of the same craft shows with her, and she is super nice. And her creatures are totally swoon-worthy. I'm not sure how it's possible for them to be even cuter in real life, but they are! So why not hop on over there?
