Amigurumi is derived from the Japanese words: Ami which is knitted or crocheted and nuigurumi, which is a stuffed doll. Most amigurumi are cute knitted or crocheted characters, creatures etc. Learn more on my blog post.
Yes, I hand crochet each item that you would see at my craft shows and also for any crocheted items purchased on my website or for a custom order.
Smaller items like a taco can take between 1-3 hours. Larger items, like pillows can take between 4-5 hours. The more items that need to be individually crocheted per piece will determine the amount of time to create one piece.
Yes, I have limited items available on Etsy. However, due to the increasing seller fees, my products are more expensive on Etsy. I recommend purchasing directly from my website.
You can find a selection of my items at several retail stores.
Many products include small parts that could become a choking hazard. These products are not recommended for small children.
