Assembly

 

If you would like to add wire into the arms and legs of your monster, now is the time to pull the wire out! I used a 14GA, and I picked mine up at Canadian Tire. 

You will cut a piece of wire long enough to go through both arms and the body with a little room on either end. Now to find out exactly how much that is I normally lay the body and arms out and them measure it out and cut it.

Now work the piece of wire through the body, and use your pliers and bend each end. By bending the ends that will help prevent the wire from poking through. 

Now you can put the arms over the wire and sew them in place. and you will do the same thing for the legs, if you would like them to be poseable. 

Place the collar around the neck and sew the two ends together. 

Weave in all of your ends and trim them. And that's it, you now have your very own sweet little monster! 

I hope you all enjoyed this CAL! I really enjoyed creating this little guy!! Make sure to tag your photos of your monsters that you share with #furlscrochet, I would love to see them all! And if you haven't already come on over  to the Fun With Furls Facebook Group to share photos of your monster and to connect with other crocheters, you can find the group here! Again, thank you to everyone for taking part in this CAL!! Should you have any questions about this pattern also please feel free to email me at amidorablecrochet@gmail.com. Happy crocheting! 

Jackie :)

It’s the pattern you’ve all been waiting for… welcome back to the March amigurumi CAL, Part 3: the English Robin! It’s officially spring and the weather’s still testing boundaries-- it’s always this time of year that I dig out The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and curl up to read about tiny green sprouts peeking through the thawing soil and little round robins making friends and thawing hearts. This week we’ll be making our own little Robin Redbreast as we start thinking about how our own gardens grow...

Welcome to Part 2 of the March Amigurumi CAL! Since last week and my premature postulations of spring, Old Man Winter had a right old chuckle and sent along Winter Storm Stella. In addition to the snow-dusted robins, we had a rare visit this week from some Northern Cardinals during the blizzard-induced feeding frenzy – perfect, then, that this week’s amigurumi birdie is one and the same!
