Free Cloud Amigurumi with Rain

Posted on April 06, 2019 by Lorene Eppolite | 0 Comments

 

Join Brenna Eaves of Little Fiber Raven Arts and Furls Crochet for their April 2019 Ami CAL. This month we are making this adorable free cloud amigurumi with rain. You can make your cloud a storm cloud or a sweet raincloud, you can even add a fun rainbow; better yet make both.

April Showers is a fun and easy project to whip up, no matter the weather! The cloud is worked flat in two pieces and then stitched together, allowing for the easy inclusion of additions like lightning or a bright rainbow poking out. Happy spring!

ABOUT OUR DESIGNER

Brenna Eaves is the one-woman team behind Little Raven Fiber Arts. A self-taught fiber artist with more than 13 years’ experience building things with stitches, she has the type of yarn stash that, if unraveled and tied end to end, would stretch to the moon and back. Though also an accomplished knitter, cross-stitcher, writer, artist, and graphic designer, crochet is her happy place. She lives and works out of Wisconsin.

PART ONE

For part one, we’ll be making our cloud panels and deciding on a face. Next week, for part two, we’ll make it rain, even get a little stormy with a lightning bolt, and maybe we’ll see a rainbow peek out from the clouds!

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
