Amigurumi at Home by Ana Paula Rimoli, photographs by Brent Kane, pub. Martingale & Company, 2014.
This is a charming book. I don't really crochet, but these projects would be great for learning and stabilizing my technique.
I might start with the turtle on the lower shelf, between the bag and the tooth fairy pillow. It's an adorable floor cushion and we could always use another seat.
For my second project I'll have to decide between the bag and a little rug. The bag has a mushroom inside to help hold the contents up (especially important for books and magazines). It's such clever feature it will be hard to resist.
But if my skills are not advanced enough for it I'll have to practice on one of the floor coverings.
My daughter wants a cupcake rug (above), while I've become smitten with the teacup (at left). Other irresistible projects are the caterpillar with its body made up of little bowls, and the dinosaur rug.
The pieces are not rated as to difficulty, and there are no gauge indications, but the instructions seem otherwise clear. I love that the digital version includes a scale-setting 2" line. Shaping that looks complicated, like the cat muzzle (left) and tooth roots, are actually made separately and sewn on.
