I’ve convinced myself to join 4th Amigurumi Exhibition 2017 during this winter. The exhibit will be held at Resobox Gallery in New York, USA. This is my 2nd chance to join. My 1st chance was when I lived in Tokyo, it’s about 3 years ago. Not really went well, but I was thankful had such a good opportunity at that moment. It such a big deal for me to join this moment again this year. I needed a moment to think twice and more before I’ve finally decided to join in.
Every year Resobox organizes this exhibit in a different theme. This year’s theme is daily needs. It’s a very common theme and sounds easy for me. When I applied, I had to write down my personal theme about daily needs. What was that? I was so confused. But then I thought… I usually made an amigurumi pattern about some things that baby always needs or child usually loves. So I decided to write down this theme: baby need. Yes, a baby need is my personal theme. I already had some finished items as a sample pattern I made awhile ago and some amigurumi patterns which already listed both on my Etsy Shop and Ravelry (so you can make it one by yourself). I use my own pattern with a little mix and match with my other pattern. It really made my works easier and faster, no need to consume much time. I only needed a few more ideas to get more new designs.
Ok, enough for my prolog. I’m gonna show you all my 21 amigurumis that I’ve sent yesterday (I know it too soon to be sent. But hey, complicated things may happen during the shipment. Who knows? But I’m hoping they are all arrive there safely, in the right place and time).
Finger Puppets. This team was the last thing I’ve made. No idea at all at the end, then they came up in sudden. Thanks gang for coming to my brain 😀 So here they are, tiny team but success to make a happy face and smile from ear to ear 🙂
Fish Baby Rattle. In the middle of working these 2 fishes, somebody asked me about the pattern, and somebody put her custom order. Happy me, of course 😀 The pattern ready both on my Etsy and Ravelry.
Mouse Coaster. They are my old creations then I did a makeover. They’re not in a baby need’s theme because I can put other creations outside the main theme I’ve applied. They join to ignite the exhibition 😀
Pear Patchwork. 2 pear patchworks are for a baby rattle and the last one as a pin cushion. I added some sequins and beads.
Baby Barefoot Sandal. Maybe not really a common thing, but it’s the fancy one to be worn on your baby’s little feet 😀 By simply hooking the little circle into index toe and wrap a along the long strap around baby’s ankle.
Tree Baby Rattle. Inspired by my childhood, I always drew a tree with a shape like this.
Big Nose Puppy Baby Rattle. I made the grip using mushroom baby rattle amigurumi pattern, and the head part using big nose puppy amigurumi pattern. And I added a ruffle as a collar. My daughter said that this is a clown puppy haha!
Cloud Mobile. This is the biggest one. It’s not a toy but for decorative purpose. Hang it in baby room or kid’s room, and even your room. It’s just perfect for everybody who loves cute little things. The basic pattern ready to download here.
Mushroom Baby Rattle. I think this is the most wanted amigurumi pattern on my Etsy shop 😀 Need no more reason why these two mushrooms had to join the exhibition 🙂
I guess that’s all the stories I have. Most of them are a baby rattle. Why? Because I concern about baby development. When babies play, they learn something new from the toys through their 5 senses. Hope all my creations useful for babies and bring a joy to anyone who sees them.
