But not only for them, I have a beautiful collection of amigurumis and I am very happy with each new piece that I finish. If you still don’t know, amigurumi is a craft technique that is capable of creating several little animals, as well as stars, flowers, dolls among many other things using few materials. In addition to gifting or creating for yourself, amigurumi is a great craft opportunity for extra income.
Usually made with cotton threads, amigurumis can have the most varied colors and shapes. But they have some characteristics that make them unmistakable. One of them is that pets usually have spherical and cylindrical shapes. Another particularity is the large head and eyes, evident in relation to the rest of the body. Amigurumis are also short, their size varies between 10 and 30 centimeters.
