When you make something with love it begins to live its own life, a toy decides what character it wants to have, and what time it wants to be made... I have night toys, morning toys... There are designs I can cross stitch only when I am listening to some music... All what I do creates me
So, you have finished crocheting your last stitch on one of the details.
You are looking at a strange phrase «Fasten off, stuff and tighten the
opening». Or maybe there is nothing at all instructed in your pattern. Does the
designer suppose you know what to do with this loop you are now having on your
hook? Does it obvious how to stuff, fasten off and so on? – Not always.
Especially if you are just learning how to crochet toys such simple
things that are “supposed to be known” may totally frustrate you all the time.
I crocheted for a few months before it occurred to me that I’m crocheting wrong
So. Here it is :) (how I sew
long openings I will show a little later)
It's fun how designing of quite a simple toy can sometimes require crocheting so many details!
I had lots of difficult crocheted toys that I did from the first time or just with a few changes.
But this amigurumi Panda made me do 7 upper paws! 2 heads, 2 bodies, 5 ears, 5 legs. And I haven't even counted the number of different black spots for eyes that I tried to choose the best size and shape.
But now my little Panda driver is finished! And even the draft of the pattern! Masha is happy ))
