As the school year comes to a close, it’s time to start thinking about summertime activities – taking the kids to the pool, having neighborhood barbecues, sitting outside reading … the list goes on. Most people prefer spending time outside during the summer and enjoying the fresh air.
But it’s not always easy to take your craft projects outside with you on a sunny summer day. You can’t take a sewing machine outside. Paper projects might float away in the breeze. Beading crafts might get lost. Knitting or crochet patterns, however, are very mobile and can be worked on almost anywhere – on your living room couch, on the back patio, or near the pool. You don’t have to worry about them getting lost or ruined in the great outdoors.
If you’re looking for crafting inspiration this summer, why not try crochet amigurumi? These adorable crochet animals are great for beginners, and your kids will love them! (You will too!)
Start the summer off right by making a new friend for you, your daughter, or your grandson. These simple crochet animals and dolls are perfect ways to get into the art of crocheting, and they don’t take long to make. You’re sure to fall in love with these little guys!
