More Christmas presents

So, another picturey post tonight. I’m not in much of a mood for words, so pictures will have to suffice.

I made a few crocheted animals (or amigurumi) as presents. This first one was for my Dad, and is called Joshie. If you look at my Dad’s blog, you’ll see that he owns a tortoise called Henry. Joshie was made to be a substitute for Henry whilst he’s in hibernation!

Next up is Lavender, the baby elephant. She was made for my mother, who is something of an Elephant lover. I also put dried lavender in her feet. Lavender is now living with my mother’s collection of elephants in her living room.

Finally is Tubby. Tubby is a bath frog, with a sponge in his tummy, so he’s also an exfoliating frog!

They were all great fun to make, and the recipients were suitably impressed!

I should probably add that Joshie and Tubby were both named by my younger son, leaving the originally named Lavender to me!

  1. These are fantastic! Great idea to put dried lavender in the baby elephants feet. Lovely present idea.

  2. Thank you! I made quite a lot of lavender sachets for presents as well, and I had some lavender left by the time I made the little elephant. I’m debating in my head about maybe doing a craft fair or two later in the year, and a few little lavender elephants might feature in them!

  3. They look fantastic. I very much envy your crochet ability. Might be something I need to learn once the girls are both in school full time. 🙂
