Work in Progress Wednesday: Crochet; Amineko

I’m a bit late with my Work in Progress entry…

Amineko, the cute amigurumi cat,  that I featured in last weeks Work in Progress Wednesday, didn’t get finished before my daughter returned to school from spring break.

My daughter was greeted with WIP Amineko, when she arrived home from school. She’s loving the progress, and has called her, Marigold. Appropriate name, don’t you think?

Today, I added the mouth, eyes, eyebrows. The only thing needed is to make one more leg, a tail, and of course add the mouth and nose, and then I’ll be done. If you look in the far right corner, you’ll see some material… that’s leftover material from an outfit I’d made for my daughter when she was a newborn baby. I’ve decided to sew a cute little dress for Marigold.

Looking at the above picture, it’s obvious that Marigold isn’t too pleased. Just look at her? Her arms are crossed! I’ve been told (by my daughter) that I need to add a face, because she believes she looks like a bear. She’s also wondering when she’ll be completed?

Well, she should be completed by tomorrow, which means, I’ll have an additional item to share for Finished object Friday!

Although I still feel new to crochet, creating amineko wasn’t too difficult. You will need to know how to crochet a magic ring, single crochet, and how to decrease crochet stitches.
