Crochet donkey - amigurumi bez šivanja



Dva magarčića na fotografijama izgledaju dosta slično, no riječ je o sasvim drugačijoj tehnici izrade. Magarac sa prve fotografije izrađen je prije nekoliko godina, tako da se svi dijelovi naprave posebno, a potom se napune i zašiju iglom. Znam da mnogi ljubitelji kukičanja i amigurumija najviše mrze baš to - trenutak kad kukicu moraju zamijeniti iglom za šivanje. I sama nisam obožavatelj ove faze u izradi amigurumija, pa sam odlučila pojednostaviti cijeli taj proces.



 Ovaj Donkey sa druge fotografije upravo je izašao iz radionice i odlučio pozirati na ovoj stranici. Možda vam se čini da ste ga već vidjeli, ali ne. Potpuno je novi, kao i način izrade, koji će poznavatelji heklanja i amigurumija skužiti. Naime umjesto kukičanja (heklanja) dijelova koji se zatim spajaju iglom, ovaj je Donkey izrađen u jednom komadu. Igla i konac bili su potrebni samo za pričvrstiti uši i njuškicu. Pattern za novog magarca još nisam napisala, ali ću uskoro poraditi na tome. U međuvremenu možete naći pattern za sivog magarčića u mom Etsy shopu:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/210709905/amigurumi-donkey-crochet-pattern-crochet?ref=shop_home_active_9

Amigurumi FOX - FREE crochet pattern


      Na ovom blogu možete pronaći neke besplatne patterne koji su inače objavljeni u mom Etsy shopu Pletionica  https://www.etsy.com/shop/Pletionica  kao PDF file, koji se lako može isprintati. Danas objavljujem crochet pattern za izradu male igračke lisice, također dostupan u Etsy shopu u PDF formatu. Voljela bih čuti vašu reakciju u vezi objave ovih patterna, jer posebno me zanima ima li interesa za uputstva na hrvatskom jeziku. Dosad nisam imala takvih zahtjeva, ali razmišljam o pisanju shema na hrvatskom, pogotovo za kukičane (heklane) igračke i neke druge stvari koje izrađujem, pa me zanima kakva bi bila potražnja na ovom području. Možda objavim i knjigu s amigurumi uputstvima. Koga zanima tema neka mi se slobodno javi u komentarima.
A sad evo obećani FREE crochet pattern, naravno na engleskom, uz Etsy link: https://www.etsy.com/listing/233675794/amigurumi-fox-crochet-pattern-free-owl?ref=shop_home_active_33
