On a whim, almost exactly a year ago, I bought a book by Anja Toonen called Fat Fabulous Ladies full of patterns of wonderful amigurumi women. And then, as is often the case, it sat on the shelf waiting for it’s moment.
I started work on my woman in mid July and if you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen some progress shots and so I will just share the wonder of the finished item here.
This is not her best angle! Look how lovely she is when I turned her around and gave her a cocktail!
That cocktail was most definitely the most fiddly thing I have ever made, I swore. A lot. Here it is next to a drink of mine!
But she does not belong inside on my desk! She should be outside, enjoying the sun by a pool 🙂
I love how she turned out and am sorely tempted by some of the other patterns in the book but in a little while, after I’ve forgotten how frustrating I can find tiny bits of amigurumi!
