My husband and I put up our tree last week, and like the trees of many newly-married couples, ours was lacking ornaments. Especially lacking was an angel ornament. So I sat down to figure out an amigurumi pattern for an angel ornament that could also double as a doll.
Here she is with the other two ornaments I designed. Now Manly says he wants a whole village of amigurumi ornaments and keeps asking for a Santa one.
As always, this new pattern is available in my etsy shop. Enjoy!

Here's my latest amigurumi attempt. I was trying to make a Christmas bear, but that didn't go so well. Nonetheless, this little bear was born on a very cold Chicago winter day.
I think every amigurumi designer should have at least one bear in their pattern batch. I wanted something cute and sweet but with some personality. So much depends upon how the face comes out. I think I spend more time on the face than on crocheting the whole doll.
The removable scarf was an afterthought, but I think it makes the bear look extra cozy.
As always, the pattern is available in my etsy shop.
