Aren’t these little matryoshka amigurumi cute?

They are from the book Little Tiny Amigurumi, which is available from superbuzzy.
Anyway, since I am trying to figure out this whole crochet thing, I thought I’d attempt to make one of these little guys.

Aiyaaa! Pass the Visine! My eyes, my eyes! They are so bloodshot! Well, I didn’t have the proper felt material for the eyes, so I made do with what I have. It doesn’t look at all like a matryoshka. I still think it’s kind of cute, albeit in a creepy way, but whatever. Peter looked at it and asked, “What the h*ll is that?” and then he suggested giving it to Deedle to rip to shreds.
Hey, so Kelly and I are off to Salt Lake City for the big trade show! This means superbuzzy orders placed between this very second and Sunday won’t ship out until early next week. Have a good weekend, and I will try not to drink too much in Salt Lake City, ha ha.

    I agree, 90% cute, 10% creepy. I haven’t seen that book yet, thanks for posting!

    He kinda reminds me of this guy from Spirited Away. His name is No Face, which is ironic because he does have a face…sort of.

    Dear Mariko,
    I love your blog and look at it often, it is always a cheer up for me, a long time art and crafter who got derailed by motherhood and full time work. I still try and try, collect materials. I love to recycle/defile/rework things that I come across.
    I was moved to write to you tonight and thank you for : Amigurumi, because it made me laugh and laugh (especially when reading your description) and that is so what I needed after a day of uncountable hours of work. Well, most of it was fun, but it was work in that I was not moving on my own clock, but rather, the city’s, my son’s, and my husband’s. It is all by choice, my life situation; but dude, thank you for your site or blog, I love it, and I love your attitude. If you ever get to Oakland, I’ll show you my garden/grove. That is where the shards of my old crafting energy has been going these last few years.
    I also know some great restaurants and bakeries around here. I know you don’t know me, but please consider me a friend you have in Oakland, CA.
    A hearty thanks,
    Alice
    PS: I imagine your dad is having great fun with the ancestors.

    Somehow it’s kind of a a Day of the Dead matreska. I don’t know what it is, I keep looking at the ones on the cover of the book and yours and what is different, I don’t know. But I love Day of the Dead stuff so I do think it’s creepy cute.

  5. Looks a wee bit stoned! Not that I know what that looks like of course :P

    Wow, it’s the ‘Lemony Snicket’ Amigurumi!

    It looks like Towlie the stoned towel from South Park!

    Don’t be discouraged. I think it is really cute and at least you gave it a try. I still have all my supplies and have yet to try crocheting. Have fun in Salt Lake City.

    lol, it reminds me of the ghost character in that japanese animated movie about the child who goes across the river to the underworld…

  10. gaile says:

    Oh, and now I scroll down and see that Kit has the same impression!

  11. Asaknitter says:

    Oh so cute! Have fun in Salt lake City – don’t forget the air is thin up there…

  12. That’s it! That’s it! I couldn’t place it until Kit hit the nail on the head: I think it looks like the spirit from Spirited Away, too! Ha! You’ve got me laughing! Good attempt, Mariko! Of course, I haven’t even tried it, so who knows what I’d get if I did? They look very cute on the book though.

  13. ellen says:

    I have to agree with Peter – It’s creepy. Maybe the perfect bridge between zombie and amigurumi?

  14. John says:

    Sorry Mariko, but I’m totally with Peter on this one! It looks like the poison symbol face turning a frown into a smile to trick unsuspecting children. Just remember to “ace” the buttons before Deedle gets his teeth into it.
