  1. AmigurumiWizard

    August 23, 2012 by Peter

    You may have the question; why AmigurumiWizard?

    When I started crocheting Amigurumi, I used books and the internet to learn it AND keep getting better at it. Once I was confident enough, I started to sketch characters to eventually turn them into Amigurumi toys. It was hard at first, but it went pretty well. I learned how to write them down so I could turn them into real Amigurumi patterns. That just felt like magic, being able to go from a sketch to an actual toy, and even write a pattern how to achieve it.
    At that point, I wanted to keep growing in Amigurumi, and I wanted to share my patterns with the world. That is where AmigurumiWizard was born.

    Like I said, begin able to dream about cute characters and ideas, sketch them out and crochet them feels like magic. So I came up with AmigurumiWizard which felt like my own little “brand”. I started to work out some more sketches to patterns, to sell them on Etsy. (You can find my shop here) It’s not my goal to get a lot of money out of it. It’s my goal to keep being able to buy supplies like yarn, filling and safety eyes and support other designers like me to buy cute patterns from them too!

    I also decided for myself, I wanted to turn AmigurumiWizard in some sort of platform where I could talk about Amigurumi. Like projects I’m working on, patterns I’ve made (paid and free. Yes, you’ve heard that right. Coming as soon as possible!) and patterns I’ve found (again, paid and free ones). Also sharing tips I find. When I started crochet Amigurumi I learned so much from the internet, that I wanted to pass that knowledge. :)

    So, here you are, as you might understand already. ;)

    As you could read in my first post, I expanded my “platform” a bit so I could talk about some more things than Amigurumi. But now you know what you can expect crochet / Amigurumi wise! :)
