LuvlyGurumi Pattern Giveaway! {Closed}

Good news!

I e-mailed my post about the little crocheted lamb to the shop owner, Lyly, of LuvlyGurumi, and she decided to offer 5 free patterns to one of my lucky readers! I wish I could win!iusb_760x100_7863170

If you haven’t heard of amigurumi, it’s a word for knitted or crocheted stuffed dolls. Lyly sells PDF crochet patterns with easy instructions and pictures to make these lovely dolls. In her own words, “One special day, I discovered amigurumi and it was instant love. Everything made me go ‘Awww’ and a smile would quickly appear on my face. I decided then that I had to learn how to make these cuties myself. A couple months later, I was doing exactly that… and now that I’ve started, I simply can’t stop.”

Just look at some of the cuties in her shop and see if you can keep from saying, “Awww.”il_570xN_231377014I bought the pattern for this adorable lamb and had so much fun making it.il_570xN_231377150This lion is definitely the next one I want to make.il_570xN_233804654How adorable are these bunnies in little hoodies?

  1. I love the bunnies with the hoodies. I have LuvlyGurumi shop in my Etsy favs (because I've had my eye on their patterns for a while!). And I follow The Spare Time Continuum already which is how I found this fantastic giveaway :D

  2. I love the ones you put up, but the seal and the bee are adorable!

  3. I added the shop to my Etsy favorites!


    There are too many to choose! I love the snowman one, the penguin one, the little lamb and the bunnies. There's something about that little hood that is just too cute!

  5. I'm already a follower. :)

  6. I love the lamb one. Especially the one with the black and grey that you made! It reminds me of the lambs my sister had at her house this winter.

  7. Thanks for posting these adorable pictures. I have never heard of these before. So cute! I think the little lion is one of my favorites. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I win. : )

  8. Oh, so hard to choose! I already told you I love the lamb in the colors you chose, but the lion, penguin and froggy are so cute too!
