Amigurumi, the Japanese art of crocheting miniature dolls really hit the US in the early 2000s, and soon after Etsy opened its virtual doors to sellers, amigurumi dolls became their number one selling product. I can easily see why-you can't deny the allure of these cuties!
Etsy seller Knittingdreams, an artist located in Spain, handcrafts each crocheted bear to order. They take about 3 weeks to complete-certainly worth the wait, but don't forget to think ahead when planning that next gift. The incredible amount of detail put into each bear is simply amazing. Knittingdreams describes her creatures as coming "from the world of dreams", a beautiful sentiment to be passed onto any child.
The furry mohair gives each doll that perfect "just rolled out of bed" look, adding a hint of coziness and personality. The adorable bears have equally adorable names like, Timu, Gilbert, Miu and Pupi.
Knittingdreams has an assortment of animals available including teddy bears, bunnies and puppies, ranging in price from $25 to $36. See them all on her Etsy Shop!
