My first back to school craft for this year – Bunny Holder Amigurumi. They can be done by using some stash yarns and the free crochet pattern below.
This bunny holder amigurumi is not quite a usual “amigurumi” that we stuffed with poly-fill. I crochet a cover following the shape’s of the vitagen bottle, then decorated it into a bunny. It is an amigurumi craft because of the tight stitches and its toy-look, but not quite an amigurumi because it is not stuffed. Therefore, I called it “non-stuff” amigurumi 🙂
I started making amigurumi since I know how to crochet, some 30 years ago during my childhood years. I wasn’t even told the crochet I did has a name “amigurumi” which was meant for crochet stuffing toys. With the affluence of Japanese craft, the first non-stuff amigurumi I made was using this empty vitagen bottle. I remember I also made a bunny out of that, similar to this bunny but of course not so well did. Too bad I didn’t keep that precious first amigurumi piece to show you. Well, it is not a nice good looking one to show off, but it was my first piece which deserved a place in my craft museum. What do you think a 10-year-old school kid can produce on her very first crochet toy?
I hope you like this bunny holder amigurumi. It doesn’t need to be for putting pencil, it can be used as a utensil holder for toddler’s utensil, or as a vase for flowers, or just anything you can think of.
