Today I’d like to share something very special with you. I was asked by LoveCrafts.com (formerly LoveCrochet), to design a simple and easy crochet pattern for Operation Gratitude. What is Operation Gratitude, you ask? Well, it’s a wonderful care package company that sends care packages nation-wide to soldiers, veterans, wounded war heroes, first responders, and military families.
Operation Gratitude has sent out over 2 million care packages since 2003. This year, their goal is to send out over half a million!
Meet Theodore the Bunny and his cousin, Walter! Theodore and Walter love carrots and are often scolded for snitching carrots from the garden. They are the best of friends and do everything together. Spring is their favorite time of the year and they love nothing more than being able to romp around in the fresh green grass!
**NOTE: You can find an ad-free, beautifully formatted and concise version of this pattern available in my shop HERE. Supporting my website in this way ensures that I’ll be able to release many more free patterns in the future! :) *h
Meet Lyla the Lamb! Lyla is a bouncy little lamb who is always sticking her nose where it shouldn’t be. Lyla has a way with others, though, and can make friends with just about anyone. She’s even good friends with the sheepdogs!

Hello! Today I’m happy to bring you the second addition to my mini farm animal series! This one is Cooper the Rooster! Some of you might be familiar with Cooper already as he was part of my 100 amigurumi countdown a couple years back AND he was also the first pattern I ever released! Now, since he’s part of the farm animal series, I’ve decided to give his pattern away for free!
So meet Cooper, the cutest (and certainly the most huggable), rooster in the coop! Cooper is a little bit shy, but in spite of that, he still loves to spend time with his friends. (That means YOU!)
This adorable, beginner-friendly book by Etsy seller, Mohu, will guide you through the basics of making amigurumi! Perfect for kids or someone who still hasn’t mastered the basics! (This is not a kit, just a book to teach you the basics.) Find the book HERE.

I know it’s been forever since I posted about the first two extreme amis I designed for Premier Yarns, but I still have one more member to introduce to you! I figured better late than never, right?
And now that Christmas is just around the corner, wouldn’t these extreme amis make the ultimate Christmas gifts? And the kits would surely make the best Christmas gifts for the crocheters in your life! You can find all three kits HERE.
Over the last two years, it has become apparent to me that I will never be able to take on as many custom orders as I would like to. I get messages from people almost on a daily basis wanting me to make them one of my amis. About 99.9% of the time I end up saying “no” because I just don’t have the time anymore to take custom orders while at the same time giving pattern designing the attention it needs. And as I work on expanding my blog and website, custom orders keep taking a back seat. Continue reading Become A Storyland Amis Maker
And here is the second extreme ami that I designed for Premier Yarns! Meet Blossom the Bunny!
When Blossom was a baby, the other bunnies used to make fun of her because her ears were so long. After a while, Blossom learned to ignore what the other bunnies thought about her and embraced her uniqueness. (A lesson we all need to learn!)
