when you end your ami, how do you finish off? like where do you put the extra yarn at the end, if you know what i mean?
Yeah i think i know what you mean, its the annoying piece of yarn at the end isn’t it?
I normally use a darning needle and sort of hide the yarn by into the stuffing and then pulling the yarn to the other side and then cutting it from the other side
Its similar to what June is explaining in this video here about hiding the embroidery thread http://www.planetjune.com/blog/amigurumi-faces-secure-stitching/
I hoped that helped!
~Last reminder for giveaway!!! Closing date is TONIGHT!!!~
Absolute last post to remind everyone that my first giveaway ends at midnight TONIGHT!!!! (thats Londons time zone in case you are wondering)
I’ve had a really great response so far and I’m really excited to announce the two winners! Its not too late, you can still reblog the original post here (not this post please as this would not count) and be in the chance to win one of my custom made amigurumi!!
The next post would be to announce the winners!
May I also remind everyone to keep their ask box open so I can contact you!
In the new Harvest Moon Puppy pattern, do you cut and fasten off the yarn when you change colors, or do you do something else? Or in color changes in general? Because I usually cut and fasten off because I don't know how to do anything else, but it seems there's another way?
I also used to cut off the yarn and ties knots too but now I usually strand my yarn (I think thats what its called)
So when I change yarn colour, I’ll just crochet the new one and leave the old one then I will pick the old one up again if I need to
Im not very good at explaining-I think this explains it quite well
So my first giveaway ends TOMORROW at midnight!!!! I will be choosing the winners on Tuesday!! ^_^
So if you want to be in the chance of winning a custom made ami of your choice (see here for all the the ami I have made) then please reblog the original post here!! (not this post please as it would not count!)
~New pattern up tomorrow & BIG reminder about my giveaway!!!~
I don’t have any new ami to show you guys as I’ve been giving my hands a wee break because they’ve begun to hurt a bit from all the crocheting I’ve been doing but they are a lot better now so I might be making some new ami during the easter weekend! (fingers crossed)
But I have typed the pattern for my harvest moon puppy and the pattern will be up on my blog tomorrow! :)
Also can I just remind everyone that I am still doing a giveaway (closing date is THIS Monday coming!!) so if you like my ami and would like to try and win the chance of having your own custom made ami then rules of the giveaway can be found here!!
