Chibi

For Christmas I decided to make my amazing boss and owner of JapanLA, Jamie, an amigurumi of her adorable tubby cat, Chibi.


For a while I have been wanting to use the brushed crochet technique, where you take a pet slicker and brush your amigurumi like crazy to achieve this fuzzy texture. I realize now I should have taken a before and after picture. I also obtained a bunch of different animal and colored eyes, and coincidentally had a similar matching eye color:






The brushing compromises the yarn to a point where the fastening of the extremities becomes a little jenky, so that is something I'll have to master. I couldn't completely do her cat justice, but I hope there are enough traces of similarities to make it identifiable!
