Elise’s Christmas Present

I was looking through photos of things I’ve crocheted and realized I haven’t posted photos of what I made for my sister Elise for Christmas. The very first crochet animal I ever made was a horse, and I gave it to her. She lugged Cherry Pie (as she named it) around, dragged it in the dirt, literally loved it to death. It wasn’t wonderfully constructed to begin with—its neck was never completely attached because I had NO idea what I was doing. Before Christmas Mama went through toys with the girls and cleaned things out, and poor Cherry Pie had to be thrown away. So I purposed to make Elise another horse for Christmas.

I used the horse pattern in Annie Obaachan’s book Super Cute. And I must say, I think it is the best amigurumi I have made yet! If you’d like to see any photos closer up, just click on them. Elise named her new favorite animal Cookie Dough.
