Yes, we’ve beaten the dead horse with all of our monkey amigurumis–so now we’re moving on to rhinestone tiger amigurumi!! Yay~
We’ve been planning on making this rhinestone tiger amigurumi for a long time now. When we made our trip to Taiwan recently, we especially went to go buy ourselves multiple sheets of multiple-colored rhinestone sheet stickers. They’re supposed to be used to decorate the interior of your car, but who says you can’t use them on anything else?
I started gluing on the rhinestones one by one from the top of the head and worked my way all the way down. It was quite challenging since an amigurumi is not the flattest thing in the world to be gluing things on. I had to be very careful with the placement of the rhinestones too with all the stripey business going on. But it worked somehow! Or at least I forced it too haha.
The idea of covering our tiger amigurumi with rhinestones actually came from a friend of ours. It was a VERY good idea and we’re glad we heeded their suggestion. Wonder if they remember suggesting it?
Remember our first tiger amigurumi? It looks so small compared to the rhinestone tiger amigurumi huh? All the glue and rhinestones really added some pounds to it!
This is what I looked like after gluing on two whole sheets of rhinestones. I don’t know if I really want to do that again…haha. Or maybe I do? What do you think? What would you like to see plastered with rhinestones?!
Thanks for looking! Enjoy some lovely music from our rhinestone tiger amigurumi~

It’s been a while since I crocheted an amigurumi, especially one of my puppy amigurumis, so what better way to celebrate than by revisiting my favorite hobby with a pug amigurumi!
This pug amigurumi was based off my baby Chihuahua amigurumi, with a few tweaks here and there. If you look closely, you’ll notice this pug amigurumi’s paws get a little bigger at the ends to give it more of a cartoony feel. My original pattern was just a straight tube.
I also changed the back legs to be small nubbins, just because I thought it would look cuter that way! My previous pattern had short tubes that you would sew near the back end of the puppy amigurumi. I did a similar look for my Polar Lucibear amigurumi, which was published in a small pamphlet called “Crocheted Amigurumi.” Some people have questioned whether the back legs are wrong, but they indeed are correct as written in the pattern. The back legs are supposed to resemble nubbins for that cuter look, so please go ahead and sew them in place like that! To make this amigurumi a pug amigurumi, I cut out small circles from brown felt for the eyes, and a larger circle for the snout. Such a simple and easy thing to do to change up the look! I’m all about simple and easy things.
So, has anyone gotten into the trend of terrariums lately? Terrariums are super neat! Just the thought of creating your own ecosystem in an enclosed space is pretty awesome. But what if you just suck at taking care of plants? Don’t worry! There’s hope for us yet! Since all we can do is crochet, let’s just make some amigurumi terrariums instead!
Actually this idea came from someone who was paranoid about getting their pug amigurumi dusty…a thought that never crossed my mind before. I guess some people are just super anal and paranoid! But it did make for a really cute idea!
The brown paper trimmings were bought from Daiso. The little hearts came with the trimmings too, so convenient! I also had a random sticker with a dog bowl and bone in it, perfect for decorating, so I had to stick it on the jar. And we picked up a cute pug phone charm on our trip to Taiwan recently too!
Just in case you wanted to see that adorable pug phone charm more close up!
Oh, it broke loose of its jar! How cute.
Now it’s just getting restless!
One last shot! Thanks for looking!

If anyone is having trouble deciding what to crochet…hows about a Valentine’s Day tiger amigurumi? :]
Good idea? Bad idea? Who doesn’t like a tiger amigurumi? Tigers and Valentine’s Day makes perfect sense, right? The truth is we just really wanted to make a pink tiger. <3
It doesn’t look like much, but this tiger amigurumi used up quite a bit of felt. In case you were wondering, there is a total of 22 black felt stripes on this thing…! Never bothered to count it up until now, and now that I have, it’s quite a shocking number haha. o_O
Of course, if there’s a female tiger, there’s got to be a male one too! Ah~so handsome. He’s even waving at you flirtatiously. That little casanova…
Wonder what kind of chick he’ll pick up today~?
Ah, looks like he’s found the cutest Valentine’s Day tiger amigurumi he’s ever laid his eyes on. O_O!! How will he get her attention? Any guesses?
Yep, you called it. Failed attempt at throwing the heart plushie at her. Too bad~
Oh, but what’s this? Seems like she heard something fumbling around behind her!
“I think you dropped this” she says “here you go!” <3
And what do you know, they’re together now! Yay! Happy ending. The end.
The heart plushies were made out of felt by the way. If you were even bothering to wonder haha. I made a crapload of them just for these tiger amigurumi. Did they serve their purpose well?
Have a good one this year! Spend it with your loved ones like these Valentine’s Day tiger amigurumi <3<3<3!!!

One of the most frequent questions I get on my blog is “Where can I buy your monkey amigurumi pattern? I can’t find it for sale on your website.”
Honestly, that darned monkey is one of the most popular things I’ve ever crocheted and every time I hear that question my heart sinks a little. That’s because it’s not for sale… at least not on my website.
You see, I shipped off my dear Ayo and Kiki monkey amigurumis to CrochetMe so I could participate in a contest to be included in their 2012 amigurumi calendar and they ended up selecting my monkeys! Here they are posing cutely for the calendar:
So the short answer is I can’t sell it on my website, but you can get it from the Interweave Store and it costs $8.99. Now you might be saying, that’s a lot to pay for a monkey amigurumi pattern and I would tell you you’re absolutely right! But the CrochetMe ebook actually contains the patterns for all the animals in the calendar! So it works out to less than $0.75 a pattern which in my opinion is pretty good.
Read what real people are saying about it:
I love this calendar! The patterns are innovative, fun to make & easy to understand. The finished results have been wonderful. I know the children I give these little lovelies to for Christmas will enjoy them. Thanks for putting this calendar together. It has been a joy to use already!!
I loved each and every amigurumi pattern. Each one is a winner and oh so cute! I’m proud to be included among such talented people. Aah! I’m going to enjoy making each of these sweeties. xoxoxoxo
This was great have made a lot of the animals and everyone loves them
The full list of dolls from the calendar (from left to right):
- Pucker the Goldfish
- Lovey the Lovely
- Chiyo the Mouse
- Ellie the Giraffe
- Roy the Gardener
- Ayo & Kiki the Monkeys
- Sunny the Bunny
- Frankie the Lobster
- Pixel the Puppy
- Buttons McZipperson
- Terrence the Turkey
- Polar Lucibear
To (hopefully) make it up to you a little, I have an exclusive coupon code you can use to get 15% off. Just use code WEAVE15 at checkout to apply the discount. It will work on your entire purchase if you plan on getting some crocheting supplies while you’re at it.
Now as to why I can’t sell my monkey pattern here on my website: I can’t because I signed a contract not to. In order to be in their calendar, I had to give up rights to the pattern and agree not to sell it myself… *sigh*. It makes sense since they are selling the ebook and calendar themselves and any competition would affect their sales. At least it’s in good hands in a good home for a reasonable price.
So support the Interweave Store and buy the ebook if you like my monkey pattern so much! It makes a great gift and 12 adorable amigurumi crafts.
