Do you remember Bob Ross,the eternally calm and contented t.v. painter? For 12 years he showed PBS viewers how to paint a landscape in thirty minutes or less. The show ended in 1994, but you can still catch him in syndication…or better yet, crochet him!
Allison Hoffman of Crafty Is Cool makes Amigurumi dolls of your favorite characters. Amigurumi is the the Japanese art of crocheting small animals or toys. Nuigurumi is a Japanese word that means stuffed doll, but it refers to sewn fabric items. Ami is from a word that means crocheted or knitted.
These guys look pretty familiar too!
