During November, on the Facebook page, I have repeatedly talked about the circus themed amigurumi contest hosted by Amigurumi Patterns. I did not want to miss it this year and I did it. I got two entries… I can not believe it!
(If you have participated, leave a comment or write me, I’m curious!)
Before presenting the bird and rodent I want to explain briefly what this contest is.
Every year, three years now, the website amigurumipatterns.net presents a theme for a new contest, the only rules are: amigurumi and originality. And the prizes are really, really, irresistible, are the perfect excuse to take the time to design and make a new quirky amigurumi character.
This year’s theme is Circus. I’m not passionate about the real circus, the one with real animals, but a circus with wool, cotton and plastic eyes puppets that do somersaults in a fire of red and orange tissue paper is much more in my comfort zone and was fun to think about subjects even more weird than usual: A parrot on the unicycle and a stilter mouse fond of popcorn.
