Amigurumipatterns.net has done it again! They organized a fantastic contest for people who like to design their own cute little critters.
Did I hear Monsters?
We LOVE monsters!

The branch of this crochet hook was carefully handpicked in the forest on a lovely walk.

You know the feeling. You’ve just discovered a new amigurumi crochet pattern (=crocheted stuffed animal) and you’re super excited about it. There’s no doubt about it, this person is gonna make that super cute animal. And oh my… those eyes… they are so beautiful! I want one! I want one!
Some time later you find yourself running to your local yarn shop to find yourself the perfect yarn. You buy a bit too much, as usual, but it’s just such a lovely yarn. Next item on the list are the eyes. Ooh… those beautiful radiant eyes… But after quite a search in your local and less local craft shops, you end up back at home feeling a bit… lost. You did not find the safety eyes you hoped for. The kind lady of the craft shop suggested something else and you bought them… but they’re just not the same. You wanted to have something… different. And as motivated as you where to start this new crochet project, you’re now a bit less excited to start.
Recognizable? Don’t worry, because that’s all to the past from now on!
What if I tell you that you will find the exact same eyes as the designer used (or even better)? You’ll have to shop somewhere else then your local craft shop, though. You’ll be amazed by all the gorgeous and unique creations that are sold online. I selected 3 great shops for you. Let’s have a look.
