Here is a pattern made with 2 of my favorite things, Amigurumi & Bright Colors! Introducing my Jellyfish Amigurumi Pattern!
I used Lion Brand Ice Cream Yarn and what can I say but that ‘I’M IN LOOOOOOOVE’. The weight and texture of this yarn is absolutely perfect for amigurumi. And, the variety of colors that it is available in is just perfect! I think that this yarn was made just for these Jellyfish.
Recently, the few little markets that I have set up at to sell my handmade items, I have sold mostly all of my amigurumi Octopi. At the last one I did, I sold all of my Chunky Octopi! They have very popular with the kids and even the adults like them too.
About the Felt Eyes
For those of y’all wondering about the felt eyes.
I use my Cricut to make my felt eyes. It is really an easy project to do. If you would like to learn how, I have a full written, picture & video tutorial that you can find HERE. These go great on all of your amigurumi projects. I absolutely love using them!
I did make these a little smaller than the ones in the blog post. I made these 3/4” wide and then sized down the white middles. Since these Jellyfish were smaller than the chunky Octopi.
