I first had the idea to make a set of six custom safari amigurumi animals for my nephew, Charlie, in February of 2017. Two months later I had patterns created for a lion, hippo, zebra and giraffe, but I was intimidated by the thought of making an elephant and monkey and went on to create many other animal patterns in the interim.
Here we are over a year later with lots of practice and new skills under my belt, and I’m finally completing the safari set. ? I’ll be publishing the monkey pattern next week!
