FO Friday – Snail amigurumi 🐌 

Happy Friday!

Sometimes, I really feel like I have issues focussing on only 1 project at the time… I know that many of you feel the same way, so at least I’m happy that I’m not alone. 

I’ve discovered recently that I really like making my own amigurumi. So, when I feel unmotivated with my bigger current projects, designing new, cute crochet toys  seems like the perfect alternative! This only took me a few hours in front of TV, and I’m hoping to write a pattern for it soon. 

This little guy started out as a slug. But I had planned on giving him a house to bring along, so I set out to crochet a shell. 


And here it is, all set up with his brand new home on its back πŸ™‚


What do you guys do when you’re getting bored with big projects? Power through of get distracted like I do?

  1. He is soooo cute!! I tend to have one more complex project and one simple project on the go. Then I can mox andatch depending on brain power… drives my husband nuts as it means there is projects everywhere!

  2. That snail is adorable!! You could also use just the shell pattern to make seashells like nautilus shells! The mandala I’m making is a great project for doing between other projects. I do just a few rounds at a time and they’re each so different that I can’t imagine getting bored. πŸ™‚

  3. Your snail is sooo cute! It’s great that they don’t take too long to make. Can you post a picture of all the little amigurumi collection you’re building? πŸ™‚

    Haha, just last night when I switched from one cross-stitch kit to another my boyfriend had this wide-eyed look and he asked me how many kits/projects I was working on currently because I can’t stick to just one for long. I often rotate through my projects..or just start a new one XD.

    really cute, does he have a name?
    Yes, I always have several projects on the go, in all my crafts, one big for when I want a challenge, and something smaller when I want to relax and get a quick fix.

    • No, he has no name yet, I need to think about it πŸ™‚ I totally understand wanting a quick fix, so satisfying to finish a project 😊
