Thread blunt needle with a long piece of Coffee yarn and stitch the "Chocolate Chips" according to your taste all over the circle for the Back Cookie of the rattle.
To make a "Chip" simple make 3 small straight stitches across a chosen sc or from center of one sc to center of next sc, either way works fine. You don't have to Fasten off, simple move around, without pulling the yarn, because that would
deform the "Cookie" and pull in the other "Chips" that you have made. When you are done, fasten off and weave in tail.

Thread blunt needle with Coffee and stitch "Chocolate Chips" as before but only around the last 4 rounds of the Front Cookie, and more scattered than you did on the Back, to give room for the Features of the Face. Fasten off, weave in tail.

Note- The opening that we just made is for securing the rattle Handle better so that Yu-Yum's Had won't flop badly.

Let's Put Silkie Together-
Put center Cherry Ice Cream portion on top of Back Cookie square. Top this with the Front Cookie. Thread a blunt needle with a large Coffee length of yarn (as long as you can personally handle it without getting it tangled), and using the fingers of your opposite hand to "pinch" the edge of Silkie's three-layered Body togeher, begin to stitch the three layers into one.
Stitch from Front to Back across the 3 layers of thickness, giving a little tug as you finish going through them, and pushing the bulkiness of hte middle layer towards the middle and flattening the edges as making them match by tugging a little at the Cherry stuffing. You want Silkie's "pillowy" chubby cutness to be down his middle, so, pull a little to match the edges, squeeze them flat with the fingers of your opposite hand, and stitch through, tugging a bit at the end.
Go in and out each thickness and sc stitch all around, but do not make a single stitch over the Cherry ice cream. Make your stitches firm so that the toy will not fall apart with use. Once you have gone all around Silkie's Body, fasten off and weave in tail.

Attach stuffed Arms and Legs as seen in photos. Do not sew the limbs to the chocolate Cookie side but to the edge of the Cherry ice cream stuffing. Fasten off, weave in tails.

Done!

Sheeppers the Funmigurumi Lamb Rattle

Best Blog Tips

If you love Amigurumi, you have found your home! That is what we're all about. Funmigurumi are a special kind of Amigurumi. To be a Funmigurumi, a toy has to be fun, it has to be funny, it has to mean love. So if you enjoy making cute and lovable Amis, this is your place!


Sheepers is Woolly's baby brother. When I made Woolly, I wanted to make a male version of her but couldn't get to it right away. Finally, here's her kid brother. I made him in a smaller scale. This will work wonderfully well for those of you who love little Amis, and for those of you who are making toys for babies and toddlers. When you make these, please remember your local hospital!

Note- This is a funny stitch, sometimes it just becomes so bulky that less is best. So keep measuring your strip against the Front strip that will go in front of it, to make sure they match in size. If you tend to crochet loosely and you have the exact match with less rows, wonderful, then stop right there. If you’re like me, that do not crochet loosely nor too tight, then make sure you complete all the rows until you get a perfect fit.
