Imagine our delight when we tripped over this adorable kitty, lounging on his owner’s couch!

As you can see from the photos below, the creator was inspired when she saw the picture of the kitten laying backward on the burley owner’s most ample tummy!

So, what does the Crochet term ‘Amigurumi’ mean? This is what Wikipedia has to say -:

“Amigurumi (編みぐるみ ?, lit. crocheted or knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, usually cute stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures.

The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.”
