Amigurumi is a Japanese word for knitted stuffed toy. They can be crocheted though, too. I crocheted an elephant and a penguin following a pattern off of the Lion Brand website. They turned out pretty cute. I'm giving both of them to a couple of friends.

On another note, my fabric swap package arrived the other day, and I will (hopefully) take pictures and post about that soon.

Also, has anyone every appliqued or decorated a hoodie or sweatshirt before? I was thinking it woul be neat to do some for the forestry senior team, but I've never pictures of one before.

I haven't done a sweatshirt, but I have done some appliquing recently. It is not all that hard, the only thing you might have trouble with is that obviously those are stretchy fabrics. It would probably work fine if you keep it small though.

I have a pretty good tutorial thing that has a step by step process for basic applique. If you want to email me I can send it to you.
