It’s been a while since I crocheted an amigurumi, especially one of my puppy amigurumis, so what better way to celebrate than by revisiting my favorite hobby with a pug amigurumi!
This pug amigurumi was based off my baby Chihuahua amigurumi, with a few tweaks here and there. If you look closely, you’ll notice this pug amigurumi’s paws get a little bigger at the ends to give it more of a cartoony feel. My original pattern was just a straight tube.
I also changed the back legs to be small nubbins, just because I thought it would look cuter that way! My previous pattern had short tubes that you would sew near the back end of the puppy amigurumi. I did a similar look for my Polar Lucibear amigurumi, which was published in a small pamphlet called “Crocheted Amigurumi.” Some people have questioned whether the back legs are wrong, but they indeed are correct as written in the pattern. The back legs are supposed to resemble nubbins for that cuter look, so please go ahead and sew them in place like that! To make this amigurumi a pug amigurumi, I cut out small circles from brown felt for the eyes, and a larger circle for the snout. Such a simple and easy thing to do to change up the look! I’m all about simple and easy things.
So, has anyone gotten into the trend of terrariums lately? Terrariums are super neat! Just the thought of creating your own ecosystem in an enclosed space is pretty awesome. But what if you just suck at taking care of plants? Don’t worry! There’s hope for us yet! Since all we can do is crochet, let’s just make some amigurumi terrariums instead! :D
Actually this idea came from someone who was paranoid about getting their pug amigurumi dusty…a thought that never crossed my mind before. I guess some people are just super anal and paranoid! :P But it did make for a really cute idea!
The brown paper trimmings were bought from Daiso. The little hearts came with the trimmings too, so convenient! I also had a random sticker with a dog bowl and bone in it, perfect for decorating, so I had to stick it on the jar. And we picked up a cute pug phone charm on our trip to Taiwan recently too!
Just in case you wanted to see that adorable pug phone charm more close up!
Oh, it broke loose of its jar! How cute. :)
Now it’s just getting restless!
One last shot! Thanks for looking!
