It's the last day of my deadline, and I'm really tired! In the meantime here are some vintage amigurumi-type animals. I googled it, but I can't seem to find out what these used to be called, other than crocheted animals, but they seem to be the same thing as the Japanese amigurumi animals that are so popular these days. I bought these at an antique store, and the owner told me that they used to be given away as prizes at the Canadian National Exhibition. The little dog has wire in his legs.
I was so amazed at all the little details, and I love the little brown animal partly because I can't even figure out what he is, he's just plain cute is all.
p.s. thanks for all the nice comments about my pink rabbit! The needle book in the picture was actually in my very first post ever, and the namesake for my blog.
