My first attempt for amigurumi

With the leftover yarn from my daughter's little purse I made a teddy bear.I did not fallow any pattern because I am not very good at that.I just fallowed my intuition and it turned out pretty good.I had fun creating the face but the hardest part for me was to figure out how to make the paws.I tried a couple of ideas that did not work and ended making them one at a time and sewing them to the body.
My daughter loves it and plays with it very often.
It is about 10 inch tall.

Fiber art-a purse for a little girl

I made this little purse for my daughter .After she saw the purse I had made for myself she wanted me to make one for her.She loves it and she brings it with whenever we go shopping together although she has tons of store-bought purses.

The surprise package

One of the most exciting presents my daughter got for her birthday was the surprise package.I got the idea from . She got it from somebody else/Gina/.Anyway thank you, guys,for the idea.My daughter just loved it and her friends enjoyed watching her opening it.She said she hoped she would get more of those.
I called it Surprise Package because I could not achieve the perfect shape of Gina's Surprise Ball.Maybe the next time I have to try with a different paper.
