New Crocheting Trend: Amigurumi Minions!

Amigurumi has become the newest trend in the crafting world as a brand new crocheting trend. Everyone is doing it, cute patterns are everywhere, so the big question is: What is amigurumi exactly? Amigurumi is a Japanese originated word, derived from the syllables ami (made with knitting needle) and nuigurumi (filled toys). There are lots of different patterns that you can try out, but probably the most popular ones are the amigurumi minions and no other model.
