Sunday Spotlight: Momorave Geeky Cute Crochet

Sunday Spotlight Chic Pixel

Who doesn’t love some geeky crafts? Since I wasn’t able to include any crafters in my nerdy gift guide this year, I thought it would be nice to highlight a handmade in case anyone wanted to pick up a something with a more individualized touch this holiday season. That’s why this week’s Sunday Spotlight features a geeky crafter named momorave who makes some darn cute amigurumi!

For the unfamiliar, amigurumi is the Japanese word for knitted or crocheted stuffed animals. The majority of momorave’s amigurumi consist of “derpy” versions of various Pokémon such as the Espeon pictured above that are sure to bring a smile to your face! She also has a number of bird amigurumi that aren’t especially nerdy, but are still tremendously cute.

If you’d to pick something up from momorave’s shop for Christmas, be sure to do so before December 1st. You can also follow her on Instagram to see all her latest craft projects!

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.

    She had some really questionable tags.
    “useless Pokemon”? Huh? *insert Pokemon rage from 25 years back*. But cute indeed ^^

    Wish I still had my Totoro amigurumi, it’s still in a packing box somewhere somewhere 🙁

    • Oh no I didn’t even see the tags! That’s not nice 🙁

      I’ve always wanted to try amigurumi! I’ve done some knitting but I always find it hard to remember the technique, haha

        My hands weren’t created to do such delicate work…..I say 🙂 it’s just one of those things I like to have but have no interest in making myself 🙂 But you should go for it Anne. Go for it and then incase you’re worried or unsure you could always send then to me and I promise to either keep them or keep them 😀
