Juggling Pears {+ Groovy Buttons}

I sold one of my pear softies to Richard’s colleague and he made a rather odd request for a custom order. He wanted pears to juggle. Yip. You heard me right. Juggling pears! So I modified my original pattern to come up with these:
Juggling Amigurumi Pears
Juggling Pears
Pattern: Amigurumi Pears
Yarn: Panda Zoomy
Hook: I/9 (5.5mm)
Mods: Increased till round 3; 3 rounds of pear’s side; decreased for 2 rounds; 2 rounds of sc all; decreased and fasten off.

He was very pleased with the juggling pears but he didn’t end up juggling them. His teenage daughter saw the pears and wanted them straightaway. Her dad already gave her a full size pear softie but she wanted the little ones to give to each of her BFF to remember their high school years together. She graduates this year. 🙂 Isn’t that sweet?

And no, this isn’t the female version of Cousin It gone commando. Hehe… It’s another custom order which I haven’t started on yet. It’s for Ysoline, the now famous girl with the Amigurumi Pears surrounding her. She loves pink and that’s exactly what she’ll get – a pink pear, just like the one Mel is making.

I have also created a one-stop info page for the Amigurumi Pears:

Check out the page and look out for the cool buttons I’ve made. I’m extremely proud of them.

If you would like customised buttons for your website, send me an email: me@salihan.com. I’d be happy to make a couple for you in exchange for something pretty from your shop. 🙂

Have a great weekend everyone!

    That little trio of pears is soooo sweet! I would love to have those to put in my fruit bowl. It would make a great start to every day being greeted by those smiling faces first thing in the morning. Great job as usual, Salihan 🙂
