Tickled Blue

The artist behind Bluebaby, known only as Amanda creates primarily crocheted amigarumi dolls which remind me a lot of Anime characters, and other crocheted things. She also carries a few pieces of jewelry.

“My usual screen name is briensbaby” says Amanda, “(Brien being my hubby's name) but I wanted to do something different for my Etsy shop. Blue is my favorite color, so i just stuck that in place of 'brien' and voila! bluebaby was born!”

Amanda at first wanted to make a whole body for her stuffed dolls, but one night, before attaching the limbs, she thought that the little guy she was holding looked cute just how he was...with no arms or legs, so she decided to leave him that way, and apparently her customers agreed, as they have now started to sell!

Her creatures have attitude with names like, Evil Elmer
Crochet Dude,

Stanley Stoner,

and Pooping Pete.
Some of them have zany, or mischievous-looking eyes made from felt. These are sure to tickle your funnybone.
She makes a variety of styles of hats that are both stylish and comfortable.

Etsy is the first venue where she has ever tried to sell her work. In the past she has given her items away to family members as presents, but now that her husband is the only one working outside the home she is using her talents to make some money on the side.

Amanda makes her items the best way she knows how, and devotes lots of hard work, concentration, and faith to each one in hopes her work will pay off.

Watch her Etsy store for more winterwear and afghans this holiday season.
