Amineko for my cat

This is an Amineko cat that I finished tonight! 😀 The pattern is found in a book by Nekoyama, called ”Hello, my name is Amineko: The story of a Crafty Crochet Cat”. This is what the book looks like:

Years ago I crocheted an Amineko. When I got my cat, Miss Nelson (or just Nelson), I gave it to her. She is now 10 months and the crocheted cat looks really old and beaten up. It has lost its eyes and mouth. At the time, I filled the Amineko with raw rice, because it said so in the book. I don’t know how many times we have found rice on the floor. This time I filled with cotton only (but not all parts are filled).

I am sure Nelson will like her new friend even more in the future. She must get used to it now. She has already played a little with the new toy. Here are a few more pictures of the crocheted cat, including the old one, which was brown.

The new and the old. Same yarn, only different colors.

In the future I want to make an Amineko for me, in another yarn. But now I will continue cross stitching what I started before making this cat toy. 🙂
