WHAT IS MELLYGURUMI?
I designed a full amigurumi doll in early 2021, and had such a positive response from my followers, I just had to make a few more. Our little girl, Madison has always been an inspiration for my designs and as she gets older she takes more and more interest in my work. She enjoys helping me to pick the colours I use, and loves to make a drawing of how the doll will look. The main difference between a Maddy Doll and MellyGurumi is that the MellyGurumi is larger, and the clothes are made separately and then attached, whereas the Maddy Doll's clothes are made as we make the doll.

Essentially the same as crochet but refers to the process of making 3D toys. It involves working in the round, making spheres which are then stuffed to form the head, body and limbs of adorable little animals and dolls.
