Amigurumi – Graduate

I know it has well passed the time of graduation for most students. However, it is never too late to share the gift I made for my brother, Eric, to celebrate his graduating from high school several months ago.

Eric was the Valedictorian of his class. Needless to say, our family was extremely excited about his graduation. Every one of us had spent months to deliberate over the graduation gifts. I wanted to make something special—something that shows my excitement and appreciation for his achievements. I decided to crochet a doll for Eric—a doll that represents him. It was the first time I had ever handmade a gift for him. (It’s also the first time I had ever handmade a gift for a boy. Ha ha!)

In the eye of the beholder (me!), the doll is chubby and cute. In my brother’s opinion, my creation became the following…

His first reaction upon receiving the doll: “My hair looks like this!?”

A moment later, he continued, “Dude, my head is a ball of rice!”

@_@

Well, there is nothing I can do about the “rice ball” head!

Today, this prominent “rice-ball head” graduate stood on my brother’s bookshelf. I guess my gift is not that bad after all.

    Excellent post. You must continue to offer excellent resources and content like you have been offering. I will most likely stop by again in the future.
