Last month I had the opportunity to take an online class at Craftsy, a pretty awesome web site that you should explore if you haven’t already done so. (Yes, I’m an affiliate… and proud to be! If you blog and are interested in becoming an affiliate, click here.)

Besides offering online classes in all kinds of crafts from crochet to cake decorating, Craftsy also offers free and premium patterns, and sells yarn and other crafting supplies, often at huge discounts.

After reviewing the list of different crochet classes available, I decided to take “Amigurumi: Woodland Animals.” I have only tried amigurumi once before, right when I was first learning to crochet, and it didn’t go so well. I never even finished that cute little monkey, because I was so in over my head! I always wanted to give it another try, and I thought this would be the perfect chance.

craftsyclasspointers“Amigurumi: Woodland Animals” is a GREAT class. Taught by the adorable and helpful Stacey Trock, this class offers 10 different segments with almost 5 hours of instruction, plus free patterns for each of the four amigurumi animals you’ll learn to make. Each pattern builds on the last, until you’re completely comfortable with shaping, color changing, stuffing, and sewing together. And the classes never expire, so you can keep coming back to them to refresh your memory.

And what’s really cool? It doesn’t matter what your crochet skill level isyou can learn from this class! Even if you are brand new to crochet, with the help of the first two segments (Introduction and Skills & Techniques), you’ll be able to learn the basic skills you need to excel through the class. (What better way to learn the basics than to watch someone else while they do them?)

raccoonAnd if you’ve been crocheting for decades, you can skip right over those first segments and get right to the fun – making some adorable crocheted stuffed animals, like this cute and cuddly raccoon! (I’m really proud of myself for finishing this little guy… and he looks way cuter than that monkey I attempted a couple of years ago!)
