Hippo with Daisy

Crocheted amigurumi toy Hippo with Daisy

No war! We want to create in joy and peace, instead of watching mindless destruction!

Hippo prepared a daisy especially for 8th of March! It congratulates all women with the upcoming holiday!

And masters of amigurumi have a few more days to create their own little hippo :)

Japanese journals think that it’s a moomin – a fun creature of Swedish fairy tales. Therefore, you have an occasion to watch some old cartoons! So it’s up to you whom this one will be a hippo or a moomin. For me it’s a hippo-daisy! :)
