When I started to crochet amigurumi of talented crochet designers’ toys, I dreamed of creating new characters.

I’m unable to draw. Honestly, I don’t have any talent for it. My abilities of drawing is limited with chopstick men. Therefore, you shouldn’t have expectations that I design a realistic animal. If I get inspired by any illustration, it wouldn’t reflect me.

After a while, I got an idea. If I crochet monsters, I can create whatever I want. The monster can have 3 arms, 5 eyes or a fat belly. It doesn’t matter, because it is a weirdo monster.

What I want is that the monsters should have a unique character, that I can write a micro story about it. This is the direction of my weirdo monsters.

My first monster is Mr. Pistachio, he is a dinosaur looking like a giant pistachio.
