    These are adorable, Rachel. I have a question though – what does Amigurumi mean?

    • Rachel says:

      Thanks Sarah! Amigurumi derives from the Japanese art form of crochet/knitting stuffed toys. These are like stuffed toys but coasters. So I guess you can call them coaster toys, lol.

    Hi Rachel,
    You are very blessed with your talent. I made the teddy bear coaster and sent you a picture with my coffee mug Remember? Well just wanted to let you know that I started laughing when I read that 5 more friends were born! You really have a nice sense of humor. They are all so cute especially the elephant and I love the color you lavender you made the elephant instead of the boring gray.

    Hey Rachel ,

    Damn Cute & lovely coasters.

    Thanks a lot for the pattern

    Hi Rachel, I have to say this is a great site. Love the felted purses. As soon as I finish the coasters, I’m doing the Casual Girl 2 in black and red for me.

    What yarn do you suggest for the coasters? Cotton or acrylic?

  11. Amy says:

    I can’t wait to try these coasters. They are so cute! Thank you!

    Hi again Rachel,
    I can’t wait to make your bear and turtle coasters, also your finger puppets. I need to finish some other things first. I am going to try to follow your advice about not having WIP’s laying around, by finishing what I start. They have really been a bad habit and a problem for me because they seem to nag at me. Thanks for your excellent site. I crochet very slowly, rip out a lot, but I hang in there with people like you encouraging and inspiring me.

    these would make great toys for my grandchildren!

  14. […] This set includes 5 different characters to crochet: elf, gingerbread man, reindeer, Santa Claus, and snowman. Each coaster is crocheted in the round and made up of small parts that are sewn together. Minor embroidery skills are required to embroider the eyes and mouths. These coasters are great for decorating the kids’ table during Christmas, but sure will put a simile on the adults too! This pattern was inspired by the previous Amigurumi Animal Coasters Crochet Pattern. […]

    Hi !
    The coaster toys are really great n I enjoy making them, would like to know which side is up before attaching the limbs, as both sides present different yarn weaving pattern. Hope u r getting me.
    Your artworks are just awesome n motivated me to try them out. Thank u.

    • Rachel Choi says:

      Hi Pallavi, traditionally round 1 would be the right side (facing up), but in the photos I used round 1 as facing down. It really doesn’t matter for this pattern what you choose. It’s completely up to you as to which side you like!

  16. Pallavi says:

    Hi Rachel !
    My querry is for the teddy coaster.

  17. Pallavi says:

    Thank u Rachel, indeed the backside is much better in weaving pattern which confused me, as to which side is at top. Thank u.

  18. Hi Rachel, I just joined the crochet spot and I purchased 3 pattern and I paid with Pen Pal I did not get any of my patterns and I paid for them! Can you help me please! I paid 14.85 holiday Christmas appliques set 1 and set 2 and the cute animal coasters! Please help me!
