Hi everyone! In honor of Lunar New Year's official arrival, I am continuing with a series of tiger related posts over the new week or so, since it is year of the tiger following the Chinese zodiac. If you would like to see the official Lunar New Year Post, click here. Today's post feature two of amigurumi tigers: the feline tiger and the marsupial thylacine (aka Tasmanian tiger). While I like to make because they are cute, I also like to use my amigurumi as a teaching tool about different animal species, including facts about their conservation status and how humans have impacted them over the centuries. I love tigers, and it is very sad that these majestic big cats have struggled so much because of habitat loss, hunting, and poaching.
Below are eight general facts about each type of tiger. (Here's a bonus: Tiger and Thylacine both start with the letter "T").
Thylacine (Tasmanian tiger) facts:
The little amigurumi tiger and thylacine continued their photoshoot together. Today is their first time together, exploring around some different plants; fun times! Their series of adventures will continue in later posts, so stay tuned! The tiger will also be apart of the upcoming "Caturday Chronicles", which will begin next week.
If you would like to purchase the pattern for either of the amigurumi you can do so below. They are also available on my Etsy, Ravelry, and LoveCrafts stores (links to these are available in the "shop" dropdown menu of my website). They are also available on Etsy as a pattern bundle, so you can have both at the same time!

Until next time! Remember the tigers!
Also, feel free to let me know in the comments what you think of these two.
Consider finding ways to help reputable animal conservation organizations this year! Help out the remaining tiger populations! Amigurumi are cute, but protecting real animals is even better.
A place for my creative endeavors, as well as my personal artist journey. Special story segments featuring cute amigurumi animals, as well as friendly cat posts. Enjoy!
