Photo of the Day – July 14, 2011: Baby Seal by Belle Ami Crochet

Can you even believe the cuteness?  This adorable, shiny-eyed baby seal, hand-crocheted by Mary Grabenstatter of Belle Ami Crochet, was just one character in the entire parade of cuteness on her table at the Astoria Market last weekend.

Sweet and unusual animals, including purple manatees, koala bears, hedgehogs, and geckos make up the Belle Ami collection.  Mary has also recreated some of the characters from our favorite Pixar movies and shorts, including Mike Wazowski, Sully, and even the evil Randall from Monsters Inc.  One of her latest creations is the dancing lamb from Pixar’s short Boundin’, complete with the white coat.

Mary had her debut at the market last week, and I hope we’ll see a lot of her and her creations in the artisan markets.  And believe it or not, she only recently taught herself to crochet.  I think she’s gotten the hang of it, don’t you?  Check out the entire Belle Ami Crochet collection on Etsy.
