Amigurumi......a labor of love.

Note to self: Do not start another teeny animal right after a long day at work. Oh, and find out HOW to pronounce that word.

See, his head ended up a bit small.... tension... it gets you every time.

A sample for the shop. Made from "Cutest Little Animals" using Vanna's Choice yarn in silver grey and taupe.

There, not so hard. Remember, the "r" is rolled.

Everyone seems to be getting on that Amigurumi bandwagon these days.

You pronounce it "cute"! We just went to see "Soosical" and Horton was just too sweet. I love your little elephant and you did a great job!
