I decided to try my hand at Amigurumi - Japanese word that literally means "crocheted stuffed toy"
They are so freakin cute, and seeing as I have a 4 yr old little girl that loves soft cute things, I decided to give it a go.
She initially wanted me to make an ugly looking airplane, which didn't really even look like a plane, even when crocheted by professionals. I am not about to put in that much time, effort and yarn to make a toy that looks ridiculous. I vetoed that choice and had her choose between the 3 that looked like real toys: Bunny, Giraffe or Elephant. She agreed on the giraffe.
So with no further adieu....
He is pretty darn cute, I must say. I need to work on sewing the pieces together a bit, because I kind of jacked up the neck seam....
...but Adalee didn't notice. She named him Carlon - her favorite girl's name is Carla, so all boys are "Carlon"
