Finished this a few days ago. Wish I could find eyes in stores (not online).

I'm so happy to see that someone made this!  I'm working on it right now and I have a couple questions:  Did you stuff the ears at all?  And how much did you stuff the head?  I've read stuff on the amigurumi that says to stuff, stuff, stuff, but his head is getting ridiculously large!

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha

haha! try to overstuff the head/body if you can because that will make it solid. you don't want a floppy chihuahua! the ears are flat so i didn't put anything inside. Wink

Thank you, thank you!  It's an awful small hole to stuff for the body!  Geez.  I'm glad to see the little guy assembled without it being covered up by a bandana like in the picture.  I was kind of wondering where to attach the head since the stuff I read said that the patterns are made so all of the openings match up and this one doesn't.  Now I can go finish it!

woof. If you have an AC Moore where you are, they sell those type of eyes. Also at Ragshop but I don't think that is a chain store.

What a great chihuahua!  It looks better than the real thing that lives next door to me.

Oddly enough, I am now craving Taco Bell.

I keep coming back to this - I think I will have to make a white one for the neighbours that own the chihuahua next door - I will see if I can take a picture of when they first meet if I make one!

Normally, I can't stand chihuahuas, but this is adorable! Smiley

My cousin has one, though, and I think I now know what I'm making her for Christmas. Smiley

Oh, what a cutie! I'm inspired to try and make a golden retriever amigurumi in honour of my cousin's overweight dog. Hehe.
