These are my first attempts at amigurumi's using a great little book of patterns.
I think I can now try to create something of my own.  Grin
I'm still trying to work out the whole ply vs crochet hook size issues.

Feltpats, that look good.  My first was horrible.  It was lobsided and out of shape completely.  Here is a site that might help with weight of yarn and needle sizes.

Wonderful!  I love the heart shaped button nose on the larger grey bear.
