Hi -- I've been a lurker for a while and finally felt crafty enough to join your ranks. I just started crocheting a few weeks ago and have so far turned out these little guys - check out the link above- (plus a cupcake and ghost that have found their way to my daughter's friends).
Roxycraft's Gabu alien was my first, followed by the ninja, which I found on LiveJournal at http://deliriousnanite.livejournal.com/12967.html(and just changed the bunny ears to a tie at the side) the Octopus (sadly more of a Heptipus as he only has 7 legs) and flat bunny are from Lion's Brand free patterns - can't remember where I found the strawberry with the attitude problem.  The candy cane I found with an excellent video tutorial at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAmK0TzcQrM - it's just 2 separate curliques twisted together with a pipe cleaner in the center for shaping purposes -- I added the face so he'd fit in with the rest of the crew.
Anyone have any advice - or a good tutorial link - for joining pieces together with slip stitch along the edges -- the bunny gave me the hardest time -- I gave up and sewed him together.
