I just popped these fellas in the mail today. These are our donations to this year's Softies for Mirabel (http://meetmeatmikes.blogspot.com/2009/09/softies-for-mirabel-2009-crafting-for.html) campaign. Come December these amigurumis and dozens of others will be given away to children who come from families that have been affected by substance abuse.

On the far left is my newest creation. We're calling this one the Eggplant Baby and it was designed by the boyfriend, who is both wise and witty. His original intention was a Medusa-like creation, but you can see I didn't quite get the hair long enough for the head size. Next time! Also included here is one my Tiny Cthulhus (http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/2008/05/tiny-cthulhu-free-pattern.html) and the frog that I made when I was testing out Tamie Snow's Tiny Yarn Animals.

For those that are interested, there's still time if you want to send out one of your own creations. Donations that are received by December 10, 2009 will also be part of a window display at Meet Me At Mike's in Australia. Just follow the url given in the first paragraph for more information.

Thanks for looking,
amber

That's so sweet! I love your ami's too. It must be hard to let go, but to a really great cause. I wish I had safety eyes. Do they require safety eyes on the ami's??

You could e-mail the people at Meet Me At Mike's and ask them about the safety eyes. I believe they give gifts to children from toddlers up to eighteen year olds. So you could perhaps include a note with your donation saying the eyes aren't suitable for a small child. Alternatively, you could make eyes some other way, sew them on with felt or just stitch them right onto your amigurumi. Also, check out local dollar stores in your area, I've often found good deals on safety eyes at dollar stores.

You're right it is hard to give them away, especially because each thing I make immediately becomes my favorite creation! I just have to keep reminding myself that they will make someone else happy too, and then it's worth giving them up.
