How do you make feet that actually resemble feet? No toes necessary, just a general, non-shoed foot shape? This has been driving me nuts *forever* and I can't figure it out. My ami's just wind up having long tubes for feet. I've tried everything (or so it seems) and I've been stuck on this for months. I have this great ami Idea, but everytime i get to the feet, it never turns out.

Help please!

I'm just looking for a general foot-shape. The character i'm making needs to be barefoot.

What is the size of your amigurumi? And do you have pictures?

My camera is broken, so I can't post pics yet. I have the arms and the head. He'd be pretty large.

Sorry bout the silence - I have been neglecting my crochet discussion board!

Feet are always fun for me - It all depends on the size and kind of stuffie as to what kind of feet you make.
When I designed my penguin for Caron I opted to make flipper like feet (and after that pattern was a free pattern pull penguins with similar feet started popping up everywhere online) and for my Buster Bunny (free on my site) I opted to do something more fitting of a bunny and gave him more of a toed or shoed appearance.  Just two examples.  I design the feet to go with the creature every time... I don't use the same foot for all my patterns since that would just not do at all lol  You can't have penguin feet on a dinosaur... okay... there might be a few instances here or there but I'm not thinking off hand of a dino that had duck or penguin feet.

It really depends on the size and kind of stuffie you are making

Do you want it to have toes or not?  For human feet I tend to go with more of a bootie look unless there are toes involved.

what about using a sock pattern and maybe adding toes (tubes, crocheted in the circle) instead of the first few regular rows?
maybe for baby socks

probably there's even patterns/tutorials for these socks with toes.

I'm not so fond of the bootie look.  Baby socks might work.  The toe Idea sounds interesting, too. I actually rather like it.
I might try out the baby sock thing.any other ideas?
