Once upon a time there was a teeny tiny town. And in this teeny tiny town lived a teeny tiny family known as the Little’s.


It was a beautiful sunny day in the teeny town so the Little’s decided to stroll to the park and enjoy a picnic lunch.
But just when they were sitting down to enjoy some tater-tots they heard a rumbling in the distance.


Cactus Little recognized it immediately. It was the unmistakable call of the…



WEINZILLAAAAAA!!!!



(notice the glowing red eyes of the terrifying beasts…)


The Little’s ran and hid to escape the terrible monsters but they knew the pair of ruthless Weinzilla's would find them eventually.
Then Crab Apple Little had an idea...

What's the one thing Weinzilla's hate more than baths, more than the vet, more than being dressed up in stupid costumes…


…the vacuum cleaner!!!!

The Little's mustered all of their strength and courage and just when the Weinzilla’s were about to attack they flipped up the “ON” switch and the vacuum cleaner roared to life.



The Weinzilla's immediately turned and ran for their lives. They retreated to their blanket cave and the teeny tiny town was saved!!!!



The Little’s returned to the teeny tiny town and were greeted with a hero’s welcome. They even had their photograph taken with the Mayor, Penny Little Lincoln. The End!!



EPILOGUE
Sadly, while enjoying his new hobby of spelunking, Hippo Little stumbled upon the Weinzilla blanket cave. The rest is history…

I had so much fun making these tiny amigurumi characters (and dressing up my unsuspectting weiner dogs). Pear Little, Cactus Little and Hippo Little are made with embroidery floss. Chicken Little and Crab Apple Little were made with very fine tatting thread. The hook sizes I used varied between 1.5mm and 1.15mm.

Thank you SO much for looking Smiley Smiley!!
