Saw the thumbnail, and automatically told myself "I need it!".

Perfect color and absolutely adorable! I will definitely be making me one of these!

Quick question though how did you attach the teeth?


Edit: In my excitement I completely forgot to thank you for the pattern! Thank you so much for sharing!

To attatch the teeth use a nice wet glue like Pva or stronger Smiley

Thank you for the teeth tip!

I remember trying to sew some on while I did the mouth on one amigurumi and they just fell off after sticking up in random directions.
