This is my first posting of a project. My daughter is in Kindergarten and the teacher asked parents to bring more snack options for Fridays, which is snack day. One of the kids brought in a big container of animal crackers in Winnie the Pooh theme. He proceeded to tell the teacher that they are "Winnie the Poop." Once she told me the story I had an idea. I had seen many amigurumi poop and loved the sense of humor behind it.
Soooo I decided to make the teacher a amigurumi poop, in which I named Winnie. She absolutely loves it and even put it up for display in the classroom, which made me very happy.
I used the pattern Happy Poo found at http://puchitomato.livejournal.com/16545.html
Thank you to that person for sharing her pattern!
And without further delay, here's Winnie!
Her heart cheeks are hearts I cut out from fabric I have on hand. Her eyes are those doll eyes that I covered with a silver Sharpie marker then covered with a Green Sharpie. Her smile is the same yarn used for doilies, and her flower is a silk hydrangia that I colored in 2 shades of pink. To weigh Winnie down I added decorative glass that you find in vases of flowers, then stuffed.
She took me about 3 hours to make from start to finish, and that was only because I had to restart a couple times as I lost count. I was able to finally make her up while my daughter was in school and not pestering me.
Thank you for looking!
