My boss is turning 50 in a few days (we had her surprise party today). Since she loves otters, I decided to make her an amigurumi version.

Meet Ollie. He's a friendly little fellow who loves playing in kelp.



Here he is without the kelp. I couldn't find a pattern I liked, so I made him up as I went. I embroidered his nose and mouth.



C&C welcome.

Cute! I love the design - the big tail is just right - and the kelp is a great touch.

Thanks. The kelp was a last minute surprise for me. I was wondering what to make for him to hold, and no matter what I looked at (fish, sea stars, etc), nothing felt right. Then I remembered I had some f.o. from playing with hyperbolic crochet, and I found that piece. It was dark green and leafy looking, and I knew it would be perfect.
