Who is that dashing little guy?
--Why it's none other than my little brother!
Why is he wearing a ghost shirt?
--My brother has worn that shirt almost every day since he was 5. It's his favorite.

I decided to make him an amigurumi version of himself for his birthday. I'm relatively new to crochet and I wasn't confident about making up my own pattern so I found a pattern for Link from the Legend of Zelda (http://tanoshimou.wordpress.com/2010/05/27/link-legend-of-zelda-amigurumi-free-pattern/)
and tweaked it. I'm rather happy with how he turned out.

He's only about 5 inches tall. He's made of acrylic yarn, his hair is fun fur and the little ghosties are felt and handsewn on.

What do you think?

Thanks! He loved it. He has since made his "mini me" a little bed and other accessories. It's cute. Smiley
