This is a gift for my fiance, he likes the Droid (From the Android Cell Phone Operating System) and is one of the only mascots he likes. So I made it as a surprise for him. He loved it and it will be living with him at his work desk.

It turned out better than I thought. I didn't use a pattern, but I did watch some videos on begining on a amigurumi. I know there are patterns online, but I made this one up as I went.
The only thing I would have done differently was make this little guy wider/fatter. He looks a little thin -lol

Let me know what you think/tips --Thanks for looking and please feel free to leave a comment!   Cheesy

He looks very proficient. I would not have guessed he was your first! I am also impressed that you decided to make up a pattern for you first amigurumi.

Since I have a lot of this yarn still left. It was a great bargan, plenty for more projects!

That is sooooooo awesome! My most recent completed project was an Android tablet sleeve.  I redesigned the Android with a dress and bow.  I love your plushie! I am also a total Android fangirl (my tablet is a Xoom of course!) The little army sounds awesome, possibly basing their positions off army men? Could be really funny!
