Just like a good handful of people on craftsters, I too am a Futurama fan. I joined a swap.. finally. I decided I needed to make the most adorable, yet confusing couple in Universe A. All made of acrylic for strength, used a G/6-4.24mm hook. All except one color of the yarns was part of my stash, and so was the felt. All hand sewn & crocheted by be using a book I got from a good friend, Amigurumi for Dummies. I used the boy pattern with slight alterations here and there. I didn't want to put too much detail into it cause I am one of those who believes in "less is more". I hope you enjoy them as much as my partner and I did making them and the photos too. Grin

Here is Phillip J. Fry and Turanga Leela who are flying around the galaxy delivering packages.

Here they are landed on a strange planet to deliver a crafty package.

Romantic Nebula picture. Oohs and Aahhs encouraged. Bye Bender.

Here are some close ups of the crocheting WIP's. Thanks for checking on the happy couple. Comments & constructive criticism always encouraged.

Great job V! Smiley Amigurumi is so much fun to do, especially when you are up until 3 AM doing it. :-O
