I had quite a bit of wool left over, and finally had enough courage to try amigurumi! They didn't turn out great, not even close, but I like them. They're for my 5 year old nephew (the bear), and my 3 year old niece (the wonky panda) and I really hope they'll like them!
I used this pattern for the panda: http://cdn.makezine.com/make/craft/CRAFT_crochetalong_fuzzypanda.pdf (There are videos on youtube to this pattern as well) and mostly this pattern for the bear: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=223520.0 I didn't follow it completely, the head and body are the pattern, the arms I winged. I also used this as inspiration: http://www.kawaiicrochet.com/baron-von-mustache I embroidered the 'tache on, because I didn't want to use felt.



Sorry for the webcam shots. I have no idea how to resize my camera photos :S

Oh I love that 'tache. I'm so glad you embroidered it. Cool.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

They look wonderfully cute!  I like that you went with a nice green on the panda, it makes it more fun.  Love the bear's mustache!
