What craftster means to me - this is an awesome place where I know people will appreciate the work I do, no one will think I'm weird for crocheting or crafting. I can show it all off with pride and not be shy about it.  Well, I wanted to make an amigurumi of a person, but I didn't want a big poofy one like are out there. They're cute and all and I really like them, but for this project I wanted it to look kinda realistic. So......I played and crocheted and ripped it out and crocheted some more and finally I had something that I really liked!  I waited til the last day to enter this hoping my package would be recieved but it hasn't yet so bambam91, NO PEEKING! Lol

Here is my final result for an Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton style)

And I did the Mad Hatter too


And the pattern!!

I used a G - 4.0mm hook. Of course you can use whatever size you like, keep in mind your Ami sizes will vary. Mine were about 8" tall (I'm guessing here, I forgot to measure  Tongue)
I used worsted weight yarn (red heart or bernat)
