i made this little guy for the recent Amigurumi Addiction swap.
the pattern is from a fun book i found at my local book store called "Voodoo Maggie's Adorable Amigurumi"  by Erin Clark. this bugger was actually quite challenging for me!



i'm glad it was difficult though, because now i feel like i've learned a lot about shaping and assembly that i didn't know before!



thanks for looking Smiley

Love the idea of using duplicate stitches for the spots rather than making odd pieces and sewing them on.



p.s. I like the green.  Grin

He's very tidy! I think this is perfect because his appendages can't be ripped off by the little ones so easily. What a cutie. Good work!
