Title: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) mini amigurumi
Post by: underthemountain on May 29, 2008 06:24:48 AM
Hi everyone!

These TMNTs minis were inspired by some great plastic eyes that Dulcinea gave to me in one of the rounds of the OWS.  Thanks Dulcinea!!  After looking at them for a while I decided to make some pint sized versions of the TMNTs.  And after finding out that my partner in the Kids Swap Superhooker had a son that was as crazy as my daughter is for TMNTs I was determined to make them.  This is the result.

I've been doing a fair bit of amigurumi lately and I used some new techniques to make these guys.  I am super proud of the way that they came together.

Meet mini Leonardo, mini Michelangelo, mini Donatello, and mini Raphael.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I had fun making them.  Comments are always appreciated!!   
Have a great day!!  Kawabunga!

Great job!

Pretty tricky how those bows cover up the way amigurumi-swirls don't quite line up! Good thinking!

I've been dying to see these ever since you first mentioned them in the swap forum. They are TOO cute! And one of these days I'm going to have to allow myself to get sucked into the whole amigurumi scene...  ;-)

I love them, they're so cute, especially their little shells. How do they compare in size to the other ones you made?


Title: Re: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) mini amigurumi
Post by: underthemountain on May 31, 2008 11:01:07 AM
Thanks Angry Angel!!  Hmm, I'd say they are 1/2 the size...about 3.5 inches high.  :)  How have you been?  Come back and STS with us!!

Wow. I just had a flashback to my Ninja Turtle phase, including the entire theme song from the (original) show and snippets from each of the three movies.

These are fabulous! Great work!

Those are so amazing dude!  Being tiny also helps make them even cuter!  My little one loves TMNT.  He always likes to pretend that I am April and he is Donatello and he gets to save me.

I second that question about a pattern, I have a boyfriend who would love to get a set of those for his birthday. The man is turning 22, you'd think he'd grow up =P (just kidding, we're both big kids at heart!)
