When Armadillos Attack!

Laying siege on the castle wall:


Sneaking through the garden:


Just... swarming:






and the obligatory pic of the helpy helperton:

Cheesy




And now, for the backstory:
I made this pattern many, many, many years ago
My best friend asked me to make her brother an armadillo since he loves them so much

And he loved it
Since then, I've made many more, but I've given some away as presents
SO
I only have these three left

These guys are so cute (the sunglasses rock)! I love the picture of them laying siege on the castle wall!

One of these days, my website mascots will be an armadillo and an iguana...you may have nudged me into working on that Wink

Can they roll into a ball when attacked?

Do you have the pattern posted anywhere? My Mom has a thing about armadillos. (Long story) This would be an exceptionally hysterical gift!

unfortunately, no...
but they can trigger the Puss 'n' Boots "awwwwww" reaction, which gives them time to escape Cheesy
