Hi! When i make feet for my dolls, i make a circle a little bigger than i want the leg to be, crochet a row or two depended on how big you want the foot, and then start decreasing for a few stitches, next row decrease some more but make sure you keep the decreases on the same side, that will shape the foot part, when you get to the size you want the leg to be, keep crocheting until the leg is long enough. does that make sense?

Yep. I'm going to try that out too. i've been crocheting up a storm of different types, and none look right. I even made ones that look like penguine flippers with human legs. lol.

That sounds like the bootie style foot I was talking about earlier.
I'm sure you will come up with something that looks just right.  It took me 4 hours to design the mouth applique for the last creature I designed... just for the mouth alone.  I knew what I wanted and I did it again and again until I found exactly what I was looking for.

Put it down for a few days, do something else and it will come to you in a moment of clarity.  That always works for me - when it doubt, put it down.

Exactly. Last Ami I made was an elephant. I knew just how I wanted the body, but it just never turned out right. everything else looked great, just the body drove me nuts.

What about doing the regular bootie type thing and using embroidery thread to sew toes?  Kinda like what they do on Cabbage Patch dolls...

You could do a basic tube, like a sausage shape, that flares out a bit at the end, gets a bit wider, separate from the leg, under stuff it so it is sort of rather flat, then stitch lines in at the end to add definition to the toes, because when you look at a human foot, the toes are usually sor5t of all touching and laying there clumped together right? So five separate sausages might look weird.  Then attach it to the end of the leg...

I have fiddled around hopelessly trying to find ways to make 90 degree angles in continuous Amigurumi, like for elbows and whatnot, and came to the conclusion that there is no solution, not in my feeble brain anyway.  Often though, two separate pieces stitched together work out really well.

Good luck!
