There have been so many cute teeny-tiny projects posted lately that I was inspired to make something of my own. With my newly acquired crochet skills I tried my hand at amigurumi.

I used embroidery floss and a little teeny hook that I found in a box I inherited from Grandma to make this little guy. My hands cramped and my eyes crossed looking at the little stitches but I think he turned out cute.





Here he is with his older (more guinea-pig looking) brother...



Thanks for looking!!
