Originally I wasn't going to enter this month, but one fateful car trip changed that.  Here is Tiny Thom.  He was a Rebel Alliance soldier on the Sanctuary Moon of Endor, but is now semi-retired.




Thom with his pet rainbow turtle.

Thom has a real sweet tooth, especially mini peanut butter cups!  He strapped his helmet on before chowing down on this one.


A better shot of the turtle, based on Angry Angel's pattern only slightly modified.
  This is what got me thinking small hooks to begin with.

Rainbow Turtle ran up onto the roof of their 3 story condo with the helmet....Thom followed, wanting to cover his bald head again!
 
Just to show, he is slightly less than 2", although it is hard to tell in this photo.  And his turtle is 1.5" from nose to toes.

I was crochetting to keep from backseat driving on a long drive and ended up accidently making Thom, my son decided his helmet looked like those from Star Wars VI which is how this all came to be.  Forgive the photos, I had to work around a helper that just wanted his toy back.. Cheesy As you see in this shot.

Thx!  I'm still learning to crochet, and am currently loving amigurumi.

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

Yes the helmet is removable and can move into a few variations, which is my son's favorite part.
