My son asked me to make him a David ami from the Caldecott Honor Book "No, David" by David Shannon.   I didn't have a pattern, so I kinda followed an image I found online for shape, and then played around with creating him. This was my first no pattern at all ami I've made, and he loves it.  The picture I'm posting shows my ami next to the book for comparison.

I didn't have any flesh colored yarn in my stash, so I used two different colored white yarns, one acrylic the other cotton.  I know his teeth look really weird on my ami, but I think it turned out pretty good all things considered.

Thanks for looking and sorry he's sideways.

OMG!  I am a preschool teacher and all the No, David! books are such a hit with the kids!

Having a "David" to go with the book is just plain awesome!

Kudos to you!
