Ami what? Amigurumi.

At first I was like what is amigurumi?  So I looked it up...

Amigurumi: is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.

I think just the name is japanese, but maybe I am wrong. But I did make Carter his own amigurumi.  I found this free pattern for Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba.

Here's mine. Not bad. I struggled more with the eye and mouth!  I thought it would be simple. Yup. It wasn't for me for some reason! And I have to add his teeth. I just could not get it right yesterday. Maybe today.

It was so easy that I also, started without a pattern a Brobee ( Also from Yo Gabba Gabba) and I think I did pretty good! I got one arm left! And then to add his face.
