This is the first time I've seen an amigurumi with its mouth actually open, but you did an amazing job shaping everything! The colors, details, and everything look great. Now the only thing that would be even better than this, would be to own it myself. Ahh, a kid can dream.
Oh my gosh that would be so awesome! I haven't tried to make my own amigurumi patterns yet... but I have made two bag patterns. I haven't published them yet cause I haven't had time to actually design a nice layout yet. I made Pokemon White 2 (Rosa Mei's) pink and white bag (for Pokecon - in 2 days!!) and Kagome's backpack (as a snack bag - from Inuyasha). I envy those who can do their own patterns for such amazing things!
Oh, wow! Those sound really cool! I'm so jelly that you can go to Pokecon. I don't think we have anything like that where I live. I hope you have lots of fun!
Haha. Honestly, my pattern making skills are pretty limited. Bulbasaur was my first one, and I must have made and remade each part at least 4-5 times trying to get it to look right. I'm hardly worthy of your envy. I definitely encourage you to try when you have the time. I can't promise that it'll be easy, but the end result will be well worth the effort!
Haha it's not in my state, but it's only a couple of hours away so it's not horribly bad.
I know what you mean. My first bag ended up a lot bigger than I expected (and my liner expected >.> but I managed to squeeze the rim of it to fit since I didn't want to remake the liner). My second ended up a little wider than I thought it would, but it ended up being a decent size so I'm pretty happy with that.
Making your own patterns is hard, but it is very worth it when it works out!
