My Very First Amigurumi

My very first amigurumi came from the book, Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet by Anna Paula Rimoli. Here is the link to her blog. I made the boy and girl elephant and loved it!
This one is the boy (obviously)...
His name is Maxamilliano.
Try saying that 10 times fast :)
Made this lovely elephant amigurumi in late 2008 I believe.

I changed the face because I didn't have the eyes and love altering patterns anyways :)

After I finished making it I showed my brother Michael and he told me that it could have come straight from a manga comic. Ahhh...gotta love my little brother.
He is very photogenic. No?
More crochet projects to come as well as a recap of the marvelous Renegade Craft Fair in Austin!!!! Toooooo goooooood for words, but in the mean time check out my sister's post about the experience.
Sweet Dreams!
xoxo, Callie

This is a very well detailed amigurumi! it's really adorable, the face is done really good. I also liked the color you chose!
I can see the stuffing is showing out, the easy solution is simply crochet with a smaller crochet needle. The crocheting will be tighter and nothing will show. :)
