While I was working on this little guy (details soon to follow), I realized I usually only show pictures of finished amigurumis (like Mario and Sonic, Totoro, and the striped giraffe). So here's a photo of an amigurumi in the putting-together stage, a process I find pretty amusing. I always feel slightly like a mad scientist with all the body parts laying on the table with all my different surgical tools. As I'm very focused on the job I can see where it'd be handy to have a nurse or an assistant... "Igor, scissors! Needle! T-pins!" I also find it funny how the little doll takes on a life of it's own as soon as the eyes are attached. "It's alive!!! Mwahhhhahaha!" Sometimes I regret having put on the eyes before I'm done stitching all the openings closed or attaching certain limbs; "well, this is awkward!" Haha!
Anyone else feel like Dr. Frankenstein when making amigurumis?
