Better Late Than Never...


I made this second Amigurumi crocodile over a week ago but just could not get a decent photograph of it - for some reason the mouth just caused a white glare with my camera. So today my son got some proper pics done with his super-dooper camera and I can finally put the crocodile on Etsy.


I've made a few alterations from the original Japanese design - I've used 'cat' plastic eyes rather than fabric circles, and continued to make raised crocheted nostrils rather than embroidering them on. This time I have used green yarn and a smaller crochet hook, causing the crocodile to be slightly smaller than the first one I made, but tighter and more 'professional'.

It looks great, but I liked the original. The only thing I haven't been sure about is the teeth, I'd like them more pointy - they're just not scary enough for me. LOL

And where's the arm???? ;-)

Sybille,
Still following the original pattern so not worked out sharper teeth yet - I'd prefer them sharp too. The arm is on the Etsy pics....

Cat - dogs done, pictures today!
