Having some some lovely Takochu-esque amigurumi for sale on etsy and elsewhere, I decided to try my hand at coming up with my own pattern, and here are the results: Squidlets! :)
Gav & I have this disgusting, cutesy-coupley thing where we tack '-let' onto the end of random words in conversation, usually to indicate smallness or cuteness, but mostly... just because. "Gavin, I can't find my shoe-lets!" "Oh nooo! But what will you put on your feet-lets?" Yeah, I know. We're gross. :P Anyway, that's where 'squidlet' comes from. I think it's cute! ♥
Squidlets enjoy the company of other Squidlets, and can be stacked, although their balance after three tiers to a Squidlet pile is a bit iffy...
Squidlets like to be kept somewhere with a good vantage point, so they can observe you doing your strange, human activities. Squidlets do not like to be juggled.
I'm actually quite proud of them! Thinking about putting a few on my Etsy later, just to see if there are any bites. I love making them, and it would pretty ace if anyone wanted a Squidlet. (Even just as an excuse to make more!) They would love to travel! ;)
edit: ohmygosh Squidlets all gone in 12 hours! You guys are too kind ♥
