Happy Day

YEAAAAAAAA!!!!!  The ac guy just came back and fixed the ac!!!!  Again!!!  Third time this month!!!!  He said that cause the dryer vent thing is right next to the outside unit, it kept sucking in the heat and lint from the dryer.  That’s why it kept shutting off on us.  Today it is because he had to readjust the pressure.  I swear i have never had an ‘appliance fixer’ come over so fast!  Each time we’ve called he’s been over super quick.  And you know who else is happy?

This little guy!  I think he’s also sensitive to the heat.  Or just blissfully unaware.

1202009566_f4a51e938f_m1.jpg

He does like Mickey Mouse though.

Filed under: amigurumi,crochet,free patterns — gnathalie2 @ 2:41 am

This little guy is actually a super warrior overlord.  That’s why he has an ‘O’ on his belly.  He was born that way.

finish off, weave in ends.

Stuff body before closing. Take a small square of felt, fold diagonally, cut a circle on one side to get the beak shape. glue to head. then glue on eyes. cut out ‘wings’, feet, and ‘O’, and glue on. All done!!!!!

This pattern has so not been tested.  It’s pretty much a head and body in one. If it doesn’t look right when your’e making it, then make it look right.  You wanna end up with a narrow hourglass shape, with a teeny tiny bit of ‘junk in the trunk’.  Enjoy!!!!

This guy was easy to make, mainly cause all the yarn needles are upstairs and the stinky tube of glue was near me.
