My 2-year old likes sheep and I had some Red Heart Yarn that had just been sitting in my yarn stash for ever so I set out to find something to make for him with it. I found this and thought I would give it a try. The only thing I didn't really like about it was the "closed eyes" so I put little safety eyes on it so my 7 month old couldn't pull them off and choke on them. I also wasn't too crazy about the fluffy yarn for the white color because I didn't want my 7 month old to get little fluff particles in her mouth when she decided she wanted to taste the sheep. So I just used regular worsted weight yarn for the whole thing. Considering this is my first amigurumi EVER, I think it looks FABULOUS!
Here it is!
My 2 year old loves it. I asked him "what are you going to name him?" his reply? "GUMMUS!
