Isn't he precious? I named him Koko because my hubby's Uncle and Aunt have a dog named Cocoa and it's SO cute when Junebug says it out loud--I wouldn't mind hearing her say Koko all day long (it's better than her usual word, "NO"!). I found him on Craft Passion, though the actual pattern comes from Woman's Day. Craft Passion offers may great tips for making the little guy successfully.
If you're a crocheter and have been scared of amigurumi (like I admittedly have been) then it's high time you try it. If I can figure it out, you can too.
I inadvertently shifted to the "head" directions while making the "body", so Koko's body is a bit misshapen. No biggie. To me it wasn't worth re-doing because it didn't look terrible (again, I'm a Type "B" crafter).
I gave the koala to Junebug first thing this morning. She's obviously very appreciative.
P.S. I found a blog that posts daily with free Amigurumi patterns--it's a great place to browse if you're interested in exploring the craft. The site is aptly named Free Amigurumi Crochet Patterns.
