My first Animal Amigurumi

I suppose it's more of an insect or something. Anyway, I got the "inspiration" from this wonderful website/artist. You should defiitely check out her gallery, it's the reason I picked up crocheting again. She has this one "stuffie" or whatever you call them, of a little snail and I thought it was so cute, I had to try to recreate it on my own. It's a fairly simple design, but it took me some time to figure how everything should go together. I'm pretty proud of it, although i think the little flower she put on her's really finishes it off and well, I was just too lazy to make one since I don't have the convenience of a bead like she had.

this is neat! i had a friend who used to make animals out of crystal beads, and i used to make butterflies and turtles out of silk cord (chinese knotting). but since i have a ton of yarn leftover from my crocheting days i should put it to use.
