Amigurumi R2D2

The other week, I was at my knitting group and planned on working on the color graph for a BB8 hat. I realized that I didn't have enough information to know where the color areas overlapped, so I decided to design a little R2D2 for my sister's birthday instead. I wanted to make his dome (head) jointed, so I used one of the safety eyes I use for the bodies of my clay dolls. It was a really tight squeeze to get the washer to lock on.

R2's pieces. I was going to use the cardboard disks under the "joint" to keep it flat, but it wouldn't lock with the extra thickness

His "decorations" are quite simplistic

I've just been given a magazine with amigurumi patterns, I'm working on my second one. You're much more skilled, creating originals!
