I had a birthday recently, and received a book called “Kawaii Amigurumi” by Sayjai Thawornsupacharoen. The cute (‘kawaii’ or かわいい in Japanese) creature below is based on one of the designs in the book. I used the patterns for round heads to make the septic eye, and improvised the optic nerve. The eye was requested by someone I can’t believe I’m related to. She thought the eye was cute too. Can’t see it myself <shudders>. I didn’t have quite the right colours, and I made the iris too big but she loves it anyway.
