Yes, we can do other things besides monkey amigurumis…like a tiger amigurumi!
This tiger amigurumi is supposed to go along with the Chinese zodiac theme, but it seems like we’ll be doing the animals out of order and depending on our mood. I mean who can resist a tiger in the middle of the rabbit year? If we seriously decided to post the animal of the year in order and in a timely fashion then you’d have to stay tuned for another eleven years!! Yep, crazy indeed. But if you’d like to stick around for that long then you are more than welcome to! :D
So here is the side view of our tiger amigurumi…nice and round from all the rabbits he ate. Ha ha, no tigers eat better things… like human food!
Mmm…junk food. I just realized, the only thing here that has meat in it is the piddly little meat patty in the hamburger. Apparently our tiger amigurumi has been feasting on other things…like rabbits! Such a ravenous appetite!
The stripes were cut out of felt and glued onto the body. It was a painstaking process but it turned out looking like a tiger right? The tiger’s facial hair is also cut out from felt. Its weird enough that a tiger would need facial hair to look like one, but without it it just doesn’t look right. Without the hair, I’m pretty sure a lot of people would start thinking it was a Garfield cat of some sort. Either that or people would probably think it was some kind of striped dog-cat-bear. Yeah…we don’t want you to think that. Do you see the importance of facial hair?! Somehow I think it makes it look wiser…if not, old and seasoned. :]
Thanks for looking at our little hairy, unshaven, but wise-looking tiger amigurumi!
