Three friends of the nest ……

This isn’t any birds nest we are talking of here.

But the nest of an Evil Squirrel. Amongst the many (evil) friends he has, are the naughty possum Buster and Rainbow Donkey.

I promised myself to crochet Evil Squirrel months back when I first visited his blog. And last week I discovered a fantastic doll making technique – the topsy turvy dolls. My mind started to brew !! How about a possum hiding inside Evil Squirrel ….. squuueeeeeaaaall!!! I couldn’t wait to see this idea in form ! And Evil Squirrel’s contest announced few weeks back gave me enough reason to get started on this evil project.

To be honest, I hate contests and often shy away from participating in them. But, I was for long nurturing the idea of crocheting Evil Squirrel and I kept postponing because I feared the details were very difficult to translate in crochet. And I am extremely contented the way all of them have turned out.

Meet the three friends. Evil Squirrel, Buster the possum, and Sparkly the unicorn (or donkeycorn ) !!!

In my hurry to finish all of them, I missed out on adding a couple of more details…like the mouth for ES and Buster, Buster’s tail stripes etc. On the whole I really loved crocheting all three of them, but love Buster the best ! Thanks to the contest, I got to crochet ES finally !!

    • yeah, I too first thought of making a finger puppet but went for a standing critter because I plan to have them displayed on shelves. The sparkling white yarn seems indeed to be adding a lot of sparkle 🙂

    • Thank you !! I am glad you like them. They were fun to make although I could have done a lot better. Missed out on a lot of details. Maybe someday when I have more time, I will make a proper amigurumi ES 🙂
