Dove the Dear and Winifred (Wini) the mini Woodpecker

I'm a little late to posting last month's amigurumi.  It was a challenging one! but its done, and so is this current months amigurumi.  They are best friends and both have names that mean peace.

Dove the Deer: 
For dove, I wanted to have the body and neck one piece.  This proved to be challenging and annoying, but I figured it out.

I also wanted the back legs to have a bend and thigh, instead of a straight leg.  And of course I had to make that white fluffy tail!
I was rather pleased with how Dove turned out, though it took a lot longer than I anticipated.  

Winifred (Wini) the Mini Woodpecker:

    Wini is actually made to scale with Dove.
   Other than the balloon I made with my previous Amigurumi (Budd), I had not done a miniature amigurumi. It took some getting used to, but I didn't find it to difficult.  The hardest part was sewing the wings and beak on, as the rest was done in one piece.

Mini Wini is so tiny, she fit inside this flower!

   I loved working on these two amigurumis and trying to make them compliment one another.  

   Keep your eyes out for my next complimenting amigurumis, to be revealed sometime in the next two months!
