Miku-Miku

I was supposed to do this amigurumi project in December as a Christmas gift to a friend, but he abruptly had to go away so I decided to make this as a last minute parting gift instead. Awww... (T.T) 

Anyway, I came to find out he's a Miku Hatsune nut. So obviously, I had to make him his own amigurumi version of the blue-haired Vocaloid. Well, I'm not exactly sure what's his stand on receiving dolls as gifts, so I opted to make Miku in teeny-tiny size. I guess that seemed manlier. Hahaha! ^^

For the base I used  Silvia Usón's chibi pattern. I believe I used this for the Japanese version of Tinkerbell last year. Remember? My gift to my second eldest brother? I thought that really turned out cute. ^^

Since I needed to make a tinier version, of course I had to use a smaller hook, which was quite the challenge for me. Well, other than I'm used to big hooks, my hands are pretty large. Well, not exactly man-hands but I guess unusually big for Filipina standards. Actually, with a height of 5'4.5'', I'm practically considered a giant here. Yeesh! O_o

Sigh! Happy as I am that I've accomplished yet another adorable amigurumi, I still get a bit sad every time I remember why I had to make this one. Well, that's life... People come and go. -_- I just hope that he likes this new tiny friend... And her pet leek. Hahaha! ^^
