Tiger Ami by BaLaNcIngHiMe Tiger Ami by BaLaNcIngHiMe
He stands roughly 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) from his bum to the top of his ears and 5 inches (12.7 cm) across from the edge of one foot to the other.

This little guy, or actually pretty big compared to most of my ami's is for my younger brother who's been asking for a tiger since the moment he learned I could crochet, hope he likes it!

I know I'b being nit picky... but... he looks more like a teddy bear than a tiger for, his body is a bubble...( if anyone has tips on how to make .. more oval like.. or normal shaped bodies PLEASE PLEASE share with me!!! T^T OTL) his arms are longer than his legs.. and his head is lopsided... is the lopsided head due to working in rounds or is it just bad stuffing on my part? Not to mention the plain old stitch mistakes I've made constantly.. .and the fact that his stripes aren't straight... ... learning experience I suppose, if I ever make him again I know what not to do..not really but it's all good :)

*EDIT* Omg over 50 faves..... that's definitely a first for me thanks everyone! :iconjawdropplz:
*EDIT* Over a 100 Favs . . . Thanks everyone especially if I haven't thanked you personally!

Awww, he's so cute! Do you have a pattern you based him off of, or did you create it without a pattern? ^_^

I wrote the pattern down as I went along :) so no I didn't have a pattern at the beginning, but yes I kind of have one now lol although it's not very discernible as patterns come ;)

no worries, I only know about the comic because there was very little to read at my aunt and uncle's house that was geared toward anyone under twenty five or so, and we'd visit them twice a year.

I would have, but I was too young for nearly all the fiction, and I had no appreciation for non-fiction as a kid, so the comics were the only things I was interested in until I was about twelve. Then I started borrowing my cousin's bookshelf, much to the dismay of at least one of my english teachers (Deerskin by Robin McKinley is not the usual reading material for a middleschool student, and for good reason)

This is super cute! I've never crocheted before, so I don't have any tips to share - but I don't think things like this should be perfect in a "straight-line" etc., sort of way. He's super cute, and things like his wavy stripes add to the made-with-love feel, if that makes sense. All the imperfections, as you see them, are just what make this little guy so unique!

I'm pretty jealous of your younger brother! This tiger is way too cute ;~; ♥
