Introduction: Amigurumi and the Perils of Deep Sea Diving

Follow along as our intrepid deep sea diver discovers the dangers lurking in the deep.

All items were made and designed by me using my Clover Soft Touch US Size E (3.5 mm) hook, and stuffed using polyester fiberfill.  Some of the crochet patterns which I used here are available online, and I have included links where applicable.  Some patterns have not yet been released.  :)

Also, because I am exceedingly lazy, the speech bubbles were made using a tool available here: http://wigflip.com/ds/

Captain Nemo was never so appealing.  Very cool.

As soon as the pattern is available, I will be sticking a copy to the lid of Kitewife's workbox as a very large hint.

The last picture made me laugh!

It's almost like the deep sea divers head is acting like a censor for the "Oh, Nuts!"
