Step 1: Mini TMNT Amigurumi Pattern

Step 3: Materials Needed

Fasten off, stuff- keep in mind there will be a little bulge where the 'nose' is supposed to be. I shaped it even more by using a little bit of yarn and using this technique for where the eyes would be- http://amigurumiaskina.blogspot.co.il/2013/07/ami... I did this with the mask as well.

I pulled my belt through the spaces in the shell rim and then sewed in the ends to keep it in place.

I hope this works out for everyone and I look forward to making more! I'd love to see pictures if anyone makes one!
