I couldn’t resist making this tiny roly poly turkey after seeing the pattern a few weeks ago!

How could anyone resist me?!

I did make a few changes from the pattern: Most significantly, I used a much larger hook size. The pattern calls for a 2.75mm hook. I don’t even have one that small!

Tiny Tom is still tiny, even compared to tiny Kirby!

The pattern is also made with the wrong side facing out. I used to do that, until I learned it was the wrong side. So now I make all my amigurumi with the right side facing out. In this case, I still went with the right side out because that results in a shorter, rounder result–certainly not bad for Tiny Tom!

I am SO ROUND!

For the tail, I chose the side I liked better to face forwards. It ended up a bit crooked, as did Tiny Tom’s right wing, but it’s still roly poly, so all is good. :)

I am fabulous, tyvm.

Note to self: If I make another Tiny Tom Turkey, sew on the wings before the tail!

The fabulousness that is my tail is too distracting when you're trying to sew on my wings.

Fun fact: Despite what the pattern says, this is actually not a wattle. It is in fact a snood.

Whatever you call my red thing, keep it away from a certain someone who love to nom red things!

Kirby was not particularly impressed by Tiny Tom’s roly polyness.

What pretty leaves!

Why would nomming Tiny Tom's snood be impolite?!
