Decided to make an Ami that would be a symbol of my call name here on the ville. The hat is not sewn on, thought it would be neat if I could make different hats for seasons/occasions.
Had a problem with the pictures, if they were light you couldn't define her legs, and when dark the sparkles in the black yarn didn't show up, so I wound up with more than one pic.
Couldn't find a crow pattern that I liked so I made my own shaping her as I went. (alot like me, a little lumpy here and there :lol).
The hardest part was the beak, I must have made 9 or 10 of them before I settled on this one....
She isn't as lumpy as it appears in 3rd pic, those are her legs and wings making it look that way...:hook

Thanks, I have to credit you with giving me the idea. The crow in your clues was too slick and slim, so I decided to create a plumper version, :lol. The hat was a necessity, protection from the sun, (keep my brains from getting more scrambled than they are).:wink
