Dora the Explorer

This is my record!! I had promised my cousin to make a Dora the Explorer for her sweet sweet baby girl´s 1st birthday party, but as usual I was over confident and started a little too late. The very day of the party. Actually, I started it the night before, Saturday night as I was watching American Idol (yes, in Mexico it is shown on Sat & Sun), but I was way to tired to do it.
Not to mention I had no yarn resembling the exact color of her skin (Dora´s), so I tried to make her light creamy but my two older daughters immediately protested saying that Dora wasn’t that color, so I changed it for the darkest, which is a little darker than I would have chosen but what´ya gonna do. I didn´t have the time to run to the store.
So everything went well, except I had to get to the party with a Dora with no arms and no backpack, and I finished her right there. The important thing is that she was delivered and my extremely cute baby niece LOVED IT, she even took her to sleep with her.
And that is the purpose of my amigurumi, you know? To get a big smile out of the people I make them for.
So enough of the babbling, here are the pics:






So I´m specially happy with this one, because I did it in a day!! Scratch that, I did it in a morning!!
