Amigurumi Tiny Mutant Ninja Turtles

I wanted to make some tiny mutant ninja turtles. I found these really cool ones on Crafster Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles amigurumis for my daughter, but they were too large for what I wanted, so I made up my own. This is what I got. I had fun making these little ones, so I’m posting a small tutorial on how I made them. I work everything in the round, and I use a magic ring to start almost everything. If you don’t know how to make a magic ring, here is a great tutorial from PlanetJune.

I’ve tested this pattern a few times, but if there’s a mistake or something that doesn’t quite work let me know so I can fix it.
