Gruffalo miniature crochet characters

What are you most proud of? My 2 boys! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take a small plastic egg (the ones that usually have a small 2cm toy which come from bubblegum machines) and using yarn from your stash crochet around increasing and decreasing when necessary in amigurumi. Try to create features and utilise different yarns to give the desired effect of each animal. I used a soft fluffy yarn for the owl and a coarse wool for the gruffalo. Embroider the features with strands from yarn.
