I love the freshstitches kit club so much! This is the cutie that was in May's shipment: an adorable little robot. His name is Sprocket and all he wants is love! The fun part about this kit is that Stacey sent us some felt and beads to make that sweet little heart on his chest. Everyone got different felt/bead color combinations and you can check out all the cutie pie robots here, if you feel so inclined....
I had to learn a new technique to create the square shape on this guy. It was a little awkward at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's not bad. I would recommend it for an intermediate level amigurumi maker, maybe not a first-ever crochet project.
