A while back, one of my friends visited the Everglades, and awesome animal-lover that she is, she met and fell in love with a baby alligator. She sent me a beautiful pic of her with the alligator in her arms. (His name was Marshmallow.) Not that long afterward, I was telling her about what I was crocheting and she mentioned that she had seen this cute little crochet alligator on a blog. I asked her to send me the link, and of course, when I looked at it, how could I resist? So I crocheted this one up for my friend. And yes, his name is also Marshmallow. 🙂
I changed the eyes to make him look a little more… you know… alligatory. And instead of gluing on the felt, I sewed it with transparent thread.
