Meet Bin Bin and Ube -- crocheted Tooka Dolls

Using Bonnie's instructions as a template, I crocheted two Tooka dolls and named them Bin Bin and Ube.  

Here they are in a Wookiee's Life Day stocking.  (Don't recall Wookiee stockings? See deleted scenes on STAR WARS The Holiday Special Special Edition DVD.)

How I did it
I printed the reference photo and used it as a sizing guide.  I crocheted a rectangular tube using sc and back-to-front sc stitches on the wrong side while leaving openings for the various appendages.  Then I crocheted the appendages by crocheting tubes in rounds around each opening.  I decreased the stitches in each round until it was small enough to weave close with a sewing end.  I sewed on the eyes before I stuffed the doll.  I stuffed the doll before I crocheted and closed the last appendage.

Thanks for the guidance and inspiration, bonniegrrl!
