Brother Frogs from another Mother

My little friend Liam is coming to town and he loves frogs!  So, as a special surprise, I made these brothers from another mother:

First up, “Frog” from Crocheted Wild Animals by Vanessa Mooncie:

I decided to deviate from the pattern by mixing two different shades of green yarn.  And instead of making each toe and finger separately, I crocheted them continuously onto the foot itself (less sewing that way!).  I also used a safety eye instead of crocheting an eye from yarn, as well as making an eyeball instead of half an eye and attaching it to the lid:

Second, “Kirk the Frog” by Lisa Jestes Designs in Zoomigurumi 4:

Cute – he kinda looks like Kermit but he’s called “Kirk”!

Can’t wait to see Liam’s face when I give them to him!
