UPDATE 2-20-11: *The Droid Robot is available again at my store!* Drooooooiiid!

This was a super fun project. I started it for my husband but after a few revisions I feel the little dude is ready to make his appearance. My husband loves his Google Android phone and here’s my version, in crocheted amigurumi form, of the Google Android logo.

This dude is available for sale in my store here. The Jingle Turtle that I blogged about before is also on my store website for sale and hopefully, you’ll see a few more new products soon.
