Mini-Droids!

Mini-Droids!

You may have seen my crochet version of the Google Android logo here. I also have posted there the pattern to make your own and a link to where you can buy them from my store. I’ve made many a Droid now, my fingers fairly know how on their own. Now, for something new to mix it up!

We may have been called “The Droid Family” before. It may now be true. I might have Androiditized (new word!) my little ones, myself, and my husband and laughed to myself while posing all of our mini-Android counterparts for this photo shoot. My only question is… have I now gone over the edge? Has months of making crocheted Droids made me go insane? Am I now one of those weird crocheting ladies instead of a cool crocheting lady? You tell me. ;) It is possible that I have lost all perspective.

Now, if you want to make little Androids for your little ones or just for a smaller version of the big guy (maybe to put on your key-chain or hang from your rear view mirror or something) you can find my patterns below for Mini-Droid and Baby Droid. If you’re interested in ordering a custom family of Droids feel free to contact me for info. A 5 Droid family like above would be $77 with free shipping within the USA. I have gone ahead and put the Mini-Droid and Baby Droid on my store too.
