Tiny Armadillo

The thirteenth tiny thing is a Tiny Armadillo.


He doesn’t know what to do with himself since he isn’t dead on the side of the road.

This one is dedicated to my dad, who has been requesting a knitted armadillo for years!

  1. OMG!! MY FAVE!!!

    How about:
    tiny fruit bowl
    tiny aquarium
    tiny bicycle
    tiny skyscraper
    tiny fan
    tiny window (who wants a new view)
    tiny toast
    tiny grill
    tiny burger/steak
    tiny money/credit card/wallet
    tiny banana bunch

  2. Cute. I grew up in Amarillo, TX. That’s their unofficial mascot. Seriously the purl bumps make a great shell.

  3. Thanks Anna! I’ve never seen one right-side up before. They’re really cute! I wonder why so many live by the road? Thanks for a long time wish granted. Love, Papa

  4. I love this one too!! Some more ideas of me:
    A tiny usb-stick, whale (i think this one deserves it the most i think, it’s the biggest living thing on earth), a tiny mold/microbe, or what would be cool to, a tiny monument (taj mahal, eiffel tower, big ben, piramid, borobudur).

    Whatever you make, you make my day with every single one of them :D

  5. A little owl? Please? They’re my fave.

    Hmmm…so many good ideas, I bet all mine have already been mentioned:

    (In addition to owl)

  6. I just discovered your site and blog recently. I love your patterns! I have been enjoying your tiny things you’ve come up with so far. I just died of laughter when I saw the caption for this one. I did a cross country trip and saw so many dead armadillos in LA and TX. I was so bummed that I’ve only seen squished armadillos. This little guy is soooooo cute!! I am with everyone else who is begging for patterns, these are awesome!

  10. Must come out of lurk mode to say that armadillo is awesome!!! Now he needs a tiny horned toad friend and and aardvark too! Lots of great ideas being posted. Love the tiny stuff, love it!!!

  11. I don’t know what’s the cutest one. Every day I think that days is the cutest one.

    This one is really, really darn cute, though. And very excellently designed and executed.

  12. Love it!

    I don’t know if this has been suggested yet, but what about a tiny coffee pot and tiny cup of coffee?

    I have to say, I find myself eagerly awaiting the next day’s tiny thing….just love it.

  14. Oooooo!!!!! I’d love a pattern for that little guy! I finally saw a live one this past June, must have been his big brother.

    pretty please :)

  15. My aunt totally loves armadillos. How about:

    tiny coral reef with fish an crabs and shrimp and anemone

  16. A tiny weber grill!

    A tiny T-rex!

    A tiny SUV!

    A tiny french fry box!

    A tiny box cheese grater!

  17. Hi,
    I’m a big fan of Mochimochi land stuff, and I was hoping you could make the following:

    tiny cat (or kitty, as the case may be.)
    tiny heart
    tiny book

    That’s all…pretty lame, but most “good” ones are gone.

  18. Those are good suggestions, C4K — in fact, Anna has already made one of them! Tiny hearts were among the first Mochimochi Land creations.

  19. i love your tiny things! here are some of my suggestions:
    tiny lamp
    tiny fan
    tiny chandelier
    tiny bottle of cleaner
    tiny sponge
    tiny hood ornament
    or a tiny street sign

  20. I love your blog and these gorgeous tiny things. Although gorgeous doesn’t seem like the right word. To bad. They are. Will have to knit myself a tiny ‘puter too.

    What about a tiny swine flu virus? I think one of his relatives has moved in at our house. (cough cough )

  21. i was thinking, maybe you could make tiny nailpolish bottle, or a tiny hair-dryer – that’d be funny

    or a tiny oven (that eats things) or microwave

  22. Not sure if any of these have already been suggested:

    tiny dragon
    tiny unicorn
    tiny Pegasus
    tiny headless horseman
    tiny 4 horsemen of the apocalypse
    tiny guitar
    tiny polyhedral dice

  23. My favourite so far. The knitted texture suits him so well. I also like the computer with mouse. I’ve made a tiny world globe before in paper over a foam ball (a bit smaller than a golf ball) and that was pretty challenging. I didn’t appreciate how many islands make up Canada until doing that.

  24. Hi Anna,

    I concur with all the above– great miniatures!
    The armadillo is adorable! Have you seen Don the Dillo on Ravelry? I downloaded him months ago. He is super-cute! Would make a great big -er, gigantic brother for your dillo. The pattern is free! Best of all, he even can roll into his shield. My oldest son has requested one.

    He is designed by gabytheriault on Ravelry.

    Hope this helps! ^_^
