Tiny Armadillo Posted on July 17, 2009 by Anna 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!

OMG!! MY FAVE!!!
tiny fruit bowl
tiny window (who wants a new view)
tiny money/credit card/wallet
tiny banana bunch
Cute. I grew up in Amarillo, TX. That’s their unofficial mascot. Seriously the purl bumps make a great shell.
My official favorite! I have a plush dillo on my computer at work. :o)
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
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
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)
Tiny wheelie bin
Tiny Stackable Cats
Tiny Pile-able Pups
Heck, if you don’t make the last three, I certainly will!!!
eeeee! what a cutie! :)
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!
a tiny pony
a tiny record player
a tiny frog
s tiny chicken
s tiny lunchbox and thermos
What about a tiny:
beehive/comb (with or without teensy bees to go with)
ice cream cone
train (engine, freight car, passenger car, caboose, monorail, etc)
tiny bag w/ burger and fries
tiny soda can
tiny pan w/ food cooking
This is my favorite too.
Way super adorable!
Thanks for sharing.
The texture and the ears are divine.
Great job! I look forward to checking my feeds every day because of your tiny creations.
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!!!
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.
oh my gosh!!! this rocks!!!
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.
This is great!! Very cute and expertly executed….
Adorable! I love your work so much.
Tiny Thing Suggestion: Paper crane
omg, this is the cutest thing!
I love the tiny knit series!
you should totally make a tiny camera! it would be so cute
Tiny versions of:
Sleepy Snake & Mischievous Mouse
And some of my other ideas:
tiny bottle of pills
tiny hair brush
tiny tape & tape recorder
tiny video ( He’s sad because everyone likes dvds better )
tiny box of matches
tiny broken glass ( as in what you drink out of)
tiny broken sunglasses
tiny moldy bread ( my favorite )
tiny garbage truck
tiny rusty nail
Please please please choose one (or more) of my ideas!!!! :)
A tiny robot! (Though it’s probably already been suggested.)
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 :)
My aunt totally loves armadillos. How about:
tiny coral reef with fish an crabs and shrimp and anemone
Tiny gnome!!! :)
A tiny weber grill!
A tiny T-rex!
A tiny SUV!
A tiny french fry box!
A tiny box cheese grater!
tiny bunny slippers :)
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.)
That’s all…pretty lame, but most “good” ones are gone.
Those are good suggestions, C4K — in fact, Anna has already made one of them! Tiny hearts were among the first Mochimochi Land creations.
i love your tiny things! here are some of my suggestions:
tiny bottle of cleaner
tiny hood ornament
or a tiny street sign
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 )
Okay THIS one is now my favourite! Great knit-sculpting!
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
Not sure if any of these have already been suggested:
tiny headless horseman
tiny 4 horsemen of the apocalypse
tiny polyhedral dice
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.
I love the armadillo. It’s really sweet!
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! ^_^
I would love the see a tiny sea cow!
love to see, sheesh, maybe I need a tiny copy editor.
Oh, I love it! so much detail for being the size of a peanut!
Tiny… computer? ipod? something? calculator? maybe…?
