After a long day of being stitched, stuffed and embroidered you know there's nothing an amigurumi likes to do better than kick back and watch a little TV. Now, thanks to Etsy seller eureekaswindow they can do just that with this Retro TV Set Crochet Pattern. I'm not sure if this one should be called the Cute Thing of the Week or the Strangest Thing of the Week, but I'm definately giving bonus points for the use of Steven Colbert. As eureekaswindow says in her product description:
"I love to arrange my softies and dolls and snap a few pics of them, so I was inspired to make a little TV to create a "comfy little living room scene". Make your own crocheted TV and glue on a pic of your favorite late night talk show host, sitcom character or news anchor."
My suggestion, instead of glueing on your favourite TV personality, I bet you could use velcro or carefully placed magnets so that you could have changeable TV programs. Watching the Colbert Report is great, but once it's over, your Amigurumis may want to catch a rerun of Futurama or The X-Files and you'd hate to deny them this option, right?
The pattern sells for $5.75, is six pages long and comes in PDF Format.
