Amigurumi frog

I had a fab book for Christmas about making amigurumi creatures. Now it has been a long, long time since I have done any crochet. ( We're talking childhood here!) so I thought I'd have a go at it and see if I could still do it! Unfortunately my efforts make him seem a little overweight, but he is  perfect for all us new year dieters! We can look at his body and instead of saying " Phwor" we can all say " I must stick to that diet,!!" Well, he'll come in handy for singing "hmn, hmn said the little green frog one day"http://www.singup.org/songbank/song-bank/song-detail/view/150-little-green-frog/ at work and if I make four more I'll be able to use him for five little speckled frogs as well! I also need to get the right sized crochet hook because that should help with his weight loss!! If only New year diets were that flipping easy!!!!
