During November, on the Facebook page, I have repeatedly talked about the circus themed amigurumi contest hosted by Amigurumi Patterns. I did not want to miss it this year and I did it. I got two entries… I can not believe it!
(If you have participated, leave a comment or write me, I’m curious!)

Before presenting the bird and rodent I want to explain briefly what this contest is.
Every year, three years now, the website amigurumipatterns.net presents a theme for a new contest, the only rules are: amigurumi and originality. And the prizes are really, really, irresistible, are the perfect excuse to take the time to design and make a new quirky amigurumi character.
This year’s theme is Circus. I’m not passionate about the real circus, the one with real animals, but a circus with wool, cotton and plastic eyes puppets that do somersaults in a fire of red and orange tissue paper is much more in my comfort zone and was fun to think about subjects even more weird than usual: A parrot on the unicycle and a stilter mouse fond of popcorn.

Steno the mouse is a stilt walker that likes to make jokes around the circus. He scares the elephants, awakes the hippos, mess up the lion’s mane and steals the popcorn to visitors! He is greedy and spiteful but knows how to be a loving and trusted friend.
Carlo the parrot is always inside the circus tent at the center stage to present the show. He is a circus expert, a big talker and a good entertainer. But he has a strange habit, he goes around with a bizarre unicycle!
