Amigurumi are knit or crochet animals/plushies. They are cute, handmade, stuffed toys that are Japanese in origin. Amigurumi toys are almost always animals with round bodies, somewhat large heads and small limbs. The goal is to create something that is very 'Kawaii' or cute. They are usually done by repeating a single crochet stitch in the round.

With the popularity of manga and anime, amigurumi is becoming trendy as well. There are many patterns available in book form or free online. See the related link for an example.

Cute plush toys are sewn from textile, stuffed with a soft materal, for example, cotton. One recent example of plush toys is Ted from the movie Ted. Other examples include Amigurumi from Japan, which is cute with a big head.

I was unable to find a stitch diagram for crocheting a sackboy. There are copyright issues when you are attempting to make a copyrighted character, and you would have to have a licensing agreement with Sony (owners of PS3), or Media Mart (I think it is), to get such licensing. This generally costs plenty of money, and independent designers don't often have that type of money available to use for such licensing. The best that I could do was find a fairly well written out pattern instructions online on eHow.com (link attached), this might help you work out the pattern. Another choice would be to look around for other amigurumi stitch diagrams and modify those to make a sackboy. I have attached a link from Crochet Pattern Central of their amigurumi free patterns, for you to look through and see if you can find such a pattern. It's not easy to find free online crochet stitch patterns, I know, I prefer using them myself. I have often found that I end up struggling to read through directions and making my own stitch diagram, so that I can crochet a project.

The basic meaning is 'you are ugly'. It can also mean 'you are mean'. This is mean as in 'mean and nasty', not as in 'ungenerous'.

No they are not mean. Well they can be mean if you are mean to them. But they are mostly sweet and loving dogs.

No, but sometimes "average" means "mean" - when it doesn't mean median, geometric mean, or something else entirely.
