I couldn’t resist making up an adorable mini Dalek while on my mini ami roll! Even though Daleks are usually not cute and adorable, this one definitely is! You can make him any color combo you’d like. This guy would also be awesome as a tree ornament (or to hang from the rear view mirror!) I’m not a very festive person but I may just have to make a few extra of these for our tree this year! 🙂
