The LEGO Store near me had a huge bin with all kinds of parts to create your own minifig, or you could use a specialty ready-made minifig from a set, or a LEGO keychain with the pin removed.

Plastic Bag String, or plain yarn (I used standard plastic bags. You can learn how to crochet with plastic bags here)
Crochet Hook (I used size I. You can adjust as needed)
Tapestry Needle (the super cheap, big plastic kind)
Button (I used a cover-your-own so it would match)
I used 9 bags for this project. The strips shown above are from just 4 bags.
The crochet stitches used are chain stitch, single crochet, and double crochet. A whip-stitch is also used.
1 cup of raw almonds 3 tbs of coconut oil (liquified) 1 1/2 tbs of honey
salt??? No salt, trust me.
MAKES 1 CUP, TIME : 10 - 20 min
As you know, food processors can operate for longer periods of time without burning the motor out, and good old coffee bean grinders require a user to pulse the motor for short periods of time. In a food processor the almonds would churn long enough to produce their own oils. That being said, do not burn your coffee bean grinder motor out, and if you follow these instructions, you should be fine. Divide your cup of almonds in half and grind on the grinder for 1 minute in intervals of 10-15 second pulses.
Pour into a bowl.
