Mini Amigurumi

Amigurumi is one of my favourite things to make to give as a gift! It’s so fun to be able to make your own stuffed animals. And the great thing about mini amigurumi is that the projects come together pretty quickly! And my kids love them! While they can be a little bit finicky if you’re working with fine yarn, the stitch count is lower so you can have a small toy made in a few hours or so. If you want a special handmade gift for the love in your life, check out one of these adorable patterns. You still have plenty of time to whip some up for Valentine’s day!

This Shihtzu puppy is absolutely adorable! We don’t have any pets in our house, but my kids love the idea of one. I think they like the stuffed dogs even more, though. Because as much fun as real dogs are to play with, they also do other things that my kids don’t like as much. And frankly, I’m happier with stuffed dogs as well. This little Shihtzu is just our speed.

And of course, you have to have a Kitty amigurumi. This sweet little kitty is so adorable and fits in the palm of your hand. One of the best things about an amigurumi kitty is it stays a kitten forever. It’s always cute and it never poops in your garden.

Speaking of gardens, as much as I know that bees are good for my garden, they kind of terrify me a little bit in real life. But not Barry the Bee! This little toy stands just 8 inches tall and has a cute little flower. With bright yellow and black stripes, this little doll is sure to add a pop of colour to any kids room.

Maybe Easter is on your mind. You can get making this Elendan Bunny amigurumi pattern to have an adorable little bunny rabbit for an Easter gift. I love the brushed yarn for the fur, which makes such a realistic-looking stuffed animal!

Of course, Baby Alien Amigurumi has been taking the internet by storm. Here’s an adorable little pattern to make your own tiny Baby Yoda crochet doll. All this little guy needs is a mug of broth to complete the look!

For a winter-themed gift, this Little Penguin amigurumi makes a cute little keychain or tiny toy to enjoy for little hands because it works up to be about 8 cm tall. So just a little guy!

The Valentine Minis Set is a cute set of Valentine’s-themed patterns that includes a little cupid doll, a little perfume doll, a little teddy bear doll and a little chocolate bar doll. A lovely little set to make for your valentine this year!

If you’re looking for a quick last-minute gift for a bookworm in your life, you can whip up one of these Simple Fox Bookmarks in almost no time! Fun bookmarks like these are eye-catching and hard to miss where you left off in your book!

This Little Tiger toy crochet pattern is a lovely little pattern to make for the jungle-loving kid in your life. He looks a little like Daniel Tiger, so if your loved one is a fan of that show, this is a great little pattern to make for him or her.

Or a super adorable Miniature bear amigurumi crochet pattern! How cute is this little guy?! You could easily personalize him by whipping up a quick scarf or hat! How sweet is he? I just love these amigurumi dolls that fit in the palm of your hand!

If you’re looking for something a little bit different this Amigurumi Seahorse might just be what you’re looking for! Such a sweet little stuffed seahorse makes a unique toy or keychain or zipper pull.

Or maybe your preferred sea creature is a crab! This Crochet crab pattern is adorable, cartoony stuffed animal pattern that is sure to amuse and delight its recipient and anyone who sees it! It’s just 11 cm/4.3 inches long, so you can take this little crab with you anywhere!

If you’re prepping for Easter, you can make an Easter Minis Set, which includes a pattern for Mr Chicken, Mr Bunny, Mr Easter Cake and Mrs Angel. A great set to celebrate the upcoming Easter holiday! And you have plenty of time to get making!

I can’t get over how cute this Roly the Hedgehog amigurumi pattern is! This well-written pattern includes 9 pages of written instructions and more than 60 step-by-step photos to guide you along to make this adorable stuffed toy!

I think this Pug amigurumi pattern is definitely one of my favourites. I made one for my son a couple of years ago and he LOVED it. So cute and quick, this pattern is super fun and a delightful last-minute handmade gift idea!

Check out one of these adorable patterns today, and use up some of your stash on one of these sweet tiny amigurumi toys! Or pin it for later to show your friends!

Amigurumi for Christmas

I just love amigurumi! According to Wikipedia: Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. The word is a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning “crocheted or knitted”, and nuigurumi, meaning “stuffed doll”. And this time of year is the perfect time to make some. Amigurumi is perfect for Christmas, as gifts for children, as decorations for your home or tree, as gifts for co-workers. They work up pretty quickly and are really fun to make; you can also use up some of your odds and ends of yarn since they’re usually pretty small and you can customise their colours to whatever you have on hand! So many people are delighted by amigurumi, it makes the perfect whimsical addition to this festive season! Check out these adorable stuffed crocheted creatures and pick out a pattern to start working on today!

How about this festive Little Christmas Deer Crochet Pattern? One pattern gives you all the instructions you need to make these little amigurumi deer dolls, with plenty of high-quality photos to walk you through it. Depending on the size of yarn you use, these little guys could be toys for kids or decorations for your tree!

How adorable are these gingerbread people? Again, here’s another pattern with instructions to make both tops: a Gingerbread Man and Girl Couple Amigurumi Pattern. How much fun would a set of these be for a newlywed couple for their first Christmas? They’re so sweet with all their decoration details!

I’m a sucker for gnomes! I love their big furry beards and festive hats on their squat, rotund bodies. Herbert the Christmas Gnome Amigurumi Pattern would make a great addition to my mantle (which is frankly looking a little sad this year… see my Instagram post about it). But I think this guy would spruce it right up!

Who can resist an adorable cartoon-ish Mr Santa Crochet Pattern? His cloud-like beard and little button eyes just draw you in. My kids were never really enamoured with Santa, and we never really forced them to sit on Santa’s knee because they always looked terrified of him. Besides, who wants to stand in line with kids for 20 minutes to traumatize your kids for an awful over-priced picture? My kids were slightly intrigued by the idea of the right jolly old elf, so I slightly regret not snapping a photo of them looking onto the spectacle of Santa visiting from a distance. I’m sure they would have been much more interested in a stuffed version of Santa like this cute little amigurumi doll.

Mr Pinny Crochet Amigurumi Pattern is a super cute, sweater-clad penguin doll ready to grace your Christmas tree with his chipper little face! It’s time for all the cold-weather creatures to come out and adorn our homes with their cuteness! I don’t know, though; do you think this little guy could use a hat? Or a scarf? He looks a little chilly. I think I’d make him a hat, too.

Of course, you don’t need to make Christmas themed Amigurumi to give out as a gift! You can make a stuffed toy that can be enjoyed year-round, like this Milo the Hipster Cat Amigurumi Pattern. What kid doesn’t want a stuffed cat in a hoodie? My kids love this kind of stuff and I’m sure yours would too!

Or if you have a princess-lover on your hands, this Princess Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Bundle would give you all the instructions you need to make a whole collection of princesses! These dolls are so adorable; how much more special will one of these dolls be to the recipient when they know it was made by your loving hands? That’s the beauty of handmade; so much pride involved in making and so much love felt in giving and receiving!

If you’re new to amigurumi, you could try something a little simpler, like this Crochet Star Amigurumi Pattern. Festive for the holiday season, but suitable to be displayed year-round. Make one with a thick, bulky yarn and you’d have a super fun pillow for a teen. It gets harder and harder to come up with good fun handmade gift ideas for teens as they get older. This would be a suitable option for an older kid and would make a fun addition to their bed.

Do you want a hippopotamus for Christmas? You can make one with this Crochet Hippo Amigurumi Pattern! This cuddly hippo would double as a super fun and functional pillow. Made with a big enough yarn, this friendly character would crochet up quickly and make a really snuggly stuffed friend for any kid. All this hippo needs is a cute little bow and to be displayed under the tree!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little introduction to various amigurumi characters you could make this Christmas. You’ve still got some time, so go pick up a pattern and get to work! What better things do you have to do as the weather turns colder than sit cosied up at home with your crocheting? Grab a pattern or pin it for later!

Cute & Creepy Crocheted Creatures

As Halloween approaches, I’m finding more and more adorable and creepy crochet patterns for disturbing little toys. I’m especially enjoying various zombie dolls with creative appliques and embroidery all over their bodies. If you have a Halloween-lover in your life or an older kid that just isn’t in to cute things anymore, I have got some handmade toys for you to make! Check out these great patterns!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Frankie the Zombie Teddy Bear is an adorably terrifying little stuffed toy to make any kid react with both affection and disgust. I love the patchwork and stitches all through the doll. So creative!

This Zombie Unicorn is a great Halloween-themed stuffed toy crochet pattern with crazy, bugged-out eyes and mesmerizing lollipop accessories. I love the yellow that dsMouseBears chose for this sample; it’s so creepy!

Amigurumi Zombirina is a fun choice for a little ballerina who loves creepy and cute things! I love her crazy hair! The pattern is available in both Spanish and English and is pretty small, designed with a 2.00 mm hook, but you could make her with any size yarn you’d like! That’s the great thing about dolls… as long as your gauge is consistent, it doesn’t really matter if you’re making it in the size written.

This Zombie Boy pattern is also a super fun pattern with large buck teeth and buggy eyes, he’s the perfect pattern to make when one of your favourite kids has requested a zombie stuffie!

This cute little Flap the Bat Amigurumi Crochet Pattern is a little less on the creepy side and a little more on the adorable side, especially with his rosy little cheeks!

This happy little Voodoo Doll crochet pattern would make a super fun pincushion, don’t you think?! We don’t all need little tomatoes to hold our pins, right? Why not a voodoo doll?!

This adorable Skeleton Teddy Bear is another loveable, but creepy looking stuffed animal by Krawka which is perfect for Halloween. How fun would it be to adorn your house with some creepy little stuffed animals as decorations?

Here’s a crocheted version of the Zombie from Plants vs Zombies, so if you have a gamer in your life who loves Plants vs Zombies, this little character would make a perfect creepy gift!

If you’re new to amigurumi but are interested in trying your hand at one of these crocheted stuffed toy patterns, you could start with this Zombie Pattern which has an easy step-by-step tutorial how to crochet Zombie doll. It includes 34 pictures and 12 pages of detailed instructions to walk you through it.

You can’t talk about creepy and cute characters without Jack Skellington! My eldest loves the Nightmare Before Christmas. This little doll here is a finished product and I couldn’t find a pattern for it, though he’s pretty similarly shaped to the Zombie above, that you could probably get a reasonable facsimile if you made a few changes.

I did find this Jack Skellington as Santa crochet pattern, which I think my kid would really love. It might make a super fun Christmas gift (secrets, please! Don’t spill the beans to my kid!).

What do you think? Do you have someone in your life who would appreciate one of these creepy and cute amigurumi characters? They’re perfect for Halloween or for anyone who has an appreciation for slightly more sinister stuffed toys! Pick up your favourite pattern today or pin it for later!

Need to improve your crochet skills for one of these projects? Check out Blueprint’s online crochet classes and learn at your own pace!

And naturally, you’ll need a little duck for your farm. And this Dilly the Duck amigurumi pattern fits the bill (ah? see what I did there?)

If I had a farm, I would absolutely need a cow. I love this chubby little Petra Cow amigurumi crochet pattern from Frog and Toad Creations.

We mustn’t forget the goats! Or they’ll bite our heads off! (AmIRight? Goats’ll eat anything!) Check out these sweet little amigurumi goats from PlanetJune!

And a horse, of course! This little beauty (Lucky the Horse) from Little Muggles Amigurumi Design is a lovely stuffed toy pattern, even if you weren’t trying to make a whole farm worth of stuffies!

Who could forget the Rooster? Maybe you’re not fancy with the crochet skills and you just want one of these adorable little crocheted roosters already made for you. Well, you’d be in luck because Brama Crochet will make this little Amigurumi Rooster in your choice of yarn colours.

Adorable Halloween Amigurumi

Halloween is coming up, so there’s no better time to start making some adorable little not-so-frightening handmade stuffed toys! There are so many fun patterns to make! These would make great decor items to spruce up your house for the spooky season ahead.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First off, check out this adorable bat pattern from the Etsy shop, Manuska. I love the lacy wings on this crocheted bat doll: such a unique feature! And she’s just so sweet worked up in the pink and grey with the little bow on her head! Not like a gross, dusty real bat at all! 

How are these little guys for adorable and non-scary Halloween amigurumi? Have you ever seen such cute little dolls? What a fun trio of costumed dolls. And you can get all three patterns together here. So cute.

If little ghosts are more your thing, check out this adorable little ghost amigurumi pattern. So sweet! He looks like he would work up really quickly for a last minute project… or maybe some little treats for the special trick-or-treaters in your neighbourhood!

Not wanting to leave my knitters in the lurch, if you’re a knitter, you should also check out this fabulous and sweet knitting pattern for a pumpkin-costumed stuffed bunny! So sweet! (I think I had a costume just like this one when I was little!)

Here’s another sweet little adorably innocent-looking Halloween pumpkin: it’s already crocheted up for you so you don’t have to do any work, but I’m sure you could find another pattern and modify it to make up a similar one for yourself if that was more your thing.

Just because monsters are usually scary, doesn’t mean they have to be. While these crocheted monsters with an underbite definitely sport a grumpy expression, there’s no denying they’re absolutely loveable!

Another adorable monster!!! This little monster-costumed doll crochet pattern would make a sweet little handmade gift for any child! Does she remind you of the little girl in Monsters Inc? Maybe not scary… definitely cute.

This sweet little monster looks shy and scared himself: no way he’s scaring anyone else! This little stuffed toy would make a fetching addition to any nursery! Perfect unique handmade gift for a child!

If you like these patterns, you should go pick one up from Etsy. There are many more adorable Halloween amigurumi patterns that I didn’t have time to tell you about. Etsy also has plenty of other Halloween inspiration here.

Start crocheting (or knitting) today with one of these great patterns, or pin it for later!

Harry Potter Patterns

It’s hard to believe that the first Harry Potter books hit the shelves over 20 years ago! My kids are all Potterheads (well, the last one is just starting the books now, but he will be)! We love Harry Potter! There are so many great Harry Potter inspired craft projects to try. I’ve found some great ones for you today!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Look at this amazing knitting pattern for this sweet Harry Potter doll by TutosDelphine! This pattern is available in both English and French and if you’re not a knitter, this is definitely a beautiful-looking pattern that will inspire you to learn! Gorgeous!

First thing’s first, get yourself sorted into a house! You can crochet this fun sorting hat pattern and figure out if you’re a Hufflepuff, a Gryffindor, a Ravenclaw or a Slytherin. (My daughter and I are Ravenclaws.)

I was so pleased to find a crochet pattern to make a snowy owl like Hedwig! And it’s a vintage pattern, which I think is cool. Honestly, most vintage patterns look a little wonky, IMHO, but I think this pattern looks great and would be perfect to make the Potterhead in your life their very own owl!

If you’re looking to make a unique gift for the Harry Potter fan in your life, you can’t go wrong with this adorable, grumpy Mandrake amigurumi crochet pattern! Thankfully these stuffed toys will not scream like a “real” mandrake!

This fall season with back to school and Halloween approaching just get me in the mood for Harry Potter. I’m so pleased to have started reading the books again with my youngest son. It’s been a while for me! I hope you enjoy these Harry Potter inspired knitting and crochet patterns!

Pin it for later!

Four adorable knit and crochet patterns inspired by Harry Potter! I love the Mandrake pattern! So cute!

Sol the Summer Doll

After writing up that top 10 summer Etsy picks post, I still found more adorable things to crochet for summer!!! I know it’s August and summer posts are usually written early when everyone’s excited and people are already talking pumpkin spice, but I’m still solidly in summer mode (sort of… ripping apart a bathroom and putting a new plumbing stack in is totally summer mode, right?). I still have a trip ahead of me too, so it’s not a bad idea to have a quick little project to keep my fingers busy while we travel.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Check out this adorable little doll pattern. At just 10 inches tall, she looks like she will make a sweet little doll for any kid. Her beach accessories complete the deal!

You can get the pattern on Etsy here. I hope you enjoy making her! If you do, please share your pictures as comments on Pinterest!

DIY Toys

Today, I have found some adorable amigurumi toys that you can make yourself! Cheap, mass-produced toys from the store have got nothing on these lovely, handmade dolls.

First up, Lea: a lovely, subdued crocheted toy doll amigurumi pattern. Gorgeous and mature. Look at her hair! So great.

Next up, Carl the Cactus; a 9-page printable PDF e-book with an adorable story written in the listing. Lalylala has such lovely crochet doll patterns. I can’t wait to make this one!

I can’t get enough of the patchwork finishing work on this adorable crocheted monkey girl. Sweet stripes and flowers complement this pattern perfectly. I think this would make such a sweet handmade baby shower gift.

Now check out this cute amigurumi crocheted bunny pattern, made with stripes and in any colour your want! I know Easter has passed, but there’s another one next year and now you have time to make one!

Carmen Rent has some of the most adorable doll patterns available right now. They have this stunning “Coraline” look to them and they’re so exquisitely detailed; they would make a lovely handmade gift for an older girl who is still into dolls. This doll Azul (what a fantastic name, right?) even has a beautiful detailed little dress pattern!

It’s not always easy finding handmade toy ideas for boys, but this pirate ship crochet pattern absolutely fits the bill. When I first shared it on Pinterest, it went nuts! People loved it!

Fraggle Rock was definitely a favourite 80’s tv show in my house and my favourite characters were definitely the Doozers. They didn’t get a lot of screen time, but thought they were so fun! This crochet pattern is a great realistic replica of a little Doozer!

Epic Kawaii is another one of my fav amigurumi designers right now. Such fun crocheted doll patterns and this super sweet little mermaid doll pattern is no exception. I love her adorable button eyes!

This crocheted lion pattern would make a great addition to a circus-themed nursery or party! I love the addition of the crown accessory to make this lion king of the jungle!

Go Bunny Go has lots of adorable doll patterns, where the doll is dressed up as something else. I think that’s such a fun idea! This long Nick the Teddy would be so lovely for a little one to cuddle up with at night!

Another bunny pattern! I don’t know what is so attractive about bunny rabbit patterns, but I love them! This adorable crochet pattern is so simple and adorable; it would make a super cute baby gift or you can start working on it now for next Easter!

I love finding unique patterns like this fantastic amigurumi parrot pattern. Bright and colourful, it reminds me of Rio and the vibrant colours of the different parrots and birds from that cartoon.

This stunning doll pattern is more for making a toy to show than play with, but look at the gorgeous detail on her! I love her riding boots and hat and the adorable hobby horse is amazing! I can’t wait to try this one out! So beautiful!

I’m a big fan of monster amigurumi patterns! There’s so much room for creativity because you don’t have to follow any rules! This fun orange monster with an underbite is named Webster, which I think is a fantastic name for a monster. Get the pattern here.

Five of the Best Amigurumi Animals to Crochet

5 Adorable Amigurumi Animals to Crochet. A crochet pattern round up by craft evangelist
Adorable Amigurumi Animals

One of my favourite crafts is crocheting. I learned to crochet from a friend in college, even though my mom had tried to teach me when I was a little younger. I don’t know what was wrong with me, but I kinda see the same spirit in my daughter, so maybe it’s a weird I-don’t-want-my-mother-to-teach-me-anything trait that runs in our family. Sorry, mom! I love ya, I was just weird.

My first project was a scarf, the gauge of which was tight beyond belief, but I got that sorted out and then crocheted a large blanket in a matter of days for my friend in time for Christmas. I’m pretty sure I just parked myself on the couch at my parents’ house when I was home for Christmas and crocheted for three days straight.

Later I learned how to make mittens from another friend and the rest is history, I guess. Once I learned how to increase and decrease, I had the basics for AMIGURUMI! It’s so fun! You can make stuffies! And potatoes with eyes! (haha). Since then I have made a lot of fun stuffed things. Like this banana.

Lately, I have been scouring the internet finding the best and cutest amigurumi stuffies to crochet. (Check out my amigurumi Pinterest board!) As much as I sometimes try to make up my own patterns, I’m not really a pattern writer (maybe one day…) and the time it takes for a pattern writer to test and create a new pattern is definitely worth the cost of some of the paid patterns available. Here are some of my favourites I’ve found recently.

Look at this amazing owl pattern! I love the detail on the belly (breast? what do you call that part of a bird?) So sweet. Owls are great. This pattern is a free Ravelry download.

Cuddle Me Fox — and check out this tiny fox pattern! So cute! Foxes are really trendy right now and this little guy looks like he’ll come together quickly. This little guy is available on amigurumi.today as a free pattern.

What a sweet crocheted fox pattern! Fits in your hand!

Boxy Bear is another free pattern for a new crocheter. Nice straight seams. I love the way he comes together. Really cute.


Isn’t this little Monkey pattern cute? This pattern is available from allaboutami; it was published last year in honour of 2016, the Chinese year of the Monkey. If you’d like a nice printable version of the pattern, it’s available for a small fee here.

Cute animal studies to crochet!

Tourist Giraffe This little giraffe is named Kenny and he comes with a camera!!! How cute is that? I love this little giraffe! He’d make a great gift to crochet!

That’s my quick little round-up of some of my favourite stuffed animals to crochet. Pick one and find your hook and happy crocheting!
