I live in Canada, but I know that many people around the world are feeling the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We’re thinking of you down there, USA. If you’re sad and don’t know what to do, maybe commemorating the life of RBG with some thoughtful crafting time is the way to go. Regardless, there are some pretty fun craft patterns out there that are worth considering to remember and carry on the legacy of this fine woman.

Here’s another Amigurumi Ruth Bader Ginsburg Crochet Pattern from Hooray It’s Crochet. She looks a little grumpy here, but given what she had to deal with, I get it.

I hope your appreciate this round up of Ruth Bader Ginsburg inspired patterns. I don’t have a lot of gushing to do about these patterns, I just wanted to share them because I know that when I feel sad, sometimes making something is meditative and helpful. It gives me time to think and also create something in the process. Take care of each other, peeps. Grab one of these patterns or pin it for later.
