wow so easy to follow and look great, why didn’t I find you first lol
Hi Anita, I am happy you liked it 🙂
I agree with Anita! I wish I had found you first also!
Whenever I make an amigurumi creature, I like to make a little heart to stuff inside, to give it a little extra magic. This applique pattern is so quick and easy that I have it memorized, and every new friend I make gets a little extra love. This pattern was exactly what I was looking for and I use it frequently. Sincere thank you to the creator(s).
That’s such a cute idea! I might start putting hearts inside my Amigurumi too 🙂
