  1. 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).
