Beach Turtle Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

While the days are getting shorter, darker and chillier, here in Melbourne, I can't help but day dream of the summer season long past. I have always been a bit of a summer lover. And what is not more iconic of summer than a delightful day at the beach, when the water is warm, and the breeze is calm.  Ahhhhh, I miss summer! So in celebration of summer I have created some Amigurumi toys - all dressed up in their bathers, floaties, and swimming caps, ready for a great fun day at the beach.

The first in this series is the turtle. Beach turtle. 


Amigurumi Beach Turtle is worked bottom up with legs and arms joined as you go. The only sewing is to attach the turtle back. Floaties and bathing cap are removable. You can find the crochet pattern for the turtle at my Roaming Pixies Etsy Shop or click on the BUY NOW link to be redirected to Ravelry. 

You can request a custom order for this finished toy at my Etsy shop also too.

Thanks for looking and visit soon to see the rest of the beach clan.

Spider Amigurmi - Crochet Pattern

My three year old and I often wonder what happens to all his missing socks. Does the washing machine absorb them? Do they disintegrate on the clothes line? Where do they go?Then one day we knew! We discovered Mr Sneaky Spider, hiding behind the couch, all decked out in his sneakers and socks....Naughty Mr Sneaky.

Now that we knew what happened to all those missing socks we were ready to tell Mr Sneaky Spider what we thought of his silly, naughty, sneaky sock-stealing shenanigins. But then we looked into those eight beady eyes and we knew he begged forgiveness.

We realised then, that he really is rather friendly, Mr Sneaky.  My son finds him rather the most cuddly, hug-able spidery friend you could wish for. 

Crochet Pattern Notes

Mr Sneaky is worked bottom up. He is entirely seamless so no sewing is involved. The eight legs are worked into your work as you go. He is also a fantastic scrap buster as you can use left over bits of yarn to create his socks and shoes. Mr Sneaky Spider pattern is available to buy from Roaming Pixies Etsy shop or you can click the BUY NOW button above to buy the crochet pattern from my Ravelry Store.
