Every year I make lots of tiny amigurumi creatures to sell at my son's school Christmas bazaar. I've haven't got round to posting photos of everything I made for last year, but in the meantime, here are a few that I've written up the patterns for. All four patterns are together in one document that you can download at the end of this post.

Tiny Two-tone Turtles

These are a variation on a pattern I've already posted for little turtles - about 2" from head to tail - that you can easily make into keychains. You can make the shells plain, but if you use spike stitch and two colours you get these lovely patterns on the shells.







Baby Octopuses

With bodies that are less than 1.5" across, you can make a tiny baby octopus with long wiggly legs, or cute little stumpy ones. I've used safety eyes here, but you cn just as easily embroider the eyes, or sew on small buttons.



Wee Sheepie

Maybe it's a bit late to make this little sheep for Easter, but she's so small that you might just have time!



Have fun!

I love octopuses, they are one of my favourite creatures. I may have to learn to crochet just so I can have some of these teeny tiny ones!

Thanks everyone!

I think the sheep is best if you use some nice natural looking wool, especially for the body.
