Amigurumi Garden Pal

This cutie is in the Crochet Today May/June 2009 issue and couldn't be sweeter!  You can find it on the  Crochet Today webite and purchase the back issue.

I do many of these for new mommies in a neutral, no flower or dress. I tie a coordinating ribbon, or in the mom's fav color, around the neck. Often times I just stitch simple "sleepy" eyes instead of the plastic doll eyes and a little belly  button.  Of course, if it is for a little boy, omit the flower "barrette"!  Always a big hit at the baby shower. 

It would be a really cute Easter gift as well.

It is quite a bit larger than the photo shows....about 10" high or so.




The picture above is from the magazine.  You can see it is a good size toy.

Happy hooking,
Sheila
