This sweet little deer is not difficult to crochet and works up using only single crochet stitches, although some details can be a bit fiddly to make. Arms and legs are attached using doll joints (or buttons) which makes them movable.
If you are already an expert toy maker, you have probably heard about all these tips before (and most likely are using them as well). But for anyone new in the world of amigurumi, I thought I would put together a little list with techniques I found really improved the look of my toys.
My little hippo now has a rhino cousin - just as tiny and cute and really fun to make.
I've been wanting to add more mini animals to my collection, just like I did with the sheep, and I finally got around to it, starting with a small zebra.
I have already made little bunnies and a cat using the same basic body pattern, but I think it works great as a teddy bear as well.
