The PDF patterns are each 20 pages long, available for $5 apiece or $8 bundled, on both Gumroad and Etsy! I recommend these patterns for crocheters who are already familiar with making amigurumi. If you purchase one of my patterns and you need help or something in the pattern is confusing, I am happy to offer email support.
NOTE: Gumroad is Instant Download and accepts credit cards only. Etsy accepts credit cards and paypal and is also Instant Download.
If you buy a pattern or pass it along, thank you so much for your support! I’m hoping to make Isabelle and Digby next :D
trick-or-crossing-deactivated20 asked: Hello! I'm thinking of taking up crochet but I'm having a hard time finding tutorials for making dolls. Do you have any tips or helpful tutorials you used to learn? Or is it something you learned on your own?
I didn’t personally know anybody who crocheted so I had to teach myself with books and YouTube videos, and it took me a few weeks to get comfortable enough with the basics to start making dolls from patterns. I think the most helpful thing was buying some cheap yarn and improvising on my own and getting a feel for how it worked. It took a few more months after that for me to feel like I was ready to start making my own patterns.
I started writing up a bit of my own tutorial but it started to take a while, I’ll post that later! In the meantime, here are some helpful links that cover the basics:

As far as books go, I recommend:
Hope that helps! I mostly recommend just trying things out and experimenting, you’ll get the hang of it soon enough and it’s a lot of fun. Once you get past the initial learning curve, it’s super easy and it’s a great way to make dolls and cute little things. I love crochet because it’s a really friendly craft and if you mess up, it’s no big deal and you can always rip out your stitches and just re-do them until you get them right.
I recommend buying some sewing pins, yarn needles, polyfil stuffing and stitch markers, always always always mark the beginning of each round and you’ll never get lost! And If you’re planning on designing your own patterns, keep a pen and a notebook handy and write down every single thing you do, exactly as you do it. That way, if you’re ever planning on sharing the pattern with others, you’ll have the exact instructions. It’s also just a good way to become aware of what you’re doing, for your own sake. It seems like extra work, but you’ll be thankful you did it later. That’s all I can think of for now!
Almost there!! Just need her arms, apron and the white parts on her neck ruff. I’ve been working on this for so long I’m not sure how I feel about it anymore. My hands are so tired ouch
I got Animal Crossing New Leaf yesterday… I’ve never played AC before so this is super exciting! Cue me playing it forever and also making amigurumi of all the characters. Is it obvious who this one is gonna be yet? > 3 >
