Amigurumi Bat

Bat Amigurumi

I am so excited to give this little bat to my friend who owns a local coffee shop in town.  Being new to the neighbourhood and knowing I’m only here for a few months, she has made me feel right at home and has always been so generous and kind.  Why am I making her a bat, you ask?  I noticed that she wears a lot of “Batman” shirts and has a fondness for bats.  (I get it, I love bats too!)

Once again, I purchased this pattern from Son’s Popkes because I love all of her patterns.  I feel this pattern was one of her best ones to date!  It had so many great details including how to place the eyes correctly (sometimes a challenge for me) and how to embroider the lines on the wings.

It turned out that I needed a little extra guidance with the embroidery part so I found a great video tutorial here.

I used Vanna’s Choice yarn in “Taupe” and “Charcoal Grey.”  I used a 3.5mm hook, polyester stuffing, and 6mm safety eyes.

Overall, I love how it turned out and I think my friend will love it too!

Stay tuned for some new sewing projects in the works!
