Here you will find mostly patterns for quick, small crochet plush or amigurumi. There are also tutorials for a few quick craft projects. Please see content sharing for terms on using these patterns and tutorials. If you spot a mistake or want clarifications for any of the patterns and tutorials please feel free to contact me.

*Note on crochet patterns: please note that the patterns are intended for crocheters who are familiar with basic stitches (i.e. chain, single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, slip stitch), common abbreviations (i.e. ch, sc, dc, tr, sl st), and crocheting in rounds. The patterns are usually quite straightforward though, so with some practice of the basic stitches I believe that an absolute beginner can successfully follow any of the patterns below. If you’re not familiar with crochet and interested in learning I’d recommend the comprehensive Lion Brand Learn-to-Crochet guide.

Happy crafting!
