Hello amigurumi lovers and beautiful visitors, I wanted to share the free amigurumi patterns for you here. In my article I will share 1 pattern and how to make it for you. At the end of my article, I will share amigurumi patterns that can generate ideas for you.

Embroidery floss for detailing
6×8mm (or 5mm) oval safety eyes
Using these materials , the insects will measure approx. 14cm
The wire used is only a suggestion and you can adapt it to whatever you have at home.

No need to fill.
Fold the wing in half and sew just the outer loops of each string, leaving a long tail for sewing the wing to the body.
Try to meet the 4 wings in the center of the back. Looking at the butterfly from the front, be sure to overlap the bottom wing and add a few stitches to join the junction of the top wing with the bottom wing, making sure the finish is invisible.

Use your imagination to decorate. I made two circles of different sizes. Remember to repeat the same mirrored pattern on the other side.

(Bee and Butterfly)

Chain 9, skip 2 chs, 1 dc, in this same ch, add 1 hdc and 1 sc, continue on the other chs: sl st 6. Sew it on the head, using the center of the eyes as a reference (safety eyes or embroidered).

6 sc in the magic circle, 1 sl st to close. Leave a tail for sewing.

Sew the cheeks close to the eyes. Sew the wings and the anteannae following the photos and the corresponding patterns.
Use a finer thread to embroider the eyes, it will make the work more delicate.

All Finished.
