Toy soldier amigurumi
I have recently been struggling a bit to come up with new and original christmas amigurumi ideas - i have been trying to think of something that hasn't been done before, and it proved quite difficult. After unsuccessfully coming up with anything i asked my husband james what he thought i should crochet - A toy soldier was his reply. Being a girl i have never owned a toy soldier before and wasn't quite sure exactly what one should look like, so after trawling internet pictures and the odd bit of input from james i think i have come up with a corker. Once i got started i just couldn't stop adding detail!! first the epaulettes, then the detail on the hat and then i even crocheted som brass buttons to go on the front of the uniform!
I have listed him for sale on etsy and will be adding the pattern pdf soon!! x
