Bonnie the Jellyfish Free Crochet Pattern
The deep blue is such a fascinating place. It is inhabited by marvelous and mysterious creatures, and this is one of the reasons why, as for nursery decor, the "Under-the-sea" theme is one of the most popular among parents.
Colorful sea prints, fabrics and toys can create the perfect nautical room for your little one! ...and when it comes to toys, we can add our personal touch working with hook and yarn, right?
I specifically designed this cute Jellyfish as a crib mobile attachment.
The bright colors and the long tentacles work perfectly to draw the baby's attention, don't you think?
You can also work this project with chenille chunky yarn to create a happy super soft plush jellyfish for your kid!
As you can see there are so many options...just free your imagination and play with yarn and colors to crochet your favorite jellyfish amigurumi!
