Sunny the Fox Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Oct 19, 2019



Hello my crafty friends!


Here I am with a new adorable amigurumi project that I hope you'll like it...Sunny the Fox!


I particularly enjoyed designing this little fox. The shape of the doll is very simple but I played with the seamlessly color change to create the fox face...how cute is that?


Have you noticed that the short tail has been attached to the side of the leg instead of the back?...I though this was a nice way to keep the stuffed doll simple, fun and slim!


The finished item is about 5" tall... so it could also work as a perfect crib mobile attachment.
