Victor the Mushroom Free Crochet Pattern



The Michigan Fall hasn’t disappointed this year and has gifted us with the most amazing colors again. I've been enjoying taking long walks into the woods to get the best look at the nature around, smell the autumn scents, walk onto the crunchy leaves...


...and meet little creatures as this cute red-and-white spotted toadstool!


His name is Victor - he's a friendly and fun little mushroom!

___________________________________________________________________________________________


I had a lot of fun designing and crocheting Victor.

It is a fairly quick project that can be personalized with just a little bit of creativity!
