Birdhouse Kawaii Cuddler™

Crochet Pattern by 3amgracedesigns

Free crochet pattern: Birdhouse Kawaii Cuddler amigurumi in assorted Red Heart yarns by 3amgracedesigns for Underground Crafter

Hello Makers! I’m Donna from 3amgracedesigns. We’re so honored that we get to hang out with you today!

I’m absolutely convinced the crochet community is filled with the nicest, kindest people around. I’ve met and been inspired by so many amazing human beings through Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest all via a little hashtag #crochet.

My goal for 3amgracedesigns was to give back to an amazing fiber community that supported me through some of life’s darkest challenges.  Crochet kept my hands busy when my heart was hurting over post-partum depression with my first child, unsuccessful infertility treatments trying to have a second child, and battling a rare form of cancer in 2015. Life can be hard – but crochet has always provided beauty & healing from the ashes.

Free crochet pattern: Birdhouse Kawaii Cuddler amigurumi in assorted Red Heart yarns by 3amgracedesigns for Underground Crafter - with cloud and bird

I launched 3amgracedesigns with our Big Bang Theory C2C Crochet-along. Soon after, God crossed my path with Michaelene and we connected on so many levels within our hearts. We’ve been designing together ever since. We’re 2600 miles apart in distance yet we still finish each other’s thoughts & designs in a way that astonishes us both. We can’t wait to see where God takes our Maker journey next.

Together we have designed nine C2C Crochet-alongs, our most recent being for the popular video game Fortnite. We also love all things kawaii and have designed over 100 Kawaii Cuddlers, a line inspired by our love for food with faces. They are a bit bigger than traditional amigurumi – they just have TOO much personality to be small!

Today we’re sharing our Birdhouse Kawaii Cuddler™ pattern.  This is a beginner level design and we hope you enjoy making it as much as we loved creating it for you!
