Postman Bunny Amigurumi Free Pattern

Materials
3.5mm / US E-4 crochet hook
2.5mm crochet hook (for the bag and heart applique)
Yarn:
– #3 / DK / light worsted yarn, 8ply, 80% cotton 20% Milk Fiber, in light beige, dark blue, marine blue, white, plus a small piece of light peach or light pink for the nose
 (I use a local shop yarn, that I find quite thick for a #3, an equivalent would be Paintbox Cotton Aran but keep the 3.5mm hook to obtain tight stitches and avoid gaps where the fiberfill shows)
– DMC Happy cotton shade 777 for the bag
– DMC Cotton Perle N°8 shade 938 to embroider the eyebrows
– Any 1meter piece of red yarn that fits a 2.5mm hook (or you can use the same DK yarn as the one for the body, and work with only 2 or 3 plies).

PS**: before fastening off, adjust the number of chains to obtain the length you like.

With red embroidery floss, (or with red yarn, splitting the plies and using only one ply with an embroidery needle) embroider the heart.
I used a ply of the brown yarn from the bag to embroider the address lines. (You can also use black or brown embroidery floss).

ASSEMBLY
1) Sew the head to the body.
2) Sew the ears to the head on round 2 and 3 of the top of the head.
3) Slip the mailman hat down the ears, and use ball point pins to pull a bit the last row of the hat and secure its position in a nice round shape.
4) Sew the arms one row below the top of the body.
5) Attach the heart on the hat.
6) Make the nose and eyebrows. You can also add a bit of pink blush on his cheeks.
