Fruit Bat (Flying Fox) amigurumi crochet pattern

USD $6.00  USD $5.50

This was the first PJ design I ever bought and it's still probably my favorite. I love bats, and this guy is the perfect mix of realistic but still cute. It's actually fairly easy to crochet and the shapes are basic. The most challenging part for me was sewing the wings on straight; it's very easy to start angling without realizing it. Also, if you've only ever done amigurumi, you'll need to know how to do standard crochet rows for the wings, but it's very easy and the simple trick for making the points on the wings really adds a lot to the design. I'll never tire of making this one!
