Free amigurumi pattern: Tuxedo Sam

29 May

Tuxedo Sam is a tubby little Sanrio penguin who loves to eat.

He likes to be called Tuxedo-san; Sam is too old-fashioned, he thinks.

Fasten off and leave a long end for sewing.

Weave the long end of the embroidery floss to the centre then make three loops over the piece to shape the bow.

Tie a knot with the shorter end at the back.

Crochet an oval…

And loop, loop, loop.

Assembly

  • Sew on the beak.
  • Flatten the white tummy piece and sew it on the body.
  • Sew on the feet and arms.
  • Add some stuffing to the sailor hat to keep it in shape. Flatten the brim on Tuxedo-san’s body and sew it on – be sure to sew on the protruding part of the hat so the edges can be folded up later. Curve up the ends when you’re done.
  • Sew on the red bow.
  • Ta da!

        The dark brown embroidery floss was used to sew in the eyes:)
