Hello everyone !

I propose to you today a new free amigurumi pattern. It is Marcelline the little pig. It can be done fairly quickly and is quite simple. The only difficulty may be in the assembly of the two faces with the ears. If you have questions for this step, you can leave me a comment and I will try to explain.

→ place the safety eyes on one of the sides of the head.

→ embroider eyelashes with your black embroidery thread.

→ sew the nose as in the photo.

→ Join the 2 sides together with sc and do not forget to incorporate the ears in this step. When you reach ear level, you will not be able to make sc between the two parts. It will be necessary to perform Slip stitch with the 2 sides and the ear.
