This little guy has flown to Australia this week to take part in Softies for Mirabel. Each year Pip from Meet Me at Mike's runs a handmade toy drive for some kids that need extra cuddles at Christmas.
He is actually not so little - the biggest toy I have made so far (probably 25cm sitting) - and the pattern is from one of Ana Paula Rimoli's books, Amigurumi Two! Her books have cute crochet projects that are easy to follow and sometimes she has free patterns on her blog too.
If you can make a toy the instructions are above or visit here for more info.
