Amigurumi Camera Crochet Pattern

by | All Designs, Crochet, Free Patterns, Kids & Toys

The Amigurumi Advent Calendar Crochet-Along is coming to an end! I thought it’d be appropriate to share this amigurumi camera as the last design in this 25-amigurumi series, so you can “take a picture” of all the little ornaments you made. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the different designs this past month and continue making your favorites all year long!

This amigurumi camera body is made in the round, and seamed, but in the shape of a rectangle similar instead of a circle. You don’t add any embellishments to it, since the face will be added to the lens, so you just stuff it and get a simple amigurumi block. Like the amigurumi backpack, I used the beginning tail to fill in any gaps that I saw from the chain stitches at the bottom

Then, the lens is like every other round amigurumi, where you start with a magic circle. But leave the back open to sew onto the camera body. Add the eyes and face to the lens similar to the Peppermint Candy, then use the end tail from your lens to sew it to the body. In the photo example I did not stuff the lens at all, so it caves in which makes the face seem a little warped. I thought the effect, but you may want to stuff the lens lightly to push the face out a bit.

Because this amigurumi is so small, I chose not to put too many details on the camera, so the only thing left is the button you click to take the picture. Simply work a magic circle and an extra row, then sew that onto the top of the camera body.

After all the other amigurumi designs, I think this one is pretty straightforward, but if you need a refresher on how to make a seamless join, or switch colors at the end of a round, you can always refer back to my Amigurumi Flan video tutorial, which goes over all the basic skills you’ll need, like the magic circle, seamless join, changing colors, adding the face and closing up the amigurumi.
