Free Pattern – Teeny Tiny Dachshund Amigurumi


I love making amigurumi’s!  I can’t resist crocheted critters or other cute characters and neither can my daughter! And I certainly don’t mind making them for her as she loves her crocheted toys that Mummy made better than some of her shop bought ones. So when she started a make believe game the other day with some ‘teeny tiny’ puppies I decided to make her one.
