I’m so excited to be collaborating with a few of my amigurumi designer friends to bring you the cutest Tea Party Crochet A Long! Together with Cara from @carascreationsaus, Erinna from @littleaquagirl, Ilaria from @airali_gray, and Khuc from @lespetitemainsdekhuccay, we’ve created some of the cutest friends for you to crochet!

If you’re joining us for our #teapartycal be sure to check out this post on instagram with more info!

My contribution to our tea party are these two cutie birds, Melvin and Penny! We’ve made some strawberry jam biscuits using the strawberries from Khuc’s pattern last week! Melvin got caught eating some on the way but we can’t blame him, they’re delicious!
