May Flower Amigurumi

I love May! Partly because its my birthday month, partly because my middle son was born in May, partly because school gets out (woohoo summer!), and partly because its just so pretty!! So what would be better than making a “May Flower” to celebrate spring and great weather?

I created this guy just for fun. (I think I’ll give it to my oldest son’s teacher for teacher appreciation week.) But there’s lots of fun you can have with it! Make a bunch as a bouquet for Mother’s Day! Or teacher appreciation! Use it as decoration or to give to a special someone!

Notes:

 – I used yellow for the middle and purple for the petals. Of course you can use any color you’d like! Just know that the pattern is written using these colors so change your own accordingly. 🙂

– Each piece is worked in the round without joining. Stitch markers are highly recommended.

What You’ll Need:

– G hook

– WW yarn in three colors (middle, petals, stem/leaf)

– Small amount of yarn/embroidery thread to sew on mouth

Break yarn leaving tail for sewing.

Assembly: 

Sew petals to middle of flower, leaving about 1 st in between each. (I recommend pinning them first so you know they are even. Sometimes stuffing the petals can cause minor size differences that could affect how “even” it looks).

Using stem color, sew stem to back of middle of flower. Make sure its centered!

Sew leaf to stem.

Weave in all ends.

Enjoy!
