Sunshine Amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern

Hello! Today I'm helping celebrate Fairfield World's 80th Birthday by sharing my new pattern that was made with my favorite fiber fill, Fairfield World's Poly-Fill! Sunshine Amigurumi is a quick and easy project that can be used for just about anything from baby mobiles to keychains! Scroll down for the free pattern!




When designing this pattern for Fairfield World’s birthday celebration, I wanted to design something easy, fun and since it’s the end of summer, I thought a sunshine would be perfect. Fall and winter are coming and it will be nice to share some sunshine when there is none outside.


“You Are My Sunshine” is still one of my favorite songs and I have a lot of memories to look back on with this song too. My mom would sing me that song when I was sad and when I grew up, I sang this sweet song to my son while rocking him to sleep when he was a baby.



I designed this cute little sunshine with Sugar N Cream yarn from Mary Maxim, my size G (4.00) mm Odyssey hook from Furls and polyfill from Fairfield World.
