With this tutorial you’ll learn how to make your own amigurumi roly-poly toy. The one I designed looks like a circus strongman, but I encourage you to let your imagination fly and create many different characters. Let’s fill the world with dancing handmade toys!

It is ideal for children, pets and even as a toy for yourself! I can’t stop making it wobble as I type!
