Koala Amigurumi Pattern

I found a Koala Amigurumi Pattern in the Woman’s Day website and I have some off-white and gray organic cotton yarns on hand, so I made a pair of these small little stuffed koalas for my kids in reverse color.

[Update: Sorry that the Woman’s Day has removed the pattern link, please get the pattern here.]

Some ideas to make it differently:
1. This adorable little koala is about 3-5″ tall only (depend on your yarn and the matching hook size), install a key ring on its head and turn it into a key chain, hang it to the bag’s zipper.
2. If we sew the limbs closer to the center of the body and insert 4 small strong magnets to the tip of each limb, you can make it “huggy” and hug on a tree branch or at the edge of your curtain or your pencil, ruler, etc…
3. And, and…. instead of poly-fills, stuff beads into the body to weight it down and with the magnets of its limbs, it can be a cute memo holder on your desk too 🙂
4. Use a chunkier yarn and bigger hook, crochet a giant version to become a soft toy.

Koala Amigurumi

Koala DIY 1Follow the crochet pattern to crochet all the parts of the koala, which consist of:
1 head (stuff firmly and complete)
1 body
1 nose
2 ears
4 limbs
Remember to leave a long yarn end (about 6-8″) for every part so that you will have enough yarn to sew.
You need 2 black beads (I used about 5.5mm or 7/32″ to match the size of the head I crocheted).
Tapestry needle and scissors.

Koala DIY 2Find the appropriate positions for the ears, approx at the center of the vertical cross-section of the head, middle of the height.

Koala DIY 3Sew to attach the nose in the center between the 2 ears.
Sew eyes 2 stitches away from the nose.

Koala DIY 4Stuff the body firmly and sew it to the bottom of the head.
