Boggle the Gumdrop Monster


Meet Binky's newest friend, Boggle the Gumdrop (not destroyer!) Monster! 

Once again, I copied this pattern straight from my tumblr account. There seems to be more crafters on blogger so maybe I will post my patterns here and more picture on tumblr. Or maybe I'll abandon my tumblr completely? I'm not sure yet. I wish I could figure out how to add more pages to my blog. I FINALLY figured out how to switch my email account on here. I'll be sure to get to your comments now!

Note: I use the magic ring to start my amigurumi (tutorial by June Gilbank here), but if you feel uncomfortable with this technique, you can chain 2 and start the round in the 2nd chain from your hook.

Materials Needed:
F hook
Worsted weight yarn in orange, white, and black
8mm safety eyes
White felt
Your choice of stuffing. I use polyester fiberfill 
Tapestry Needle
Fabric glue or white embroidery thread

sc: single crochet
inc: 2 single crochet in 1 stitch
dec: single crochet 2 stitches together
*...*: repeat anything in between
(#): # of stitches in each round
FO: Finish off.

Rnd 3: *sc, inc* (18)
Rnd 4: *2 sc, inc* (24)

Stuff. F/O. Leave tail to sew to body.

1. Embroider smile with black yarn onto the body. My smile is between rounds 11 and 12 and 5 stitches apart. The outer curves are 2 stitches apart and go diagonally up 1 round. (Basic smile tutorial made by me can be found here. Scroll down to see it.)

2. Use the base to trace a circle onto a piece of cardboard. Cut circle out. This will be used to keep Boggle's bottom flat.

3.- Using the tail of the base, begin sewing the base and body together. Be consistent! I recommend using a whip stitch to sew through either both loops or only the front loops of the base and body. 
  - When half way done sewing, start stuffing the body. Insert cardboard circle between stuffing and base. Continue sewing and stuffing until completely closed. Weave tail into body and F/O.

4. Sew eyes to body. The top of my eyes are sewn around rounds 5 and 6 of the body. Weave tail into body and F/O.

5. Sew arms to body. My arms are between rounds 11 and 12.Weave tail into body and F/O.

6. Cut a triangle out of the white felt and glue or sew onto the smile.

And there you have it! Your very own Boggle the Gumdrop Monster! I hope you enjoyed this pattern.

  1. Hey- just curious- do you mean "add pages" as in tabs (bar across the top and buttons?)

    1. Yes! Sorry so late, I'm not getting alert emails.
