Free pattern for baby squirrel here and acorn here · Video preview here 

***This pattern is a 2-in-1 that includes both the baby squirrel and acorn patterns.***

The Baby Squirrel in Acorn pattern includes instructions for a miniature, newborn squirrel and his acorn home. The Acorn is large enough for the little critter to hide within, making this a fun pretend play toy set for young children. This is a very small but quick amigurumi project. It makes a wonderful gender neutral (unisex) gift for boys and girls alike, and is great as decor for woodland themed nursery rooms.

Perfect for my Granddaughters

I haven't actually made it yet but since I love squirrels it was something I could not resist. I'm also a big fan of "tiny". Just perfect for me and my granddaughters.

Cute squirrel

Too soon to tell haven’t had a chance to make it . The craft show season is winding down then I’ll have time.
