Princess Pattern: Cinderella Amigurumi

Cinderella Amigurumi

Hello, crafters!

I am so excited to post my pattern for Cinderella and her little friends. (I think the little mouse is just too cute!) Cinderella has one of the poofiest dresses of all of the Disney Princesses, so I ammended the pattern I had originally created to do justice to her extra poofy dress.

Her mouse and bird friends are just as adorable, though I think the mouse is the true winner here! I wasn’t too sure how he would turn out, but once I added the little pink nose, I was sold! I don’t think I’ve ever made anything quite as adorable. I hope you love all of them as much as I do!

Use a tapestry needle to sew the main hair piece to the doll’s head so that the small ridge of hdc sts is along the front of the face like bangs. Stitch behind the “bangs” and around the head.

Fold the center of the bangs down towards the face, creating two small “bumps”. Make small, careful stitch with your yarn in the center, but not too close to the front of the hair piece. You don’t want the stitch to be visible! When you’re done, weave in your ends.

Use a tapestry needle to sew the bun piece to the head, pressing on the piece as you go to make it more rectangular in shape. See pictures for placement & shaping if needed. Add a tiny bit of fluff to the inside of the bun.

Before weaving in ends, take the remaining piece of the yarn that was used to sew on the bun and wrap it around the bun a couple of times. Fasten off & weave in the rest of the yarn tail.
