Vampire Mini Amigurumi

Crochet Vampire Doll Halloween Vamp Mini Amigurumi

I absolutely love Halloween. We don’t do much to celebrate here at home since it’s just the two of us right now, but it is easily one of my top three favorite holidays. Can you guess the other two?

I’ve been feeling the Halloween spirit for now, and I just knew that I needed to make some spooky amis this year. So, not only did I make the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus, but I have also made this adorable little vampire! Isn’t he cute? Just look at those little teeth! And that bow tie! *dies*

Finishing Steps

Use a yarn needle and the tail ends of the yarn to carefully sew the arms onto the body between rounds 11 and 12. If desired, you can stitch the openings at the tops of the arms flat before sewing the arms to the body.

Carefully sew the hair piece to the doll’s head, making sure the “point” is at the front and center. It may help to turn the hair piece inside out, place it against the doll’s head, and then turn the piece right-side out again, thus forcing it onto the doll’s head.

Use a strand of DARK PURPLE yarn and a needle to embroider on the bow tie. Start by making one triangle, then make the other triangle, and then run a stitch or two over the center where the two triangle shapes meet. See photos for detail if needed.

Use a strand of BLACK thread and a needle to embroider “buttons” onto the doll’s shirt.

Now comes the hard part. Very carefully, take a strand of BLACK thread and embroider on a straight line for the mouth. Then, embroider small triangles for the teeth with the point facing down. Then take a strand of WHITE thread and carefully fill in the teeth (or leave as-is, if you prefer).

Place the robes on the doll, pull the arms through the sleeve holes. Then carefully sew the robes firmly onto the doll.

Weave in all ends.
