Glinda the Good Mini Amigurumi

Mini Crochet Wicked Wizard of Oz Dolls Glinda Amigurumi

“Happy is what happens when your dreams come true!”

-Glinda the Good-

I have been a fan of Wicked: The Musical and the novel Wicked by Gregory Macguire for such a long, long time. I love how many levels of morals and social issues the story has layered on top of each other. It’s a complicated story, and there’s nothing I love better!

Naturally, it was only a matter of time before I made myself a little Glinda and Elphaba! Aren’t they just adorable?

Follow the pattern directions below to make a mini Glinda the Good amigurumi of your very own! Missing Elphaba? You can find her pattern here.

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.

Sew the hair piece to the doll’s head.

Use the tail ends of the yarn and a yarn needle to sew the halter top strap piece to the doll’s dress. Start at the front of one arm, wrap behind the neck, and then attach to the dress by the front of the other arm. See photos for placement if necessary.

Sew the dress detail tier pieces onto the doll’s dress. Sew tier 3 on the bottom, tier 2 in the middle, and tier 3 near the top (near the doll’s waist). See photos.

If desired, you can sew a pink flower button into her hair.

Use a yarn needle and a strand of TAN yarn to embroider on eyebrows.

Use a yarn needle and a strand of BLACK thread to embroider on eyelashes.

Weave in all ends.
