With this free amigurumi pattern you can make a little cute bat with funny flap ears.

To crochet the bat amigurumi you will need:

  • Black, grey or white yarn according to your taste (to get different textures of the parts you can use cotton and acrylic yarn)
  • Suitable crochet hook (1.5-2.5 mm recommended)
  • Embroidering floss
  • Sewing thread of appropriate colour (for sewing parts together, because the toys are tiny and sewing with yarn will be too visible)
  • Some felt for muzzle
  • Stuffing
  • Black beads, buttons or safety eyes (optional)
  • Sewing and embroidering needles
  • Pins (for fixation of parts before sewing)
  • Scissors
