Happy March!

This month’s Mini tier pattern is for Peas in a Pod from Toy Story.

I was really looking forward to making this pattern because I have not yet crocheted an amigurumi that requires a zip – not to mention that the peas are just way too cute!

The most frustrating thing about this pattern was the difficulty to find the right zip. After digging through my zip stash and finding one that was the perfect colour, I quickly realised that it was not a chunky one and was also an invisible zip. Those of you that know me will be aware that I can be a bit of a stickler when it comes to certain details. So, I took to google to source a green chunky zip which was not easy. I ended up buying the zip that was the closest to what I needed, but when it arrived it was florescent green/yellow.

As you can see, I just went ahead and used the fluorescent zip anyway and fortunately, the end result was okay and somehow ties into the overall project. As this project is so simple there is not much more to discuss about it so I will jump right in.

Peas in a Pod measures approximately 6.25 inches / 16 cm long and 2.25 inches / 6 cm tall (with each pea measures approximately 1.5 inches / 4 cm wide).

Pop the peas into the pea pod and zip it up. You are now complete!

How did you find the pattern? Did your peas turn out as cute as you wanted? This turned out to be a sort of interactive amigurumi because you can unzip to reveal the peas or take the peas out completely.

As per request from a Patreon subscriber, next month’s mini tier pattern is Janie Doll from the first Toy Story movie. In the meantime you can check out my other Toy Story patterns HERE.

Until the next post, happy crocheting!
