Crochet Appa

September 28, 2020



Hello blog friends.  I had a request about two months ago from my daughter to crochet her a stuffed animal.  I'd never made a stuffed animal before and I knew this would be a new crochet challenge for me.  

Some of you might remember that I've made in the past a crocheted apple and crocheted mini pumpkins.  


I found the free crochet pattern to make Appa on Pinterest and the details are HERE.  

For those of you that are not familiar with Appa he is a flying bison from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

From the start of this crochet project, I had a small problem trying to read the pattern.  I was happy to have help from my crochet and knitting friends from Instagram @mayakuzman and @alhanaart.  

This project was pretty involved with a lot of small pieces to crochet and I worked a little bit on him each day.  It took me about a month to crochet him and I love the way he came out.
I'm happy I had a crochet project to work on for my daughter and she loves Appa!  I enjoyed crocheting, stuffing, and sewing Appa together.

Are you working on any fun crochet or knitting projects?

Crochet Appa Project!


Happy crafting everyone.

  9. Sometimes crocheting animals can be tricky as they have so many small parts sewn together. Your daughter must be delighted with her own Appa, it turned out so cute. :-)
    Happy October!
