Fear Amigurumi Doll Crochet Pattern

Published On: March 28, 2022 | Updated on: 2022-05-02T05:12:56Z

I have finally finished designing and making the Fear and completed all the emotions to my Pixar's Inside Out collection.

When I first crocheted Sadness from Pixar's Inside Out, I didn't really have the intention of making the rest of them. But then my daughter asked for Joy as well, so I set out to crochet an amigurumi Joy. 

I left it for a while, just the two of them (Joy and Sadness), until one day, I started getting emails and messages through Instagram from teachers and parents asking me if I would create the rest of them. They said that they became such good tools for helping teach kids about emotions and regulating their emotions.

In all honesty, I was a bit intimidated by the task to create an entire set. I wasn't sure if I could do it, but then I went on to release a crochet pattern for Anger, and then Disgust soon after that.

However, Fear had always stumped me. He didn't really look like the rest of them. How can I make him look like he belonged to the set?

Well, it wasn't easy, but I think I did it.

If you've seen my other amigurumis, I don't really give them eye whites (or mouths). So when I started designing Fear's amigurumi doll, I tried to think of a way where I didn't have to give him eye whites. 

How can I give a character no eye whites when half of his face are his eyeballs?

It clearly did not work, and instead, it either made him look like he had a butt for his eyes or he looked like a purple genie. The initial designs were so embarrassing, I don't even want to show you! 

After many tests and trials, I finally got something that I'm happy with and proud to tell you that my set of Pixar's Inside Out emotions is finally complete!

I'm sorry it took so long, but I hope you like him as much as I do.
