The DooDoos – Free Amigurumi Pattern

Firstly let me start by apologising at how realistic the erm, doodoos look like ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought I’d add some stink lines and flies for a cute cartoonish effect and it somehow makes them just a little bit better. My daughter thinks they’re one of the cutest amis I’ve made. She also came up with the names and they’re kind of clever if you think about it ๐Ÿ˜

I’ve wanted to make these for a while now but held off on it simply because I thought it was kind of weird. But now that they’re here, they do look cute in a funny, awkward way. I must admit I was giggling so much when I was making them. I do believe social distancing has made me a little cuckoo and these days, we really need a good laugh! I included TP because, well TP needs be around for the doodoos ๐Ÿ˜ TP is my favourite!

Pattern below if you’d like to make these cute DooDoos.

Voila! The DooDoos are complete! I know this is a rather peculiar project but it could make for a funny gift for someone with a really great sense of humour or “toilet humour” and don’t really mind obscure objects. It could also be handy for parents who are potty training their little ones. You just need to make up a funny song to go with it. My daughter and I made up one:

“Ploppy and Splash are the best of friends
They’ll be together until the end
Ploppy ploppy ploppy ploppy
Splash splash splash
Don’t forget the TP
To wipe wipe wipe”

Or something like that ๐Ÿ˜

Have an awesome day, stay safe and don’t forget to wash your hands! Happy crocheting!
