Angel Pixie Doll (Free Amigurumi Crochet Pattern)

by - June 04, 2020


Dear fellow crocheters,

I'm excited to share with you this sweet Angel Pixie! 



The Angel Pixie is an adorable, little doll that is quick and easy to crochet. This sweet and heavenly girl wears a white dress and has two feathery wings.  She makes a perfect guardian angel toy or play companion for kids. 


This darling, little fairy can also be a wonderful Christmas holiday gift or for someone you recognize as an angel in your life!  She will surely bring smiles to your recipient's face.  Look how cutely she sits atop the palm of a hand!


Other than making her as a doll, she can also be a lovely decor to place around the house, or even as a Christmas tree ornament if you'd like to attach a looped string from her back for hanging. 

This doll is part of Sweet Softies' Pocket Pixie Series.  Below are some other members of the group.  Click here to see them all and get links to their free patterns!
