Summer Flower Fairy Doll (Free Amigurumi Crochet Pattern)

by - June 02, 2020


Dear fellow crocheters,

I'm excited to share with you my sweet, little fairy doll design!  Meet the Summer Flower Fairy, an adorable pixie that is quick and easy to crochet.



This sweet fae wears her hair up in a bun, has a cute dress with lace frills, and a set of pretty wings.  She makes a lovely pocket-sized gift for little girls or children who adore mythical, fantasy, and fairytale creatures with a touch of magic!  Adults with a penchant for faeries and folklore will also love this whimsical design.


The Summer Flower Fairy is intrinsically joyful.  Her favorite season is - of course - summer!  She enjoys dancing during the warm weather and spending the long, daytime hours fluttering among the colorful flower fields while playing with her butterfly friends.  

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!

    1. Hi! If you see the highlighted section in the last paragraph of this post, it reads that the pattern will be posted on 8/4. I hope this helps! Almost all my patterns are released for free within days of publishing it on my blog, but this one has a longer wait time due to some prior third-party agreements I had made. Thank you for your patience!

    1. No worries at all! I do want to apologize for the wait as I normally don't release patterns after such an extended time. However, I hope that you'll enjoy making this summer fairy once it's out!!
