You’ve been crocheting for a while, and now you’re thinking about making some profit off this hobby. Or maybe, you’ve gone to a craft fair before and loved it, and now you want to be part of it.
But what to sell? Figuring out what to display in your booth can be a challenge. It can’t be anything too time-consuming or detailed, since you need to mass-produce them for the display.
So what’s quick and easy to make, yet eye-catching and attractive enough to lure customers to your booth?
Not to worry, I’ve got you covered! In this post, I’ve compiled a series of cute and lovely amigurumi patterns that are beginner-friendly and will take less than an hour to make!
The great thing about crocheting amigurumi is that most patterns only calls for single crochets and some sewing.
This makes them not only very accessible to beginners, but quicker to work through than if you had to pay attention to making five different types of stitches!
Previously, I’ve shared a tip on how to resize amigurumi. When crocheting for craft fairs, you should definitely consider substituting thinner yarn with thicker yarn like velvet or chenille, as they will take roughly the same amount of time to crochet, but the resulting size will be a lot bigger!
Not only are bigger amigurumi more eye-catching, you can also price them higher. All of the patterns listed below will look cute at all sizes, so go and take a look!
1. Spring Bunnies
These lovely rabbits are just perfect for welcoming the Year of Rabbit!
The pattern provides detailed instructions and step-by-step pictures for some tricky parts.
I love that the creator also provides patterns for their accessories—the roses and carrot just add so much more personality to these cute buns!
You can also choose to customize the colors of your bunnies—gray, cream, or brown for realistic bunnies, pink or blue for fantastical ones!
2. Fluffle Teddy Bear
This sweet teddy bear will certainly draw the eyes of people at the craft fair! At first glance, most people won’t even realize this teddy bear has been crocheted!
Faux fur yarn can be a bit finicky to work with, but since it only requires single crochets, this is the right project for beginners to try it out!
And don’t worry! In the pattern tutorial, I’ve included many tips on how to work with faux yarn.

3. Chubby Cat Amigurumi
Calling all the cat lovers to your booth!
These mini cats are the perfect size to sell as a keychain or bag charm! Or you can choose to make a larger version by substituting the yarn!
If you choose to use a jumbo-sized yarn, you might consider using sport yarn to embroider the stripes instead of embroidery floss.
The stripes surely add character, but if you find yourself short on time, you may choose to forgo them!
4. Jumbo Bee
This bee or a variation of it has made its rounds on Instagram and TikTok! You’ve probably seen it, and so will your potential customers!
The final size measures at 13 in. x 10 in. (33 cm x 25 cm), truly a jumbo-sized bee!
I love how the pattern provides an option to create felt eyes instead of the usual safety eyes! It really adds character to the bee.
5. Amigurumi Pumpkin
Save this pattern for when fall comes around again! Which is soon, for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere!
These cute pumpkins will happily greet your customers!
If you crochet them using the recommended size and hook, you may choose to attach a chain and sell them as keychains!
Otherwise, you can upsize them and sell giant pumpkins instead.
6. Strawberry Bee
Here’s another bee for you! This pattern is by me and I’ve ensured that it’s easy to understand, even for beginners!
This strawberry bee would be absolutely delighted to join in your craft fair!
You can substitute the recommended colors with any colors you want! For instance, you can create a rainbow bee if you like!

Well, ready or not, here they are!
Those eight cute little tentacles might intimidate you, but don’t discount this pattern just yet! It’s a no-sew pattern and the tentacles are made using a combination of chains and slip stitches.
Additionally, the creator has also included a handy video tutorial!
8. Amigurumi Donuts
This squad of donuts is just irresistible! A pig donut, a frog donut, a unicorn donut—what more can spice up your stand?

Don’t tell her, but this fluffy cutie of a ghost isn’t cut out for scaring people, anyway!

10. Shirokuma the Polar Bear

Shirokuma only requires basic amigurumi techniques to complete, so it’ll be a quick project for anyone!
I think he’s the perfect mascot for these wintry days!
11. Jumbo Narwhal
This is a no-sew, beginner-friendly jumbo velvet pattern for a giant narwhal, which ticks all the boxes of what I mentioned to be ideal patterns to make for craft fairs!
My pattern supplements photos and diagrams in areas where written instructions might be unclear, but overall the pattern is super easy to follow!
And if you don’t feel up to attaching the horn, then you’ll have yourself a cuddly whale instead!

There’s just something about crocheted frogs like these that appeal to the masses.
Meet Tad the Chubby Frog! I’m sure you’ve encountered him or his siblings at some point—amigurumi frogs are such a classic! He’s simply a quintessential must-have in your booth!
This is a straightforward pattern which asks for velvet yarn.
13. Chonky Mushroom
These mushrooms are sure to be a hit with fans of cottagecore and cuteness! That blush just adds to their adorableness!
This pattern calls for a chunky yarn, so you won’t need to resize if you were planning to make a bigger mushroom.
You can also choose to alter the yarn color of the mushroom caps for more variety and fun!
14. Reversible Octopus
Reversible octopuses went viral last year, but they’re still a big deal even now! Kids especially will love these cute happy-angry octopuses!
This pattern might take longer to make than the other patterns in this post, since you’ll have to crochet both sides, but wouldn’t you agree that the end results are worth it?
The tutorial includes both written instructions and a video to help you through if you get stuck!
15. Amigurumi Fruit Slice Keychain
These cute keychains are super quick and easy to make! All you need to do is crochet a circle in the round, then fold it in half and sew the edges together, attach a keychain, and you’re done!
They are so small and compact—the ideal item to crochet using the scraps of yarn I know you have lying around! Which is a great thing since you won’t need to buy more yarn—just profit off the yarn you already have!
