An adorable spin on the classic avocado toast!

I recently became addicted to avocado toast (about five years late, I know) and I’ve been wanting to make some more food themed animal amigurumi, so this design was a logical next step!

I had the idea of making a fried egg as a little “blanket” for my little teddy bear, and it all came together really quickly after that.

I’ve never made a fried egg before, but using a combination of a sphere shape for the yolk plus a few rounds of half double crochets made it super easy! I even stuff the yolk slightly at the end so it has its characteristic shape.

The toast pattern itself is drawn from my Bread & Butter pattern, which I love because it’s double thick to make it extra sturdy. It’s worked back and forth with some shaping for the top, and then you’ll crochet a border to work the two sides together without any sewing (huge win!).

If this is your first time working a border, don’t worry — I’ve got a great video tutorial to help you out.

Tips for beginners making this pattern!

If you’re a beginner and want to make this pattern, it’s a great opportunity to try out some new skills! This pattern includes several advanced techniques like working around a border, embroidering a basic mouth, as well as sewing amigurumi pieces together.

Sewing can be the most challenging part of making amigurumi for most people, so if you’re just getting started I recommend reading my blog post below that breaks down my system to sewing amigurumi parts together.

If you’re new to embroidering basic features onto your amigurumi, you can check out my guide here on embroidering easy faces. I go over a basic nose, mouth, and blush features that you can mix and match to your amigurumi!

Technical Notes

  1. When filling with polyester stuffing, pull apart each large chunk into many smaller chunks. This ensures an even distribution of firmness within the amigurumi.
  1. To avoid large holes in the crochet fabric, increase tension until the holes cannot be seen, or choose a crochet hook a size down.
  2. Use sewing pins to secure parts of the amigurumi before you sew them.

Fig. 5: Finished arms.


  • You should now have a completed bread piece, a fried egg piece, a bear body, and two bear arms.
  • Place the finished egg on the toast towards the bottom. Decide how you would like to orient the egg, and then use the tail to seam it to the top of the toast with a running stitch around the outer edge of the egg. Lightly stuff the yolk of the egg with scrap yarn or fiberfill as you go.
  • When you get to the place where the bear should be, insert the bear body slightly underneath the egg, and sew through the bear body and through the top layer of toast as you continue to sew down the egg. Finish sewing the egg until it is completely secure, then weave in the end.
  • Sew on the two arms of the bear last, orienting them so that they overlap slightly with the top of the egg white, as if it were a “blanket.” They should be at around round 10 (counting from the top) of the body, 3 rounds below the eyes.
