Squishy Stress Pet Crochet Pattern

Squishy Stress Pet Crochet Pattern

  Squishy Stress Pets are the perfect quick makes for fellow crochet business owners! If you need fast, no-sew projects for your markets, these guys will quickly fill your empty shelves.
  I was a vendor for a market themed "Gifting Wellness", so I quickly designed these fellas to be the perfect size for squishing like a stress ball, but so much cuter! Surprisingly, my design was loved by customers at my markets, and other crocheters have been reaching out for the pattern. So here we are! Enjoy making flocks of these little guys!
