If you don’t love Baby Yoda — The Child — you are dead inside. That’s right, I said it.
We have all been anxiously awaiting any and all merchandise dedicated to this little dude. If he isn’t in my stocking this year, Santa’s going to get a very angry letter from me.
Now, thanks to PhilaeArtes on Etsy, you don’t have to wait for official merchandise to enjoy your very own Baby Yoda. You can actually make your OWN Amigurmi Baby Yoda, and he is so freaking adorable!
What the heck does Amigurumi mean, anyway? Amigurumi is the Japanese word that describes a small crocheted or knitted toy. It can be in the shape of miniature food, a cute animal, a person, some kind of scenery, or so many other things. In this case — BABY YODA!
