Little Doughnut Pillow Plush – Free Crochet Pattern

I am so excited to share the next pattern for the 2019 CAL Central Softie Crochet Along! Lately my daughter has been obsessed with doughnuts. I recently bought her some doughnut stationary and she’s been hooked on everything doughnut-related. I thought it would be cute to “feed” her doughnut obsession with this adorable Little Doughnut Pillow Plush! I used Fairfield Poly-fil Premium Polyester Fiber Fill which was generously provided by Fairfield World. I really hope you enjoy the pattern! Happy crocheting!
