Isn’t she lovely? Meet Bettie Badger…


All dressed up and ready to go, Illaria Caliri’s adorable amigurumi character Bettie Badger makes her debut in issue 75 of Simply Crochet. She’ll make the perfect gift for bridesmaids (or even the bride!) at autumnal weddings or peep out of your shoulder bag on a trip to Anthropolgie (she’ll fit right in). But be careful, little ones will really, really want one, so you might end up making Bettie, Belle, Bonnie, Brooke and Bea…
