Getting Started
We will start by making the bottom of the trash bag. We first make a foundation chain and work completely around the chain to form a round.

Note about yarn…
I used size 1 cotton yarn to make a smaller, cleaner looking amigurumi. However, you can use regular size 4/Medium weight yarn with a 4mm hook! The pattern will work out exactly the same, only difference being the trash bag would come out bigger.

Let’s Get Started

We will start by making a foundation chain. We will work completely around the chain in a round to form an oval shape.

Note: Adding blush is a cute touch! Use either makeup or a very small amount of paint with a soft brush and go in small circles to make the blush.
