I use the heart eyes emoji all the time. I thought it would be fun to make a little heart eyes stuffy. This pattern is super easy and perfect as a beginner amigurumi. I am not an expert with amigurumi and was able to easily whip this one up.
I had so much fun making this and I ended up making two other ones! You can find my eye rolling emoji pattern HERE.
Worsted weight yarn in yellow, red and black (I can’t tell you what brand since I just used what I had on hand)

Turn, sl st, sl st, sc, hdc, 2dc, 2dc, hdc, sc, sl st, sl st
Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing
Sew the hearts and mouth onto one of the panels.
Put panels together, right side facing out, and sew both sides together using a slip stitch. I had the back facing me so the slip stitches would be on the back of the stuffy. When you’re about halfway around, start stuffing with fiberfill.
As you continue to sew around, continue to stuff, stuff, stuff!
Until it’s nice a firm and all sewn up!
