This crochet kawaii sunshine decoration can also be used as an adorable mini pillow and is super easy.

The Crochet Kawaii Sunshine Stuffing

Even with the chunky yarn, I had some slight holes so made something that the filling could be put into (this is optional).

For this project, I used the bulking up trick using only lightweight yarn (I did this with the Lilac Chunky Beanie). Great way to use up that old stash.

Start with a MAGIC RING. 6 DOUBLE CROCHET for the first round,

Then HALF TREBLE CROCHET to work the rest of a circle. Close each round with a SLIP STICH and start the next round in the next stitch.

Make 2 circles of the same size. I didn’t have enough yellow, so did the back of the sun with purple yarn.
