Bao Amigurumi Pattern - Free

I first created this Bao amigurumi because a friend of mine requested a special gift for a friend. Upon finishing this chibi bao, I knew it would need a bamboo steamer basket to rest in. I didn’t have any at home, but luckily there was a Daiso nearby where I was able to pick several up for pretty cheap.

Originally I wanted to create the amigurumi as a stand alone that you could freely play with. It would be like a dim sum plate where you can take Bao in and out of the basket as you please, along with the lettuce. But upon looking at the construction of the bamboo basket, I realized that it could also function as a round shadow box frame and would work great as a home decor art piece. You could hang it or stand it up. All I had to do was attach the lettuce and bao to the basket itself so that the two items would not fall out of the basket. And there you have it, instant delicious decor to delight one’s palate!
