Free Repressed Memory Emily (Mr. Frond’s Therapy Dolls from Bob’s Burgers) Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

If you’re a big Bob’s Burgers fan, then you’ll know who this is! Ever since I put out the Flu-ouise Pattern Collection, I’ve gotten a TON of requests for me to make the therapy dolls. And because the Bob’s Burgers community has been so supportive and nice (seriously, thank you!), I’ve decided to do it!

Gauge

5 Round Circle = 2” with a 3.5mm hook

Gauge isn’t super important for amigurumi, but I included it just in case you want to check your gauge. Being a little off should not affect the final product too much. You can learn more about how to measure gauge for amigurumi here!

Yarn I Used

I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran for this toy; however, you can use any cotton yarn as long as you correspond your hook to the weight of your yarn. For this pattern, I used roughly 35g of Ballet Pink (< 1 skein of yarn), 30g of Raspberry Pink ( a little less than half a skein of yarn), 40g of Duck Egg Blue (< 1 skein of yarn), and 25g of Sailor Blue (~half a skein).

Left Strap

Fasten off and do not weave the tails in, you will need them for sewing. The fatter side of each strap will be the front of the strap (the side where you made 3dc instead of the side with 7sc).



Assembling the Dress together

  • Locate the front of the skirt and mark two spots with stitch markers (or pieces of scrap yarn in a different colour), making sure that there is a 6-stitch gap between the markers.
  • With the chain side of the dress strap facing away from the 6-stitch gap, sew the front of the strap to the front of the skirt. Make sure to not sew into the 6-st gap.

Free Repressed Memory Emily (Mr. Frond's Therapy Dolls from Bob's Burgers) Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Step 12

  • Count 7 stitches from the chain side of the strap and mark the 8th stitch with a stitch marker, you will be leaving a 7-st gap for the arms to go through.
  • Sew the back of the strap to the back of the skirt, making sure that the strap isn’t twisted and that you are not sewing into the 7-st gap.

  • Repeat on the other side and weave in the tails.

Rounding out the front of the dress and adding a chest strap:

  • Pick up a single crochet on the first hdc from Row 2 of the Left Strap (see photo 1 below), 4sc down the strap.
  • Work one sc into the corner (photo 2), 6sc across the front, one sc into the corner (photo 3), and 5sc up the Right Strap (photo 4). Do not fasten off.

Free Repressed Memory Emily (Mr. Frond's Therapy Dolls from Bob's Burgers) Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Step 16

  • Chest Strap: Ch 12, sl st in 5th ch from hook, fasten off (photo 5 & 6).
  • Using the tail from where you picked up a stitch on the Left Strap, sew your button onto the strap.
  • Weave all the tails in. If you want to make sure the Chest Strap tail is nice and secure, you can dab a little bit of glue to ensure that it stays put.

Assembly

  • Pin the Body onto the Head and sew together.

Free Repressed Memory Emily (Mr. Frond's Therapy Dolls from Bob's Burgers) Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Step 18

  • Pin the Arms to the side of the body. Make sure to leave a 1-Row gap between the Head and the top of the Arms and keep a 10-stitch gap between the front of the two Arms. Sew in place.
  • Pin the Legs onto the bottom of the Body. I left a 2-round gap at the bottom. Sew in place.

  • Pin the first layer of the Hair onto the top of the Head. Sew it in place. I also made sure to sew the middle of each individual strand from the first layer to the Head so that the Hair will be a little bit more manageable. Make sure the hair strands are not twisted when you sew it down. (See photo below)
  • Make sure to also sew the bangs from the first layer to the Head.
  • I chose to not sew the second and third layers down, but you can if you want the hair to be perfectly positioned. Just make sure to not sew the ends down.

Free Repressed Memory Emily (Mr. Frond's Therapy Dolls from Bob's Burgers) Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Step 23

  • Pin out a line across the face and embroider the mouth in with black embroidery thread. I initially tried to embroider a curvier line, but ultimately decided to just follow the line between Rows 13 & 14. My RME’s mouth is roughly 18 sts wide.
