CROCHET FIRE TRUCK PLUSH TOY PATTERN

The crotchet fire truck plush banner

This fire truck was a long and imagined project. I knew I wanted to create a fire truck for a couple of reasons. My kids are very much in love with fire trucks and pretending to be firefighters. Typical 3 & 1-year-old pastime of course. But if you throw in your own dad as a firefighter you are basically surrounded with beautiful emergency vehicles that we can go see quite frequently if we wanted to.

Thank you to my husband for helping me make sure I put the wheels in the correct place because let me tell ya, I sewed and ripped off those baby’s many times until I got it right! Who knew the wheels were going to be where I spent most of my time.

But I am glad to report that I am happy with the results and my kids identify it as a fire truck and admired the details up to the sirens and that makes me feel happy and all the feedback I need!

One other thing I love about this is the many colors it is capable of being in! pink, green, yellow, or even purple! The window can be black, gray, or white! The world is your oyster and wouldn’t it be so fun if your child or recipient of this truck gets to choose the colors?! How fun imagination kids have, it would be an incredible truck!

So whether you make this for your child, grandchild, or neighbors son or daughter I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did with love for my kids.

Happy Crocheting!
