Finishing:


  • Sew and stuff all wheels.
  • Sew the front hub become one circle. (This step is only for front hub)
  • Sew  spoke using the rest of yarn in the wheel, and  put the hub in the middle of the wheel. Use the picture bellow as a guide to sew the spoke. For back wheel, take only one hub to sew in the middle of wheel.
Here is a "step by step" picture to guide you in joining the bicycle vase parts.


  • Bend the fork part then sew the head tube on the fork.
  • Sew the handle bar on the head tube.
  • Sew the bicycle fender on the front wheel and between the fork.
  • Sew both side of the fork to the wheel.
  • Take one back hub and then sew it to bottom tube, do the same thing on another side of tube.
  •  Sew the hub that you've joined to bottom tube to the hub in the wheel. 
  • Put the milk carton into the vase/pot. And then put the base vase to cover the milk carton. Sew it.
  • Sew R34-38 of "top tube and vase tube" to the bottom of the vase/pot. Then sew R21-33 to the side of vase/pot.
  • Put the vase on the bottom tube, then sew it, so the vase won't fall. Sew also the top side of wheel to the vase to make a strong foundation.
  • Bend the top tube, then sew to R4-5 side of head tube.
  • Bend the handle bar.
  • Finish. Your amigurumi bicycle vase has done now.
  • If you want to make this vase to be a pencil or your crochet stuff holder, you can add some round of the pot to make it higher.
Now You can add some flower on the vase.
