Finished Project: Fat Birdie!

Birdie FaceBiedie Side

I finished my fat little birdie using this pattern. This was my first crochet project ever! I improvised on the wings because I didn’t like the original ones. She (my boyfriend insisted it was a girl) was actually pretty quick to crochet, and I only messed up a few times. I’m loving crochet; I never really got into knitting. Knitting hurt my elbows for some reason, and it felt sloooow.

This is the wing pattern that I used:
ch 10
treble in 3rd ch from hook, treble, dc, dc, hdc, hdc, sc, in last stitch before turning(sc, sl st, sc)
sc, hdc, hdc, dc, dc, treble, 5 treble in end st. Join with sl st in top of 1st treble.
finish off.

[…] Edit: The bird pattern is from here (alternative wing pattern), and the bunny is from this booklet, although it is so simple I didn’t actually use it. I don’t recommend the booklet though, it is not worth the price; poor quality and the patterns aren’t special. […]

I’m seriously loving you darling beings…even the ones that you say you don’t like. *g* I see potential….major potential…in those designs. It’s been years since I’ve made any “toys”, but have fallen in absolute love with the amigurumi style. I’m……hooked. *lol*

Now off to peruse your patterns, and pick some with my youngest daughter.

Best wishes!!
