That Chirping Sound Is Coming From My Yarn Basket.

If I didn't have other obligations, I'd go on a bird-making spree!  These amigurumi birds are so simple to make and so darned cute...everyone should have at least one.  Perhaps after the holidays I'll make that my mission.  To each man, woman and child:  a bird!  That'd be an interesting New Year's resolution.



I used a tutorial from a great blog called Bitter Sweet to make little blue bird and little pink bird.  I did just two things differently than the tutorial suggested.  One, I used a G hook because I didn't own an F hook at the time.  Two, I sewed on a small half-circle of felt for a tummy. 


I gave these to a friend of ours for her fourth birthday - but not before they had a chance to get into some mischief.  Apparently, crocheted birds have a very low tolerance for alcohol.  Something to keep in mind if you plan on making any of these.
