  1. Here is a yellow birdy hat I crocheted using the Chirp Chirp Tweet Bird Hat Pattern. It works up quickly and was fun to make. I used black yarn for the eyes as this was for a baby.

    Amigurumi craze!

    I've been knitting for more than half a decade now... I've been crocheting for only 2 months. Amigurumi was what finally compelled me to learn to crochet. My grandmother gave me her sets of crochet hooks a long time ago and tried to teach me but I never really got the hang of it, mostly cause I still preferred the feel of knitting needles in my hands and couldn't get used to using a single hook. Amigurumi and the promise of super cute creations changed all of that. I started off with a few cupcakes (youtube tutorial found here) and played around with the toppings a bit: Surprisingly, crocheting came naturally to me this second time around... maybe because I have more years of knitting under my belt or maybe because I was more motivated to learn this time. Next, I tackled a pattern for mini birds (youtube tutorial found here): At this point, I decided I needed more yarn colors cause I'd exhausted my current meager collection, so I stopped by Michael's. To my surprise and joy, they had a sale on one of my favorite cheap acrylic yarns: Caron Simply Soft. It's cheap, it's soft, it's sturdy -- nothing exceptional but nothing to complain about. At $2.50 or so a skein, I loaded up the cart with about a dozen. The entire rainbow! And with my glorious new palette, I made another bird to go with the blue/brown one: After making the cupcakes and the birds, I was starting to feel more and more confident in my skills so I went on to tackle a more complicated pattern (though it turned out to be just time-consuming -- after making a couple amigurumi, you start to see the overall pattern of increases and decreases and nothing is really all that difficult to crochet). This bunny pattern took longer cause it simply had more parts: The only things that were slightly different from the things I'd made before were the ears (due to the color change) and the legs (fascinating to realize how the pattern maker used back loops to create a crease along the edge of the paws). The pattern for this bunny can be found here. Even though it's in Spanish, you can google translate the page and the translation, though not perfect, can be easily parsed if you have a basic understanding of crochet terms and amigurumi-craft. Decided in the end to swap out the knitted bow for a turquoise ribbon: I got a pack of craft eyes for these larger amigurumi projects but the eyes turned out to be crazy owl eyes... so, I decided to make an owl, heh (pattern found here). And since it's winter... gotta bundle up! Well, that's the end of my current list of amigurumis. I still need to get black craft eyes for the bunny and future projects. But yep, I'll post more next time! Thanks for reading/viewing! - Di

    my Birdies <3

    Winter was long this year and I was craving for spring when I made these, I just love them!
  4. Puffins are such funny cute birds! Thought they'd look in crochet! http://www.etsy.com/listing/98311303/amigurumi-pattern-puffin-crochet-pattern
  5. My new pattern is up on my Etsy site http://www.etsy.com/listing/84969464/amigurumi-birds-owl-crochet-pattern You can also find it in my Ravelry shop. The birds are really quick to work up & can be done in many colors. I think they'd be cute in Halloween colors or Christmas as well. The pattern includes instructions for the Large Bird, Baby Bird, Large Owl & Baby Owl.
  6. AKUA BIRD MASK There’s a red cardinal who has become my friend. He let me see watch him and sang/spoke, so now I know what their song is.
