Birdies complete! A nice way to spend an icy Saturday afternoon…
I used Nicki Trench’s pattern for the circles (who needs cushions anyway ;-p) Using DK and a size 4mm hook for one circle, then a 3.5mm for the other as I thought it could be tighter.
Beaks, legs and wings were inspired by Lucy of the Attic 24 blog. See the link at side of my blog if you’d like to see some really amazing crochet and projects she’s done over several years.
One of the birds is going to fly over to someone who shall remain nameless for now, in case she sees this little blogette.
As a beginner I really do enjoy little projects that are fast, and these were perfect. I really did enjoy putting the finishing touches on and sewing them up. In fact I have a feeling that I need to buy some felt and retrieve an old supply of embroidery threads I’ve had for years; to make something pretty and practise my very rusty sewing.
Anyway, enough waffle – here they are – here’s the reveal….!
