I made this airplane for my 3yo. He's disappointed because the propeller doesn't actually turn  Undecided And he wanted red, but I didn't have any red yarn. The pattern is from Ana Paula Rimoli's "Amigurumi Two!" I'm sure it isn't quite right because he kept running off with it whenever I set it down and unraveling a bunch of stitches, lol

I totally staged that picture, BTW. Snuck in his room while he was napping and stuck it under his arm.





For some reason, I'm drawn to making birds. (here is the other one I posted today) I think this is the best bird pattern I've run across, although I made a few changes. It's the bluebird pattern from "Super-Super Cute Crochet" by Brigitte Read. Obviously, I made mine a robin because I miss the robins back home in IL. There aren't any here in CO! Plenty of sparrows, pigeons, and love doves, but no robins. I changed the head angle because I liked her sitting up more. The original would had the whole belly facing down with the head completely on the brown, and when I was playing around with arranging all the pieces, I just liked this better. I also reduced the number of stitches in the head because it would've been way ginormous. Interestingly, the way I made it looks like the picture in the book. The pattern also didn't show you how to make that little dip in the tail, it just had treble crochet all the way across, but the picture shows the dip. So I did hdc for the middle 2 stitches and it turned out alright.
OK, 'nuff gabbing. Pictures.



3yo takes her for a ride in the beach patrol truck.

Love the posable wings!
