i think i have an obsession with crochet birds.. like there was this one time where i had about 20 crochet birds flying around in my room.


but it's okay.. in the end, i gave them to my friends as graduation gifts!  Smiley

and i kept my favorites Grin the blue with gold wings is for my bf to hang on his car. he has a blue subaru with gold rims and he requested that bird for his car. i ended up making two to keep one for myself. heheh!



these two are my favorite from all of my favorites =D i made these last year and i waited a year to give it to my bf for our anniversary  Wink

---------------------------------------------------------

Hedwig for CheyElizabeth  Smiley I really had fun making him and I hope he resembles Hedwig even just a little bit.. heheh! he's 3 1/2 inches tall.

awwww thank you guys soo much!! it means a lot to me because i also didn't use a pattern on these guys  Grin  i just saw similar ones just like indeliblechange. it is very similar to bittersweet's basic bird!! except her birdies are better because they're bigger and even have a tail  Cheesy

about the pattern.. you guys dont know how much i would LOVE to just post it or send all of you guys the pdf file (cause craftster is for sharing!) and i love free patterns but im really trying to hopefully sell it on my etsy. going to college soon and yeah.. i need money =(

please, no hard feelings! lol! here are tutes online i recommend so you can have birdies flying around your house too!!

indeliblechange's birds were created after she saw the ones I made (she credits me as sharmelon, from livejournal):


I'm not sure if miss_joy was also using mine for reference?

For those of you interested in the pattern, it is actually available in the book Kooky Crochet: 30 Remarkably Wacky Projects by Linda Kopp.. it was just released this summer.
