Mini Crochet Birds

Mini Crochet Birds

"These birds are so simple to make using a basic amigurumi ball shape and felt add-ons. This would be a great gift to make someone smile. Making small crochet toys are also a great idea when you have extra yarn and want something small and cute!"

I recently saw a post that of pom-pom gnomes and when I saw this picture I that that the same concept was used. Then I clicked into the pattern and discovered that the texture of these little mini crochet birds made it appear like the texture on the pom-poms.

I will be the first to admit, I love to find patterns that work up easily and have very few rounds to obtain a finished project. This one encourages you to crochet these and donate them to nonprofit organizations. This would be a great project to complete in a group and donate.

I am not understanding this pattern. I cannot "Chain" into the majic circle. And I don't know how to chain in rows.

Hi there! You know, I wonder if the pattern works by replacing all the ch with sc. I'm looking at it too and I'm not sure how to do the chain parts either! Hopefully someone else can chime in, but I'd say give the single crochets a try and see if that works. Good luck!

OMGOMGOMGOMG These are so cute! I lowkey want to make some for my birbs... and see how they react.

What a great last minute gift idea for teachers and neighbors. Crochet a pair of these loveable mini birds along with the printable. Your gift recipient can either perch them on a branch or two of your Christmas tree, set them on a windowsill, or pair them up on your fireplace mantel. You will need a hot glue gun to attach the felt shapes. I need to buy a glue gun right away! What a great use for my scrap yarn -)

These are adorable! I really love this site as it gives me more ideas! These mini crochet birds can be given as giveaways during christening and birthdays. It looks easy to make so I can make more for maybe a party or as a gift.

If I was to make this adorable little bird, I would either embroider the eyes or make tiny little crochet balls. If this is for a child, the eyes need to be fastened very safely and securely.

So cute! What are the eyes made of?

Hi there - It looks like the eyes are made from black beads, but you can certainly contact the blogger through her site to double check. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

I think beads, but you can use small buttons as substitute.
