an angry bird


When I saw this pattern I showed Gavin; after all Angry Birds is one of his favourite games on his iPod. Of course he wanted one immediately. And I was only too happy to oblige. Look how adorably angry the little cardinal is!

It's the first amigurumi I've crocheted. Not a bad first effort, eh? The pattern is very well written with detailed descriptions and lots of photos - perfect for a beginner like me. I think I handled the crocheting okay, but I need more practice at sewing and assembly. These safety eyes are some I had on hand; they're much larger than what the pattern called for. The 9mm eyes shown in the pattern are beadier and more piercing, but Gavin says he doesn't mind these.

It won't be the last amigurumi I crochet, though. Gavin wants the goldfinch and pig as well!
