After making so many Robins, I had to try something else with the same pattern. One unused ball of cotton inspired me to this little fellow on the side of my post. The yarn I am using is called softfun and it is nice and soft and thicker than my normal yarn, but it is also extensible. This is not a nice property for amigurumis. So I think the bird had a very convex body, But maybe some little girl will like it.
Well that is a lot of robins om my table. It is a charity project, they will be used for give-a-way by a large donation. The money goes to a nature walk in holland. I hope the donations will be very large. Now it is done I can work on other projects and U.F.O.s.
Well, I am still crocheting and have lot of ideas. For instance this hat, I want to dress it up with some flowers and leaves, and of course one of the small robins. I want to use it for an event in september. Meanwhile the Cal is not going well. The cactus is not going to be ready this weekend. Something tells me it is because I am making all kind of other things, like robins for the upcoming event.
He looks a bit sad, my super robin. I have adjusted the pattern a little bit more , zo now the wings are crocheted with single crochet instead of treble crochet. Now the stuffing isn’t protruding anymore. I have skipped some rounds and added some stitches here and there. And suddenly he look more like a robin than before.
I am making robins, these days. I had ordered some new yarn, very soft cotton and much thicker than the yarn I normally use. Because I wanted to make some big robins. But it turned out wrong, the robin became a bit distorted. So I had to adjust the pattern a little bit. Now the pattern is alright and the last robin I made a looks more like a robin than ever. I haven’t made pictures yet, the robins are not totally ready. They miss the beak and eyes and toes. So you have to wait al little longer. I am also making a new zergy, he is also not complete. And al my other projects are waiting to be finished. I keep you informed.
All my robins have flew out to other families. I hope they will enjoy their new homes. There departure was due to a sale in my hometown. They will support a club of voluntary workers. They will use the money to buy and paint some wooden robins, that will lead the way in children’s path in a small forest in our town. I am glad the robins will be enjoyed.
It is a very small bird, I am making. Just about 2 cm height. It is a simple pattern with woolen balls, felt and beads. I have already six birdies, they will fly to a market in the end of may and are a give away.
Making the little ones is a little bit of a challenge, for my sight isn’t that good anymore and needle and thread are very thin. So I make one or two together. I hope there is much interest for the little fellows.
