Birdie Decoration

Birdie Decoration
This is my pattern/tutorial for a hanging Birdie Decoration. A completely useless object of course, but very cute all the same. It's an easy project to make, great for using up odds and ends of yarn and can be used in all sorts of ways to bring a little good cheer. This little birdie is made in four pieces :: a round flat circle for the body, a small triangle for the beak and 2 leafy shapes for the wings. There is also a hanging chain to make which you can decorate with flowers if you like, and the option of adding some dangly legs too. First a little summary of the basic crochet stitches :: sl st :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) dc2tog (a 2-stitch decrease) :: insert hook, yarn over, pull loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook).

Koala Bear Amigurumi I found a Koala Amigurumi Pattern in the Woman’s Day website and I have some off-white and gray organic cotton yarns on hand, so I made a pair of these small little stuffed koalas for my kids in reverse color. Some ideas to make it differently: 1. This adorable little koala is about 3-5″ tall only (depend on your yarn and the matching hook size), install a key ring on it’s head and turn it into a key chain, hang it to the bag’s zipper. 2. If we sew the limbs closer to the center of the body and insert 4 small strong magnets to the tip of each limb, you can make it “huggy” and hug on a tree branch or at the edge of your curtain or your pencil, ruler etc… 3. And, and…. instead of poly-fills, stuff beads into the body to weight it down and with the magnets of it limbs, it can be a cute memo holder on your desk too

How to Crochet A Curlicue Crocheting culicues are one of the most simple and fun things I've made in a while...oh and they are addicting too!For this I'm using an H hook and some worsted weight yarn I had laying around (here's a hat pattern for you I made a while back with this yarn) To begin, make a chain as long as you would like your curlicue to be plus 3 chains (the one shown here is 20+3),

how to crochet a daisy chain necklace My mum described this thing she had seen on someone else, part necklace, part scarf, like a bunch of flowers for your neck and I was really taken with this idea of floral jewels. So after a bit of experimentation I came up with this design. It is simple to make with basic crochet stitches, and could have endless variations both in terms of the yarns and flower styles used to make it but also in the way it is worn.
