Nesting Birds

Here they are!  Cute little birds for you to make! It was so much fun trying to make ’em as cute as the ones that visit our deck.  I’m not sure if I achieved it, but I do love the shape and colors.  I actually began the design by drawing them…coming up with a realistic bird shape that was simple to make.  Sketching it out first was the only way I could visualize how to go about making them.  After a try or two with my hook, it worked!  I hope you like.

The whole time I was creating them, I kept thinking of another favorite children’s book we have read to all three of our kids: The Best Nest by P.D. Eastman.  Our kids have LOVED this book and Maddie still loves to read it.  When our oldest daughter was little, my husband and I made up a tune that goes with the above song the birds sing in the book.  Click here to listen to Maddie, our youngest, singing it!

“I love my house, I love my nest,

In all the world my nest is best.”

So, once again, pairing a children’s book with a crocheted stuffed animal…love, love, LOVE that! They would make wonderful gifts for bird lovers too! And who doesn’t love birds????    (Pattern includes instructions for the bird AND the nest pictured below! To purchase the downloadable pdf pattern, click here!)

  1. I made Birdie already–an orange birdie–and he’s terrific. His nest is as well. Can’t wait to make a red one for our Christmas tree.
