Amigurumi Pigeon

I made a key chain of this little bird. Hard to get a pointed beak but think it turned out okay. What do you think?

The pattern said that you should have a gray-colored felt fabric around the eyes but it fell off so I used white yarn instead, the yarn ends became like eyelashes. Cute!

Amigurumi

Amigurumi (Japanese: 編みぐるみ, lit. “crocheted or knitted stuffed toy”) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures.

It is a djungel of patterns out there but in the beginning I tried to find free patterns at Pinterest.

My very first amigurumi was “Fred the Frog” from smartapplecreations.blogspot.com
The pattern is amazing, showed step by step how to do it and it was very easy to follow but in hindsight I´ve learned that smaller crochet hook is not always good when you´re learning, the project get to small and it gets hard to get around everywhere but I made it!! Yay!

I also used safety eyes for the first time. I bought these on Virknalarochtillbehor. Crocket hook size 2.50 and cotton yarn 8/4
