Bibi Bird

Free crochet bird pattern

Hello everyone!

I designed Bibi Bird for a good friend of mine. He asked me to imitate his sweet little budgerigar bird by sending some photos. I really much enjoyed designing and making this amigurumi. It went well among all my amigurumi patterns! I think this is a great handmade toy for a bird-lover friend, or just to decorate the house with some birdy tropical touch! I guarantee that his will be one of a kind!

Here is the amigurumi pattern ↓
