I made this Bluebird from Stacey Trock’s Craftsy class. It was for a friends 1yr old daughter for her first birthday. I crocheted the eyes instead of using the plastic ones, to ensure they are safe, and used cotton yarn so that it would be easy to wash.
The pattern is so quick and easy to follow, and I love how Stacey crochets into the back loop only to give the ‘line’ effect. I think it makes the FO look very tidy and neat, and it means that sewing on wings and beak is really easy.
I’m delighted with how it turned out.
