my first amigurumi

I've been crocheting for a few months now and I love it! Recently, a good friend of mine taught me how to make a bird-type amigurumi. She made an owl; I made a bluebird. I am absolutely in love with him. I think he's adorable.

I basically crocheted an egg shape, then did the first round of a granny square for the eyes, did some variations on the egg shape for the arms, and I have NO idea what I did for the feet, but they seem to work. Then I stuffed the guy, sewed it all together, and added some button eyes. I think I'm going to work on a bumble bee friend for him, then maybe a red birdy friend for him too. In the meantime, he can hang out on my shoulder and listen to some This American Life with me while I get busy on those tasks.

Good night!
