I just finished crocheting this little amigurumi bluebird. Insted of stuffing it with the traditional polyester fiberfill, I put a blue nylon scrubbie inside so that the bird can get wet without getting ruined. I used 100% mercericed cotton and am planning on making more in different colors. I used this pattern, only as you can see, I altered it a bit. I usually change patterns around to suit my individual fancy ;-)
I thought it would look adorable sitting there in the kitchen window while not in use. He could also be used in the bathroom as a facial scrubbie. Either way, he looks cute just sitting around doing nothing, maybe hiding in a flower arrangement or center piece on the table.
I love Bienenstich Kuchen, which is a German dessert cake that translates to Bee Sting Cake. I love it because, as most German pastries, it's not overly sweet and is made with only the finest ingredients: real sweet butter, heavy whipping cream and almonds (and honey.)
