I was told that my Granddaughter, Hope, really loved a baby TV programme called Egg Bird.
A quick Google showed me what it was all about. Colourful egg shaped characters that bounce about in a jolly manner.
I decided to try and make her one.
There seemed to be plenty of different coloured Egg Birds, so I just chose a colour changing yarn that I thought would do the trick without me having to worry about colour changes / patterns etc...
I made a basic egg shape....
Then added feet, eyes, hair and a beak! Done! So simple, yet she LOVED it.
And a nice size to hug.
I have the pattern scribbled down, if anyone fancies it I shall write it up :)
