Little Chubby Bird (girlfriend)

Bird-penguin-crochetA couple of days ago, I posted the pattern for a chubby (and rather cute) bird. However he seemed to be missing a little girlfriend – here she comes. Play with your own creativity when choosing colours for the birds.

It is not allowed to sell the pattern. However, it is allowed to sell finished crocheted birds, as long as you always refer to www.mrsmom.dk and/or @MrsMom.dk.
