This is my pattern/tutorial for a hanging Birdie Decoration. A completely useless object of course, but very cute all the same. It's an easy project to make, great for using up odds and ends of yarn and can be used.
Some crafting inspiration for beginner crochet peeps stitchy envelope pattern at Violet Bella and it only uses one stitch! It seems a bit too precious to give to the postman, so we’re thinking maybe a mix CD cover or case to store needful things.
Great idea: "For this blanket, Jane used double moss stitch and knit five "scarves" that were then sewn into one big blanket." Find a scarf pattern (or two) and then make scarves in to a blanket. More interesting than knitting a whole blanket!
