Crochet is about more than creating blankets and clothing. Did you know that there is a technique called amigurumi that invites you to make adorable figures from yarn and a hook? Crafter Tanya Zhylyayeva uses this approach to construct her own flock of parrots, lovebirds, cockatiels, and more. In her popular Etsy shop, you can purchase one of her ready-made birds as well as downloadable patterns to try on your own.

Zhylyayeva's colorful birds celebrate their real-life counterparts. At nearly seven inches tall, their tiny feet are posable and will perch on your finger like a tiny confidante. Their colorful plumage is left up to you. You can purchase the bird as is, but Zhylyayeva has made her designs fully customizable as a way to honor a beloved bird you’ve lost. Simply send her a picture of the creature and she’ll craft the sculpture in its likeness.

Form your own flock by visiting Zhylyayeva’s Etsy shop called TNGiftsUA.

Tanya Zhylyayeva creates amigurumi bird sculptures that are lifelike recreations of parrots, lovebirds, and more.
