The 10-minute baby bird is a completely no-sew amigurumi pattern! The beak and feet are crocheted onto its round, chubby body. With different yarn colors, you can crochet this tiny stuffed bird as a mallard duck, chick/chicken/hen, dove, or more! You can even attach a keyring to the top of its head to turn it into a mini keychain. 

About the Pattern

  • No-sew
  • Easy / beginner-friendly
  • Works up quickly (takes me less than 10 minutes for one!)
  • Stashbuster project; great for using up leftover yarn scraps
  • Can be turned into a keychain
  • Available as a FREE video tutorial


There are many ways to make use of this pattern, such as: 
  • Keychain: add a keyring
  • Class Valentine's Day Present: with only 10 minutes needed for each bird, you can whip up a flock for your child's entire class in no time!  
  • Easter Gift: perfect as a non-candy surprise to hide in plastic Easter eggs, or to add to your little one's Easter basket
  • Gift: for family and friends as a birthday gift, Christmas holiday gift
  • "Pocket pal" or fidget: suitable as a portable therapy aid or security toy for kids
  • Craft fair product: sell it at markets; it's the perfect market prep pattern to work up because it's quick and easy. Add it to your bargain basket! 


    This pattern is designed with super bulky weight chenille velvet yarn. I used Hobbii's Honey Bunny yarn, which produces a plush amigurumi! If you'd like a smaller version of this pattern, you're welcome to use thinner yarns and a smaller hook.
