One of the things I love about Spring is the feeling of a fresh start. Flowers are blooming and new life is springing up all over.

It’s also a great time to dust off the cobwebs on your creativity and try something new. That’s why I’m so excited to introduce you to my newest little bird applique free crochet pattern!

It’s quick and easy and even those who are new to crocheting can master it in about 10-20 minutes.

I designed it with an easy to follow pattern that uses small quantities of yarn. It’s a great piece to warm up your hook and learn the basics of crochet! If you’re a seasoned pro, this free crochet pattern will be a quick and easy project.

So, what can you do with this little bird applique? The possibilities are endless! Use it to decorate your purse for Spring or stitch it to your favorite hat.
