I Crocheted This Pigeon

I got the idea from Gina. She crocheted a few things for Zelma (Wonky Steve and a skeleton ball, which both totally rock).

Zelma loves this book, "Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late," by Mo Willems. It's about this pigeon who doesn't want to go to bed. He gives a million excuses. "Can I have a glass of water... Studies show that pigeons hardly need any sleep at all... My bunny wants to stay up, too. You can't say no to a bunny, can you?" Zelma smiles. The funny thing is, she generally just goes right to bed, no problem.

And, yes, that is some bitchin' wood paneling in my house, now, isn't it?


  1. Awesome! I am so excited to be spreading the love of crochet toys! Your pigeon is really cool!

    If you know how to read patterns, I can recommend a lot of cool sites for you, too.

  2. I love it! The paneling is pretty hot too.

  3. Aw, I love that pigeon. Nice work. He's not like the pigeons in London, because he has feet instead of greying stumps. I feel so sad for my city pigeons...

  4. Glory, it says, "This video is not available in your country." :( It's a conspiracy.

  5. It was just a pigeon animation by Aardman.

    Have you had a go at amigurumi? Wish I could crochet.
