Welcome to the Sweet Nothings Crochet blog for free crochet patterns with my original designs and creations. :)
Over the years, I've found that there are a lot of free charts available on the net, so as I make the project off that chart, I write down my notes and share them here on my blog. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by.

PREEMIE CAPS 7 MATILDA – The white Angry Bird
– The white Angry Bird
back to my series of preemie caps that I’ve made for a donation to the hospitals in Australia.
This birdie beanie went to the Redland hospital Charity centre at Cleveland.
this blog I thought I’d make a series of the famous birds – frankly I don’t
know what all this fuss is about (with these birds I mean :-/) but they’re
wildly popular and a friend suggested I make them – so here goes.This is the image I found of the whole series
of birds – didn’t even know there were so many of them!
may I, as usual, request you to please go through my notes for ideas on
what I’ve done. I’ve basically used stuff toy patterns to make my caps so with
this blog you get a cap and a stuff toy.
you for joining me in our fun creativity session today.
the little birds have eyes, a beak and head feathers – and for each of these
I’ve just worked with a 3.5mm crochet hook and tightened the stitches a
bit.I have not used any polyfill
stuffing anywhere as these caps are intended for preemies in the NICU.If working for a slightly older kid, then you
could use polyfill if you’d like.May I
suggest that you first fill your poly-fill into a stocking and then stuff – to
keep it non-allergic and super safe.
This is my stocking ball, just
for your info (though have not used it for any of my caps here)
have also not made tail feathers for any of them as my preemie babies are going
to be lying down and they may hurt the back of the head.If making yours for an older child, go crazy
and spread huge smiles.
of the angry birds have a slightly different shape, so come on along and see
what I’ve done with this cute range.
let’s check out how we’re working on Matilda, the white angry bird.
Matilda –White angry bird cap
found this free pattern for a Matilda stuff toy on Ravelry at
What I’ve done with this pattern : I used the pattern for the
body of the stuff toy and worked it only till the length I needed as always. In
case you are confused, this pattern is just like one I’ve used for the
caterpillar cap (in an earlier blog). We need to get a slightly conical shape,
as against a full semicircle and so the difference.
again, work it only for the length and circumference you need, work all the
embellishments as instructed and you’ll have a cute cap.I did not work in the tail feathers – once
again as my caps are intended for preemie babies who will be lying down, it
makes no sense.
if you are making it for an older child, it may look cute coming out from the
base of the cap at the back.
link, you get a cap and a stuff toy. Cool huh?
