Free crochet pattern : hummingbird

This little hummingbird has been designer specially for the numerous CAL 2015 Flight of Fancy Meet&Greet visits.

Now the CAL is officially finished, I am happy to share the pattern with you. Today I have written the pattern for the hummingbird, and made the crochet chart as well. Ik ontwierp dit kolibri vogeltje (en een pauwtje) speciaal voor de talrijke inspirerende Meet&Greet bezoeken aan de winkels die me boekten tijdens de Scheepjes CAL 2015 Flight of Fancy.

More information about our wonderfull Flight of Fancy CAL can be found here  :  ENG facebook group,   Scheepjes website and Ravelry.
