Have you ever visited Etsy?  It's the best website for crafts.  I did a search of "cockatiels" on Etsy and came across a seller that makes crochet cockatiels.  Sweees sells patterns for normal cockatiels and makes the toys upon request.  I asked Sweees if it would be possible to personalize the pattern for Audrey and Conner.  And yes!  Here's the toy of Conner:

Conner is still terrified of the toy, so I can't show you a picture with them in the same frame.  It took days before I could even keep the toy in the same room as Conner.  But look at the similarity!

Here's a side view.

And a side view of Conner.

Sweees has some skills, huh?

Audrey is not scared of his toy.  On the first night, he even snuggled up next to it, although now he treats it like part of the scenery.

The back is amazing!

This is the toy's permanent position.  They look so similar!

I'm so impressed by someone that can crochet with such precision.  A few years ago, I crocheted a scarf for Jon and I couldn't even make the sides straight.


  1. Liz,
    These bird toys are charming! I've been reading your blog regularly and enjoy both words and pictures.
