Agapornis Lovebird by AmiAmaLilium Agapornis Lovebird by AmiAmaLilium
Here's my agapornis, they're called lovebirds because once it found a partner, it keeps the partner until the death and they always fly together. Here's a picture of some: [link]

These birds are very kind and need a lot of love. I had one called "Cloud" that passed away some years ago, and I believe it was because he didn't have another little bird to play with, even that I gave him all my love =/.
He was a lovely bird and he used to fly freely(yes, it didn't run away!) and come back to my shoulder. You can see in this old and bad picture of us: [link]

But I understand that now and will remember it when I plan to have another. Right now I can't have because of my cat. Well, this one is about 13cm long, so it's life-sized. There's wire inside his little toes and legs, that I made with a 1.0mm hook and he stands by himself. His beak is also made with a 1.0mm hook and this very thin yarn.

I'll take more pictures when I make another one, just can't decide the color yet. This one is an Agapornis roseicollis and in this [link] you can see the possible colors of this species. What do you think? Should I make in the same color or not? If not, what color should I use now? xD

It's beautiful! Very realistic. You did a wonderful job. Could I order one from you? My bird Buddy, who was my best friend for 12 years, had to be put down last week because he broke his leg and it was not reparable. I've been looking for a stuffed yellow lovebird to hug and remember him with. This guy is too adorable! I can crochet a bit but I am not sure I could make something as complicated as this little guy.

Please send me an email with the subject "lovebird" if you are interested in making one for me. Aurelia_Prima[at]yahoo[dot]com Thank you!

Hello! Sorry for your loss, I went through that once. I sadly don't have much time right now for custom orders, but I hope you can find one artist able to do that for you, maybe even better! Also, if you keep crocheting I'm sure you can learn new things and be able to do this yourself one day (I myself didn't think I was able to). Thanks so much for you interest and I hope your little friend like mine is ok wherever he is now :)
