My hubby bought this bird cage at a rummage sale for 2.00. I couldn't stand not using it. But we don't have a bird, so decided to see if I could find a pattern for a crocheted bird. I went to my favorite place to look for patterns, Crochet Pattern Central. I found this really cute pattern for this bird there. So now my bird cage has a bird in it. The bird cage sits on our deck, so the little bird won't last long in the weather, but he's really easy to make, so I can make a new one when he gets weather worn. The pattern is here.
