Ophelia The Ostrich
"Ophelia is an adorable little no-sew ostrich plushy, with floppy wings and legs. She's the perfect project to crochet if you don't like attaching pieces to your amigurumi! Wait! How is it no-sew? Easy! Each piece is attached to the body by working it straight onto the round as you go! Ophelia has so much personality, and she even looks great in a variety of colors! This easy crochet bird pattern won't have you sticking your head in the sand! Ophelia is part of the Roly Poly Mystery Collection."
