There are affiliate links below, if you are unsure of what affiliate links are please go to “Disclosures/Disclaimers” and “Privacy Policy” at the top of my HOME page. Affiliate links basically allow me to receive a very small referral fee, but only if you make purchases. Just because you go to the link doesn’t mean that I will receive a referral fee.

I am so happy that Helenmay Crochet Special Member, from the year 2018, Jodie R. made a Christmas Hot Pad request. I informed her that more than likely I wouldn’t be able to complete this crochet request for  Christmas (2018), but it will be complete before Christmas 2019. Jodie wanted me to make a beginner Tunisian Crochet YouTube video tutorial for the Christmas Hot Pad. I ended up making the YouTube video tutorial for a Hot Pad, Tawashi, and/or Pillow!  The Tunisian Crochet Cardinal Pillow turned out really gorgeous and is one of my personal favorites! I use the finished cardinal hot pad in my own kitchen.

I saw another crochet blogger post about the Netherlands “Longest Line of Birds,” and I remembered Jodie’s crochet project request. So, I decided to use the same bird that Jodie R. requested for her Christmas Hot Pad request for the “Longest Line of Birds.” I have already finished the Crochet Christmas Cardinal amigurumi that was sent to the Netherlands on 18Mar19. I loved how it turned out and the YouTube video tutorial is at the end of this blog post.

I decided to make a Crochet-Along (CAL) for my Helenmay Crochet Amigurumi Christmas Cardinal as I write the PDF written pattern, which will be available for sale in Ravelry when it is complete. I will also remove the free CAL on my blog at that time.
