Gift of Love and Gift of Life

The Little Yellow Duck project/day is tomorrow!

I feel very sorry I came little bit late with this post and pattern but thinking as this is so very easy one, and fast one to do, you might still have time to make at least one little duck and make someone randome happy tomorrow.

What is the Little Yellow Duck Project?

The Little Yellow Duck Project involves people around the world handcrafting little yellow duck gifts as random acts of kindness that are left in public places for others to find. A special tag on each one invites the finder to take their gift home to brighten their day and to visit this website to register where they found their gift. We hope that the stories and information found here will encourage them to pledge their own random act of kindness by registering to donate blood, bone marrow, organs tissues.”


More about Little Yellow Duck Project you can find on above link. On the same link you can find few of little duck patterns (crochet, knitting, sewing…), as well as special tags that go with ducks.

For this special event I have created simple duckling brooch. Who wouldn’t want and like to put on a little duckling brooch!?


The pattern is already available on Free Patterns page, and you can access it from HERE

My goal is to make at least a dozen little brooches. So far have made them 8, but by tomorrow will make another 4 and leave them random places downtown.

my work in progress:ducksWishing you all wonderful Little Yellow Duck day tomorrow.

  1. Wonderful idea. Everyone needs a little sunshine! I am downloading the pattern as I type this and will start on them tomorrow.

  2. Thank you so much for reminding us about this kind project. Mine will be a little late, but I’m hoping to get some out there soon! And thanks for your sweet duck brooch pattern, too. It’s adorable!

    1. You are welcome Ellisen. It is never late for good cause. When you make your ducks, set them free and enjoy

  3. Happy Little Yellow Duck Day lovely Vanya. Your duck broaches are a delight! <3

    1. Thank you Sharon! These ducks helped me a little find peace just few days after my 11 year dog died in my arms. I know dogs, can’t compare to humans, but I didn’t loose just a dog. She was my family and friend. All my ducks had tags and were named Binah. Releasing Binah ducks random places I felt good knowing that at least her name will be spoken around and kept by lucky owners. Next year will make a lot more Binah ducks 🙂

      1. I feel for you dear Vanja. I have 2 senior dogs which give me so much joy. God bless your Binah. <3 <3 <3

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this special idea! I will be following your lead, and make as many as I can this afternoon and tonight!

    1. You are welcome Cindy. Hope you made at least 3! I had wonderful time releasing ducks and looking forward to make and release them next year too.

  5. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking part in the Little Yellow Duck Project and creating this GORGEOUS design for us! I can not wait to make my own batch of brooches!

    1. You are the most welcome. Thanks to wonderful friends who have introduced me to this project I had opportunity to participate this year. And it felt good! Please feel free to use the pattern in the future, as well as Quack pattern I made some time ago. Looking forward to next year when I hope I will release at least 100 ducklings instead of dozen I released this year. Thank you Emma for LYDP and all you do! Hugs
