Here we have an example of the Lesser Spotted Tattered!
This rare bird is about to migrate to Australia to join Jo's project and will eventually nestle in a tree top far away!
I didn't pink the edges of the fabric feathers so its fraying gently, the thread plume is also rather haphazard and the red eyes give it a slightly alarming look!
Made from part of a pillowcase from Katie's pile at LSA and bits of my French General stash - odd bits of crochet silk and cotton and the mad red eyes are vintage diamonte in a metal fitting the name of which escapes me!
Hope you like it Jo! It will be winging its way (well via airmail!) to Aus today! If I get chance I'll make another and send before your deadline of December.
Love to All
