Here for your further amusement is a previously unspotted bird!
Made from felt this time; the belly of the bird and some of the feathers taken from a small scrap of needle felt I made in the 'Wild Women' workshop ages ago - combined with angelina - fusable fibres - for the remaining feathers. A bit of angelina cut 'a la danielle' for the crest together with some crochet cotton and sewing thread - a black felt beak and a couple of vintage bead caps for eyes and 'voila'. Its remarkable what you can make in an evening with the scraps left from other projects - its more satisfying than therapy and a much cheaper alternative! I'm hooked. My sister has machine sewed some bodies for me so my flock is set to increase - be prepared!
Love to All
