Since then I have made many a little bird, added ribbon wings, pleated tails, felted eyes and wrapped sticks in wool to ensure them a comfortable perch. I have also received little birds as treasured gifts from dear friends (thanks Bree).
Novice or know all, you should spread some bird love on this Public Holiday.

P.s - I have a dream of making a HUGE bird to use like an ottoman in our living room. The kids could ride it, dive onto it and generally get it grubby. Dave has a massive printer at work and printed me off the pattern... just gotta do it. Do it Emily, just do it.
