The Birds

Our challenge this week was ‘animal’ theme.
Anything Animal.

five beaks
I found this wonderful tutorial for these birds and could not pass them up! I was excited to do something with fabric. And tutorials always excite me. There is the possibility that something will turn out EXACTLY as you had intended. And that is tempting.

These were fun, and turned out really well. (Or, let me say, I am happy with them.)
After I did the first two, I changed the pattern. The one from the tutorial has a long beak that turns down a bit. It is more of a tucan, than a sweet ‘bird on the wire’.
(can you see which ones I mean? Two Tucans, and 3 ‘birdies’.)
I just kept making them.

I had a ball.
And THAT is the very definition of ‘craft time’ to me!
