My latest creation


This little birdie is my latest creation. After making one a few months ago I decided to do another 'cos the basic bird is very easy to construct and is something I can do from scratch - no using other peeps patterns ;) I do want to try to create my own cloth doll, but as I'm no artist even doing the basic pattern is going to be a challenge! I've used a little glass pot which I've weighted and covered with felt and embellished. This is to enable him to stand. I've attached a piece of wire across his foot and through the lid, plus a bit of glue under his foot. The eyes are paper flowers with a sequin and bead. I've used rolled up felt for his beak and metal charms and wire for his headdress.
Thanks for looking :)
