I have had this bird tutorial on my desktop what feels like ages waiting patiently to be tried and the final outcome to be enjoyed.
I got the pattern from these crafty people. The pattern is well drafted and easy to make.
The original idea was a bird mobile and now I am sorry my children didn't have such a cool thing when they were babies. However I plan to amend that. First I am going to use the birds as ornaments and put them on the Christmas tree, and when summer comes I am going to make a mobile and hang it on the balcony. What a sight that would be! And during the transitional period... well I know I'll think of something.
I used vintage scarves for my feathered friends.
It was a real pleasure watching my children play with them.
