Birds of a feather

I've had a few comments and enquiries about my birds. Here's some information:

I had in mind a flock of brightly coloured birds to decorate the craft stall next month. I finally settled on two shapes: my "chicken" shaped bird and one other, courtesy of Nellie Durand. I've used Nellie's pattern before, but I gave my birds nice big feet to make them stand up better.

Here's my flock of bigfoot birds:

They are made from left-over scraps of quilted or "embellisher" fabric and have needlefelted beaks.

This one is my current favourite, made from my "chicken" shaped body pattern with Nellie's wings.
