I actually finished something I started!

I started a little bluebird from felt on FSNI and, guess what?  I finished it the very next day!  That has to be some kind of record for me.  Tradition dictates that it should have sat forgotten and neglected in a corner for at least 3 months. 


Yes, his left wing is a little odd looking. Please try not to stare, and don't mention it to him, he's very self conscious about it.


I really enjoyed hand sewing him, I'd forgotten I enjoy hand sewing.  In fact, I enjoyed it so much, it's set me off on a little hand-sewing spate!  Fruits of that labour to come in future posts.

I really hope he doesn't poo on my car.  Oh, and yes, if you were wondering, the Pterydactyl poo IS still on my car.  Yes, I'm very lazy.

In case you missed the first post about him, the pattern was from British magazine Craftseller and he's made with wool felt, very nice, I do like wool felt but I still feel acrylic felt has its place.  He might be a Christmas gift, though I have no idea who for.

Super cute! And if he gets too worried about the wing just get him to watch Finding Nemo. :)
