1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Pretty Bird 3D Swap - Gallery on: October 06, 2014 09:54:22 PM
Sheldon pigeon is excellent! And the crocheted robin is really cute and cuddly looking.

Batman owl is a perfect combination! Creatures of the night. And what a lovely drawing of a kiwi! Those are some impressive skills for sure.

I picked up my package from my mom's place this weekend, and the owl and his entourage are safely in my possession. The upholstery fabric gives him a solid, regal bearing. I have him hung in my home office; his disapproving eyebrows remind me to get back to work when my mind wanders too far. He is so fabulous. Two of the little birds keep me company on my desk. It was all three, before a certain cat absconded with the brown one. I believe it has a home in his bed now - a surrogate nest. Thank you so much for your patience and for resending, cmarion3! I really love my birds.

I'm so excited to meet my birds in person! I love all the little details, the buttons and beads - there's so much to look at! The bead monocle is a very nice touch, and I really like the twig as both beak and perch.  I am still quite saddened by the wayward owl's adventures, though - the contrast between the fabrics was very striking, though I also like the muted tones of the one waiting for me.  I hope someone else is enjoying the original set of birds as much as I would have.

The bird silhouette is really nice and classic looking, the ornamentation of the (wood?) it's on really works with it.  And Gunter is adorable, of course.
The raven art doll is incredible! All the little details are gorgeous. I especially like the feet.  I'm beginning to think I have a thing for bird feet.

The quilted flamingo is super cute, I especially like the fabric used on the body.  And that wet felted heron piece is lovely, the background colours make it look like it's in a watery scene somewhere.
Agnes Moorhen is gorgeous! I love those giant feet (aren't all animal babies great for that?) and the fuzzy feathers are just perfect. That is also very nice embroidery work on the puffin magnet and penguin ornament, and the colours are wonderful.

The hummingbird magnet is adorable.  I really like the blues and greens - you did a great job capturing the iridescent colours of the bird!  And that owl is great too.  The touch of colour around the eyes really makes them pop, and the lace is a charming addition.
The dodo tea cozy is awesome. I really like the way it was hand printed, with alternating dodos upside down. And that rooster is stunning - all that detail from a cane! I find myself inspired. Beautiful work!

That budgie looks so cute and squishy! It's neat that he looks like one of your own birds - that must make him extra special for you.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments, everyone! I think I can see more art dolls in my future, especially since I still have a ton of that fur left over. With the right materials (or an approximation thereof) it's not as hard as you might think! I was certainly pleasantly surprised - it took a while, but it wasn't all that difficult.

I can't wait to see what other people have crafted. I want to see this thread full of birds! (I am also waiting on my package with bated breath - if only these birds could fly themselves, I'm sure they would arrive faster!)

I am so glad she arrived safely! The last sculpture I shipped arrived in more than one piece, so I made sure to use plenty of bubble wrap this time around. I am also glad you like the package! I really enjoyed the crafting, and I learned a lot about making posable art dolls to boot.

I'm finished crafting! I am also quite happy with the way the medium turned out, I really hope my partner likes it. I will take photos tomorrow, and see if I can figure out how to ship this business.
