We went to visit friends in August who have 3 cockatiels.  As a thank-you gift I later made a felt 'tiel plushie.  It was my first attempt making a felt plushie, as I am usually the queen of sewing machine stuffed animals.  Nonetheless, I'm really pleased with how he turned out. 

It's more of a 'tiel interpretation than a direct anatomical representation.  I used what felt I had on hand, and I had no grey...



Other side:



Front:



And full side view, so you can see his crest:



He's all hand-sewn.  For the crest, I used pipe-cleaners inside so it's fully poseable perfect for those "shocked" occasions.  His feet are also pipe-cleaners. 

Comments, criticisms, questions welcome!!

Do you watch the Anime Bleach? It reminds me of the episodes with the cockatiel. Very very cute!

The first thing to pop in my head was "Wow, that looks like Chad's bird!"

Great job, lil_abi!

They laugh at me because I'm different.
I pity them because they're all the same.

My inspiration was photographs of real 'tiels.  I...ulp...don't have cable, so I do not often watch anime.  I'm still pleased with how cartoony he is and also evocative of an actual 'tiel.
