I made this for the OTT Swap Secret Pal Edition Swap and had so much fun stalking my partner on a questionnaire from an unrelated swap my partner stated she liked functional items with on exception- birds because they are decorative. Challenge accepted! I set out to make a decorative yet functional bird and think I achieved just that

the bird pincushion is perched on a seam ripper branch, the leaf collar is a thread cutter, the plumes, eggs and smaller birds are pins and the tail and wings hold the needles









Happy Crafting!

This is so adorable!! I love the poly clay pins you made and it's so clever to make the branch a seam ripper!
