These are awesome! We're doing a court house wedding in August and these would be perfect to use then and then again when we have our ceremony. Thanks so much for the pattern.

These are sooo cute! I have been working on this for a few days now...but I realized i messed up when I was almost done...I made the bird flat instead of joined and round...tried seaming it up, but it didn't look right when I started the tail so I ripped the whole thing out and am going to try again tonight!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write out the pattern!!! It is so intricately shaped, I was continually marveling at your math skillz!

I'm making a pair of these for my sister, who is using lovebirds as her wedding symbol; I'll definitely post pics when I finally get them right.
