made this for the harry potter "care of magical creatures" swap.
self-made pattern.  Smiley



his wings have wire along the top edge, and i used cable ties in the tail.


this is my favorite picture of 'im. pose of submission!
did a little quilting under the wings as feathers.


ooh. beady little nostrils.
i wanted teardrop shaped eyes, but settled for animal "noses" i found at the fabric store.


wire-bendy feet.
