A huge thank you to Craftewoman for her bird pattern. I just used it to make these birds

for a wedding cake topper.

I made a base for the birds out of a piece of wood (precut from the craft store) that I painted white, then covered in faux moss.

A closeup of the bride:


and of the groom:


The bride (and groom!) were so happy with them. My favorite part? Their beaks! I felted them, and then carefully sewed them on.

Adorable. I love the rustic homespun feeling of them.

Those are great craftywoman!  The groom is quite handsome with his top hat at a jaunty angle.  Smiley

I don't suppose you have an action shot of the birdies on the wedding cake?

After several botched prototypes and leg/beak experiments... I finally came up with my very own birdie!



Meet Hattori and Momo!
Hattori is made of scraps from the Joanne's leftover bin.
Momo is made of leftover yukata and kimono fabrics.



Their tails are tsumami folded, a technique used to make Japanese hair accessories.

I was just about to give up because my last 4(!!) prototypes were starting to look like pieces of colorful turd.

I LOVE this set! What a great idea for their tails.
What did you do for the legs?

i made wire legs and wrapped them with magazine paper, then i coated them with gloss. My original plan was to bound it with yarn, but that didn't go so well =\

I'm kinda surprised that no one is making these for Christmas ornaments. I made a mobile. It has it's own topic, but I thought I'd put it here too in case anyone is looking for ideas.

I would love to make these for Christmas ornaments but I am so pressed for time right now! I'll get to them eventually Wink And I already bookmarked your mobile- I'm thinking I might modify your idea for my students.
