Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

Hi there! I just wanted to share a little birdie I made with you.

This lil' chickadee was made out of some bits of felt I had and scraps from an old gray tee shirt. I was struck with inspiration at Christmas time when I really wanted to make some kind of a satchel filled with balsam fir needles (I love that smell!). I decided to think outside of the box! He's kind of patternless and made up on the spot; I'm actually rather surprised he came out as symmetrical as he did.

I wish I could share how wonderful he smells! It was especially nice to have him for the 6 months I was living in Missouri, far away from my beloved balsam firs. Thanks for looking!

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

He's sweet, and if he smells of home, that must be amazing too. I do like your made up on the spot pattern, you could do a whole range of different birds if you have that much skill with patterns.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
