Another Little Bird

This pretty little pink bird is another Christmas ornament gift.
Its body is made of hand-marbled fabric, its headdress is pink fuzzy yarn, and iridescent glitter glue sparkles its wings and underbody.

Remember the two small birds made of hand-painted leather? This is where they live in my friend, Alicia's, house.
They've alighted on the macrame plant hanger I made for her about forty years ago. Go here to read about the making of these two.

PS: See these and many more birds by clicking on the "Bird" Picasa album in the sidebar.

I finally had time to look at all your birds. How adorable are they. I see you make them for sick children.
They must lift their spirits with their happy colorful little bodies.
I love them!

Thank you, Barbara, but the birds made for sick children is a project that "teodo" got going with her friends in Italy. They used my pattern to make the basic bird and came up with legs and facial features that are suitable for toys.

Love your birds, Nellie! What a fun idea. I've enjoyed reading your blog, especially the postings about pounding leaves and flowers.
I'll be back!
