I just checked and she's arrived at her new home! Now I can share her. Here is the sweet little bird I made for this fun swap hosted by YarniGras! I hope her new mom enjoys her as much as I did!
On her nest
She is made of Dupioni Raw Silk and has embroidered wings and tail feathers. Of course there has to be a bit of bling and some matching flowers.
I had a great time with her tail. I saw an embroider design that had this pattern in it so I cropped the design, snipped out what I didn't want and made an awesome tail.
Her wings were something that I sort of just winged :). I drew a simple shape and digitized it for embroidery then added some detail. I loved how they turned out.
Full Shot of Nest
I have no idea what this was in it's former life. It was black and had a little cap attached to it by a wire. I though maybe it held an oil lantern of some sort. Regardless, it made the perfect stand for my little bird.
One of the add ins I included with my birdie was the above Owl Clips I found at Ikea - So much fun! I also made a domino pendant for my swap partner but I forgot to take a picture of it - oops!
