My New Bird Pattern

I've been working on a little squatty-bird pattern so that I could put them in my Shop.
Here's a photo of my trial and error birds. : )

I basically took my wedding bird pattern...re-positioned the nose, changed up the tail and tweeked the angle of where the legs went in.
I know there are many little fabric birds sold Online, but this is my take on these little cuties!

I had WAY too much fun taking these little guys around the house for their photo shoot.



I only have four in the Shop for now, so grab 'em while you can. : )

Do you think a pair of these could fly over a couple of houses to my house? I would love a black/white one and a teal/white one. Do you do special orders?
