Birdy takes flight!

FQ Name tag ready to fly to a new home !

Well everyone wanted to give the bird legs and who am I to resist overwhelming popular opinion!??

I had though of creating some beaded legs on wire but thought they might catch on clothing so then I thought of legs that could be detached - at that point I thought Nicky you are going too far!  The bird will just have to stay legless.

After all your excitement about legs I thought about them again!  And with some helpful suggestions from the lovely Helen I realised they didn't need to be made of wire!  

So here is the birdy with cotton legs as suggested by Helen and a bit of wing stitching as requested by Katy!

Now I said I was going to bling things up with a beaded lanyard.

Well my partner has two options

Daytime with matching fabric lanyard

And Evening with beaded number

Now just to keep it all tidy I thought a pouch was in order and here it is... 

Quirky birdy side up....

The whole package...

Close up of twitter birds... and what could be hiding under those gorgeous buttons?  I wonder!  Or should I say who?

Well until she gets it I couldn't possibly comment....!  But you can guess if you like....
