My birdies have landed at Helen's house all the way over in Perth. I am so glad they made it there safely as I was beginning to worry about them. And Helen's little girls have given them a wondeful welcome, so they have a lovely new home. Here they are waiting patiently to be packaged up before their journey.
I played around with a few different patterns to make these and I kept coming back to the most simple 'cushion' style. I am still not 100% happy with them, but I have a few more to make so will hopefully perfect the pattern soon.
I have also been working on a babysafe version with different textures including crinkly wings and lots of nice chewable parts.
