Little Birdie

I ended up doing an entirely different
birdie for my old rusty cage.
This one was made with linen & a piece
of Tana Lawn Liberty print,
stuffed with polyfill.
I painted the birdie with fabric paint
using my watercolor round brushes.
I used two different greens
& white for the details.
& made him a little polymer clay beak.

All I need to do now is figure out a way
to secure him to the perch of the cage.
I'll show you when he's living in his new home.

For those of you who asked,
the fabric paint I used is called
Pebeo Setacolor

I cannot believe you did this. (Well, actually, I can.) It is one of your birdie drawings come to life. Just so cool, and I love his little beak.

p.s. pipe cleaners for feet that wrap around perches?

Your sweet bird has to be the most beautiful "little" one I have seen! I LOVE that it looks so much like your drawing hand...
I hope to see more of these!

Thanks for sharing~

Totally adorable!

Here's an idea: You could twist wire into leg shapes, then poke them in the fabric and maybe secure with a tiny dab of glue, then bend the feet around the perch.

Have a great weekend!
