yesterday i finally finished the knitted birdie!
last week i sewed all the parts together but i still had to give this little fellow eyes and a beak... which is really important, cause the face really makes the character of the toy! i started with embroidered eyes, but that didn't really work, so i decided to go for buttons and felt.
and now he's finally finished.. and i think it's going to be hard to give him away!
he has the cutest dangly legs... :)
and a very friendly face.
he was really easy to knit, too! i can recommend donna wilson's book to anyone who wants to knit toys. her toys are quirky and cute, but most of all a lot of fun to make. the patterns are well written and easy to follow. :)
enjoy your easter monday, by the way!
