Yes, even a can be cute and cuddly
Imagination can take you
This eclectic flock has some junk in the trunk making them extra squishy and fun to snuggle. Choose your bird or make all three…actually four! This pattern includes templates and instructions to make an ostrich, flamingo, griffon vulture and a turkey vulture.
This project is full of variations and options. As a bonus you have two wing and two tail options to choose from! While I prefer to sew my birds using a sewing machine, they can be sewn together by hand (as one of my pattern testers did). You will be sewing curves and optional applique. Some hand sewing is needed to close openings used for stuffing and some other optional embellishments.
