WIP - birds

Here's another little craft project I've begun. It's going to turn into the most wonderful birthday gift, so I need to keep it a secret for a little while. Still, aren't these little birdies cute? They are an excellent way to use up scraps. 

They are completely hand-stitched and didn't take nearly as long to do as I thought they might. I made the four above in around two hours (though I'd cut the fabrics a couple of weeks ago, so that helped). They are stuffed with Poly-Fil and then a bit of flax to give them some weight. I stuffed more Poly-Fil in after the flax so it wouldn't all fall into their tails, which I want to keep unstuffed. Pretty cute, huh? I have big plans for these little guys, but they need six more siblings first.
