Making soft birds and birdhouses

Digital print layout for 4 cockney sparrows. Inspired by the pearly Kings and Queens of the east end of London. Cutting out the pieces.
I machine stitch the main body.

Birds and birdhouses in progress.

Empty bodies ready to be stuffed and embellished.

Fimo and wire legs

Sparrow decorated with vintage mother of pearl buttons, sequins and beads.

All the decoration is hand stitched.

The finished cockney sparrow.
