From the pattern given to us by Bev, we cut out the pieces in our fabrics.
We cut four pieces for the feet and sewed two together with some stiffening between the material. Then we made a second foot.
For the legs we wrapped ribbon/material around two twisted pipe cleaners.
We made a special fold for the beak and then placed it in the body seam as we sewed the body. This caused a lot of hilarity as some of us muddled our back, front and top and bottom with some peculiarly placed beaks!!!!
We had great fun making our birds and they are definitely the dandiest birds ever seen!
A big thank you to Bev for showing us how to make Dandy Birds, letting us have fun and sending us home with a finished item!!!!!!!
Please remember the Christmas competition is a Dandy Bird!!!!!
