bird pincushion

bird pincushion,
originally uploaded by Pinyon Creek Stitchin'.
This is the other pincushion that I completed....was sposed to be for a swap...but decided against...for a variety of reasons. Anywhoo....this little birdie is roosted on top of a little wooden pedestal with some silk ribbon loops beneath him to create the appearance of a nest. I also did a detached buttonhole type fringe on his back wings and tail to add to the appearance of feathers. I liked the fabric on the wings...it rather appears to be feathers as well. This little guy was originally patterned to be a purse, but I altered it a bit and made the pincushion. Came out ok for "winging" it, I think!
