wool roving birds

A fanciful, bright vision for a cold, spring day.


Last summer, I made some of these butterflies
here

That were inspired by the roving birds here

Last night, I made a batch of birds from the tutorial.


Just what the weather ordered.

Then I put them on a stick. They fly for real when the wind blows.

I like these things on a string. They are just right for little kids who want a kite, but can't handle all the string. Magical.

Give it a try.

ciao,
Amanda

The children had a lovely time making ours but we made them in only one colour
Blessings
