I was fiddling around with a pipe cleaner and some felt scraps tonight and came up with this bird. She started with a pattern from page 22 of Aranzi Aronzo - Cuter Book. I just got this book and want to make everything in it :)
I folded the pipe cleaner in half and sewed it into the body of the bird. There is a wee bit of stuffing in the head. After I got the body stitched up I realized the bird pattern has no wings! So, I added a wing on each side with a french knot so you can flap the wings a bit.
It's like a flamingo and a sparrow had a baby together...
