Birdie Inspiration

Last Night I was enjoying some kid free shopping at Shopko. I found my self wandering the Christmas aisles, and came across these adorable little birds. I was tempted to buy one, but then decided I was more tempted to MAKE one! 

So I came home and got to work, The original bird appeared to be needle felted, but it was clear that there was something inside to give it shape. So I decided to make a body and stuff it. Here are some of my pattern pieces. 
 I finished the body, which I made from quilt batting and then stuffed with fiber fill. I  then got started working on the hat. I used grey fleece and red yarn.

My Hubby Helped with the legs, he is brilliant I tell you! Drill & a Vice grip made these perfect little bird legs! 
after a few final touches, you know, the face. He is done!!

So what do you think??
