Could they wear shoes?
Sounded simple - not so simple.
I worked on shoes alone. Tricky, but I was fairly pleased with the results. But the effort and skill level needed to create a shoe is one thing - the idea of trying to do that one the end of a leg with a bird attached was something else.
Here are the shoes I made.
I worked on feet and think I have come up with a design that I like how they look and how they function. Nail polish on toes is really cute and I can't resist.
I am getting better at making the birds. They have grown since the first batch - this group is much taller than the earlier birds.
I am enjoying this creative process so much. Feeling a bit birdie addicted, but it is not affecting the rest of my life just yet, so I am not signing up for a twelve-step program right now. Perhaps in the future I may need some help ;)
