One of the first designs I ever made from scratch was a songbird. I made it simple, wanting it to look like a bird sitting on a branch with it's wings tucked in tight. Recently I decided to retire the old design, hoping to rework it into something a bit more new and dynamic. I've got my eye on the silhouette of a crow, maybe a bit of mixed media by using wire for the feet. Despite this, I had one last run of the birds made up and I decided to updo them with a bit of embroidery, beading and, of course, some feathers!
