Day 107: A Bird for my Mom

Today was Mother's Day, so naturally I had to make a bird for my Mom.  I'm going down to visit my parents this Thursday, so I'll bring it with me.
This pattern was from Carolyn Vosburg Hall's book, Sewing Tiny Toys, see the bat on Day 42 for another pattern from this book.  This little bird was a surprisingly complex and intricate design:  with darts, slots, and curves, and it took all day to make up.  Vosburg Hall is a very accomplished pattern-draftsman.  I was amazed to see how her very odd-shaped pattern pieces all came together to make a very charming little creature.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
