Folk Art Bird Make-Do

Birds of a Feather,
Flock Together

This is a brand new pattern I came up with this week, I had to fight with it a bit, but I won...

These Primitive Birds are handmade using Calico and Homespun Fabrics.  They have "fanned-out tail feathers" that I needle-sculpted, love the look.  I made Make-Do, make-do stands for them, stained the wood in dark walnut.  The fabrics have been aged for an old timey prim look. These will be perfect for tucking into your Cupboards or Shelf Gatherings.  They are all about 9" tall.

There are three available..

SOLD TY 1821 ~ Red Bird

SOLD TY ~ T 1814 ~ Blue Bird

SOLD TY~  1803 ~ Brown Bird

Sold Individually

Prim Bird Make-Do's are $10.00 each plus Travel Fare.  Your make-do will arrive signed and dated by me, the maker.
