What do you do when your kids come to you with a crazy idea that requires your sewing skills?
In this case, my two oldest children wanted to design some stuffed-animal birds... specifically they have a dear friend who owns a stuffed macaw. They own a snowy owl. Somehow, these two star-crossed lovers decided to marry and have baby birds, and I was asked to make this possible.
It started with design drawings by my eldest. She wanted to make two birds: one colored like a macaw but with owl-like eyes, the other colored like an owl but with colored wings and regular macaw eyes. And my middle child decided she wanted a African Bee-eater.
Here is a photo of the progeny with their parents. What do you think?
Can I tell you how hard those small round heads were to make?!?! Yikes!
