Remember the little "procrastination bird" that I made before Christmas? Well, a couple days ago I was finally able to mail off a project that I have been working on with a January 3 deadline. (More about that later) So I went back to my bird thought and tried out some of my ideas. Improvements to the prototype include edge finish on the wings, the way I attach the wings and most important to me, a better beak design.
You will notice that these three birds have three different sized beaks. It was a "too small, too big, and ah, just right" experiment, though I don't really dislike any of them. Picking the fabrics is the best part.
