Description

The pattern comes from Little Things to Sew and was great to follow. The only mini alteration I made to the original is the added piping on the feet, the beak (cut from an old skirt of mine) and the belly (the latter then also being ‘stitched in the ditch’). The original pattern pieces have practical pivoting dots, so it’s really easy to add the piping; just cut little notches where the piping will meet the dots to curve the cord along the stitches.
