american crow~

a stuffed felt crow that i did from the nov/dec 2007 issue of cloth~paper~scissors mag.~i started small just too see how it would go~his eye is a button sewn on with yellow emb.thread~but its washed out by the camera flash~now i want to try doing a larger one~and get some funky colors and maybe fibers going on~i sewed a bell to his beak~crows do like shiney things :)

Hi Tammy
Your crow is awesome...... Way to go..
Believe it or not I was reading that very article this evening.... They are soooooooo cute. I love them, Infact that's why I called my webpage and blog"Magpies Collectables" Magpies/crows do love shiny objects and so do I!!!
I am busy taking an online doll class, otherwise I would grab some felt and try one.....

TTUL
((((hugs))))

Hey Girl! I saw those crows in CPS mag and fell in love with them. They have such a folk artsy look - even Mexican folk artsy - I love what you did with it. I want to try to make one. How cute to do a series of several and mount them somehow on a fence on the wall. Hmmm,,,,, and idea....!
