    Super cute! Love the use of ric rac. I made one yesterday and used half square triangles. Didn't turn out as I envisioned because of where I placed beak and comb. Maybe next time... I used a dense polyfil because that's what I had but I'd like to get some walnut shells. No pet stores in town and M* is out of stock.

    Actually my guild is hosting a guild show and tell next spring and we are all making these as handouts. I have twelve of them wandering endlessly bumping into everything because they have no eyes yet. They are so cute too!!!

    I read that the steel wool will sharpen your pins but if you leave them in the pin cushion it will rust them.

    I have used the walnut shells and have also used fiber-fil from Walmart. Both work great. I will see if I can find some of my pictures and post. They are so fun to make and give personalities to.

    So cute! I use the crushed walnut shells, they also keep your pins sharpened.

    I fill the top half of mine with fiber-fill and the bottom with dried lentils. My DD dogs got a hold of hers and ripped it up to get to the lentils. She has a dog who belonged to a homeless man and he will eat anything. The dog, not the homeless man.
