fabric book pages

 This fabric book-page is made for Margreet in the Netherlands. Margreet's theme is birds.
 First I tried to make a real bird but that didn't work for me.
Then I made this whimsical bird and I liked it right away and Margreet also liked it.
 The background is made from my rust-dyed fabric and the bird is made from fabrics and lace I dyed with black currants peel. The green crochet "grass" is the edge from an old doily.
Below the fabric page Ulla in Sweden made for me with the theme: Oriental.
The size of those pages is 15 x 15 cm. ( 6 inch square)

DEn fuglen var skikkelig morsom. Man blir i godt humør av den fuglen der. :)

Jeg håper du får en fin uke nå frem mot jul. Kos deg masse.

Hei Ati. For en koselig fugl, "tykk" og god i magen av masse fuglefrø. Nydelig. Ha en fin kveld. Klem Ruth.

I saw this one on flickr, too, and just loved it! It reminds me so much of all the funny chickens a bunch of us were doing a few years back. I loved those! The colors on your bird are so cheerfully spring-like for the cold outside.
