embroidered bird brooches gen 1

Generation I, looking mighty flat and a tad blah. Making gen II now with a bit of stuffing. I Probably will turn the originals from brooches into hanging decorations or something twee.

Embroidered brooches

I just started to make some embroidered bird brooches.
A quick ink pen sketch on Calico with 2X coloured thread embroidery. Some bad lowlight photobooth images. I will take some photos in the daylight tomorrow.
1X House Sparrow
1X White throated sparrow
1X House Finch
1X Carolina wren

The next batch i make will have some stuffing....these guys are just too flat and stiff looking.
Materials: Calico, thread, ink pen, card, felt/fabric.
