Barborosso the Pirate Bird


A while ago I bookmarked a great free pattern over at spoolwesing.com for a bird mobile. You can find the original post about the birds here. I haven't sewn since I was in primary school, and have been meaning to attempt to sew one of these little guys for a while.

On the weekend I met up with a good friend who I haven't seen in a while, and I thought she might appreciate a little birdshaped gift. I'm pretty pleased with my first attempt, however his beak is a little misshapen and my opinion he looks like a mean and nasty pirate bird. Perhaps he needs an eye patch to complete the look. So I had a another go:


Check out the original post or the Flickr Group for more pictures of birds, and the complete mobiles. The pattern (with beginner proof instructions) is available in the side bar of Spool Sewing's Blog.
