Ages ago, I made a papier mache boat. Do you remember? And I wanted a bird to go in it. But, you know how it is, I had in mind the perfect bird. And, I just couldn't find a pattern.
Every so often I'd look at the boat, and the bird that was looking after it. And wonder, will I ever find the right birdie sailor?
So, a couple of weeks ago, while wandering around the internet, something prompted me to go on a bird hunt. And I found just what I had pictured in my mind. I bought the pattern from The Paper Shed, although this pattern doesn't seem to be available at the moment. But, there's an owl one! I may just have to go shopping there again!
The pattern arrived, and after about an hour or so, I had the sweetest little bird for my boat.
I think there may be a little flock of these on the horizon.
