Sewing Soft Sculpture Patchwork Fabric Birds

Sewn by both hand and machine, two bird soft sculptures with patchwork bodies.
Full of texture and colour, this bird softie is in shades of turquoise, pink, orange, green and yellow with a raw edge patchwork body and red wings. The patchwork is heavily embellished with colourful free-motion embroidery stitching in shades of blue, orange, pink and red creating a new rustic durable surface. The red wings feature feathery hand embroidery stitches in orange.

The body of this purple bird softie is created from a patchwork of fabrics with raw edges exposed creating frayed edges and loose threads. In shades of crayon purple and pink with violet purple wings, this art doll has a pouty pink beak.

Sewing, stuffing and embellishing these birds requires hours of craftswomanship and there is joy in every stitch.
