Mr Darius Bird by KanaScott Mr Darius Bird by KanaScott
I really need to do more crafts - both in general and also plushies. Not that this guy is a plushie so much as a """fabric sculpture""", but he has a little squish. :'D Mr Darius BIRD was a birthday gift to RobinF, made with instruction from this fantastic book.

You can't really see in this lighting but his fabric is this awesome soft black damask. o3o The book went for a polymer clay beak, stitched eyes and ragged fabric wings, but I went for a leather beak, bead eyes and silver thread stitched wings, so you can see it's all pretty customisable. His leggies are wire wrapped in black floral tape and still bend just a little for posing. I was well proud of him; I don't do sewing often and even though a few bits of him turned out a little wonky it all adds character, right? ;D

o.O That's one amazing "PLUSHIE"! xD :D It's very realistic to the giant crows here! I especially liked how the legs and feet turned out; been meaning to try making birds, but those bony legs always made me nervous to make. Using floral tape's clever! :D And yes, please do more! (if time permits, of course)
