As before- somewhere between 3" and 6" ( not including tail feathers!).Anything smaller than 2.5" is just too small, I think, and larger than 10" gets a bit overwhelming (and more expensive to mail!).
ΓΆβ‚¬ΒΆ Made with whatever materials/mediums you prefer-fabric, paper, yarn, metal, etc., etc. !
ΓΆβ‚¬ΒΆ Please be sure your bird :
has a hanger of some sort
has a beak and wings separate from its body (not the beak-I mean it should have a beak!).
is sturdy-so use some sort of padding in between the fabric or paper layers if you are using one of those materials.
has a word of encouragement/positive thinking ie "dream", "fly".. attached somehow. This can be in whatever form you like-a charm, handwritten, embroidered, etc.
has a tail
is something you will be proud to send (as if I need to say that!).
Because these are not dotees they do not have to have a tail in the manner of a dotee doll. Their own tails will suffice! :D
Most of my birds have been made with a template from a sewing book, but I have recently found some absolutely delightful free bird templates online just by typing in "free bird templates" or similar. Free form birds are also always welcome. :)
Any officers who would like to host an international version are quite welcome to do so! :D Postage rates are quite ridiculous and I want these swaps to be affordable for everybody.
