Chubby Bird Softies - OPAM March

At Christmas, (Oh it seems like an age ago) I took part in the Chooky Blue Christmas swap and I was lucky enough to receive a great parcel from Jan at Little Red Hen.
Inside the parcel were many gorgeous hand made loveliness including a pattern craft card to make the little fella below...........
 Meet..........Chubby Bird.  Made out of light blue and white felt.  He is a lovely full round shape, a bit like a tennis ball!  I will confess to deciding to enlarge the templates as they looked a bit too small........however, I may have enlarged them a bit too much as he really is quite big.
French knot eyes and detailing on his chubby tummy and a fun beak pointing skyward.
See what I mean about being rather round!  He is great though and Sophie soon spotted him sitting on the windowsill in the living room.
I think that he will be a regular around the house and may find himself in a certain little girls bedroom, but for now he will be spending Easter with us.
It has been a glorious day here in Cornwall and we even managed a few hours out in the garden today.
Have a great weekend.
