Hama Beads and a Felt Bird

Pinky wanted to make a gift for a friend's birthday so after pursuing a variety of ideas in just as wide a variety of materials we settled for an old favourite which always comes up trumps: Hama beads :-)

We got the pattern free from here and adapted it slightly so that she could thread a ribbon through it.  I also noticed that she changed the mouth to red - can't think who she takes after, wanting to put her own stamp on things ;-)

Last year Pinky made the same child this lovely felt bird:

And if you're wondering if there's a reason she has made her friend things to hang up both last year and this, the answer is yes!  Pinky's friend shares her bedroom with a toddler so she has tried to make things which can be hung up out of the toddler's reach so the toddler doesn't break them, or more importantly swallow a part of them and choke!
