I was commissioned by a lovely guy from Canada to make a felt flamingo for his wife (thanks A & K) They already own one of my framed beetles and this is going to be box framed and hung alongside. This piece is approx 75cm tall, as usual all hand cut and hand sewn. I really enjoyed making this piece and plan to make other birds but made up ones in a similar way to how I do the beetles so they can be framed.
