Shabby Birdie

I just wanted to share with you a little shabby birdie that I included with an order for someone on Etsy.  It is going with four of my Chenille Stockings - so I made it all white to go with them.  I am trying to just go the extra mile with my orders for my Etsy shop, so thought it would be exciting to get a Christmas ornament that I wasn't expecting.
 I used a scrap of the Chenille to make the bird body and then a scrap of a floral cotton for the wing.
 I little stuffing makes this little birdie seem more real.
I especially love the clear antique button, with it's original threads still in the holes.  Love it!

Let me know what you think and check out the blogs I love to link up to on the right column.  Oh, and if you are inclined, please check out my Etsy Shop.  I've been listing a lot of things for Christmas gifts.
