... black crowes
For the eagle eyed amongst you these might seem familiar - they are a version of Birdy that I made earlier this year. These were also a present for Dan's birthday (yes - I do seem to just make him toys - may need to consider this!).
I made Chris and Rich (that's their names) as we went to see the Black Crowes this week on Dan's birthday which was super fantastic. As the pattern I used for Birdy also had a crow version a pair of black crowes to mark seeing the Black Crowes seemed appropriate. I scaled the pattern down and produced a pair of small little sweeties. They are about 8cm tall with out the legs and were quite a challenge to sew being that small!
It can be tricky to know if people like the gifts you make for them but one of these (Chris I believe) got painted as painting of the day on Dan's birthday as part of his DanYoungDaily blog. I will take it he liked them!
